AXIS P12 Network Camera Series offers small-sized, high-performance cameras for exceptionally
discreet indoor and outdoor surveillance. These cameras are perfect for covert installations or where
a discreet and compact surveillance solution is required.
AXIS P12 Network Cameras is a series of uniquely
designed cameras for exceptionally discreet surveillance.
The series comprises three models; two pinhole models,
AXIS P1204 and AXIS P1214, which are ideal for indoor
installations, and AXIS P1214-E, which is an IP66-rated
model that can be installed both indoors and outdoors.
The cameras provide crystal-clear HDTV 720p image
quality at full frame rate. AXIS P12 cameras deliver
multiple, individually configurable video streams in
H.264 compression, which greatly optimizes bandwidth
and storage needs without compromising image quality.
The form factor and small size offer excessive flexibility.
The sensor unit and main unit are connected by an 8
meter (26ft.) cable, providing flexibility to place the
sensor unit in one place and the main unit elsewhere.
AXIS P12 cameras offer powerful event management
capabilities with intelligent video features such as
tampering alarm and motion detection, in addition to
AXIS Camera Application platform.
The cameras can be powered either over Ethernet, or by
external power supply. Furthermore, the cameras
include support for edge storage with the built-in
microSD/microSDHC memory card slot.

cameras enable easy integration into very limited spaces. AXIS P12
Series is ideal for discreet and covert surveillance in stores, architectural
buildings, hotels, offices, banks and ATMs.

The innovative design concept of AXIS P12 Series comprises a main
unit, and a separate sensor unit, enabling them to be mounted up to
8 meters (26ft.) apart. The separate sensor unit with a
lens and image sensor, offers great flexibility to blend
into a wide range of environments, at the same time
keeping the cameras protected from tampering.
AXIS P12 Series offers a wide range of mounting options for indoor
and outdoor installations. The cameras include various mounting
accessories enabling quick and easy installation. The
unique form factor and small size of the sensor
unit, enables flush mounting at places where a
concealed application is required.

supplied housing makes the camera suitable for discreet wall or ceiling
mount, allowing an overview without being intrusive. The camera is
designed for both indooor and outdoor applications and is ideal for door
entrances and ATMs.
