Maintaining a livable urban environment
Supporting sustainable cities
Weather, pollution, water, and noise are growing dilemmas for cities and their residents. Axis constantly develops camera and IoT solutions that make it easier to monitor the data that’s most important to your city. These solutions can include alerts for when immediate assessment and action are required. They can also help you to combine real-time and historic environmental data with other smart city data, making it possible to investigate short- and long-term cause and effect relationships.
How can Axis help:
- Air quality monitoring – Monitor outdoor ambient pollution
Noise monitoring – Identify sound nuisance and noise pollution
Weather analytics - collect real-time weather data, like rain and snow
Waste management - Improve waste collection and identify illegal dumping
Water management - Monitor infrastructure to avoid leakage and control water quality
Street lights - Control illumination intensity to reduce energy consumption while maintaining public safety
Monitor and improve environmental quality
Axis provides innovative, scalable camera and IoT solutions that add an extra dimension to your environmental monitoring. Network cameras and sensors can provide data and visual analytics, letting you understand present conditions and take effective action. This data can also improve weather forecasting and allow you to measure water levels to provide flood warnings. With strategically placed Axis cameras you can also get significant insights into air quality, and monitor waste management and illegal dumping in your city.

Sound detection and noise pollution
Noise pollution is often cited as a factor in reduced quality of life, causing stress and affecting our health. Cities with an Axis surveillance network can easily enhance their noise management capacities by adding sound detection technology. Video surveillance together with sound detection can be a useful safety feature in a number of situations, but it can also measure and analyze noise levels over a sustained period, helping you to understand noise pollution levels and take action to improve the lives of residents.
By selecting sustainable materials and components from trusted suppliers, Axis ensures that our products, components, and solutions are environmentally friendly, and handled in a responsible and trustworthy way. For example, 80% of Axis cameras and encoders are PVC-free, and several series of cameras are entirely free of halogen. In recognition of our ongoing commitment to environmentally responsible development, we received the 2017 US Green Supply Chain Award for sustainability efforts across the company and in our supply chain.
