When it comes to tackling the complex PTZ operations in a commercial security environment, the Axis Communications AXIS 215 is a proven champion. It counts among its advanced PTZ capabilities an auto flip function, an audio detection alarm feature and high speed pan and tilt operation. This compact camera also offers a certain measure of vandal resistance as all moving parts are contained inside its durable enclosure. As such, it is the camera of choice for securing malls, banks, casinos and similar indoor environments needing to encompass a large area as well as zoom in for detailed inspection when necessary.

Audio Detection Alarm
A built-in audio detection function will trigger the camera to activate an alarm when sound levels reach a certain intensity. Those familiar with CCTV cameras will know that this is a rare feature indeed. It can be used to provide a heightened degree of security in areas where loud noises are not part of the norm. An optional external microphone is required to access this feature as this camera doesn't have one built-in.
Full Circular Surveillance (Auto Flip)
Another feature unique to this camera is auto flip. Most other cameras are prevented from doing a complete circle due to a mechanical stop. To overcome this limitation, this camera will auto flip the camera head 180° and continue to pan beyond its zero point. This will allow an operator to follow a person or object moving in a full circle around the camera.

        Comments about Axis Communications AXIS 215 PTZ Network Camera:

        This camera is used at home. I find that the image quality and features are very good but the firmware is a bit unstable and is, on occasion, unresponsive. It can be cleared by a camera restart.
