Axis Communications has introduced the Axis housing configurator, an online service for system integrators, consultants, specifiers and end users. It provides the user with a step-by-step guide to choosing the correct housing, brackets and respective accessories.

The configurator allows significant time and cost savings during both the product selection and installation processes.
Whenever users are looking for a suitable housing solution for an Axis network camera, they can use the configurator tool by providing some key information relating to the purchase.
Firstly, they’ll need to state the country for which the installation is planned – this is vitally important as it dramatically impacts the installation process, as hundreds of variations need to be taken into consideration, including climate and regulations.
Once all the information has been inserted, such as the planned location, application and the preferred placement, the user gets a choice of possible housings and their accessories.
In the last step, users can choose the brackets that are recommended for their specific configuration and then receive a list of all necessary parts for the installation, including cables and power supply.
To give maximum piece of mind to the user, the complete list of parts with different options, product names and numbers can be downloaded as a PDF file for easy inclusion within a tender or a specification document.
Roy Alves, country manager at Axis Communications, says: “Axis has been receiving requests for a service such as this from all over the world and today we are very excited that we can offer this new service to our partners and customers. Important time savings can be realised, especially by our partners who can be sure that they will have all relevant accessories needed to complete their installation.
“Choosing the right housing and brackets for the different cameras in different applications can be a lengthy and complex procedure. The configurator is the ideal solution to support integrators in this process”.
If users have any queries during the selection process they can contact Axis via a direct contact facility. The enquiry will then be instantly forwarded to Axis’ CRM system. Easy to use and with an intuitive interface, the online configurator is immediately available for free on the Axis website.
