On-the-go access to surveillance system from Apple and Android devices with new mobile apps for AXIS Camera Companion and hosted video solutions

Mobile surveillance apps make it possible to access a surveillance system over the Internet to view live or recorded video from home or from another site.
CHELMSFORD, Mass. – September 23, 2014 – Axis Communications, the global leader in network video surveillance, today launches mobile surveillance apps for its AXIS Camera Companion and hosted video solutions to provide users with quick and easy access to their surveillance system from anywhere with Apple and Android devices.

“Small system users value flexibility and ease of use, and with these new mobile apps, users have even more flexibility with remote access to their high definition surveillance video right from their mobile devices,” said Ryan Gregory, systems and solutions manager for business development, Axis Communications, Inc. “These new in-house developed mobile apps not only assure optimal performance and compatibility, but also give our customers the tools they need to efficiently secure their operation wherever they are.”

The mobile surveillance apps allow the user to easily switch from live view to recorded videos from any location within their surveillance system. The integrated timeline notifies about triggered events and allows the user to take immediate action. Single images and video of interest can be easily stored to their mobile device and shared when needed.

To further strengthen our offering, Axis launches the mobile apps with the updated AXIS Camera Companion 2.2 with support for Axis Mobile Streaming. This technology is specially designed to give quick and easy access to live and recorded high definition videos even for installations where bandwidth is limited.

Both apps are compatible with iOS and Android devices and will be available for download free of charge online and on the App Store and Google Play. The new app for AXIS Camera Companion is available today to download, while the new app* for hosted video is planned to be available for download in October. For more details and download links, see
