@John ******: Axis does have generic shapes at the top of its Visio templates, which you can use for any brand of camera. In my functional specifications I design by what the scene contains and what the security needs are, then find the most appropriate equipment. For highly demanding applications this often turns out to be Axis cameras, but not always.
