Axis Perimeter Protection in AST Homeland Security Awards (Video)

Given compliance regulations, government facilities often times struggle to implement a security system that can effectively address their needs and is able to provide the level of security needed to protect the perimeter against potential threats.

No matter what perimeter you wish to protect, you deserve a reliable security solution you can trust around the clock, and in any weather and light conditions.

A successful perimeter protection solution should be comprehensive and have multiple components to ensure proper perimeter security.


Your first layer of defense

Axis’ perimeter protection solution gives you an edge where security starts.

Now Axis enables its partners to deliver a scalable and flexible video analytics application for intrusion detection.

Using a combination of Axis thermal cameras and optical pan, tilt, zoom (PTZ) cameras, and Axis network horn speakers, AXIS Permeter Defender provides a comprehensive video-based solution for large-scale perimeter protection.

AXIS Perimeter Defender’s complete perimeter defense solution works with thermal and PTZ cameras, loudspeakers and third party video management software.

Together with Axis network cameras, horn speakers, and video management software, AXIS Perimeter Defender comprises a comprehensive video-based solution for effective perimeter protection.

And it’s i-LIDS certified as a primary detection system for monitoring sterile zones.

AXIS Perimeter Defender is ideal for reinforcing physical access control for high-security facilities such as chemical plants, power plants and prisons and for critical infrastructure.

AXIS Perimeter Defender is a great solution that can help monitor the borders, protect top secret government buildings, military bases, ports, etc.

AXIS Perimeter Defender also comes with intuitive management and design tools in a single management interface.

A dedicated design tool that simplifies the initial system layout and the installation and upgrade process.

The central management interface allows operators to configure and manage all analytics-enabled cameras in the network through efficient and time-saving batch operations.

In addition, a graphical representation of detection distances ensures that any potential blind spots are eliminated, and the entire perimeter is protected with the highest level of accuracy and consistency.

Detect, verify, act

AXIS Perimeter Defender provides accurate detection capabilities with support for multiple detection scenarios.

This includes several types of intrusion detection and loitering. AXIS Perimeter Defender enable detection of multiple events occurring simultaneously in different places.

It analyses detected events, dismisses non-threatening ones and notifies security staff of potentially critical situations.

Your staff can then choose to view detailed video footage to determine the precise nature of the threat – and act accordingly.

The result is accurate detection and minimal false alarms.


AXIS Perimeter Defender detects four different types of events:

  • Intrusion: When one or more people or vehicles enter a predetermined zone
  • Zone crossing: When a person or vehicle passes through two predetermined zones in a predetermined order and direction.
  • Loitering:  When a person or a vehicle remains in a predetermined zone for more than a certain number of seconds.
  • Conditional zone crossing: When a person or a vehicle enters a predetermined zone without starting in or passing through one or more predetermined zones.

AXIS Perimeter Defender can also detect multiple events occurring simultaneously in different places within the range of a single camera.

Security that grows with you

You can integrate AXIS Perimeter Defender into as many cameras as you want, here and now, and add more cameras as your needs grow.

As AXIS Perimeter Defender analyzes video-footage data on the cameras themselves, it doesn´t require a central server for processing.

Whether installed on one or on 50 cameras, there’s no need for system redesign or expensive hardware replacements each time a new camera is added to the network.

And once everything is in place, the entire system can be controlled from a single interface and location.

Installation that’s as easy as 1, 2, 3

Installing and setting up AXIS Perimeter Defender is fast, simple and cost-effective. You can deploy and configure it simultaneously on multiple cameras.

AXIS Perimeter Defender supports a range of alarm outputs and integrates with your video management systems, providing you with immediate feedback on potential security incidents.

And it has all the features needed for easy implementation, including intuitive system-design tools and automatic calibration.

Support and upgrades are included in the license.
