With the MV12 series of enterprise surveillance cameras, Meraki does it again: Impossibly easy to set up and operate. And the Meraki MV12N Smart HD Camera comes with everything needed right in the box. As a matter of fact, you can add cameras to a network before they even arrive, and adjust optical and software settings remotely.
Plus, not only can you manage these cameras from a central dashboard, but you can do it from your phone. The ease of use is really crucial to having a smoothly operating, transparent network.
All MV cameras shoot in HD and contain internal solid-state storage.
The MV12 series consists of the MV12N, MV12W, and MV12WE. At 73°, the MV12N has a narrow FOV that aids in identifying subjects close up. The MV12W has a wide field of view (114°), providing context footage. The MV12WE (also 114°), offers reduced storage and a wide FOV at a more affordable price.
The MV12W and MV12WE are exactly the same with respect to specifications. The only difference is in the solid state storage dimensions (128GB for the WE and 256GB for the W).
Meraki MV12N – The camera that thinks
Most of the time, cameras don’t provide much value beyond theft prevention. But Meraki has changed that with the MV12 series minidome cameras. They can analyze customer foot traffic, discover demographic information, or even alert staffers that someone might need assistance.
And, the Meraki MV12N Smart HD Camera works great as a security camera at the same time. Especially with its night vision capabilities, which operate in near total darkness.
It’s super easy to set up as many of these as you want, and configure a video wall for watching over different areas of a facility. And, you can watch live or recorded video without any special equipment. Any authorized user can tap into the system from a PC or smartphone.
More about the built-in smarts
More just a video recorder, the MV12N has on board intelligence that can generate heat maps showing how people move around and where they stop to browse. So for example, a store manager building a new display can check the daily heat map to see if it’s getting noticed by customers.
The MV12 series can also send out real-time alerts to staff to help customers out. For example, a customer might stop in one place for a period of time. That might indicate that they’re really interested something on display, or may need assistance. At that point, a sales associate could be sent by the camera to help out.
In addition, you can even create custom apps enabling you to add even more functionality. This small camera is very smart, and very easy to use.
So, whether streamlining an operation, creating richer customer experiences, making a safe school even safer, or anything in between, MV Sense makes ‘sense’ of your MV camera’s observations. And, it allows you to use your security camera for much more than just security. Meraki MV turns cameras into sensors. And MV Sense turns them into a powerful analytics tool.
