CHELMSFORD, Mass. — Axis Communications announces a new palm-sized p/t/z camera with wireless I/O connectivity for communication with other devices using Z-Wave Plus.

The Axis M5065 network camera features 5x optical zoom, autofocus and built-in analytics such as video motion detection, removed object detection and audio volume and scream detection.

Wireless I/O connectivity enables flexible system deployment that provide high-quality indoor security surveillance, allowing business owners to keep control of their premises and assets, according to the company.

With the camera’s wireless I/O connectivity, it is possible to use an on/off command to control up to six wirelessly connected devices supporting Z-Wave Plus.
