When you need reliable detection at any time of the day or night, AXIS P1280-E Thermal Network Camera delivers. And it gives you great value for money. This compact and discreet camera can be mounted behind surfaces, recessed, or on walls– whichever best suits your requirements.
Thermal detection within reach
AXIS P1280-E delivers all the benefits of thermal detection at a price that’s within reach. Thanks to built-in analytics – or advanced analytics from our partners or Axis – it reliably detects people, vehicles and objects regardless of light conditions or attempts at camouflage. It can be used as a cost-effective detector with visual confirmation for safety of both people and property in numerous environments. It also helps to decrease false alarms.
Where privacy is paramount
Ideal for schools and care homes, AXIS P1280-E can be used as a sensor to avoid compromising privacy. That’s because thermal imaging detects incidents without revealing personal details of the people in the image. Together with analytics, the thermal camera can trigger alerts or alarms in response to patient or resident falls, allowing staff to take immediate action. It can also be used inside and outside buildings to identify unauthorized access before, during, or after certain hours.
A choice of lenses for wide and narrow views
AXIS P1280-E is available in two variants with a choice of lenses to meet your specific requirements. A 2.2 mm lens offers a 63 degrees field of view for a wider view that covers more of the scene, and a 4 mm lens with a viewing angle of 36 degrees for capturing narrower fields of view with longer detection distances.

The ranges are calculated with Johnson’s criteria and they are purely theoretical. The values may vary in different weather conditions. For detailed information about Johnson’s criteria, please read the white paper.
A video analytics powerhouse
AXIS P1280-E comes with built-in analytics including AXIS Motion Guard, AXIS Fence Guard, AXIS Loitering Guard, as well as support for AXIS Perimeter Defender. It features a powerful processor and it’s easy to add 3rd party analytics to your surveillance solution. For example, video analytics applications from our partners support swift and appropriate response to detected events by analyzing them, automatically dismissing non-threatening ones, and instantly notifying security staff of potentially critical situations.
