The camera does not work. People are still stealing cookies from the glass jar.

Any news on UK availability yet ? It's been 25 weeks now. I asked at IPEXPO and everyone on the Meraki stand just shrugged their shoulders. I'm desperate to get these into the hands of our customers

There's a new term gaining popularity. Read all about it here:

https://meraki.cisco.com/blog/2016/06/it-merakified/
When our friends at Cisco coined the term “Merakify”, we loved it so much we wanted to share it with everyone!

That was fun. Even for a cat person like myself. Oooh, you should do a cat video - 8 hours showing the corner of a couch. :-) Thanks Simon.

We have some customers that prefer our watchful eye and what I do is just tack on a monthly maintenance fee and they are cool with it.

New today. ICMP firewall rules and switch templates. You like?

https://meraki.cisco.com/blog/2016/03/introducing-switch-templates/
Building and maintaining multisite networks just got even easier! A year ago we published a blog post covering configuration replication for multisite networks. We covered Security Appliance and Wireless templates, and the closest equivalent we had at the time for switches: cloning.
