OpenEye Web Services (OWS) and Axis

The OWS integration to AXIS Guard Suite receives Fence Guard and Loitering Guard video analytics events from compatible Axis cameras. OWS uses these analytics events to trigger recording and macro events at the recorder level, as well as generate alerts using the OWS Alerts Engine. Customers are able to search analytics event history, using any OWS remote client, to quickly locate analytics events for video verification. At this time, AXIS Motion Guard is not supported in this integration.

What you get:
  • Receive OWS alert notifications triggered by AXIS Guard Suite events
  • Increase recording retention by only recording high-resolution video when analytics events occur instead of on all motion events
  • Search for line crossing and loitering events in OWS remote clients
  • Ensure more accurate event alerts based on intelligent video analytics
    • Reduce false alerts from OWS by using video analytics on its own or combined with other OWS ecosystem events, such as a sites intrusion panel armed state, to trigger alerts
  • Locate important video incidents quicker by searching for specific analytics event types
  • Leverage the full capabilities of your Axis cameras when connected to an OWS recorder
