Axis Communications' Axis 210 Network Camera

Good


• Easy to configure
• Bidirectional audio support
• Power over Ethernet support
• Low cost for indoor surveillance


Bad


• Manual focusing of lens
• Some functionality requires ActiveX


Axis 210A Network Camera, $549. Axis Communications, (800) 444-AXIS, (978) 614-2000. www.axis.com

The Axis 210A mounts on a ceiling or wall. The camera angle and lens allow for only manual adjustment, though the lack of support for remote or automatic focus is on par with similarly priced products. Built into the camera's software is a Web server, which makes Web administration and viewing possible.

The camera's Web app gives you a viewer screen and a configuration screen. The viewer screen supports the streaming video, audio controls, window size and external sensor controls.
