For more reliable identification

AXIS P8524 Network Camera is a pinhole HDTV 720p camera in an indoor height strip housing for eye-level video surveillance. Designed to be placed near exits of buildings, the camera is positioned to look straight at a person’s face for more reliable identification, even when the person is wearing a hood or baseball cap. AXIS P8524 is ideal for retail, hotel and banking environments where height strips are often used to enable eyewitnesses to gauge the height of a fleeing person.

Sensor and main units

AXIS P8524 comes in two separate units. The first is a sensor unit, made up of the lens and image sensor, with an 8-m (26-ft) cable that is mounted in a height strip housing. The second is a main unit that houses the connections for the sensor unit, network, power, input/output to external devices for enhanced alarm management, and microSD card slot for local storage of recordings. The height strip housing is designed to be installed at exits, while the main unit can be placed elsewhere and away from public view.

Eye-level views

The height strip housing comes in black or silver with a metric or imperial height indicator. The sensor unit is mounted at a height of 170 cm in the metric model and 5.5 ft in the imperial version as measured from the ground up. AXIS P8524 offers a 57° horizontal field of view. The sensor unit can be adjusted ±30° to set the desired viewing direction.
