New edge-based QR code reader for convenient access control

New edge-based QR code reader for convenient access control

Axis Communications announces a new ACAP (AXIS Camera Application Platform)-based solution that makes it possible for Axis cameras and intercoms to function as QR Code®* readers in an access control system. This powerful edge-based analytic leverages the outstanding video quality of Axis devices for reliable, convenient touch-free entry.


Simple to install and cost-effective to manage, AXIS Barcode Reader ensures streamlined access control for both single- and multi-door scenarios. It’s ideally suited to a mobile-first society: in advance of a visit, trusted guests are sent a QR code with a specific date and time of validity, which they can store on a mobile device or print. When they present the code to the camera or intercom during the valid window, relevant data is sent to an Axis door controller, granting access.

Key features

  • Reliable, cost-effective QR code reader
  • Single- and multi-door support
  • IP solution—no physical wiring required
  • Scalable and edge-based
  • Flexible and future-proof

Built on an open platform, this app is compatible with third party solutions and fully integrated with AXIS Camera Station Secure Entry where operators can create and distribute credentials to visitors. Furthermore, without the need for plastic cards—or new devices—this access solution treads lightly on the environment.

Licenses for the AXIS Barcode Reader will be available through Axis distribution channels in April 2022.
