Axis 233D IP camera now equipped for auto-tracking
Today, Axis Communications announced that its 233D network dome camera will include an innovative auto-tracking feature. With auto-tracking, the camera can detect a moving person or vehicle, and then follow it as it passes through the camera's field of view. This feature is especially useful for unmanned surveillance applications where it's important to capture any presence of people of vehicle moving through a particular area. Think of school or office buildings after hours, hotel corridors, or parking garages, for instance. These are places where it's typical to have an unmanned surveillance setup with automated recording.
The big benefit of auto-tracking in the Axis 233D is that when the camera is triggered, it's more likely that it will actually record the activity you want to see. Even without someone physically controlling the camera, it can detect what's important and lock in and follow the action. This enables a single PTZ camera to cover a broad surveillance area that might normally require multiple cameras, cutting costs while also increasing the effectiveness of the surveillance solution.
