The Axis Q29 series of temperature alarm cameras have a resolution of 336x256 - far lower than the company's mainstream HD surveillance cameras - but have the handy ability to generate alarms when temperatures exceed thresholds.
Uses include intruder detection and remote monitoring of equipment and storage areas.
"Axis Q2901-E temperature alarm cameras can be used to monitor equipment's temperature on a 24/7 basis to eliminate risks of overheating," said director of product management Erik Frännlid.
The Q2901-E comes in versions for fixed mounting or for use in conjunction with pan/tilt motor heads where large areas are to be scanned.
Like other Axis cameras, the Q29 series works with the company's Camera Companion, Axis Camera Application Platform, and Video Hosting System, and are ONVIF-compatible for integration with other systems.
The Q2901-E cameras will cost $1793 when they go on sale this quarter.
