Axis Network Camera

Axis Network Camera
Summary The Axis 205 is small and compact and those features alone draw most of the attention. However, the lack of pan, tilt and zoom features as well as a merely average image quality might deter some buyers.
Update None
Pros • Compact size
Cons • Lacks pan, tilt and zoom
• Poor image quality

As we have seen in previous reviews, network based camera products continue to gain traction in many markets. While the applications can vary substantially from person to person, the ability to peek remotely at a net cam from anyplace, at any time, is what many users want.While most of the uses of network based camera products involve some sort of security purpose, there are many other uses for products like this, as well.

As long as you have a broadband Internet connection that is always on, with or without a static IP, it is possible to access these devices across the Internet.

However, since most users use a gateway or firewall of some type, this can present potential configuration issues that might make the installation of a network camera more of a challenge.

Axis 205 Network Camera: Small & Different
Security applications is one of the target markets where Axis sees the 205 fitting into their product line up.

Still, the ability to check in on your cat after she has kittens, keep an eye on your baby/baby sitter and to see what is happening in your house when you are not there is certainly appealing. The applications for this technology continue to grow, and based on the reaction we have received from past Network Camera reviews, we know that many readers seek smaller and more flexible models.

To this point, flexibility and price have been obstacles for many consumers, but now Axis has addressed these issues in its new model 205 Network Camera. The 205 Network Camera is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and checks in with a MSRP at only $199 US. What has Axis done to achieve this? Read on and see what the pluses and trade offs are in the Axis Model 205.
