Modern, Secure Architecture

In Focus

  • No NVR
  • No insecure ports
  • Full HTTPS/SSL encryption

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 our system 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 our 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

Optimal Video Retention—30 Days & Counting...

In Focus

  • Storage for 30 days of continuous recording
  • Data at rest encrypted with 128-bit AES encryption
  • 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 securely uploaded and made readily accessible to authorized users within Command, Verkada’s secure web application. Full HD video footage is stored on the camera, which has enough 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 a number of options.

Optimal Video Retention—30 Days & Counting...

In Focus

  • 3-megapixel resolution
  • Wide Dynamic Range (WDR)
  • 8 infrared illuminators for night vision

Unmatched Picture Quality—Even at Night

Verkada cameras record at 3 megapixels, providing 50% more detail than 1080p full HD. We also utilize a broad color gamut and wide dynamic range (WDR) to maximize clarity throughout the entire image.

Once connected, our 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 8 infrared illuminators and a 1/2.8’’ Progressive CMOS sensor, a combination that enables unparalleled low-light camera performance—even in the dark of night.

Unmatched Picture Quality—Even at Night

Power Access Controls & Secure Remote Access

In Focus

  • 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. Need to grant a new regional manager access to 5 office locations? Verkada makes it straightforward and painless.

Our software also makes it easy to securely share video footage with approved third parties, such as law enforcement and legal professionals. You can export footage or easily grant expiration-dated access by inviting these partners to your secure account. With Verkada, you can even remotely share a camera’s live feed in real time via SMS—a potentially life-saving feature during instances of active threats and prolonged security breaches.

Power Access Controls & Secure Remote Access

Won't Kill Your Bandwidth

In Focus

  • 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 typical IP security cameras, which upload video footage continuously to the cloud, Verkada cameras have a reduced impact on the local area network. Result: Verkada cameras work even in areas where limited internet connectivity prevents cameras from other manufacturers from operating.

Won't Kill Your Bandwidth

2 Contact Verkada Sales to learn more.
* Multiple simultaneous viewers do not increase local area network (LAN) bandwidth use from the camera — viewers securely access the video after it is proxied through Verkada Command’s cloud service.

Built Tough, With Backup For The Backup

In Focus

  • 2 redundant, failsafe firmware partitions
  • Camera records even in the event of network outage
  • Tamper detection & QA alerts
  • Optional cloud-backup storage available for added redundancy

Engineered with cutting-edge technology and industrial-grade materials, Verkada cameras are built to perform everywhere—and built to last. The Dome Series meet certification requirements for vandal resistance. Uptime and reliability are ensured thanks to quality assurance (QA) alerts and tamper detection notifications, which are generated automatically by Verkada’s software.

To ensure 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 ensure that the camera remains 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 speedier 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 even in the event of a network outage. Paired with a continuous power solution, Verkada cameras will continue to reliably record even in the event of grid-power loss.

Built Tough, With Backup For The Backup

Video Analytics & Activity-Based Indexing

In Focus

  • Intelligent activity-based indexing & search
  • Activity-based video analyitcs
  • Map view for easy management

Thanks to cleverly designed activity-based indexing, Verkada’s software automatically scans footage and logs periods when activity occurred. Using the web interface, it’s easy to search a camera’s historical footage by selecting areas of interest within its frame. Verkada then automatically surfaces all footage where motion occurred in these areas of the grid. Find the clip you’re looking for and easily export and share. You can also use Verkada’s map- and text-based search features to quickly navigate multi-site deployments comprising many cameras.

Video Analytics & Activity-Based Indexing

Always Up To Date, Always Ahead

In Focus

  • Automated firmware and software updates
  • Access to all new features and functionality
  • No more delayed security patch updates

Say goodbye to legacy systems beset by outdated firmware and security vulnerabilities. Verkada cameras automatically receive software updates and upgrades. These updates—which include the latest security enhancements as well as new features and functionality—are made available to all Verkada software license holders via periodic scheduled maintenance windows.

Our secure, automated approach ensures seamless delivery of updates without interrupting camera operability. Result: it’s easy for administrators to stay ahead of emerging security threats while gaining access to all the latest features and industry-leading security camera capabilities.
