Smart Cameras


The Cisco Meraki MV product family is a line of indoor and outdoor networked cameras that are exceptionally simple to deploy and configure, due to their integration into the Meraki Dashboard and their use of cloud augmented edge storage. The MV family eliminates the complex and costly hardware required by traditional solutions, thereby removing the limitations typically placed on video surveillance deployments.
