You’ll discover Axis video encoders offer a number of intelligent video features, such as multi-window video motion detection, audio detection and active tampering alarm. They have configurable inputs/outputs for connections to external devices, such as sensors and relays. When the system detects an event, it automatically records it and sends alerts, such as emails and SMS, activates lights, opens or closes doors and sounds alarms.
Extend the possibilities of your analog CCTV system
By combining an analog CCTV system with a network video system, you can easily and cost-effectively expand the surveillance system, and reduce total installation and maintenance costs. Whether you have fixed, pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) or fixed dome cameras, you can connect them to an Axis video encoder. You can retain your analog cameras and complement them with IP cameras to build your network video surveillance system. It’s a cost-effective way to expand your surveillance system, and protect your analog investment.
An IP-based surveillance system will give you the ability to secure people and property, or monitor equipment and facilities, remotely from anywhere there is a networked computer. In addition, by utilizing the serial ports of a video encoder, you can remotely control existing equipment such as pan/tilt/zoom devices or time-lapse tape recorders.
