* Note: Since these network cameras do not support SD cards, a NAS (Network Attached Storage) device is required.
AXIS Camera Companion records video to SD/SDHC-cards in the network cameras. A 64 GB SD-card can typically store more than a month of video. There are limits for how many times you can rewrite an SD-card. The lifespan may vary between brands and different application (access patterns). When using the AXIS Camera Companion default settings, the lifespan of an SD-card is likely to be several years. More details: Edge storage
|Reference product||Size||Speed class|
|Sandisk SDHC-card||32 GB||4 or higher|
|Sandisk SDXC-card||64 GB||4 or higher|
See the network camera/video encoder specification for product specific details on supported SD cards.
As an alternative to local video recording to an SD/SDHC card, AXIS Camera Companion supports Network-Attached Storage (NAS) recording. This allows cameras without edge storage support to be part of an AXIS Camera Companion system, and record video to the NAS. Naturally, in such a system, the cameras do not become individual recording devices, but will require a network to function.

|Netgear ReadyNAS Ultra 2||Up to 16 cameras|
|Iomega px-4||Up to 16 cameras|
|Synology DS112||Up to 16 cameras|
In locations with unreliable power, a UPS can be a good investment to ensure maximum uptime. This is particularly beneficial for an AXIS Camera Companion system that uses Power over Ethernet to power its cameras over the network, since a single UPS can then be used to secure not only the network equipment but also all the cameras in the system – a clear advantage over analog DVR-based systems.
A Power over Ethernet (PoE) switch provides power to cameras over the network, removing the need for separate power cables.

A router is typically used whenever wireless cameras are used, wireless local access is required or when remote access is enabled. Routers with Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) simplifies installation of Axis’ wireless cameras. Routers with UPnP simplify the setup of remote access to a system.
