Axis Communications introduces compact fixed dome network camera for indoor video surveillance

Product Profile

The AXIS 216FD Fixed Dome Network Camera is a high-performance camera for professional indoor surveillance and remote monitoring.  It offers a discreet, compact and cost-efficient solution with effective protection against tampering.  AXIS 216FD allows for easy and flexible installation on a wall or ceiling and versatile adjustment by panning, tilting and rotating the varifocal lens to any camera angle.

AXIS 216FD provides two-way audio support, including the option of using a built-in microphone.  This enables remote users not only to view, but also to listen in on an area and communicate orders or requests to visitors or intruders.  Thanks to its high-quality progressive scan sensor and advanced image processing, this camera delivers crisp and clear images also in low-light conditions.  Supported by the industry’s largest base of video management software, the AXIS 216FD provides the perfect solution for securing shops and stores, schools, banks and other office buildings over the local area network or across the Internet.

The built-in support for Power over Ethernet (IEEE 802.3af) enables power to be delivered to the camera via the network, reducing installation costs by eliminating the need for power outlets.  In addition, the consolidation of power gives higher reliability if connected to a central Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS).  The AXIS 216FD also offers a comprehensive set of network security features such as multi-level password protection, IP address filtering and HTTPS encryption.

The features of the AXIS 216FD that provide the key benefits for the customer, are listed below:

  • Discreet and compact design, effectively protecting against tampering
