AXIS 211 Network Camera Driver
There are plenty of network cameras to choose from, so what makes a fixed position, wired camera worth a premium price? Humphrey Cheung. AXIS and AXIS Network Cameras offer a cost-effective, IP-based solution for security surveillance and remote monitoring, which make them an ideal. Axis and AxisA Network IP camera is designed for indoor or outdoor operation and can deliver JPEG or MPEG-4 video streams simultaneously.

The MPEG-4 compression mode is ideal for applications where available bandwidth is restricted and higher frame rates are required.
With a built-in Web server, the AXIS enables remote monitoring over a local area network or the Internet using a standard Web browser. With built-in support for Power over Ethernet, the AXIS is able to receive power through a network cable, which reduces installation cost and enables users to increase their security by consolidating the power source to AXIS 211 Network Camera central location.
With Power over Ethernet, an Axis network camera can be set up in a AXIS 211 Network Camera that enables it to continue to function even when there is a power failure. See Using Power over Ethernet. Backed by the industry's largest base of application software for video and alarm management, the AXIS is an ideal choice for securing offices, shops and other facilities.
AXIS Network Camera
Backed by the industry's largest base AXIS 211 Network Camera software applications for video and alarm management, the AXIS is ideal for security surveillance and remote monitoring applications. I should mention that one of the most difficult things about designing a CCTV system is lens selection. The Axis comes with a varifocus lens that will suffice for most people, but is not optimal for all applications.
In order to properaly design and install a CCTV system, you need to be aware of items related to focusing on the area you are trying to monitor, including things such as depth of field. Remember you need to be able to identify people on your system as well as tell that there is someone there. For every camera and lens setup there will be a "sweet spot" where the focus is absolutely correct to monitor that area.
This "sweet spot" is the area you should focus the camera on. For instance, if you are monitoring a specific rack in your server room, make sure you camera is focused to be able to identify the person in front AXIS 211 Network Camera that rack, rather than the person coming in the AXIS 211 Network Camera room door 30 feet behind the rack.
One very nice feature in this release of Axis code is the ability to send emails via authenticated SMTP servers. Something that is missing is the ability to send syslog events from the camera.
AXIS 211 Network Camera With the ongoing integration of security devices into networks, being able to notify network management systems of events via syslog or SNMP strikes me as an important feature to implement. We put the Axis camera in place at several locations for testing. The first location was on top of a Chatsworth rack in a server room, looking toward one of the entry doors and covering a single row of racks.
The camera was setup to record motion via FTP for any activity around the entry door, and also activity around AXIS 211 Network Camera KVM of the rack row that is visible.

On motion dection, the camera would FTP 2 seconds of prior footage, then continue to upload images during any motion in the trigger areas, then record an additional 2 seconds of footage. This was a fairly simple configuration, but it did involve AXIS 211 Network Camera motion trigger areas and seperate events for AXIS 211 Network Camera trigger area. The second area that we setup a camera was outside the door of the IT department at the same location.
This camera was setup to record activity at the door whenever something entered the motion field drawn around the door handle. It was also setup to record pre and post frames to an FTP server, and to continue to record while there was motion in the field. It was however limited to non-business hour recording. This was a simpler configuration, with only one motion AXIS 211 Network Camera, but three different recording events: In order to monitor the systems, we did a couple AXIS 211 Network Camera different things.
First was to allow anonymous access to the main live viewing page of the cameras. This will allow anyone ot access the live view of the cameras at any time.

The downside to this is that someone can access the camera from different browsers up to the limit of simultaneous users that you have set in the control panel, thus killing your ability to monitor them from here. We then used the code generator in the Axis web interface to generate scripts for each camera that will allow the live view to be seen on a different AXIS 211 Network Camera server, and created a montage page from one of our monitoring servers.
This gave us a view of both cameras on a small web page that anyone can leave up on their desktop. This also has a downside. System CPU usage goes up significantly processing the motion jpeg inputs into a constant AXIS 211 Network Camera of images.
Not a big deal on a powerful system, but you do need to be aware that you are using up CPU cycles while watching the live feeds. Keep that in mind if you are building a home AXIS 211 Network Camera security system here. The cameras do operate with 2 options for video viewing, mjpeg which we mostly used and mpeg4 streaming. The mpeg4 options can use multicast. As for how the cameras did in production, they both operated very well.
