The P3215-VE 2MP Outdoor Dome Camera from AXIS Communications uses a 1/2.8" progressive-scan CMOS sensor for 1920 x 1080 resolution at 30 fps, and it features a 3.0-10.5mm varifocal lens for a 95° to 34° horizontal field of view. Additionally, the camera can be digitally panned, tilted, and rotated for conveniently adjusting your viewing angle without needing to physically access the camera. Wide dynamic range offers high-quality images in ambient lighting, and white balance, backlight compensation, brightness, sharpness, and contrast settings allow you to configure your camera based on different environments. The camera also comes with built-in analytics, such as motion detection, active tampering alarm, autotracking, and line crossing. When any of these events occur, the camera will send you an email notification or store video recordings of the event to your edge storage.
The camera compresses footage using H.264 and MJPEG formatting, maximizing your bandwidth and storage. Additionally, video can be streamed in multiple individual streams, and frame rates and bandwidth are controllable for further customizing your network. A microSD slot supports on-site recording, however, the camera can also record remotely to a dedicated NAS. The network is secured with a number of safety features, including password protection, IP address filtering, and HTTPs encryption. PoE technology allows you to transfer both data and power over the same Ethernet cable, minimizing the amount of cables needed during installation, and the camera is IP66-, NEMA 4X-, and IK10-rated for use outdoors and in high-risk areas. ONVIF-compliance enables compatibility with a wide range of surveillance devices so that you can connect the camera to an NVR or NAS.
