Network audio is an essential tool for security solutions, and they offer additional capabilities like public address and background music. This makes network audio a worthwhile investment for your organisation because you can get a cost-effective all-in-one audio solution for various applications.
Network audio systems are intelligent devices, just like IP video cameras, and offer many of the same types of benefits. They can be used both with pre-recorded messages triggered by analytics in a camera or with live messaging to a monitored scene.
In the security market
You can quickly stop unwanted activity with a network audio system that integrates with a video-based security installation. One example is perimeter protection. If a potential intruder climbs a fence, the camera automatically alerts a security guard to give a warning to the intruder using the audio system. Usually, this type of warning is enough and prevents the need for additional security measures.
This solution meets two security requirements by deterring and delaying any potential intruders, a valuable asset in your security strategy. It not only establishes a safer environment, there are lower costs associated with deterring incidents and theft such as reducing damages and loss of goods, cutting back on the administration associated with incidents, lowering insurance premiums and legal costs.
Rhino sanctuary protection
Rhino poaching is a serious problem across Africa, the Rhino Pride Foundation Sanctuary in South Africa has installed a network of thermal cameras to protect their residents. This form of perimeter protection is very effective because it uses thermal imaging to detect people, objects and incidents. This solution operates 24-hours per day, seven days a week, and delivers protection in pitch dark areas or sunny parking lots.
It allows the security team to be alerted to suspicious activity before the intrusion even occurs. The sanctuary takes advantage of Axis audio solutions to remotely address people and deter unwanted activity through network horn speakers that are integrated with cameras.
In an environment where endangered animals’ lives are at risk, it is incredibly valuable to be able to deter the crime before it occurs, data shows that audio, both live and recorded, can have a positive impact on deterring criminals.
Public address solutions
With Axis audio solutions, you can broadcast to single or multiple areas. This is ideal for informative messages and updates in settings such as schools, retail stores, hotels and public buildings. Network audio systems allow you to make alive or scheduled announcement in specific areas, or it can be used to issue a live or triggered announcement during an emergency.
Within a school environment, smart zoning allows administrators to target their announcements to specific areas, like the library. You can schedule a notice that the library will close at a certain time or to signify the start and finish of the school day.
You can narrow down the announcements even further to relay a message to an individual teacher or student in a specific classroom or on the playground. Audio solutions also offer more freedom to administrators because they can make audio announcements via a suitably enabled phone or mobile device, not only from the front office.
A network audio system also allows you to play music how and where you want to. This is ideal for retail stores and hotels in creating the perfect background music. Axis audio solutions offer pre-set volume and music choices as well as both central and remote control for easy management. You can also choose to combine background music with scheduled and live announcements for the best possible customer experience.
Axis network audio solutions offer a range of applications and capabilities that are scalable, flexible and easy to integrate with your existing system. Their all in one solution allows the freedom to use the features that matter most for your organisation, with the benefit of other capabilities at your disposal as and when you need them.
