Caméras IP Axis M1031-W Et M1011-W

Aesthetics, finish and durability

Small cameras from Axis embrace a simple design and boilerplate. On the other hand, their small size allows them to pass relatively unnoticed. Both models are very light, but the plastics implemented appear to be robust.The excellent workmanship will not come to contradict the first impressions. Axis confirms its reputation by providing quality cameras.

Design support

The connection support / camera is provided by a metal ball that has many degrees of freedom. For horizontal or vertical mountings, it is possible to use a breakthrough ring that is fastened under the foot of the camera (see middle photo above). In addition, Axis provided equal a small vise that secures the camera on the corner of a cabinet (for example) to avoid having to make a hole.

Inputs and outputs

Whether with the model M1031-W and M1011-W, connectors available is exactly the same. On either of these cameras, Axis provides an RJ45 wired network jack, a power supply and a reset button. Note also that in both cases, cameras are Wi-Fi enabled, but the antenna is integrated in the shell.

Knowing the orientation of the semi-professional range of Axis products were expected to have inputs / outputs for connecting these cameras to a wired alarm system. This feature has not been provided with the M1031-W and M1011-W models.

About the installation phase

The austerity of the installer remember that we are dealing with a brand that targets more professional or semi-professional world and the general public. Whatever, the main function is assumed perfectly: after the executable, the program instantly detects the camera. The window “about” indicates that the program is based on the code of Bonjour (Apple’s network protocol). It is however not essential to install Bonjour for the detection work.

Axis IP utilities displays the IP address, allows the change, or proposes to open the Administration web interface.In short, networking should not pose any problems to expect. In passing, we also appreciate that the installation program has been fully translated into French.

When double-click on the camera that is to be set, it falls directly on a Web page that offers to enter an administrator password. After these formalities, it is possible to access the web configuration interface.

Also of note on its Web site, Axis offers free significantly more cameras resulted manager. This second program is named “Axis Camera Management”. The tool offers roughly the same functionality as the basic application, but the full integrating additional options. For example, this time it is possible to detect a camera to flash firmware, reboot a remote camera or restore its factory settings. It can also configure advanced settings down to the finest details. The tool is clearly aimed at business customers.

About the Web interface

A simple interface, but not simplistic

Even with the latest firmware (5.00.2 at the time of writing), offers no option to switch the menus in French.Despite this lack regrettable, we must still recognize that the Web interface is very well organized: there instantly found what we search a few clicks. Yet we must remember that this is a model that teases the professional ranges: When venturing into some hidden menus, one realizes that some powerful options were provided.

Powerful gadgets bonus

For example, it is possible to add buttons or hyperlinks that point to a website on the administration interface.For their part, snagging the development will add their own pages of Directors to fully customize the interface of the camera! You thought you’d seen? Think again, the developers have even thought to give the opportunity to build from scratch an administration interface for mobile devices! Indeed, it is possible to add one or more adjusting levers on a page requiring no plug-in or Java ActivX to work … He had to think.

The Records release

Endless possibilities

Put an immediate end to the suspense over the whole of this comparison, the M1031-W Axis camera is the one that offers more trigger options. To be quite honest, the setting options are particularly strong to the point that all the cases appear to have been planned. For Axis, the camera will start recording when an “Event”. An “Event” take the form:

  • In an entry in the calendar;
  • In a heat sensing recorded by the infrared sensor;
  • In Noise emissions in the monitored room;
  • In a motion detection on the digital sensor;
  • On a timer recording for a certain date / time;

Knowing that you can combine these patterns to infinity, and you can involve special actions (sending of the snapshot through FTP, mail, triggering a sound, light façade, etc.), we understand the possibilities are particularly numerous.

The automated stock system developed by Axis is extremely powerful. By creating a series of planned actions which recalls the principle of macros, one can for example ask for a motion detection between 13:00 and 14:00 is videotaped on a server FTP while outside of these hours, a gust of images will be sent by email. You can create countless combinations using all modes of detection available.

