There is a new site survey tool available to help you design a camera deployment. It can be found here: https://meraki.cisco.com/public/mv-site-survey/index.html [MOD NOTE: Updated link June 2021]
Solved! Go to Solution.
Ran into a situation today where this would have been great to present to the customer. While we can use it in this condition, I can not present it to them missing these cameras though. Hopefully this is coming soon.
In the drawing, the camera size should be reduced. if we take a printout of the exported report then camera size showing too big.
Hi George, is there any news on the survey tool for the cameras? I noticed that it's currently not available at all anymore? I think it is a great tool to have (and I actually wish that Cisco Meraki also offered a similar tool for their Wi-Fi access points). Thanks!
I was on the link https://meraki.cisco.com/products/security-cameras/site-survey just now and the new Cameras was still not there 😞
Hi all. I have tried uploading several different PDF files of floor plans but none of them works in the site survey tool. Do you know if there are any special requirements of the files that is uploaded?
If you need something very similar IPVM has a great tool. https://calculator.ipvm.com/
Also, they are very responsive in getting new Cameras/specs updated as they come out.
Basically we are evaluating what makes sense to maintain and update on an ongoing basis. As of right now, we recommend people use the IPVM tool (https://calculator.ipvm.com/) or System. Surveyor (https://systemsurveyor.com/free-trial) as they regular update these tools. Full disclosure there will be limitations to both unless you have accounts so fair warning. Having a 'go to' tool for planning and design is something we know people desire and is top of mind on how we make this happen so please stay tuned.
could you have a look at the 'Planing: Survey Tool updates and enhancements request' thread?
As a contributor said it bellow, nice piece of history...
