Video-based solution provides perimeter surveillance and protection.

Axis Communications introduces Axis Perimeter Defender, a video analytics application for intrusion detection in the enterprise market. Combined with Axis’ thermal cameras and optical pan, tilt, zoom (PTZ) cameras, network horn speakers and third party video management software, the application forms a comprehensive, video-based solution for perimeter surveillance and protection, designed to reinforce physical access control in large-scale installations, according to the company.

Axis Perimeter Defender uses edge-based video analytics for accuracy, efficiency and scalability. The application supports multiple detection scenarios including several types of intrusion detection and loitering. It specifically meets the needs of high-security perimeter protection scenarios such as power plants, chemical plants and demanding installations where there is a need to reinforce the physical access control system with reliable intrusion detection.

The application comes with intuitive management and setup tools in one single management interface. A dedicated design tool reportedly simplifies the initial system layout and the installation. The central management interface allows operators to configure and manage all analytics-enabled cameras in the network through batch operations. A graphical representation of detection distances ensures that any potential blind spots are eliminated and the entire perimeter is protected, according to the company.

Axis Perimeter Defender is certified for sterile zone monitoring applications by i-LIDS, the UK government's benchmark for Video Analytics (VA) systems developed in partnership with the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure.
