AXIS Camera Application Platform

Develop apps for Axis devices

AXIS Camera Application Platform 

ACAP opens the door to a broad market for security, safety, and operational-efficiency apps. ACAP, which is supported on most Axis devices is an open platform. It allows you to design apps that are open and scalable while minimizing storage and bandwidth requirements.

Enjoy excellent opportunities

With ACAP, you can integrate (and develop) apps and plug-ins for a wide range of purposes. Security apps, business-optimization apps, traffic-control apps, time-lapse apps, and streaming apps are just a few examples. It’s possible to run custom apps on most of our broad portfolio of high-quality devices. ACAP is a well-established, proven platform that you can depend on to help you deliver great results.

Design great systems

When you use ACAP, you also have access to a long list of tested, well-documented application program interfaces (APIs). These APIs are optimized for Axis devices and let you take full advantage of Axis hardware and software. Together with software development kits (SDKs) based on open-source components, they facilitate interoperability, scalability, and easy migration of your apps to execute on Axis devices. In addition, your apps will be able to run and process video directly on Axis devices, which eliminates the need for separate servers for processing and reduces storage, bandwidth, costs, and system complexity.
