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 Q3518-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 Video Packed With Details

Simply put, AXIS Q3518-LVE delivers the best video quality possible. It offers 4K resolution at full frame rate (up to 30 fps) with Forensic WDR. That means it delivers excellent detail – even when there are moving objects in scenes with both extremely bright and dark areas. Thanks to Lightfinder, you also get sharpness and color in low light. OptimizedIR ensures excellent low-noise video even in complete darkness. Axis Zipstream preserves important details in full image quality, while reducing storage and bandwidth by an average of 50% or more.

Ready For The Rough Stuff – Every Time

AXIS Q3518-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 protects against sun, rain and snow, and its IP66-, IP67-, and NEMA 4X-rated casing also protects 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

The installation and maintenance is made easy with several helpful tools such as leveling assistant, auto rotation, remote zoom and focus. AXIS Q3518-LVE also features flexible cable management and easy conduit connection.
