Cloud Managed
Smart Cameras

The MV family brings Meraki magic to the enterprise video security world. Impossibly simple to deploy, configure, and manage, MV provides reliable security and valuable business insights to organizations of any scale.

Centralized Cloud Management

The Meraki dashboard provides secure monitoring and management of all your cameras from anywhere in the world, no extra software required.

Everything's in the Box

With video storage and powerful hardware, there’s no need for an NVR or extra analytics packages.

Super Secure

Cameras automatically purchase publicly signed SSL certificates and all Meraki management data is always encrypted by default.

Bandwidth Conscious

A novel architecture places video storage on the camera, not in the cloud, ensuring mission critical network activities get the bandwidth they need.

A Family of Cameras for Every Deployment

MV cameras come with everything needed for a successful deployment in the box. Add cameras to a network before they even arrive, and adjust both optical and software settings remotely.

  • Integrated, high-grade solid state storage on each device
  • Up to 1080p high definition resolution
  • Advanced, mobile-grade processor on each camera*
  • A range of models for multipurpose deployments
  • 3 year warranty on all hardware

*On all second generation cameras (with model number
ending in 2).

  • Cutting Edge Architecture

    By utilizing solid state storage on each camera, the MV family has removed the network video recorder (NVR) and its complexity from the equation.

    Bandwidth Conscious

    Use WAN bandwidth only when needed. Less than 50kbps of metadata streams to the cloud per camera when footage is not being viewed, eliminating excessive WAN usage.

    Never Stop Recording

    Since video is stored on the edge, cameras will
    continue to record even if the network connection fails. Solid state storage and intelligent software allow for customizable video retention.

    Cloud Archive Options

    Make sure every box is ticked with backup cloud archive, optional on every MV camera. 90 and 180 day options are available to suit a variety of sensitive areas and can be purchased and applied to individual cameras in a fleet.

  • Secure By Default

    Secure data is just as important as the smart cameras you choose. Meraki’s pedigree in networking security means MV is built to be secure from the ground up. By default, data is encrypted through every step.

    At Rest

    Video is encrypted at rest on each camera, meaning you’ll never have to ask another ‘what if’ again, knowing your video is safe and sound straight out of the box.

    In Transport

    All video streams, both local and remote, are secured with strong industry standard encryption. By using TLS with AES encryption, and publicly signed certificates, MV takes the guesswork out of retrieving video from the camera securely. View video natively in your web browser: no plug-ins or additional configuration required.

    During Management

    Leveraging Meraki’s experience and expertise in keeping enterprise-grade networks safe from threats, MV also benefits from encrypted management and strong authentication. Say goodbye to flimsy hard-coded passwords and self-signed certificates, say hello to two factor authentication and peace of mind.

Anytime, Anywhere

Stream local, stream remote. View customizable
video walls from anywhere in the world using
the Meraki dashboard in a web browser.

Automatic Network Detection

The Meraki dashboard will automatically detect whether the viewing computer is in the local network or somewhere remote. Local streaming video never goes to the cloud, saving bandwidth, while remote streaming video is proxied through the cloud allowing it to be viewed from anywhere.

Beyond Just Security

MV utilizes a powerful onboard processor to analyze video and provide valuable insights without the need to send those video files to the cloud or a local server.

Motion Heat Maps

Quickly assess foot traffic in a retail store or monitor where hotel guests are congregating in the lobby. Motion heat maps only require a small amount of metadata, rather than bulky video files, to provide results with big impact.

Available on all second generation camera models (with model number ending in 2).

Object Detection

Learn which displays are attracting the most customers or how many people came to the office last Thursday. The ability to detect people using computer vision and increase accuracy over time through machine learning will provide deep business insights that were previously only possible with bulky servers.

Available on all second generation camera models (with model number ending in 2).

Privacy Matters

All MV analytics functionalities are anonymized to ensure privacy while still providing intelligence. You’ll know that a customer entered your store at 3:38, but not that her name is Sarah.

An all-in-one smart camera solution.

Better data

We process the video for you using our machine learning algorithm

No onsite servers

All the processing is done on each camera, at the edge

Powerful options

Three types of API calls (including an MQTT feed) allow for flexibility in development


Do more to keep students safe: push an alert directly to security guards or law enforcement if a person is detected loitering on school grounds after hours. Or, work with the local fire department to create a one-touch system for verifying the school has been evacuated in a drill.


Enrich the in-store experience by triggering media when more than 10 people arrive or quickly understand wait times for grocery queues at every branch location around the world.


Keep employees out of harm’s way. Shut off dangerous equipment automatically if a person enters a restricted area or set off an alarm if the person count drops below the safe minimum number of operators.

A Storage Sidekick
Just in Case

Introducing new cloud archive options

90 and 180 day cloud archive options ensure every box is ticked. Flexible licensing means you only pay for backup on the cameras that need it,
nothing more.
