What's the issue you're facing obtaining your API keys? As per our Docs, you'll need to enable API access by going to Organization > Settings > Dashboard API access, and then go to your profile (Click your email at the top right of any Dashboard page and click "My Profile") to generate a key.
It says: "To design modules based on the above mentioned activities, video feed shall be provided to the student teams. These feeds shall come from the Meraki security camera. Typically, these shall come from the actual / imitated site i.e. schools, food serving area etc."
Do you have access to the Meraki org that is hosting the camera? If so then follow the tip that @ConnorL has supplied.
On searching about how Meraki cameras work, I've found that they perform object detection on the camera and transfers the metadata over the APIs. Do they have any models built-in onto the on-board processor or they access the models through API?
If the models are accessed through API, then if the internet connectivity is lost the cameras do nothing but recording the video.
>Do they have any models built-in onto the on-board processor or they access the models through API?
Foir the kind of cameras mentioned, MV12, they have a people detection model built into the camera. You have no access to the model. You can only retrieve a snapshot picture (or video clip) when it triggers.
>If the models are accessed through API, then if the internet connectivity is lost the cameras do nothing but recording the video.
The cameras keep recording if the Internet is lost. All processing is done on the camera. Typically if you are using the people detection you use MQTT, which is sent locally from the camera to an MQTT server that you operate.
