Axis M2014-E low cost outdoor camera
Compact, affordable, and suitable for interior or exterior installations, the Axis M2014-E high definition IP camera has two unique features that set it apart. First off at approximately $400 it is Axis’ lowest cost outdoor camera. The second unique feature is the 2 part design, a slim “lipstick” style camera head connected by a 26′ cable to a module that contains the processor, connectors and SD card slot. When using Axis Camera Companion software and an SD card for video storage this adds a layer of security, especially for outdoor applications. If the camera head is damaged or destroyed the video footage will still be safe within the module. The camera housing is small (approximately 3″
long by 1.3″ round) with a clean, modern look and the ball-joint bracket makes the camera easy to adjust in difficult to mount locations. In addition to the standard mount it comes with a clamp mount ideal for temporary installations. The camera has a fixed focal lens with an 80 degree horizontal field of view. The camera does not include day/night capability and is therefore only suitable for relatively well lit environments.
