    HI Freddy - Nx Witness is sold through a network of distributors and resellers. If you tell us more about yourself/your company we can point you to the right company in your region to provide you pricing.

    How do you guys handle multi-sensor cameras? I am using an Axis Q3708-PVE and it is requiring 3 licenses. Should that be the case?

    Is there any charges for the mobile app? Are the I/O control and two way communication available on the mobile app?

    Is Nx Witness installed on a Raspberry Pi consider NX-Edge? If so does that mean you can only record one camera to a Raspberry Pi?

    Waiting for an answer to a question which is similar to Duncan Millers question above. "Is Nx Witness installed on a Raspberry Pi consider NX-Edge? If so does that mean you can only record one camera to a Raspberry Pi?"

    As stated above:

    2. EDGE Recording License (Nx-Edge)

    • Enables recording of captured video on ARM servers.
    • One license channel per camera.
    • Only one license key could be activated on a device.
    • Never expires.

    Does "Only one license key could be activated on a device." mean per raspberry pi device? This would not be the case I hope. I am looking at running approx 4/5 cameras on a raspberry pi using nx server, this would mean i will need 5 Nx-Edge licences, yes? I hope this is possible.

    HI Nicolas,

    Until recently, Edge licenses were meant for ARM-based servers (Raspberry Pi and Banana Pi) only. 
    Soon (likely when we launch v4.0) we will allow Professional licenses for ARM-based servers after they have been validated by our team. 

    Regarding: 

    "Does "Only one license key could be activated on a device." mean per raspberry pi device?"

    This still applies, but this also means you can use more than one camera per RPI, but one license key can contain 4 channels (or 1 or 2 or 3). You can request this up front when you place your order. Currently, the limitations for an ARM-based server is 4 cameras, but likely this will change as well. 

    For more information, please reach out to you local Nx Witness distributors.

    "one license key can contain 4 channels (or 1 or 2 or 3)."

    So if I go for one licence key with 4 channels, the pricing is same as purchasing 4 Edge licences?

    "Currently, the limitations for an ARM-based server is 4 cameras"

    Do you mean in relation to licencing? On this page at the bottom https://www.networkoptix.com/nx-witness-server/ it mentions 'up to 8 streams for a Dual Core ARM', Im assuming a 'Dual Core ARM' could be a Raspberry Pi?

    What if I want to run 5 cameras from 1 Raspberry Pi device? 

    So can a Raspberry Pi 3+ running Nx Server handle 8 streams with motion detection on?

    Hi Nicolas, 

    Currently, you would need the Edge licenses for an RPI and you could buy an edge license containing 5 channels. 

    If you have 1 key with 5 licenses, it would cost you 5 times the license price. 

    For an RPI 3+, 5 cameras should be fine, depending on the resolution, compression, framerate, etc. (5 HD cameras at medium compression @ 25 FPS)

    But from v4.0 on, we will support the regular Professional licenses. This means you can add as many licenses as you want and as many keys as you like. That being said, obviously, 60 channels on an RPI won't work, but you could do it. 

    Also, we will launch an ARM device validation tool at the same time as we launch v4.0. With this tool, you can validate your ARM-based board and if the tool approves the hardware, we will support it.
