Requirements and Recommendations
Requirements and Recommendations
Minimum Requirements
Before you install the AXIS Camera Station, make sure these requirements are
met:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Pentium 4, 1 GHz processor
256 MB RAM
Hard disk: 1 GB for installation and 2 GB or higher per camera as image
database
NTFS file system
CD-drive
XGA (1024 x 768) or higher resolution monitor
Graphic card with 32MB or more memory
Microsoft mouse or compatible pointing device
100 Mbit Ethernet
Microsoft Windows XP Professional, Windows Server 2003 or Windows
2000 with SP4.
Microsoft Internet Explorer Version 6.0 or later.
Internet Information Server (IIS) installed on the C-drive of your server if
you intend to use the web interface.
Microsoft .NET 1.1 Runtime environment running (with AXIS Camera
Station software)
Recommendations
For optimal software performance, use these PC setup conditions:
• When more than 16 cameras are enabled, use dual processors and/or
hard disk controllers like RAID, for optimal performance.
• SCSI disks perform better than IDE disks, since no PC processor power is
used to control the disks and the access time is shorter than IDE. Hard
disks should be minimum 7.200 RPMs.
• The target frame rate is for single jpeg grabbing with motion detection
on. Better performance can be obtained using cameras with built-in
motion detection or external alarm detectors like PIR's etc.
• Windows XP is the recommended OS for optimal performance.
• For optimal network performance, 100Mbit switches should be used.
Hubs can be used for installation using less than 6-8 cameras. There are
no known limitations on networks when switches are used. If this
software is installed in an existing network with high traffic, consider
using a dedicated switch and add a second network adapter to the PC.
AXIS Camera Station User’s Manual

Requirements and Recommendations
• As preventative maintenance, it is recommended that you regularly
check that cameras, recordings, triggered events, motion detection, etc.
are functioning properly.
• It is recommended to install a UPS to secure camera operation in case
of power failure.
Important!
It is recommended that you run disk defragmentation of your hard drives on a
regular basis to improve the performance of the system. See your Windows
documentation for instructions.

Camera IP Address
(WAN)
Specify the WAN IP address or host name from where AXIS Camera Station
should fetch live images. This might be the same as your LAN IP address, but
depends on your network/Firewall/NAT.
If you have changed the default port settings in the camera, it must be changed
here accordingly. You can e.g. specify a port number other than the default port
by adding :port after the IP address. Example: 10.13.6.128:8080
The WAN must be specified if a client or web interface client is run from
another network than AXIS Camera Station. If no WAN address is available,
enter the LAN address.
If you have changed the default port settings in the camera, it must be changed
here accordingly. You can e.g. specify a port number other than the default port

AXIS Camera Station User’s Manual
AXIS Camera Station Administration
Enable Audio
Check this if the AXIS 2191 Audio Module is used with the camera. This enables
full duplex live audio between camera/microphone and user. Audio from
recordings is not possible.
FTP
AXIS Camera Station usually gets images from the camera via HTTP, but it is
also possible to record images via FTP, whereby the camera first pushes the
images to an FTP server, from where they are then fetched. This may be done to
e.g. reduce the power used to fetch images to AXIS Camera Station and thus
save network bandwidth.
Note:
Live view is not possible from AXIS Camera Station over ftp, only recorded
images can be sent to an FTP server.
The camera contains the settings that specify when to send images over ftp,
see your Axis camera documentation for details. The FTP server can be installed
on the same server as AXIS Camera Station or on another server within the
same Windows network.
The camera must be set up to send a file via FTP on I/O activity. This file must
be sent to c:/temp/ftpdir/alarmin/ and the file must be named so that it
contains the name of the I/O.
Example: If the I/O is named FrontDoor, the file from the camera should be
named e.g. FrontDoor.jpg or FrontDoor00045.jpg so that it is properly recognized
by AXIS Camera Station.
Note:
IIS has an integrated FTP server that needs to be enabled manually. See your
Windows documentation for instructions.

