Optimized for basic surveillance needs

AXIS Camera Companion is a simple yet sophisticated video surveillance solution for businesses needing to monitor their premises. It is an efficient solution for small systems with 1-4 cameras, but there is also full support for up to 16 cameras. What is unique with the system is that no external PC or recording device is needed for the system’s day-to-day operation – the only time a PC is an absolute requirement is when installing the system. Once installed, the system runs independently on Axis IP cameras, utilizing the cameras’ own capabilities for efficient video surveillance.

Freedom of use

AXIS Camera Companion provides the essential video surveillance tools in an intuitive, easy-to-use interface that allows users to focus instead on their core business. The mobile viewing app and Axis Secure Remote Access technology allow users to keep up with events from the surveillance site even from other locations. 

Efficient storage on the edge

The AXIS Camera Companion solution is particularly well-suited for systems with 1-4 cameras using SD cards for the storage of video. The cameras are configured with motion detection-triggered recording as the default setting to maximize storage time. The recommended SD card – AXIS Surveillance microSDXC Card 64 GB – is engineered specifically for use in video surveillance and ensures lasting performance for a solution that overwrites the card completely every 1-2 weeks. To use more cameras or for longer storage periods, the system can easily be configured to store video on a NAS. Please see the recommended NAS models for an optimal solution configuration.

Secure remote access made easy

Setting up remote access is made simple with Axis Secure Remote Access technology. No network- or router configuration is needed. The site is set up with remote access during the installation procedure, which then allows access to cameras on a smartphone immediately after installation.
