This is especially helpful for businesses with continual traffic coming through entrance and exit points.
Lightfinder Technology: Lightfinder Technology has become one of Axis’ most buzz-worthy features is included on some of the brand’s most recent IP camera models. Created for low-light environments, Axis’ Lightfinder Technology combines a CMOS sensor with outstanding light sensitivity. The end-result is higher quality images in the darkest of environments.
