Day and night video surveillance with exceptional image detail

Product Profile

AXIS 223M Network Camera is a high performance camera, designed for demanding security installations.  It delivers crisp and clear images with exceptional detail, thanks to its top quality 2.0 Megapixel progressive scan CCD sensor, Megapixel varifocal lens and advanced image processing. This camera delivers more than 4 times better resolution compared to a high-resolution analogue camera.  AXIS 223M features true day/night functionality with its automatically removable infrared cut filter, which enables colour video in high and low light conditions as well as IR sensitive, black/white video at night.

Built-in support for Power over Ethernet (IEEE 802.3af) enables power to the camera to be delivered via the network, eliminating the need for a power outlet and reducing installation costs.  Steady power can be guaranteed with a central Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS). 

AXIS 223M offers the most comprehensive set of network security and management capabilities in the network video market.  Support for IEEE802.1X allows the camera to connect to a network secured with port-based control, and HTTPS encryption provides a secure channel between the camera and application and enables authentication of the video source.  Installation and supervision of Axis video products is efficiently handled with the powerful AXIS Camera Management and AXIS Installation Monitor tools.  AXIS 223M supports Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) in addition to version 4, as insurance against the growing shortage of IPv4 addresses.
