Author: Ethan Ace, Published on Apr 30, 2015

Now, they are releaseing their next-generation install tool, with a different approach, the T8415.

In this note, we look at the features, pricing and tradeoffs of using this tool vs Veracity and other installation tools.

Oh look! A portable device to charge my phone when it's dead.

It looks good. I'm just slightly regretting the fact that I have a Windows Phone. But enough apps who support ONVIF.

Well done Axis. I think this tool is just what we needed.

Can the T8415 be used with other manufacturer IP cameras and not just AXIS? That used to be a problem with the AXIS test monitors.

The unit includes a WiFi access point, meaning you can connect any smartphone, tablet, etc. At that point, you could access any manufacturer's camera via the web interface, that manufacturer's own app, etc.

However, our understanding is that the Axis app itself is for Axis cameras only.