Recordings
All settings that pertain to Recordings; e.g. motion detection, recordings triggered by an incoming signal from an input/output and saving recorded images
are defined under this tab.
Select camera
Select any of the available cameras. The maximum number of cameras
available is determined by your license.
Recording Method
Continuous recording
Check this if you want the server to continuously save images. This option uses
much more disk space than recording only when motion is detected or when
there is an external alarm.
Record every (seconds)
Set the recording frame rate (X frames per second). If 0 is selected, the frame
rate specified in the Target recording frame rate (fps) bar is used.
Record on I/O alarms
Check this to start recording when there is an incoming alarm from an I/O. This
could be from a device connected to an I/O, e.g. from a door switch, a smoke
detector, etc.
Some Axis camera's have their own built-in motion detection, which can be
used independently of AXIS Camera Station. Check this option to use the
camera's own motion detection to trigger recordings in AXIS Camera Station this will be treated as any other I/O alarm.
When setting up motion detection in the camera itself, there are two ways that
detected motion can cause an alarm in AXIS Camera Station:
•
•
26
By uploading images to the same FTP directory as specified in AXIS Camera
Station.
By configuring the camera to also trigger an I/O when motion is detected.
AXIS Camera Station User’s Manual
AXIS Camera Station Administration
Record on motion
detection and I/O
alarms
Check to store images to hard disk when motion is detected or when there is an
I/O alarm. Use of this feature is recommended, as it saves on hard disk space
and uses less processing power as compared to continuous recording. Note that
motion detection here refers to the functionality included in AXIS Camera
Station, and not in the camera itself.
This box must be checked if the Record on I/O alarms check box is not checked
and you want the camera to start on I/O activity.
Alarm when motion
stops
Check if you want recording to start when motion stops. This is useful in e.g. an
industrial environment for detecting when machinery stops running.
Motion Detection
Settings button
Motion detection is an important feature of AXIS Camera Station. This feature
saves hard disk space and gives the option to send alarms when motion is
detected on the camera.
To set up motion detection:
1. Under Recordings, select a camera from the Select Camera drop-down list.
2. Click on the Motion detection settings button.
3. Click the Set Grid button to select the part of the image to scan for motion.
Left-click and drag to add new areas. Right-click and drag to delete areas.
The grid may be shown in different colors, but this is simply to increase
visibility. Click OK when done.
Click to select

4. Next, set the motion detection sensitivity level in the Motion Detection
window. Under normal viewing conditions, i.e. when there is no motion in the
image, move the sensitivity slider until there are a few green bars in the
Motion detected bar.
1. Set the sensitivity
level of the motion
detector until a few
green bars
appear in the Motion
Detected bar.
LOW
HIGH
2. Set threshold
where recordings
should begin,
according
to the sensitivity
slider position.
Tip: Set the sensitivity level on low (far left)
- in areas showing a lot of motion, e.g. a high-way
- in low light conditions, e.g. for night setting
5. When there is motion in the camera's image, set the Recording at slider to
the level where you want the recording to begin. If the Motion Detected bar
exceeds this setting, there will be an alarm and recording will begin.
When motion is detected with your new settings, the green Motion
Detected icon is shown. The red Recording icon is also displayed, and will
remain for several seconds, depending on the Images to start/stop setting
on the Recordings tab, see Recordings, on page 26.
When AXIS Camera Station is running, it will automatically detect if it is
day or night. This way, you can set specific motion settings for lighting
conditions. Most cameras generate "noise" in the image at low light
conditions and can initiate a false motion detection alarm. To remedy this,
select lower sensitivity (slider on far left) for the night setting.
Record to Hard Disk
Save Recordings to...
Specify where to store your images. This field must always begin with a disk
drive letter, hard disk drive letters "C" to "K" can be used.
The same directory can be specified for multiple cameras, in which case subdirectories are created in the specified directory.
Note:
•External storage devices can be used if they are shared and available as
shared disks in Windows.
•AXIS Camera Station’s service user must also be changed, as AXIS Camera
Station uses a default Local user: Control Panel | Administrative tools

