Multipurpose speaker

These multipurpose, easy to integrate, all-in-one solutions can be used to make general live or prerecorded voice messages, deliver safety instructions or to proactively warn off intruders. You can also play background music, helping to increase business efficiency and customer experience. And, thanks to embedded AXIS Audio Manager Edge, you can manage and control your audio system via any standard web browser either locally or remotely.

If you need to coordinate audio across different sites, a standard version of our multisite management software, AXIS Audio Manager Center, is available free of charge.

Audio made smart and easy

Based on open standards, AXIS C12 Series offers easy integration with other systems like your video management software (VMS), Voice over IP (VoIP) telephony (using SIP), and with analytics from Axis and our partners. These flexible, scalable, and cost-effective solutions are installed on the standard network without the need for additional audio equipment or cabling. Packed with smart features, these speakers feature a built-in microphone enabling remote health testing and two-way audio. They also have a preconfigured digital signal processor (DSP) that produces clear voice every time. Other smart features are support for I/O and LED among other things.

Discreet ceiling installation

Designed to blend seamlessly into any surroundings, these speakers can be repainted in any color and offer discreet recessed ceiling installation. They include a backbox that meets plenum requirements allowing for secure installation and helping to limit unwanted noise spreading above the ceiling into other areas. They’re ideal for indoor installation across various segments and can also be used in protected outdoor areas like under the eaves.

Available in two different sizes, they offer easy installation and integration.
