OpenEye Web Services (OWS) and Axis 

OWS offers a native integration with Axis devices for both Axis video, audio and analytic events. The integration allows you to create alerts with video verification, along with audio where supported*, and provide more actionable intelligence to secure and support your business. 

The OWS integration to AXIS Object Analytics (AOA)* receives person-detected and vehicle-detected events, while the integration with AXIS Guard Suite receives Fence Guard and Loitering Guard video analytics events from compatible Axis cameras. OWS uses AOA analytic 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 and AOA object attribution is not supported.

NOTE: This integration is only available with certain licensing tiers. See OWS Licensing for more information.
