Axis Guardian - Cloud VMS And Alarm Monitoring - Released

By: Sean Patton, Published on Jun 19, 2018

Axis has struggled to deliver a cloud-based managed service video platform. Video service providers have utilized AVHS for over a decade, and have gained minimum traction as IPVM warned 7 years ago. Primarily because of its overly complex business model, where Axis provided the camera hardware and backend software, but not the hosting, storage or client interface.

Now, Axis has introduced an end to end cloud-based VMS called Axis Guardian, aiming to succeed where AVHS did not.

In this note, we review this new offering from Axis based on:

  • Solution Overview
  • Pricing
  • Central Monitoring / Video Verification Focus
  • Perimeter Defender / Guard Suite Recommendations
  • Networking Test Tools
  • Camera Support
  • Non-Camera Device Support
  • Outlook
