Video surveillance made simple

AXIS Companion video management software is simple to set up. And even simpler to use. Not only that, it gives you effortless control from anywhere.

Available at any time, from anywhere

Yes, you can have effortless control over your security camera system and all your video, all the time. With Axis Secure Remote Access technology, you can control your cameras from anywhere. View and export recorded footage, going back for a month or even more.

Peace of mind in your pocket

Real-time alert notifications keep you aware of any suspicious activity and can be customized to suit your needs. And thanks to the flexible user management it's easy to control what different users have access to in the system.

Flexible and reliable recording solutions

Unlike traditional surveillance solutions, AXIS Companion does not require a central recording device and images can be recorded onto an SD memory card in each camera. Axis offers a wide range of high endurance SD cards optimized for surveillance. The cameras are powered over the network, eliminating the need for separate power cables. This reduces cost and simplifies the installation.

Expand your system

AXIS Companion video management software supports the large portfolio of Axis video surveillance devices. You can easily expand your system for any changing needs. A tight integration of network cameras, video encoders, network door stations and network speakers ensure you will get the most out of your surveillance system.
