In 2004 Managed Solutions became a partner of Axis Communications to provide IP security camera solutions to our customers. As a security centric provider we realized the need to infuse the traditional physical security model with additional technological solutions. One of the best ways to add more physical security to a enterprise is through the use of security cameras. Security cameras allow you to record your facilities 24/7/365. The mere presence of security cameras is likely to have a dramatic affect on the security of your facility.
In the unlikely and unfortunate event that something should happen in spite of the presence of the cameras if properly configured you will have hard evidence of the event to turn over to the authorities. Security cameras can also reduce the work load and increase the efficiency of your organization. By being able to monitor an infinite number of locations management can have a better feel for what is taking place in their facility, regardless of how large or small it might be. Remote sites can also be monitored and limit the need for a physical presence. All of this is made possible while utilizing pre-existing TCP/IP networks. This limits the need for new cabling infrastructure to be installed. Regardless of why you need surveilance, Axis Communications is the leader in the IP surveillance arena. They are an innovator in the field of IP Surveillance hardware and software and a valuable partner for any organization.
A typical Axis Camera Network utilizes your existing network infrastructure. By offering indoor and outdoor cameras that support Power Over Ethernet (POE) or add on POE midspan products in addition to wired and wireless networking they give us maximum installation flexibility. Their cameras also range from very basic static cameras up to sophisticated Pan Tilt Zoom (PTZ) units. Axis is also renowned for the image quality their cameras produce, this is an important criteria when you evaluate IP Surveilance products. The heart of their system is the Camera Station software. This software provides you with monitoring, recording, playback and event management. Because the system is TCP/IP network based, remote reviewing and playback are also supported. The package is rounded out with stand alone recording products for situations where the end user wants the data stored off their traditional file servers.
