What's new: January 2022

What's new: August 2021

Dual recording
Dual recording default behavior has changed.
IMPORTANT: Dual recording is now enabled by default (and cannot be turned off) for all end user accounts when new Axis cameras are enrolled that have SD cards in the ready state.

The default setting ensures that when video recordings are stored in the cloud, a copy is also recorded on the SD card. This is a useful benefit for customers with unstable network connections who want to ensure there is always a backup copy of their videos on the SD card for time periods when their video could not be uploaded to the cloud because of network issues. The cloud storage can also provide redundancy for when the SD card becomes full.

NOTE: If you do not want dual recording, contact Stratocast™ support to disable this function for your account.
