Project design can be tricky – many moving parts and changing client demands means it can feel as though the project design is more difficult than the implementation. To help easily create the right system to fit the exact operational requirements and needs of a client, while making projects faster to create, revise, and implement Axis created AXIS Site Designer.

With AXIS Site Designer, you can design surveillance and access control systems, from design draft, project estimates and installation workflow to project completion. It offers seamless integration with our video management software, AXIS Camera Station, including AXIS Camera Station Secure Entry, our all-in-one video and access control management system. AXIS Site Designer has been developed to suit a wide range of installations including retail stores, hotels, schools, and manufacturing industries. Storage and bandwidth estimates also make it easy to select and include alternative VMS (Video Management System) products from our partners.

Turning the end-users needs into a complete solution

Designed to improve the whole design and implementation experience, AXIS Site Designer allows you to manage all planning from one tool – whether it’s a small single site installation or a multi-location system rollout.

The intuitive interface helps you to easily identify and match devices and accessories to the end-user’s requirements.  AXIS Site Designer can be used on mobile tablets and laptops to enable direct collaboration with the customer. The specific requirements can then be inputted to find the best solution and meet the customer’s needs. By adding notes to the chosen components and sharing these directly with installers, you can avoid any issues during setup. You also have the option of exporting all configurations to AXIS Camera Station to eliminate any installation mistakes.

Once the solution has been designed, you can create quotes for your client, either directly within AXIS Site Designer or, using the handy export feature, through other quoting software. If you need to make any tweaks, the revisions can be made in AXIS Site Designer so the quote associated with the project can be dynamically updated in line with the revised design. All this saves considerable time and makes accommodating change requests a breeze.

Streamlined design and installation to meet security challenges

AXIS Site Designer offers maximum efficiency when finding the right products, estimating bandwidth and storage, and working with floor plans. The maps feature saves time and costs, making it easier to plan and view camera placement and coverage, as well as design your access control system. For instance, after importing a floorplan or map of the target site into the tool, it’s simple to drag and drop door controllers, readers, and other components into the design as you work out what is required for effective access control.  

One of the latest features in AXIS Site Designer is that you can use layers in your floorplan design. This enables you to turn off elements within maps such as speaker coverage. On top of this, you can also associate colors to your devices which can help you filter functionality or areas. This simplifies the display of your project when designing it.  (see image)

Another new feature is the ability to export multiple projects, which is ideal when you want to share several projects, take a backup, or archive projects.
