Z-Wave is big in home automation but not in video surveillance.
Now, Axis is announcing their first camera with Z-Wave built in, the M5065, a "palm-sized" PTZ which may be integrated with four wireless devices to trigger events and control connected devices.
But is Z-Wave a good idea for IP cameras? Is Axis early or just making a mistake?
In this note, we look at the features of this new model, its potential applications, competitive options, and future outlook.
[[Note: We have tested this camera and its Z-Wave accessories. See our full test report.]]
