1080i HDTV quality images for detailed image clarity
Intelligent video capabilities, such as advanced motion detection, audio detection and detection of camera tampering
High performance in extreme weather conditions
Easy installation and discreet design for indoor surveillance
Smooth integration with existing building management system

It requires a security monitoring system that is reliable, flexible and intelligent, which the BAE Systems solution with Axis Communications IP Network Cameras provides.
