Open IP-based access controllers

Axis network door controllers are non-proprietary and open IP-based access controllers, suitable for small and medium-sized businesses, as well as larger enterprises.

Customers are increasingly asking for systems that allow them to manage video, access control, intrusion detection, building management, etc. from a single interface. This represents an opportunity to expand, for example, your video management system to also include access control management.

Integration tools

Axis has been deeply involved in developing the ONVIF profile C and A specifications, and our network door controllers conform to these profiles. However, new features are usually first introduced in VAPIX, since it takes some time to get them supported via ONVIF. Axis specific-features are only supported via VAPIX. 
Feedback from partners who integrated Axis network door controllers in their software has been very positive. The integration was fast, easy and very smooth.

NOTE: Be sure to always use the latest VAPIX firmware version for your network door controller.
