AXIS Camera Application Platform

Leverage the power of Axis open platform

The open application platform creates unique possibilities to meet specific end user needs, by enabling download of third-party applications to Axis network cameras and encoders.

What is ACAP?

AXIS Camera Application Platform (ACAP) is an open application platform that enables members of Axis Application Development Partner (ADP) Program to develop applications that can be downloaded and installed on Axis network cameras and video encoders.

ACAP makes it possible to develop applications for a wide range of applications:

  • Security applications that improve surveillance systems and facilitate investigation.
  • Business intelligence applications that improve business efficiency.
  • Camera feature plug-ins that add value beyond the Axis product's core functionality

What are the benefits?

New opportunities for efficient system design

By running your application at the edge, in the Axis product, you can improve system efficiency and scalability:

  • Reduced storage and network consumption – You can reduce both storage and network consumption dramatically.
  • Reduced system costs and complexity – You don’t need any separate server for processing the video, you can fully leverage on the processing power of the camera.
  • Design truly scalable deployments – less bandwidth traffic, less storage need, and less servers makes it easy to scale up the system with more cameras and more ACAP applications.
  • Simplified deployment and tuning of client projects - provide a unique customized solution by combining right cameras, right ACAP application(s) with easier integration into VMS's.
