Overview of the Axis Companion application for mobiles and PC

Note: this product is for information only. The Axis Companion application can be freely downloaded from Axis Communications or mobile app store.

The Axis Companion application is free, easy to use and makes CCTV simple. With no need for network or router configuration, it’s never been easier to get your CCTV system up and running – all from your mobile device, no PC needed. Supporting up to 16 Axis IP cameras, the application supports a range of video surveillance features, multi-user management and the export of recordings. It’s ideal for small businesses and home users that require straightforward video surveillance with easy access from mobile devices.

The user can record footage from their Axis IP cameras directly to each camera's on-board SD card, without the need for central recording hardware. This is a very cost-effective set-up for a home user or small business. Alternatively, the system can be configured for multiple cameras recording onto a Network Attached Storage (NAS) device, ideal for businesses that require large amounts of data to be stored for longer periods.

Users can purchase an SD card with each Axis IP camera that we offer, supplying you with everything you need to start monitoring and recording effectively.

The application includes a range of features to help enhance security monitoring. Multi-user management allows users to customise levels of access to camera sites for different user groups; Operator, Viewer or Administrator. Camera-based video motion detection alarms can be configured to trigger recordings which can be viewed via a timeline and then quickly exported in either JPEG or video format. Additionally, the user can take a handy snapshot with the click of a button in live or playback viewing modes – ideal for quickly gathering evidence.

Thanks to Axis’ Secure Remote Access technology, live or recorded video footage can be easily accessed from a mobile device or laptop, without the need for network or router configurations. Additionally, Axis’ Remote System Management enables users to perform firmware upgrades and restart connected devices remotely – allowing a more proactive approach to video surveillance.

An easy-to-use setup wizard allows for the quick addition and configuration of cameras – supporting up to 16 network cameras at any one site. Axis really have put a lot of effort into making it easy to create a simple CCTV system and plenty of instructional videos are available to help users along the way. Network Webcams customers can also use our free helpdesk to obtain assistance from our team of experienced technical support staff.

Please note: The PC client has more features than the mobile application and is suitable for users that would like to configure settings in more detail.
