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
Secure monitoring and management of all your cameras from anywhere in the world, no extra software required.

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

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

Novel architecture places video storage on the camera, not cloud, ensuring critical network activities get the bandwidth they need.

A family of cameras for every deployment

•   Successful deployment in the box

•   Adjust optical and software settings remotely

•   Integrated, high-grade solid state storage

•   High definition recording

•   Advanced, mobile-grade processor on each camera*

•   Range of models for multipurpose deployments

*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. 30, 90, 180 and 365 day options are available to suit a variety of sensitive areas and can be purchased and applied to individual cameras in a fleet.


Anytime, anywhere
Stream local or remote with automatic network detection. 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.

Secure by default

Our pedigree in networking security ensures the Meraki MV is built to be secure from the ground up. By default, data is encrypted through every step.

At rest

Video is encrypted while on the 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

Both local and remote video streams are secured using TLS with AES encryption, and publicly signed certificates. View video natively in your web browser: no plug-ins or additional configuration required.

During management

MV 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.

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.

Object detection

Learn which displays are attracting the most attention, or how many people came into the office last Thursday. Detect people and vehicles using computer vision, and increase accuracy over time through machine learning.


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.
