"List price" is the suggested retail price provided to us by our vendors. We make no representation that a substantial number of these products have been sold or offered for sale at the list price. Actual retail prices in your area may be substantially different. Since we sell products on a national basis, it is not possible to know if our merchandise is sold at list price in any particular location or at any particular time. "You Save" reflects the difference between our price and the vendor provided list price shown on our sites. Since the list price may be different than the actual retail prices in your area, you may not actually realize a savings of this amount.

Manufacturers sometimes ask that retailers not display a price if it drops below a certain amount. The "Click here to see Lowest Price" message indicates that the price of the item is so low that the manufacturer requested that it not be advertised (that is, displayed). In a brick-and-mortar store, you would probably have to ask a salesperson what the price of the product is. At eCOST, by clicking on "Click here to see Lowest Price" you are essentially asking to see the price, at which point we show it to you.

AXIS 214 PTZ Network Camera is a high performance camera for professional surveillance and remote monitoring. It combines a high quality color camera with the flexibility of remote pan/tilt/zoom operations through operator control. Incorporating an 18x optical motorized lens with auto focus, the AXIS 214 PTZ allows the user to zoom in on a small or distant object with exceptional clarity. The movability of the camera enables it to cover a wide field of view.

With automatic day/night functionality and the highly light sensitive CCD, this camera provides perfect color images in low-light conditions as well as sharp black and white pictures in extremely poor lighting conditions. The built-in audio support enables remote users to not only view, but also listen in on an area and communicate orders or requests to visitors or intruders, thereby increasing the monitoring options.

Pre- and post-alarm image buffering, video motion detection, scheduled and triggered event functionality with alarm notification together with two-way audio makes the AXIS 214 PTZ ideal for remotely monitoring people and property. This network camera is designed for use in mid-sized businesses, such as retail stores and supermarkets, transmitting images over the local area network or the Internet.
