We don't hide the fact that we're fans of the Meraki brand here, and that's because they're doing genuinely impressive things to improve the state of networking in the 21st Century. They don't simply have the easiest-to-use architecture and infrastructure for creating an endlessly scalable corporate network. They have an entire ecosystem of devices which are all inter-compatible, including devices you might not typically expect from a networking company - like their MV series of WiFi security cameras.
Their MV series of cameras is downright revolutionary - easily deploy-able go-anywhere WiFi cameras that connect directly into the Cisco Meraki infrastructure, and which can be managed from the same dashboard as all your other networking hardware. Now, the line has expanded with two new models, including one of the toughest outdoor cameras you'll find anywhere. Plus, there's the new MV Sense software upgrade - smart software that expands the possibilities in your Meraki
Let's take a look...
Introducing The MV22 and MV72 Meraki Smart Cameras
The Meraki MV22 security camera is their most advanced indoor cam yet, featuring a smartphone-grade processor and a massive 256GB of on-board high-speed

The Meraki MV72 has similar specs to the MV72, but with one major difference: it's ruggedized for outdoor use. And we do mean rugged! It features an IK10+ impact resistance rating, currently the highest rating that exists, along with IP67 weather resistance. Simply put, very little short of a hurricane or catastrophic earthquake could knock out the MV72. Plus, it can operate in temperature environments ranging from -40°C - 50°C (-40°F - 122°F), so there truly are few places it can't go.
Whichever camera you pick, it integrates quickly and seamlessly into your existing Meraki network. All settings and operations are controlled through the Meraki Dashboard, with easy
What Is MV Sense And Why Do You Want It?
Meraki isn't merely introducing new cameras, they're also offering new features. MV Sense is a separately-licensed software upgrade which adds human recognition and machine-learning APIs to your MV-series cameras. With MV Sense, they can perform tasks such as tracking individual customers' movement around your sales
This can also have security purposes, such as keeping track of the total number of people on a job site. If that number changes unexpectedly, you can be alerted! Plus, the programmable APIs mean that creative deployments and utilization of these technologies are possible. MV Sense radically expands what a security camera can do.
In short, we continue to be genuinely impressed by Meraki's MV-series security camera offerings, and we're happy to include them as part of our product lineup. To learn more about Meraki security systems, contact us for a consultation!
