The Axis Companion App Explained… in 45 seconds

Elisa Swanson-Parbäck, solution marketing manager at Axis Communications, attempts to explain the Swedish surveillance pioneer’s AXIS Companion app in just 45 seconds at IFSEC 2016.

Designed for small businesses needing to monitor their premises, people and assets, the AXIS Companion video management software is pitched by Axis as quick and easy to set up and intuitive to operate.

Benefits of the Axis Companion range include:

  • Easy, intuitive surveillance
  • Secure, remote access to video footage
  • Mobile app
  • Quick, simple system set-up
  • Scalable – up to 16 cameras per location
  • Future proofed
  • Tight integration with all products in the AXIS Companion Line

“AXIS Companion is flexible and functional, easy to use, and offers a credible alternative to traditional video surveillance system design.” Benchmark Magazine

AXIS Companion video management software permits viewing of live or recorded video within premises or from a remote location.

Dedicated AXIS Companion IP-cameras can connect to the AXIS Companion Recorder, an 8-channel network video recorder with built in PoE switch allowing 1-2 months of recording.

Last year Axis launched a Camera Companion upgrade and microSDXC Card 64GB. Produced in partnership with SanDisk the microSDXC Card 64GB is an edge storage memory card optimised for surveillance applications. The AXIS Camera Companion 3 is a major upgrade of the its award-winning surveillance solution for small systems.

“The penetration of AXIS Camera Companion in small businesses shows that users really appreciate the simplicity, ease-of-installation and freedom of use that it offers. This new version further streamlines the installation process and provides even more flexibility for small security systems,” said Peter Friberg, Axis’ Director Solution Management after the launch.

“The combination of AXIS Camera Companion 3, the new AXIS Surveillance microSDXC Card 64GB and the recently announced Axis’ Zipstream technology for reduced bandwidth and storage needs futher aligns our solutions to meet the unique needs of the small systems market.”

Says Oded Sagee, senior director and general manager of Connected and Computing Solutions at SanDisk: “Working with Axis, a market leader in network video, we have gained unique insight into the needs and requirements of surveillance applications, thus allowing us to optimise our products for this use.
