Are you looking for a discreet and robust outdoor network camera that delivers outstanding video quality and a high level of defense to protect your system? AXIS Q3527-LVE Network Camera is loaded with advanced security functionality to increase your systems cyber defense and can withstand the harshest weather conditions while capturing unparalleled video.

Securing The Firmware

Just like any other internet-connected device, network cameras can be vulnerable to attack. AXIS Q3527-LVE includes enhanced security features to prevent unauthorized access. Signed firmware and secure boot guarantees that the firmware hasn’t been altered and ensures only authorized firmware is installed. Furthermore, if needed secure boot guarantees that the camera is completely clean from possible malware after a factory default.

Your Key to Protection

AXIS Q3527-LVE includes a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) that is FIPS 140-2 level 2 certified. It ensures secure storage of all cryptographic keys and certificates so that they remain safe even in the event of a security breach.

Superior Images Packed With Details

AXIS Q3527-LVE is based on AXIS Q3517-LVE which ensures 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. Furthermore, Zipstream preserves important details in full image quality, while reducing storage and bandwidth by 50% or more.

Ready For The Rough Stuff – Every Time

AXIS Q3527-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.


5 MP dome with enhanced security features

AXIS Q3527-LVE Network Camera is a vandal-resistant fixed dome for harsh environments with enhanced security features. Signed firmware and secure boot ensure the integrity and authenticity of the camera’s firmware, while a TPM
provides secure storage of its certificates and cryptographic keys. Based on AXIS Q3517-LVE, the top-quality image
sensor and advanced technologies such as Lightfinder and Forensic WDR ensures that AXIS Q3527-LVE delivers outstanding video quality in any light condition, even when the camera is subject to vibrations. AXIS Q3527-LVE also
offers redundancy between PoE and DC power. Video analytics, supervised inputs, and digital outputs further support
the surveillance task.
