Are you looking for a discreet and robust network outdoor camera that delivers superior performance even in complex light conditions and in extreme temperatures? Weatherproof AXIS Q3517-LVE Network Camera can withstand the harshest weather conditions and the most powerful impacts and still capture unparalleled video. Because it’s loaded with advanced functionality that supports all your surveillance needs.
Superior Images Packed With Details
Simply put, AXIS Q3517-LVE delivers the best video quality possible. It offers 5-megapixel resolution at full frame rate (up to 30 fps) with Forensic WDR. That means it delivers excellent detail – even of moving objects and people – as well as of scenes with both extremely bright and extremely dark areas. Thanks to Lightfinder, you also get sharp, color images in low light. OptimizedIR ensures excellent low-noise video even in complete darkness. Axis Zipstream technology preserves important details in full image quality, while reducing storage and bandwidth by 50% or more.
Ready For The Rough Stuff – Every Time
AXIS Q3517-LVE is designed to be reliable under rough conditions and in harsh climates. It can withstand extreme temperatures ranging from -50°C to 60°C (-58°F to 140°F). It comes with a weathershield that keeps the rain off. Its IP66-, IP67-, and NEMA 4X-rated casing protects it against water, corrosion and dust. Electronic image stabilization keeps the picture steady when the camera is exposed to vibrations. The casing is also vandal resistant with IK10+ rating. And what’s more, even if there is a power outage, redundant DC power and Power over Ethernet helps ensure a reliable power supply to safeguard all your mission critical surveillance.  
Crammed With Extra Features
It comes pre-installed with AXIS Guard Suite analytics for proactive surveillance and saved resources. The two configurable input/output ports can be connected to various sensors like smoke or glass break detection or to devices that control light, doors, etc. You can also use dynamic overlays to add extra information to your video such as alarm information or external data, for example a weather update or airplane status.
Installation That’s as Easy as 1, 2, 3
AXIS Q3517-LVE makes installation and maintenance easy with several helpful tools such as leveling assistant, auto rotation, remote zoom and focus and straighten-image aid. AXIS Q3517-LVE also features flexible cable management and optional connections to any conduit.
