A new era of security is finally here, surveillance just got a whole lot simpler and way cooler. Network video recorders (NVR) and standalone video management software (VMS) are things of the past, re
tired to the island of misfit toys. Never to return…unless a hipster brings them back to life like the typewriters and Polaroid cameras. Just stop it, Hipsters.

And hopefully gone are the days when a news anchor will ask us if we have seen a man, taken by what looks like the first Nokia camera phone in the early 2000s with 2MPs. It’s about time someone introduced a sleek, simple to deploy, cloud managed and affordable solution.

So why has Meraki entered the world of surveillance? Well Meraki has been simplifying IT since the beginning, it only makes sense for them to add security cameras to their portfolio. And with the well-loved Meraki Dashboard, these security cameras might just be the best thing since sliced bread.

Here are the tech specs:

Bandwidth Conscious
Use WAN bandwidth only when needed. Less than 50kbps of metadata streams to the cloud per camera when footage is not being viewed, eliminating excessive WAN usage.

Never Stop Recording
Since video is stored on the edge, cameras will continue to record even if the network connection fails. Solid state storage allows for up to 20 days of continuous, 24/7 recording.

Cloud Managed
The Meraki cloud architecture is built for reliability, security, and scalability. Already supporting over 500,000 customer networks, it features built-in redundancy, advanced security features, and a 99.99% uptime SLA.

Laptop gone missing?
Retroactively select the desk or conference table where it was last seen and the dashboard returns a list of motion events that can help lead to its recovery.

Export and Share Video Clips
Select important video segments and export from the dashboard to a shareable and downloadable link. With granular access controls, decide who has access to historical footage and exporting privileges.

Intuitive Design
Easily search historical footage using natural language processing and go from identifying an event to sharing it in just a couple of clicks. The elegant dashboard interface allows for remote management, the way it should be.

Currently there are two cameras to choose from with simple licensing:

Adjust and re-adjust lens positioning without ever reaching for the toolbox.

IP66 and IK10 rated plus integrated heating elements for demanding environments.
Built for Simplicity

MV cameras come with everything needed for a successful deployment in the box. Add cameras to a network before they even arrive, and adjust focus, aperture, and zoom settings remotely.

• 128GB industrial grade solid state storage on each device
• 720p HD recording with H.264 encoding
• IR illumination for nighttime security up to 30m (98ft)
• 3-10mm vari-focal lens for multipurpose deployments
• 3 year warranty on all hardware
