Overview of Axis P1204
The Axis P1204 is a tiny IP camera designed for covert surveillance. The camera's lens module measures only 18mm across yet captures HD 720p video, with improved clarity and sharpness compared to other covert cameras. The lens module is also separate from the camera's main unit. These can be separated by up to 8m, allowing the main unit to be mounted away in a secure location.
Multiple mounting options for the lens module are available. Brackets are included for flush mounting or mounting at a 15° angle. Alternatively, the camera can be mounted behind a flat surface up to 5mm thick, with only the tip of the lens visible for ultra-discreet monitoring. This is ideal for mounting the camera inside other items or devices.
The P1204 also features integrated recording, allowing the camera to be deployed quickly without the need for recording appliances. Video is stored either onto a MicroSD card slotted into the camera's main unit or to networked storage. Additionally, the I/O system allows the camera to be triggered by external sensors such as door switches or push buttons, increasing the flexibility of the recording system.
This camera does not include a power supply. If you require a Power over Ethernet midspan, please select one from the options above. A version of this camera with recessed-mountings is also available: Axis P1214 covert IP camera with recessed-mount brackets.

This camera is designed for covert surveillance. It is suitable for indoor locations where malicious activities need to be captured without alerting the perpetrator, for example cloakrooms, IT rooms, warehouses, nursing homes and cash handling areas. Alternatively, the compact lens module is ideal for integration inside other devices, such as timekeeping machines or door-entry systems to capture clear facial features of operators.
