Axis Communications M3026-VE overview

  • 1Description

The Axis Communications M3026-VE Outdoor Vandal-Resistant Network Dome Camera comes equipped with a 1/3.6" progressive scan RGB CMOS image sensor and a 2.0mm 106°-angle lens that is suitable for capturing full HD 1080p images of wide areas in environments such as hotels, gas stations, boutiques, restaurants, offices, and schools.

Designed for day and night surveillance, it records color images in a minimum illumination of 0.3 lux, and switches to the B&W mode when illumination goes below this level. In low-light conditions, the IR cut filter automatically retracts, allowing the camera to use invisible near-IR light from available sources to capture clear images in the dark.

Captured videos are transmitted over the network via H.264 and MJPEG streams, which can be individually optimized depending on quality needs and bandwidth constraints.

Intelligent video capabilities include video motion and audio detection and an active tampering alarm. The camera supports an open API (Application Programming Interface) for software integration, including the ONVIF specification for interoperability between network video products.

Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) enables this camera to receive power, audio/video, and PTZ commands via a PoE midspan (not included), making it easier to install the camera almost anywhere and not only near a power supply. This also eliminates the need for power cables and minimizes installation costs. The IP66-, NEMA 4X-, and IK10-rated housing of this outdoor network camera protects it from dust and rain without the need for an additional enclosure.

    Axis Communications M3026-VE reviews

    M3026-VE Outdoor Vandal-Resistant Network Dome Camera is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rich feature set, No monthly fee Installed 2 M3026-VE cameras on a vacation home. Cameras are easily discovered using Bonjour in the Safari web browser. Cameras support Dynamic DNS and NAT traversal so it is easy to access them from the Internet. It is fairly simple to install the cameras and access a live Motion JPEG stream from the Internet. The live Motion JPEG stream can be viewed from a PC, Macintosh, iPhone or iPad. The video is smooth on a WiFi network, but quite jerky on a cellular network. H.264 live streams work with PC or Mac on local network. H.264 uses much less bandwidth than Motion JPEG, but there is a couple seconds delay in the live video feed. The H.264 streams didn't work with iPad or iPhone. Couldn't figure out how to access the H.264 live stream via the Internet. Not clear if this is a problem with the camera or the router. It is not easy to configure a router to support h.264 RTSP streaming via the Internet. Camera doesn't support the HTTP live streaming protocol used by iPhones and iPads. My next project will be converting the h.264 RTSP video streams from the cameras to the HTTP live streaming protocol used by the iPhone and iPad. Cameras have built in video motion detection and can record to an internal 64 GB micro SD card (not included). Should be sufficient to record one month of video activity. You can easily access recorded video with no monthly fee.
