After seeing Cisco Meraki present at Tech Field Day Extra at Cisco Live US 2019, Aaron Conaway considers the possibilities of being able to integrate cameras with systems like badge readers. This would allow for really extraordinary things like sending the security team a video of a developer trying to get places he should be going. Or, perhaps, the camera can be smart enough to know that an event is happening and do something about it.What if we looked at security cameras in a completely different light? What if the camera becomes something else? Enter the Cisco Meraki Motion Search 2.0 software features for MV cameras. This package takes video to another level for the second-generation MV cameras.

They weren’t content to increment on the existing solutions available on the market and add it to their dashboard.

With WiFi becoming your primary source of network access, maintaining a clean RF environment becomes a high priority. […]
Sam Clements of SC-WiFi comments: When Cisco acquired Meraki last year, there was much confusion. Being ‘down in the trenches’ I struggled as much as the next guy trying to wrap my head around the acquisition and I believe I have a good handle on it. Others not so much. I regularly consult with customers […]
