AXIS Camera Station

Optimized for easy and efficient surveillance

Upgrades

Free upgrade of (AXIS Camera Station 3 & 4) Channel licenses to Core Device licenses with AXIS Camera Station version 5.17 and above. During the upgrade, you may be requested to contact Axis for verification of your existing license key(s).
 

From AXIS Camera Station version 5.17, the limit of maximum 32 Core Device Licenses per system is removed. This means that Universal Device Licenses are no longer needed for systems containing only Axis devices.

Trial mode

When adding new devices to the system, a trial period of 30 days is offered for the newly added devices.

How many licenses do I need?

eLicenses

The AXIS Camera Station licenses are available using electronic delivery, this is the recommended way of licensing. When eLicenses are ordered there will be no physical delivery. Compared with traditional software licensing, eLicensing generates savings on delivery times, delivery costs, distribution costs, storage space and environmental impact.

Any number of licenses can be ordered at once (i.e. 9 Core Device Licenses, 57 Universal Device Licenses…) but a separate order must be placed for each server.

Traditional licenses

Regular licenses are available in packs of either 1, 4, 16 or 32 for Core Device Licenses and packs of 1, 4, 10 or 20 for Universal Device Licenses, except for in North America (please use eLicenses instead). From AXIS Camera Station version 5.17 and above, an unlimited number of Core Device Licenses may be added to an AXIS Camera Station Server. 

Type of licenses

Core Device licenses

Core Device licenses apply to Axis devices such as Axis network cameras.

Universal Device licenses

Universal Device licenses can be used for Axis devices or to add Third party device support.

Upgrades

Core Device licenses can be upgraded to Universal Device licenses thanks to an AXIS Camera Station Core to Universal Upgrade License. It is primarily used when one wants to use an existing Core Device license for a third party device. One of these licenses in combination with a standard Core license gives one Universal license.
Do NOT use this for upgrades from prior version of AXIS Camera Station. E-License article number: 0879-030. Printed license article number (Not available in North America, please use eLicenses in this region instead): 1-pack, 0879-130. 5-pack, 0879-140. 10-pack, 0879-150. 20-pack, 0879-160.
 

When adding new devices to the system, a trial period of 30 days is offered for the newly added devices.
