Axis has released the latest in their Companion camera line, the outdoor Companion Dome Mini LE, a 1080p integrated IR model aiming to compete with low-cost offerings.
This is the outdoor counterpart to the ~$100 indoor Axis camera we tested.
We bought and tested the Companion Dome Mini LE against competitive models from Hanwha and Hikvision to see how it compares, examining:
- How good are low light details with IR on?
- How even is IR illumination?
- Does IR illumination meet its specified 15m range?
- Does the camera perform well in WDR scenes?
- How do bitrates compare to competitors?
- Does the camera integrate with third party VMS/NVRs?
