Rack-mountable recorder with 16 channels and a built-in switch for connecting up to 16 cameras (maximum of PoE class 4 per port), which offers an effective recording solution suited for small to medium-sized businesses. The powerful integrated PoE switch with max. 305w budget means additional network switches are not necessary to get the system up and running, supporting all Axis cameras. Any resolution and frame rate are supported, and data is securely and reliably stored on the 4 surveillance-grade hard drives available in 8 TB, 16 TB or 32 TB formats (select size from dropdown menu) with hardware RAID for increased resilience and peace-of-mind.


This high-performance 16-channel recorder supports connections for all Axis cameras and devices, and the built-in gigabit switch provides 2.5 gigabit uplink for recordings in all resolutions and frame rates, resulting in ultra-high-definition video with an overall bitrate for recording of up to 256Mbit/s.

Video Management

Users have free access to the Axis Companion application which offers a simple yet intuitive system config and video viewing solution, allowing live monitoring, playback and export of recordings. This can be accessed via mobile device, or through the PC version for a wider array of setup options. For more advanced and tailored solutions, the recorder can also be integrated with Axis Camera Station.

Video Analytics

Video motion detection software is included in Axis cameras and made available via the Axis Companion App for configuration, and camera-based detection of activity can trigger preset alarms so the event can be recorded and forwarded to the mobile app for further investigation. Cameras with greater functionality can take advantage of more advanced software such as Axis Object Analytics or Axis VMD 4 to further enhance automated monitoring and security.


The S3016 is a rack-mountable recorder which can be installed in server racks with a post-to-post distance of 376mm (14.8in) - 499mm (19.6in). Installation in deeper server racks is possible via rail extensions (not included, accessories below).
