Downloads of AXIS Camera Companion reach ten thousand

Downloads of AXIS Camera Companion, an entry-level IP video solution for small installations, consisting of a free software client and Axis network cameras or video encoders with SD-card support, have reached a milestone ten thousand this month.


AXIS Camera Companion has been specifically designed for systems of one to 16 cameras and is proving popular with retail stores, offices, hotels and other small businesses that need easy-to-use and future-proof video surveillance with HDTV quality.

The solution was launched at the end of March and was showcased at IFSEC last month where many installers took up the challenge of installing the kit in the fastest time.

James Drinkwater from NW Systems Group won himself an iPad by securing the fastest installation time which was sub two minutes. James said: “This solution is so easy to install, even under pressure. It is very intuitive and the system is up and running in minutes. Not only this, but the end result is a high-end HD surveillance system and therefore extremely high quality images.

“It delivers the quality of solution that large IP installations benefit from on a far smaller scale which is very appealing to smaller businesses that need to protect their assets.”

Phil Doyle, regional director, Northern Europe, at Axis Communications said: “The competition at IFSEC was great fun, but there was good reason for it as we wanted to prove to the market just how quick and easy this solution is to install.

“The demand for this solution speaks for itself with the number of downloads there have been in just two months, and we expect interest in this to continue as more businesses become aware of just how accessible next generation CCTV is to them.”
