Buffalo Americas, a leading provider of external storage, network attached storage and networking solutions, today announced the TeraStation™ 5200 Network Video Recorder (NVR) series with embedded support for AXIS Camera Companion. The TeraStation 5200 NVR provides a complete turnkey video surveillance network attached storage (NAS) solution, offering redundant managed storage and recording for use in conjunction with Axis Communications network cameras and the complimentary AXIS Camera Companion software. Buffalo’s latest NVR offering features AXIS One-Click Camera Connection setup and can record and archive video footage from up to 16 Axis network cameras, making it the ideal solution for small businesses looking for seamless installation and deployment of a reliable, all-in-one IP surveillance network.
Small businesses, such as retail stores and restaurants, want to update their video surveillance infrastructure due to the rapid advancement and adoption of digital technology. However, some businesses and installers have delayed this transition because they value the simple plug-and-play functionality associated with traditional analog surveillance systems. To address this concern, Buffalo and Axis partnered to provide businesses and resellers with versatile, high-performance IP surveillance networks that can be effortlessly set up and maintained over long periods of time, as well as deliver benefits of IP video such as HDTV-quality recording.
“Retail and restaurant establishments, along with other small businesses, are leveraging cost-effective NAS devices to handle the influx of data created by next generation IP video surveillance systems,” said Brian Verenkoff, director of product management, Buffalo Americas, Inc. “The TeraStation 5200 NVR with AXIS Camera Companion support provides a feature-rich and cost-effective surveillance solution without complicated installation or advanced network configurations.”
TeraStation 5200 NVR
The TeraStation 5200 NVR is optimized to deliver video surveillance functionality with various features and capabilities:
- Features Axis’ One-Click camera and NAS configuration for seamless surveillance network deployment
- Supports up to 16 HDTV-quality Axis IP cameras
- Offers high compatibility with AXIS Camera Companion video surveillance solution
- Provides redundant dual drive NVR technology, eliminating downtime during HDD failures
- Equipped with two specially designed hot-swap NAS Edition hard drives designed for 24x7x365 recording, providing increased reliability and longevity
- Offers a scalable solution allowing months of continuous 24x7 recording and the ability to add cameras at any time (up to 16 total)
- Support for third-party iOS and Android mobile apps for playback viewing, anytime, anywhere
- Pre-configured for easy installation within minutes
- Easily pairs with a Buffalo PoE Web Managed Switch to efficiently power IP surveillance cameras and segment network traffic for increased performance and reliability
- Three-year warranty and 24/7/365 U.S.-based technical support for life with a dedicated toll-free line for surveillance products
One-Click Setup and Configuration
AXIS Camera Companion software makes it easy to configure an Axis network camera to record to a NAS and can be used for live viewing and accessing recorded content. One-Click camera and NAS setup greatly simplifies the deployment of a camera network, determining the number of cameras on the network and allowing the user to select which cameras to manage. Once selected, AXIS Camera Companion communicates with the NAS and automatically sets up quotas, users and shares, and then automatically configures the cameras to connect to the NAS. As a result, the installer never has to log into the NAS device or the cameras to have a fully functioning surveillance network up and running in minutes. Additionally, the system can operate with only the TeraStation 5200 NVR and the cameras running; no PC or server-based device is needed except for during setup or post-setup configuration and viewing.
“Axis is extremely pleased with Buffalo’s focus and investment in the physical security markets, especially here in North America,” said Vince Ricco, business development manager, Technology Partner Program, North America, Axis Communications, Inc. “Buffalo is a great example of a traditionally IT-focused technology provider who sees the opportunity to help the physical security market bridge the gap from outdated analog CCTV to IP-based systems. Buffalo enables the market by understanding the traditional Axis channel partners and helping to provide them the right solutions, tools and support to lower the total cost of ownership in small IP video systems.”
Pricing and Availability
The TeraStation 5200 NVR is available now at an estimated MSRP of $799.99 for the 2 TB (TS5200D0202S), $999.99 for the 4 TB (TS5200D0402S) and $1299.99 for the 8 TB (TS5200D0802S). All TeraStation NAS solutions are backed by a limited three-year warranty that includes toll-free U.S.-based technical support available 24/7.
