Support for AXIS Camera Application Platform enables other intelligent video functionalities to be downloaded to the camera. The camera also supports shock detection, which enables it to send an alarm when it has been hit. Other features in AXIS P5635-E include two-way audio, four configurable inputs/outputs for connection to external devices, Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+), 24 V AC/DC and an SD card slot for local storage of recordings.
