Verkada advances physical security with more products that drive enterprise scalability and simplicity


SAN MATEO, Calif., November 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Verkada, the leader in cloud-managed enterprise building security and management, today announced the availability of new products and solutions to drive enterprise scalability and simplicity. , including: a new multi-sensor camera, a new range of sensor air quality indicators, a new 16-door access controller and a low-bandwidth mode. These new solutions deliver even more value to customers by reducing IT costs and simplifying installation and management.

“Enterprises are looking for better ways to increase visibility and control across their distributed facilities,” said Brandon Davito, vice president of products and operations at Verkada. “Providing easy-to-use solutions that help businesses manage security at scale is core to Verkada’s mission. Now customers can manage more doors with a single device, increase camera coverage with a single cable, choose the right air quality sensor for their needs and reduce their bandwidth consumption in places where the network is limited.”

Increase coverage with Verkada’s all-new multi-sensor camera

The newest addition to Verkada’s camera portfolio – the CH52-E Multi-Sensor Camera – is Verkada’s first multi-sensor, helping customers increase coverage in the most efficient way. With four independent image sensors, the Verkada CH52-E multi-sensor camera provides complete coverage with razor-sharp image detail. Now, Verkada customers get the coverage of a fisheye camera and the image clarity of a dome camera, all in one sleek package.

“The multisensor is the camera we were looking for,” says patrick allen, director of network services for Dairy Farmers of America. “Now I can get full coverage in places like warehouses, parking lots and the corners of key facilities – all with one quick and easy installation.”

Improve Air Quality Monitoring with Verkada’s New SV20 Series

Verkada introduces a whole new generation of air quality sensors – the SV20 series – each of which has been designed for specific applications and use cases:

  • The SV21, which includes four built-in sensors, is ideal for managing air quality essentials like temperature, humidity and CO2 in offices, classrooms or server cabinets.
  • The SV23, which features 10 onboard sensors – including vape, TVOC, AQI and others – is designed for vape detection and school deployments.
  • The SV25, our most advanced sensor, provides 14 unique sensor readings. With sensors to measure formaldehyde, carbon monoxide, and barometric pressure, among others, the SV25 provides a complete air quality monitoring solution for indoor environments.

“Working in a hybrid environment, it is important for our Chegg team to have the ability to remotely monitor the air quality and temperature of our global offices,” said Brian McGuiness, vice president of IT operations at Chegg. “The SV20 series air quality sensors have added a host of new features that help us keep tabs on Chegg’s global offices via an integrated dashboard accessible from our laptops or mobile devices.”

Supports 4x more doors with Verkada’s new 16-door controller

The latest addition to Verkada’s line of door controllers – the AC62 – allows customers to seamlessly control access to 16 doors on a single controller from Verkada Command, our streamlined cloud-based platform. Now, Verkada doors can be used more easily in enterprise-scale deployments that include high door densities. Carefully designed from the ground up, the AC62 features a compact form factor and intuitive components, such as removable wiring terminals and mounting brackets to simplify installation and minimize hardware footprint.

Support for limited bandwidth sites with the new Low Bandwidth Mode

Scaling deployments can be challenging for enterprise customers with limited bandwidth. Verkada’s hybrid cloud solution has met this challenge with cameras that require bandwidth as low as 20-50kbps, but some customers with distributed sites in remote locations, mobile deployments, or high camera density still struggle. under extreme bandwidth constraints. To unlock our large-scale capabilities for these customers, we are now offering a new Low Bandwidth Mode to allow customers to limit bandwidth consumption and stay within their bandwidth limits.

With this failover feature enabled for specific cameras, idle bandwidth is reduced by up to 75% (when no video is playing) and streaming bandwidth by up to 33%. To support this lower bandwidth when Low Bandwidth Mode is enabled, video will be streamed in standard quality, cloud save and timelapse will be disabled, and thumbnail frequency will be reduced. This allows bandwidth-constrained customers to dramatically increase the size of their deployments while maintaining camera availability while running other business-critical applications.

Grow with our customers

Ultimately, Verkada improves efficiency as its customers scale their businesses with these enhancements and additions to its easy-to-use, cloud-based software platform. For more information on Verkada’s product announcements, visit our blog.
