Law enforcement agencies have extensively deployed body-worn cameras to help better capture interactions with citizens and document emergencies.
But the market for the technology continues to grow outside of law enforcement. And at GSX 2023, Axis is highlighting an expanded line up of cameras for other sectors including retail, healthcare, and more.
Instead of the large and rugged form factor of most body-worn cameras in law enforcement, the new AXIS W110 Body Worn Camera weighs just under 3 ounces and is 3 inches tall and 2 inches wide. That makes it easier for employees in other sectors to use the technology.
There are multiple mounting options for the W110. It also integrates with both AXIS Camera Station and third-party VMSs and offers end-to-end encryption.
During a media tour Tuesday, Axis also highlighted the AXIS W400 Body Worn Activation Kit. It helps ensure that all body cameras are activated, no matter the situation. Using Bluetooth beacons, it will automatically activate all cameras in the same system after a certain event—for example, when a lighter or siren is activated or a panic button is pressed.
Both of the new products will be available in Q4 of 2023.
And that was far from all at the Axis booth this year. The AXIS D2210-VE Security Radar is the next-generation radar device that can detect, classify, and track human and vehicles. It doesn’t need any visibility.
Using the radar, it can detect a human at up to 200 feet and vehicles at up to 295 feet.
It will be available at the end of the month.
The AXIS I8116-E Network Video Intercom is now available. Designed for tight spaces, it sports a 5MP sensor. You can also easily add lock control and video surveillance with a PoE cable.