Yet even if the process is extremely successful, ergonomics has been sufficiently well thought out so that the user easily finds its young in the myriad of possibilities. Again, Axis confirms its expertise in this field.
What about motion detection

Given the excellence of the event configuration menu, it was a shame to be deprived of a quality motion detection module. Good news, potential customers will have nothing to fear from this part. Better still, we can simply say that the detection module that Axis has integrated its M1031-W and M1011-W has no equal in this comparison.While the competition often merely provide a simple sensitivity adjustment, Axis thought allowing to set the size of objects to be detected (number of square pixels).

The manufacturer does not stop there way since it is possible to define five zones of different detections (inclusive or exclusive) we may appoint to his liking. To check the settings, a graphical real-time activity (see photo above) indicates detections (red) and the lack of detection (blue). The set of tools available allows extremely precise adjustments.

The features and differences between the M1031-W and M1011-W models

First, you must know that the Axis M1031-W (not his sister) differs from all the models present in this article due to the presence of an infrared motion detection module. This is coupled with a powerful LED lighting capable of putting a subject highlighted in a completely dark environment. This technology replaces rather well the lack of night vision lens.

Moreover, unlike the Axis M1011-W that does not have the M1031-W is equipped with a microphone and a speaker. The micro obviously gives the possibility of remote listening. For its part, the speaker is capable of transmitting digitized sounds are built into the camera (lens closing noise, barking, etc.) when motion is detected.

Apart from these two features that are specific to high-end model, the two cameras, one notices above all the excellent motion detection module and the power of automated event handler. Moreover, in one or other of the cases, the experts will appreciate the advanced options for customizing the camera, or configure an interface for mobile devices.

What about the software that accompanies the camera

On the installation CD, Axis provides a camera management software (only for Windows environments). In the manner of the good-natured of the other models in this roundup, Axis Camera Station One can manage his camera from his computer to enjoy a programmed recording function, or automatically (based on motion detection). However, unlike some competing tools, the free version (called “One”) is limited to a single camera.To move up a gear, it will be imperative purchase particularly costly license.

The pro or semi-pro cameras Axis is palpable when one considers that the proposed interface options accomplished. He also learns when the price of the full implementation camera management. For unbridled version capable of managing four cameras, it will cost the sum of 599 euros excluding tax. Beyond four cameras, it will acquire additional cameras mono licenses or opt directly for a license 10 cameras.

Certainly, the price does not send itself to all budgets, but the features are indeed the appointment. Better yet, the tool is available in two versions (client and server) used to centralize the management of multiple cameras clusters from a single machine. Again, the professional nature of the thing is required since such functionality should concern only few individuals.

Examples of photos taken with this camera

The resolution of Axis cameras is 640 x 480, a definition similar to that of most models of this article. Although this feature is not great, the quality of shots remaining honest. In total darkness this time, the M1031-W version is supported by a small integrated LED projector that is automatically activated when a movement is detected by the infrared sensor. In these shooting conditions, one finds that there is sufficient lighting, but the shots are rasterized. It will not count either detect a person within more than three meters.

Conclusion

Axis is a manufacturer that is relatively unknown to the general public. This may explain a sometimes high price positioning, but also by the presence of advanced options that have been specially designed for professionals.The deal could change since seen that with the models M1031-W and M1011-W, Axis has made an effort to align its prices with those of competitors. While the base model (M1011-W) does not support the audio portion while for the same price, it will be easy to find a model that has one. However, if one takes into consideration the quality of the lens, excellent motion detection module or even the power of the event handler, the balance will not hurt to look for cameras Axis.

Meanwhile, the M1031-W model is not only to bring the management of sound. Although the sensitivity of the objective of the camera is not able to capture a picture at night, the presence of an infrared motion sensor coupled to a relatively efficient LED mini projector lets you use the camera in an environment night. Caution, however, we must remember that infrared detection only works with hot body movements (human, animal, motor vehicle, etc.).

Ultimately, the Axis cameras, we particularly note the excellent hardware and software finish. The devices are as robust as discrete and administration interface is both stable and powerful. In the end we only regret the omnipresence of English in the various configuration menus and the inability to disable the light source of day or when room is lit (on the M1031-W model). If those skinny gray areas do not bother you too much, go there without fear.
