AXIS Camera Companion is the market’s easiest video surveillance solution for small systems up to 16 cameras. It offers future-proof IP advantages such as superb digital HDTV image quality. The system consists of standard Axis cameras, SD cards, software clients for PC and smartphones, and standard network equipment. The software has extensive language support.

Direct access to HDTV image quality

Mobile access

AXIS Camera Companion delivers crisp, clear HDTV image quality, for reliable identification of people and incidents. It is easy to access the system over the Internet to view live or recorded video from home or from another site. With its PC client, as well as viewing apps for iPhone, iPad and Android, AXIS Camera Companion lets you view video at any time – from anywhere.

A 64 Gbyte SD-card typically stores more than a month of video. More details: Edge storage

A cost-efficient, robust system

The free AXIS Camera Companion software client only needs to be used at installation. For viewing live or recorded video, or exporting video after an incident, either the client or a smartphone app can be used. With AXIS Camera Companion, all video is recorded on SD memory cards in the cameras. No central DVR, NVR, PC or server is necessary – making each camera a smart, independent video recording device!

AXIS Camera Companion removes the single-point of failure which is common in alternative solutions where a DVR failure prevents all cameras to be recorded. The cameras in an AXIS Camera Companion system record video regardless of the network status.

Easy, straightforward operation

AXIS Camera Companion is developed with focus on ease of use for the casual as well as the more active end user. The interface is simple and intuitive, with easy access to the most common activities, such as viewing live video, searching through recordings and exporting videos and snapshots. You can step through recorded video and export high-quality HDTV video clips or snapshots to colleagues and authorities.

Scalable and future-proof

AXIS Camera Companion is a scalable and future-proof network video solution for up to 16 cameras. Adding new cameras to the system is easy. No extra charge or additional equipment needed. Existing analog cameras can be integrated using Axis video encoders. If you want to step up to another IP solution in the future, you can re-use all your installed Axis network cameras and video encoders, as well as your network equipment.
