Users are able to remotely access live views or recordings and easily manage their video data with support for the free Axis Companion application for mobiles and PC.
The versatile recorder is fully compatible with all Axis network cameras and encoders with firmware 8.40 or later; and supports the monitoring and recording of up to 8 cameras at any resolution/frame rate. Its built-in PoE switch allows up to 8 cameras or encoders to be easily connected and powered without the need for additional hardware; and the high-performance unit can be supplied with either a 2TB or 4TB surveillance-grade hard drive – which offers plenty of storage capacity for any small-sized business application. In addition, users are also able to easily export video footage for further investigation via the unit’s handy built-in USB port; and display to a local monitor is possible through the Axis Companion application for Apple TV or Android TV.
Access to video management settings, live monitoring, playback and export of recordings is all done using the Axis Companion application. This free, easy to use application makes surveillance simple with no need for network or router configuration. Axis Companion is available as a mobile app, or users can opt to make use of the PC version which has more features – allowing more detailed configuration of settings.
Camera-based video motion detection alarms can be configured to trigger recording via the Axis Companion application to increase scene awareness and provide reliable security monitoring. In addition, one-way audio recording is possible, depending on the audio capabilities of the connected camera, and acts as a helpful complement to video when reviewing footage for investigation purposes.
Designed with ease-of-use as a priority, this cost-attractive recorder features a simplified setup wizard; as well as a compact form factor that allows unobtrusive installation in a secure location where camera cables can be easily routed. An optional mounting bracket is available (not included) to fix the recorder in position on a wall, under a table or on a shelf. The unit comes with Axis’ 3-year warranty as standard, which users can also choose to extend to 5 years (sold separately) to further future proof their surveillance solution.
