Compact, discreet, and flexible

AXIS P12 Modular Camera Series offers various indoor sensor types including a thumb-sized sensor unit, a tiny, pinhole-sized sensor unit, and a small dome-shaped sensor unit. All cameras come with a small, compact main unit that connects to the sensor unit via a cable, so the two parts can be placed separately for even more discreet installation. Plus, the series offers a variant with a 2.8-6 mm varifocal lens, so you can adjust the field of view and choose between clear overviews or detailed close-ups.

AXIS P1275 Mk II Modular Varifocal Dome Camera AXIS P1275 Mk II Modular Varifocal Dome Camera is one of three product versions in the series.

Great image quality and support for advanced analytics

AXIS P12 Series offers 1080p resolution and wide area coverage. Axis Zipstream significantly reduces bandwidth and storage requirements. And WDR ensures clarity even when there’s both dark and light areas in a scene. Plus, a deep learning processing unit enables the use of advanced analytics. For instance, AXIS Object Analytics can detect and classify different types of objects. With support for ACAP version 4, you can add value to your system with tailor-made applications based on deep learning on the edge. And AXIS Live Privacy Shield makes it easy to monitor activities while safeguarding privacy. 


AXIS P12 Modular Cameras Series includes both 1st generation products and Mk II products during a limited time period.
