Sound in surveillance

First things first

Many Axis cameras have a built-in microphone, so getting started might simply be a matter of enabling audio recording in the camera, or in your video management software.

It is important to know that recording audio in public areas is often more regulated than video surveillance. Laws vary by region and by country, so be sure to know exactly what is permitted before adding audio to your surveillance system.

If your environment prohibits the use of audio recording, the built-in microphone in some Axis cameras can be disabled by inserting an unconnected plug into the auxiliary microphone jack.
