Since these products do not support SD cards, a NAS (Network Attached Storage) device is required.
|NOTE:||AXIS Camera Companion is compatible with devices with firmware 5.40 or higher installed. Not sure about your firmware? Please visit firmware page for version.|
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.
More details: Edge storage
|Reference product||Size||Speed class|
|SanDisk Extreme SDHC-card||32 GB||10 or higher|
|SanDisk Extreme SDXC-card||64 GB||10 or higher|
NOTE: There are limits for how many times you can rewrite an SD-card. Enhanced memory cards like SanDisk Extreme are better suited for demanding applications, such as professional 24/7 surveillance applications. Lower graded consumer SD cards, mainly suitable for multimedia applications, will in many cases also work just as fine, but the bigger variation in quality and durability of these cards makes them less suitable. When using the AXIS Camera Companion default settings, the lifespan of an SD-card is likely to be several years.
See the network camera/video encoder specification for product specific details on supported SD cards.
When longer retention time is needed and/or the system comprises of a large number of video channels, the AXIS Camera Companion supports Network-Attached Storage (NAS) recording. This also allows cameras without edge storage support to be part of an AXIS Camera Companion system, and record video to the NAS

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
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.
