Verkada camera features are unique and advanced. They can transform your business security and operations from sufficient to optimal.
Modern, Secure Architecture
No NVR. No insecure points. Full HTTPS/SSL encryption.
Verkada eliminates the need for local servers and NVRs. Out of the box, Verkada cameras are automatically self-firewalled. Each camera communicates via encrypted, outbound connections. Video footage that's stored on each camera is encrypted with PKI to prevent unauthorized access.
Optimal Video Retention
Storage for 30 days of continuous recording. Data encrypted at rest. Available options to support longer retention needs.
Verkada applies a tiered, differentiated approach to meet your organization's video retention needs without hindering your local area network. Select data is security uploaded and made readily accessible to authorized users within Command. Full HD video footage is stored on the camera, which comes equipped with storage for 30 days of continuous recording.
To maximize recording time, footage is automatically degraded to regular HD if meaningful activity is not detected. For customers with longer retention requirements, Verkada offers many customized solutions.
Unmatched Picture Quality (Even At Night)
3-megapixel resolution. Wide Dynamic Range. 8 infrared illuminators for night vision.
Verkada cameras record at 3 megapixels, providing 50% more detail than 1080p full HD. They also utilize a broad color range and WDR to maximize clarity throughout the entire image.
Once connected, Verkada cameras automatically tune image parameters like exposure, iris, shutter speed, brightness, contrast, saturation, sharpening, tint, and temperature. They're continually adjusted by Verkada's algorithms to ensure optimal image quality and clarity.
Every camera is also equipped with 8 infrared illuminators and a 1/2.8" Progressive CMOS sensor to enable unparalleled low-light camera performance- even in the dark. The comparison picture below shows the difference.
Powerful Access Controls
Granular controls for user, site, and organization. Time restricted access. Detailed access logs.
Command- Verkada's secure web-based application- empowers administrators to easily and effectively manage access rights for their entire organization. Effortlessly restrict user access to an individual camera or location, and apply user roles to establish an access rights regime that fits your organization's needs.
Command also makes it easy to securely share video footage with approved third parties, such as law enforcement and legal professionals. You can easily export footage or grant real-time access via SMS. This is a potentially life-saving feature during instances of active threats and prolonged security breaches.
Efficient Bandwidth Usage
Works even on LTE connections. Doesn't require its own high-speed network. Consumes as little as 20 kbit/s per camera in low-bandwidth mode.
Compared to standard IP security cameras, which upload video footage continuously to the cloud, Verkada cameras have a reduced impact on the local area network. This means Verkada cameras work even in areas where limited internet connectivity prevents other manufacturer's cameras from operating.
2 redundant failsafe firmware partitions. Camera records even in the event of network outage. Tamper detection and QA alerts. Optional cloud-backup storage available.
Verkada cameras are engineered with cutting-edge technology and industrial-grade materials. They can perform everywhere and are built to last. Uptime and reliability are ensured thanks to quality assurance alerts and tamper detection notifications generated automatically by Verkada's software.
Video Analytics and Activity-Based Indexing
Intelligent activity-based indexing and search. Activity-based video analytics. Map view for easy management. Continuous updates and added features.
Verkada's cleverly designed activity-based indexing automatically scans footage and logs periods when activity occurs. Using the web interface, it's easy to search any camera's historical footage by selecting the areas of interest within the frame. Verkada then automatically surfaces all footage where motion occurred in these areas of the grid.
You can also use Verkada's map and test-based search features to quickly navigate multi-site deployments comprising many cameras.
Automatic Updates and Upgrades
Automated firmware and software updates. Access to all new features and functionality. No more delayed security patch updates.
Say goodbye to legacy systems burdened by outdated firmware and security vulnerabilities. Verkada cameras automatically receive software updates and upgrades. These include the latest security enhancements as well as new features and functionality.
Verkada's secure, automated approach ensures seamless delivery of updates without interrupting camera operability. This means its easy for administrators to stay ahead of emerging security threats while gaining access to all the latest features and industry-leading security camera capabilities.
