The design of the AXIS T83 Microphones allow for discreet and flexible installation. The microphones can be used for covert audio detection or as a complement to an indoor video surveillance. An interrogation room can be a typical surveillance scenario where good audio quality is a key factor. The room can be located at a police station customs office detention or at a social office. Another scenario can be at a bank or a postal office where the microphone is used for surveillance.
Audio detection may be useful to a security operator interested in listening to what is happening at a specific location in order to evaluate the urgency level in a situation e.g. a sound of fighting screaming slamming doors or gunshots. Audio communication can also be a third scenario where a network camera with the microphone is used to communicate as an intercom system.
