MV Quick Start

Table of contents

Overview

If you just want to get started without reading any more, just follow these basic steps.​

  1. Log in to the Meraki Dashboard at https://dashboard.meraki.com. If this is your first Meraki device, create a new account. 

  2. Find the Dashboard network you wish to add your cameras to, or create a new camera network. If a camera option does not appear on the Create Network page, please Contact Meraki Support for assistance.

  3. Add your cameras to the network. You will need the serial number of each camera which can be found on the bottom of the cameras base or on the box that the camera arrived in. 

  4. Unpack your MV. 

  5. Connect your MV a PoE wired connection with internet access.

  6. After powering on, your MV will download the latest firmware from the Meraki Cloud and update itself. This process can take up to an hour depending on the speed of your internet connection. 

  7. Setup the cameras as desired using the "Configure" section of Dashboard.

  8. You're done! You should now see an live video feed from your cameras on the Dashboard.

 

For model specific information and more detailed instructions, please see our Installation Guides or the instruction pamphlet within your MV box.

Note: It is extremely beneficial to utilize the Meraki mobile app when doing first time deployments.

NoteDuring first time setup, the camera will automatically update to the latest stable firmware. Some features may be unavailable until this automatic update is completed. This process may take up to 10 minutes due to enabling of whole disk encryption.
