Verkada offers simplicity and added protection to organizations looking to modernize their approach to physical security. Verkada eliminates the need for local servers, firewall equipment and network video recorders (NVRs), reducing complexity and lowering operating costs. In place of the NVR, each Verkada camera stores video footage on industrial-grade, solid-state storage. This fully encrypted and distributed design offers a number of unique benefits. It improves security by doing away with single points of failure and unencrypted NVRs. It minimizes bandwidth consumption by avoiding continuous video upload. And it greatly reduces the cost and complexity of extending the system—simply install new cameras, with no additional hardware equipment required. Paired with Verkada’s intuitive, web-based software, the cameras come with powerful capabilities.
It’s easy to grant, edit and revoke access permissions for any user—by camera, site or organization. Activity-based indexing and intelligent search features automatically identify incidents, reducing hassle and speeding response times. Verkada even makes it possible to share real-time camera feeds via SMS. And because the cameras are web managed, software updates and upgrades occur automatically. Result: Verkada cameras are always up to date and secure.
OVERVIEW PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS: ✓ Built with wall-to-wall encryption ✓ Up to 120 days of retained video ✓ Live stream access ✓ Works even on LTE ✓ Activity-based indexing and search ✓ Live video access ✓ No extra plugins or additional hardware required
Verkada eliminates local servers and NVRs, resulting in a system architecture that is simpler, more secure, and easier to operate and manage. Open ports—which introduce security vulnerabilities in traditional camera systems—are also omitted from the system’s design. Out of the box, Verkada cameras are automatically self-firewalled. This safety layer prevents unauthenticated computers on the network from sending malware packets to the camera—even in the event that an attacker or virus is present on the same physical network. Each camera communicates only via encrypted, outbound connections, underpinning an efficient and secure architecture.
Video footage that’s stored on each camera is encrypted with public key infrastructure (PKI), which prevents unauthorized access—even in the unlikely event that the camera itself falls into the wrong hands. Verkada software is developed by U.S.-based engineers. As part of a rigorous software development lifecycle, all firmware is cryptographically signed by Verkada to ensure that only authentic firmware can be loaded onto each camera.
Verkada works exclusively with datacenter operators that meet the highest industry standards for security and privacy, including ISO 27001, SSAE16/ISAE 3402 Type II: SOC 2, and SSAE16/ISAE 3402 Type II: SOC 3 certifications. MODERN, SECURE ARCHITECTURE Footage fully encrypted and stored in a distributed fashion in on-camera, solid-storage. Select video metadata and activity triggered footage made available in Command via encrypted connection. Video available for secure management and playback by users authorized via two-factor authentication. IN FOCUS No NVRs No insecure ports Full HTTPs/SSL encryption.
The Verkada D-Series product line includes multiple cameras, which have 3, 5 or 12 MP sensors. In addition to providing a minimum of 50% more detail than 1080 full HD, these cameras utilize a broad color gamut and wide dynamic range (WDR) to maximize clarity throughout the entire image. We also utilize a broad color gamut and wide dynamic range (WDR) to maximize clarity throughout the entire image. Once connected, the cameras automatically tune image parameters: exposure, iris, shutter speed, brightness, contrast, saturation, sharpening, tint and temperature. These parameters are continually adjusted by Verkada’s algorithms, ensuring optimal image clarity. Each camera comes equipped with 7 infrared illuminators and a 1/2.8’’ Progressive CMOS sensor (1/1.7” for D80), a combination that enables unparalleled low-light camera performance—even in the dark of night.

Compared to typical IP security cameras, which upload video footage continuously to the cloud, Verkada cameras have a reduced impact on the local area network. Viewers securely access the video after it is proxied through Verkada Command’s cloud service. Multiple simultaneous viewers do not increase local area network (LAN) bandwidth use from the cameras. Result: Verkada cameras work even in areas where limited internet connectivity prevents cameras from other manufacturers from operating.

All rights reserved. Engineered with cutting-edge technology and industrial-grade materials, Verkada cameras are designed to perform everywhere—and built to last. All D-Series cameras meet IK08 or IK10 certification requirements for vandal resistance. The D50 and D80 also have weatherproof ratings (IP67 and IP66, respectively). Uptime and reliability are ensured with quality assurance (QA) alerts and tamper detection notifications, which are generated automatically by Verkada’s software. To maintain the most secure and reliable deployments, Verkada includes redundant systems throughout each camera’s design. In the unlikely case that a scheduled automatic firmware update fails, for instance, two redundant firmware partitions keep the camera secure and operational. To enable optimal retention and an excellent user experience for administrators, Verkada cameras capture video at two different bitrates—high-definition for retention, and a bitrate optimized for faster applications within Verkada Command. On-camera footage may optionally be fully backed up to encrypted cloud storage. Finally, thanks to its on-camera storage, the Verkada camera will continue to record throughout a network outage. Paired with a continuous power solution, Verkada cameras will continue to reliably record even in the event of grid-power loss.

Using the web interface, it’s easy to search a camera’s historical footage by selecting areas of interest within the frame. Verkada then systematically surfaces all footage in video clips where motion has occurred in the selected area grid. Once you identify the footage you’re looking for, you can easily export the clip as an MP4 or share the link via SMS or email. Verkada’s cameras are constantly evolving. With object detection, you can filter event-motion footage by people or vehicle activity to accelerate incident resolution. Valuable analytics on the number of people and vehicles are available at any time. Cameras also optimize bandwidth usage with people and vehicle activity in mind. Finally, notifications can be configured to alert you when people or vehicles are detected, limiting false positive alerts from non-human activity.
