The P8221 Network I/O Audio Module provides eight configurable input/output (I/O) ports plus audio capabilities. Sensors such as a door switch, smoke detector, IR detector or glass break detectorâ€”used for triggering an alarm eventâ€”can be connected as inputs. Output ports can be connected to control devices or relays, to open/close doors or turn on/off lights upon alarm. High quality audio can be encoded in AAC at up to 128 kbit/s bit rate with 32 kHz sampling. It has a built-in low power amplifier for small speakers so there is no need for an external preamplifier. It also has phantom power for a balanced microphone. AXIS P8221 has support for Power over Ethernet (POE).

New selector buttons have been added when searching on servers located in different time zones. The user now has the choice to search based on client time or based on server time.

Additional functionality has been added to the Storage Setup page. In addition to showing how many days of video has been recorded on each camera, a new tooltip appears on a mouse hover that shows the date of the oldest video for that camera.
With this release we continue to make rapid progress with exacqVision, and incremental releases have hit about every 2 months. A large number of new features have been added in a short period of time. You can see the full release history of exacqVision here:
