Coming Soon: AXIS M1004-W

April 12, 2013 by Taylor Hamp

AXIS recently announced that they are currently in the works for releasing a new affordable wireless camera, and it’s looking better than anything before!

As a leader in the IP surveillance industry, AXIS is known for their top line cameras, which unfortunately also tend to correlate with high prices. In efforts to reach out and provide for small retail, offices, and home users, AXIS is set to release the AXIS M1004-W, a small and cost effective IP camera, complete with 720p HD resolution!

This new addition to the AXIS M10 Series is going to be an excellent step up allowing budget conscious buyers to reap the benefits of:

  • 1280×800 pixel resolution/progressive scan/HDTV color fidelity
  • 16:9 widescreen and AXIS Corridor Format
  • Input/output ports
  • Support for Wi-Fi IEEE802.11b/g/n

A particular perk to the M1004-W is its support for Wi-Fi Protected Set-Up (WPS), a feature commonly seen in TRENDnet IP Cameras and D-Link IP Cameras. WPS makes setting up a wireless connection easy and simple, removing the learning curve usually associated with wireless technology. WPS simplifies the configuration process by automatically pairing the WLAN with a push-button. Additionally, the One-Click Camera Connection feature makes this wireless camera completely functional with AXIS Video Hosting Solution so you can store all your video footage securely online. Otherwise it’s easy to back up edge recording to a Network Area Storage device.

You can look for the M1004-W this quarter at $199 MSRP.

      While it would be convenient to have 1 camera for multiple functions, I personally wouldn’t recommend it. Some people do use their IP surveillance cameras for video conferencing, however they have to find software that will be compatible to their needs, they tend to move their camera around and worst of all: surveillance recording stops during the use of the camera for video chat. For business VoIP, I would suggest perhaps a video phone such as the Grandstream GXV3140 so you can have both your VoIP calls and video conferencing in one device (Grandstream’s IP Surveillance Cameras can be monitored on it too!). I myself use the monitor mounted Logitech C920 with 1080p Full HD resolution and a 20-step auto-focus lens which follows my face when I’m moving around my desk while video chatting with someone. I used Logitech’s included software for a while, but now that so many of the people I know are on Google Chat I just video conference with them and I haven’t had a single problem with it!

      Hope this is of some help!
