MV13 Datasheet

This article outlines the MV13 datasheet, highlighting its 8 MP image quality, up to 4k video Resolution, 101.3° horizontal field of view, and compact dome design, ideal for monitoring with advanced analytics, low bandwidth needs, and enhanced security features for scalable deployments.


The Meraki MV13 offers 8MP image quality and combines physical security and advanced analytics in a powerful yet compact fixed-lens mini dome form factor. With an edge architecture that minimizes physical infrastructure and software requirements, MV13 enables faster, easier deployments and greater scalability.


Security in High Definition

The ultra-high-performance MV13 camera supports up to 4K resolution for high-definition video and with IR illumination, delivering the level of detail needed to stay on top of what matters the most.

Compact and easy to install, MV13 camera boasts a new universal mounting place compatible with various mounting accessories, delivering the right viewing angle wherever they are placed. MV13  cameras are ideal for monitoring entrances, exits, and the general perimeter from walls, ceilings, or corner-mount locations.

Using machine-learning-based computer vision, MV13 cameras can perform real-time object detection, classification, and tracking of people and vehicles, as well as attribute detection and search to increase safety and provide valuable insights into activity. These smart cameras deliver powerful business intelligence without compromising physical security.
