New Full HD Height Strip Camera Reviewed

Author: John Honovich, Published on Oct 16, 2013

Getting clear facial shots is often one of the most critical tasks in surveillance. Doing so is hard because it demands the camera be mounted low, increasing the risk of vandalism or overtness.

Height strip cameras are one way to achieve this, though only Axis has offered a megapixel one - a very expensive 1MP model - the P85. Now, a rival manufacturer is offering a 2MP version at a much lower cost. In this note, we examine the offerings and competitive options.
