Superb performance, more reliable identification
AXIS P8535 Network Camera is a pinhole HDTV 1080p camera in an indoor height strip housing for eye-level video surveillance. The feature-rich, high-resolution camera supports Wide Dynamic Range – Forensic Capture, which enables details in both bright and dark areas of a scene to be visible.
Designed to be placed near exits of buildings, the camera is positioned to look straight at a person’s face for more reliable identification, even when the person is wearing a hood or baseball cap. AXIS P8535 is ideal for retail, hotel and banking environments where height strips are often used to enable eyewitnesses to gauge the height of a fleeing person.
Sensor and main units
AXIS P8535 comes in separate units that include AXIS F1025 Sensor Unit and AXIS F41 Main Unit. The sensor unit—made up of a pinhole lens and image sensor with a 12-m (39-ft.) cable—is for installation in a height strip housing.
The main unit houses the processor, network and other connections. It supports two-way audio, four configurable input/output ports to external devices for enhanced alarm management, RS232 for integration of external data to the video, two full-sized SD card slots for local storage of recordings, Power over Ethernet and the option of powering through 8-28 V DC. The height strip housing is designed to be installed at exits, while the main unit can be placed elsewhere and away from public view.
The height strip housing comes in black or silver with a metric or imperial height indicator. The sensor unit is mounted at a height of 170 cm in the metric model and 5.5 ft. in the imperial version as measured from the ground up. AXIS P8535 offers a wide 92° horizontal field of view. The sensor unit can be adjusted ±15° to set the desired viewing direction.
