AXIS Guard Suite now free

1 July 2020 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

Axis Communications has made its existing AXIS Guard Suite analytics free for all compatible Axis cameras. This means that AXIS Guard Suite analytics – which have been pre-installed in Axis Q-line cameras and are available at no extra cost – are now also downloadable for free for compatible Axis FA-, M- and P-line cameras with firmware 7.x or higher. Guard Suite analytics includes AXIS Fence Guard, AXIS Motion Guard and AXIS Loitering Guard.

The Guard Suite encompasses separate licence-free analytics that provide motion, intrusion and loitering detection for your network video products. They detect threats and alert security staff so guards can take action when it’s really needed. The analytics are ideal for non-critical, low-traffic areas such as during after-hours at schools and offices, retail and industrial sites.

AXIS Guard Suite applications are also easy to set up and configure. They support multiple profiles, so you can have different trigger settings for different areas or times of day. And support for event management means you can decide how you want the system to respond to security events – for example by sending email notifications, streaming video to a video management system, recording to edge storage, or activating a loudspeaker.

On a number of Axis video products, AXIS Guard Suite analytics support alarm overlays that help you easily determine the object that is triggering the alarms. Taking the form of red bounding boxes around alarm-triggering objects, the overlays can be used on one selected video resolution and are permanently burnt into any live or recorded video using that resolution.
