More for your money

AXIS M5525-E is a great deal. The affordably priced camera is packed with the kind of top-of-the-line features you'd normally expect in high end cameras. It's particularly suitable for stores; schools; building lobbies and other open areas; both indoors and out.

Don't miss a thing

HDTV 1080p resolution; 10x optical zoom; and continuous 360 degree pan that lets you easily follow moving objects. AXIS M5525-E provides both the zoomed-in detail and the broad overview you need to stay on top of what's happening on your premises. WDR - Forensic Capture ensures great detail when there are both bright and darker spots in a scene. The camera's outstanding light-sensitivity means high-quality video even when it is recording in near darkness.

Highly versatile

AXIS M5525-E is a versatile camera for indoor or outdoor use; compatible with all Axis PTZ mounts. It offers two-way audio and four digital I/O ports for integration with other equipment.  And there are three scene profiles to choose from:

  • Forensic profile for capturing details in challenging conditions
  • Indoor profile for optimized colors in indoor lighting conditions
  • Outdoor profile for enhanced image appearance for outdoor surveillance

For each profile; the camera automatically optimizes exposure time; white balance; aperture; sharpness; contrast and noise to suit the specific scenario. The result is great image quality and cost-effective installation.

Sharp images. Low bandwidth.

AXIS M5525-E features Axis Zipstream technology; which analyses the video stream in real time to identify areas of interest. These areas are compressed a bit less than other areas; preserving important details in full image quality; while reducing storage and bandwidth by up to 50%. The result is high-quality images and significant savings.
