A complete solution
The solution is built around the AXIS Companion video management software which allows users to view live or recorded video at their premises or even remotely from another location.
Video surveillance is set up using the dedicated AXIS Companion IP-cameras that connect to the AXIS Companion Recorder, an 8-channel network video recorder with built in PoE switch allowing 1-2 months of recording.

Network video recorder
For longer retention time needed and when the system comprises of a larger number of video channels, the AXIS Companion Recorder is the recommended solution. It supports up to 8 Axis cameras and also provides PoE to the cameras.
Uninterruptible Power Source (UPS)
In locations with unreliable power, a UPS can be a good investment to ensure maximum uptime. This is particularly beneficial for an AXIS Companion system that uses Power over Ethernet to power its cameras over the network, since a single UPS can then be used to secure not only the network equipment but also all the cameras in the system – a clear advantage over analog DVR-based systems.
A router is typically used whenever wireless cameras are used, wireless local access is required or when remote access is enabled. Routers with Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) simplifies installation of Axis’ wireless cameras. Routers with UPnP simplify the setup of remote access to a system.