Recording Buffers and
Duration
Pre-event recording
buffer (seconds)
Specify how many seconds of images you want to record before motion is
detected or the alarm is triggered. Up to 50 images can be saved in this buffer.
Post-event recording
buffer (seconds)
Specify how many seconds of images to record after motion detection or the
alarm has ended.
Maximum event time
(minutes)
The maximum recording period (in minutes).
The Maximum event time is used to divide the Continuous recording into
events of X minutes.
The input/output definitions specified under the External I/Os tab are affected
by this parameter. See Input/Output, on page 38 for information on configuring
inputs and outputs.
•
•
If the maximum is reached but motion is still detected at an input, a new
event is created and recording continues. SeeExample 1: Maximum alarm
event time - Input, on page 30.
If the maximum is reached but motion is still detected at an output,
recording will only continue the time specified here. See Example 2:
Maximum alarm event time - Output, on page 30.
AXIS Camera Station User’s Manual
29
AXIS Camera Station Administration
Example 1: Maximum alarm event time - Input
Event time = 5 minutes means that an
input event will time-out after 5 minutes.
If the maximum time is reached but motion is still
detected at an input, a new alarm event
is created and recording continues.
Example 2: Maximum alarm event time - Output
Event time = 5 minutes means that an
output event will time-out after 5 minutes
and recording will stop.
Defining an alarm event as an Input or Output is described inInput/Output, on page 38
Images to start/stop
alarm
Recording starts when motion is detected or an external alarm is triggered. By
setting the Images to start/stop alarm, it is possible to set how many images
with no action/alarm should pass before the event ends and the server returns
to its "normal" state.
When using the Alarm when motion stops option, set the number of images
with no motion allowed before the event triggers and recording is started. This
can help reduce unnecessary triggering for only very slight changes.

devices and activate e.g a siren or a light.
See Example 2: Configure an alarm received from an OUTPUT on an AXIS
camera or video server, on page 41
Normally Open or Normally Closed. This determines how the device on the I/O is
configured. You can choose an open or closed I/O as the normal state:
•
•
Normally Open means that the power streaming through the I/O is broken,
and there is no power pulse flowing through. An alarm can then be set up
to trigger when there is a constant power pulse, i.e. when the I/O closes.
Normally Closed means that there is a constant power pulse flowing
through the I/O. An alarm can then be set up to trigger when the power
pulse flowing through the I/O is broken, i.e. when the I/O opens.
Flip-Flop
Enabling Flip-Flop means that for outputs, the I/O will return to its normal
state after a few seconds.
Example: A gate is normally closed (NC). In this case, enabling Flip-flop means
that if the gate is opened the I/O device can be setup to automatically close the
gate after a few seconds.
I/O type-specific data
Enter the IP address of the camera/video server the I/O is located on. Enter the
user/password for accessing the Axis device, if required. All Axis devices have a

AXIS Camera Station Client
AXIS Camera Station Client
The AXIS Camera Station Client application is used for remote operations on
client workstations, where you can perform the same tasks as from AXIS
Camera Station (if Administration is enabled).
From a client PC you can e.g. acquire and save images, detect motion and save
alarms and images without having to access the server PC where settings and
recordings are stored.
Important!
AXIS Camera Station uses port 11007 to communicate with the client. On the
server, make sure that port 11007 is open and available for the clients in your
network and in your firewall.
Note:

Some difficulties may arise in Windows XP to login to the website, although
the Anonymous login is unchecked and Windows integrated security is
selected. This usually happens on Windows XP. Windows XP is by default setup
in the IIS so that even though you have logged in as a user, you may only be
granted access as a guest. This is solved by giving the guest the necessary
access.

If you are logged in as a User on the network you may experience problems
when trying to run a backup on another PC on your network.
This can be solved as follows:
To run a backup on another PC the PC must first be shared so that other user’s
have write-rights. You must then modify the users registered in AXIS Camera
Station accordingly, because the users in AXIS Camera Station are registered as
local users and cannot reach other PCs.
1. Log in to AXIS Camera Station Properties.
2. Choose This account and browse to the user on the desired domain (the AXIS
Camera Station's taskbar icon will no longer be visible after this operation).
The backup is scheduled to run every night at 2400.
