Cisco Meraki’s MV family of security cameras are exceptionally simple to deploy and configure. Their integration into the Meraki dashboard, ease of deployment, and use of cloud-augmented edge storage, eliminate the cost and complexity required by traditional security camera solutions.

Like all Meraki products, MV cameras provide zero-touch deployment. Using just serial numbers, an administrator can add devices to the Meraki dashboard and begin configuration before the hardware even arrives on site. Cameras can be up and running within minutes of connecting to the network. In the Meraki dashboard, users can easily stream video and create a live video wall for monitoring key areas across multiple locations.

Introducing MV

With an unobtrusive industrial design suitable for any setting—and available in indoor (MV21) and outdoor (MV71) models—the MV family simplifies and streamlines the unnecessarily complex world of secu- rity cameras. By eliminating servers and video recorders, MV frees administrators to spend less time on deployment and maintenance, and more time on meeting business needs.

High-endurance solid state on-camera storage eliminates the concern of excessive upload bandwidth use and provides robust failover protection. As long as the camera has power it will continue to record, even without network connectivity. Historical video can be quickly searched and viewed using motion-based indexing, and advanced export tools allow evidence to be shared with security staff or law enforcement easily.

Because the cameras are connected to Meraki’s cloud infrastructure, security updates and new software are pushed to customers auto- matically. This system provides administrators with the peace of mind that the infrastructure is not only secure, but that it will continue to meet future needs.

Simply put, the MV brings Meraki magic to the security camera world.


  • Meraki dashboard simplifies operation
  • Cloud-augmented edge storage eliminates infrastructure
  • Suitable for deployments of all sizes: 1 camera or 1000+
  • Intelligent motion indexing with search engine
  • Easily export and share historical video
  • Secure encrypted control architecture
  • No special software or browser plugins required
  • Granular user access controls


Cutting Edge Architecture

Meraki's expertise in distributed computing has come to the security camera world. With cloud-augmented edge storage, MV cameras provide ground breaking ease of deployment, configuration, and operation. Completely eliminating the Network Video Recorder (NVR) not only reduces equipment CAPEX, but the simplified architecture also decreases OPEX costs.

Each MV camera has up to 20 days of integrated, state of the art, industrial-grade storage. This cutting edge technology allows the system to efficiently scale to any size because the storage expands with the addition of each camera. Administrators can rest easy knowing that even if the network connection cuts out, the cameras will continue to record footage.

Cutting Edge Architecture

Isolate Events, Intelligently

Meraki MV cameras use intelligent motion search to quickly find important segments of video among hours of recordings. Optimized to eliminate noise and false positives, this allows users to zero-in on relevant events with minimal effort.

The MV motion indexing offers an intuitive search interface. Select the elements of the scene that are of interest and dashboard will retrieve all of the activity that occurred in that area. Laptop went missing? Drag the mouse over where it was last seen and quickly find out when it happened and who was responsible.

Isolate Events, Intelligently

View Things Your Way

Installing plugins, changing browser settings, and deploying custom software are now relics of the past. Meraki MV uses the latest web technology to provide a fluid video experience within the Meraki dashboard—all seamlessly integrated with the other products in Meraki’s lineup.

Drag and drop camera feeds to create any number of video walls with up to 12 cameras per layout. When resizing the video tiles, the rest of the layout dynamically updates to accommodate the changes. Once the perfect layout has been created, layouts are shared accross all users, preventing the need to create them again and again.

Easy To Access, Easy To Control

There is often a need to allow different users access but with tailored controls appropriate for their particular roles. For example, a receptionist needing to see who is at the front door does not need full camera configuration privileges.

The Meraki dashboard has a set of granular controls for defining what a user can or cannot do. Prevent security staff from changing network settings, limit views to only selected cameras, or restrict the export of video: you decide what is possible.

With the Meraki cloud authentication architecture, these controls scale for any organization and support Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) integration.

Easy To Access, Easy To Control

Common-sense Industrial Design

Knowing camera installation is costly, time consuming, and critical to the success of the system, Meraki developed the MV family with special attention to the simplicity of physical installation. The MV21 typifies this by requiring no tools to adjust the lens or attach it to the mounting bracket.

Each camera ships with wall and ceiling mounts and the MV21 also includes adapters for rapid attachment to ceiling T-rails. For more demanding outdoor installations, additional mounting accessories are available to meet a variety of deployments. All MV models can be powered with a standard Ethernet cable and PoE, making cable installation as straightforward as possible.

Both the MV21 and MV71 offer high deployment flexibility with a vari-focal lens, integrated night vision, and infrared (IR) illumination. This allows cameras to be positioned in a variety of locations and situations while providing the best video security possible.

Common-sense Industrial Design

Simply Cloud-managed

Meraki's innovative GUI-based dashboard management tool has revolutionized networks around the world, and brings the same benefits to networked video surveillance. Zero-touch configuration, remote troubleshooting, and the ability to manage distributed sites through a single pane of glass eliminate many of the headaches security administrators have dealt with for decades. Best of all, dashboard functionality is built into every Meraki product, meaning additional video management software (VMS) is now a thing of the past.

Additionally, features like the powerful drag-anddrop video wall help to streamline remote device management and monitoring — whether cameras are deployed at one site, or across the globe.

Simply Cloud-managed

Secure And Always Up-to-date

Centralized cloud management offers one of the most secure platforms available for camera operation. All access to the camera is encrypted with a public key infrastructure (PKI) that includes individual camera certificates. Integrated two-factor authentication provides strong access controls.

All software updates are managed automatically for the delivery of new features and to enable rapid security updates. Scheduled maintenance windows ensure the MV family continues to address users' needs with the delivery of new features as part of the all-inclusive licensed service.
