Meraki Cloud Archive for MV Cameras

Genuine Cisco Meraki Product

For Meraki Smart Cameras – extends the recording retention to 90 or 180 days.

All MV models (first and second generation—MVX1, MVX2) are supported



Featuring integrated solid state storage onboard every camera, the MV product line has revolutionized the typical surveillance architecture, completely eliminating the need for a network video recorder (NVR) or other storage server. Using optimized retention tools in the management dashboard, users can make informed decisions about balancing video quality with their organizational retention needs, ensuring they achieve the perfect balance.

Still, there are times when legal requirements or other regional regulations may necessitate longer durations of continuous 24/7 recording or off-site backup. Cloud archive options for MV cameras fill in these gaps by allowing for 90 or 180 days of continuous backup recording.

  • Copies of video are stored on both the camera and in the cloud
  • Video files stored in the cloud are always continuous, 24/7 footage
  • The camera is always prioritized over the cloud by the dashboard for video retrieval (unless the camera is either unreachable by the cloud or the timestamp of the video file being requested is older than what is supported)
  • If the camera goes offline, it will still record footage as long as it has power, but this footage will not be backed up until it regains a connection to the WAN
  • 90 and 180 day license options are available, on a per-camera basis


Figure 1: When cloud archive is enabled on a camera, and the camera is online,
data flow will follow the standard path: both local and remote viewing devices
will pull video directly from the camera memory. A backup video file is stored in
the cloud, but not utilized in this case.

Figure 2: When the camera is offline, or the timestamp for the video file
exceeds the camera’s hardware memory capacity, all video will be viewed as a
remote stream, with viewing devices retrieving video data from the cloud.
