Verkada New Product Line Includes Multisensor Camera, Air Quality Sensors
The new line, which also includes a 16-door access controller and low-bandwidth mode, aims to reduce IT overhead and simplify installation.
Verkada, a cloud-based building security systems provider, announces the availability of new products and solutions to drive scale and simplicity for the enterprise.
The products include a new multisensor camera, a new line of air quality sensors, a new 16-door access controller, and low-bandwidth mode. The solutions reduce IT overhead and simplify installation and management, the company says.
“Enterprises are looking for better ways to increase visibility and control across all of their distributed facilities,” said Brandon Davito, Vice President of Product and Operations at Verkada. “Delivering easy-to-use solutions that help enterprises 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 run, choose the right air quality sensor for their needs, and reduce their bandwidth consumption in network-constrained locations.”
New Multisensor Camera Offers Increased Coverage
The newest addition to Verkada’s camera portfolio, the CH52-E multisensor camera, has four independent image sensors to offer comprehensive coverage with pin-sharp image detail. Verkada customers benefit from the coverage of a fisheye camera and the image crispness of a dome camera, brought together in a single package, the company says.
“The multisensor is the camera we have been looking for,” says Patrick Allen, Director of Network Services from Dairy Farmers of America. “Now, I can get complete coverage in places like warehouses, parking lots, and corners of key facilities – all with a simple and quick installation.”
New SV20 Series Offers Improved Air Quality Monitoring
- The SV21, which includes four onboard sensors, is ideal for managing air quality essentials like temperature, humidity, and CO2 in offices, classrooms, or server closets.
- The SV23, which offers 10 onboard sensors – including vape, TVOC, AQI, and others – is designed for vape detection and deployments in schools.
- The SV25 provides 14 unique sensor readings. With sensors to measure formaldehyde, carbon monoxide, and barometric pressure, among others, the SV25 provides an air quality monitoring solution for indoor environments.
“Working in a hybrid environment, it’s important for our Chegg team to have the ability to remotely monitor air quality and temperature of our global offices,” said Brian McGuiness, Vice President of IT Operations at Chegg. “The SV20 Series air quality sensors added a slew of new features that help us keep an eye on Chegg’s global offices via an integrated dashboard accessible from our laptops or mobile devices.”
New 16-Door Access Controller Supports 4x More Doors
The latest addition to Verkada’s lineup of door controllers – the AC62 – allows customers to control access to 16 doors on one controller from Verkada Command, its cloud-based platform. Verkada doors can more easily be used in larger enterprise-scale deployments that include high door densities.
The AC62 design includes a compact form factor and intuitive components, such as detachable wiring terminals and mounting brackets to simplify installation and minimize the hardware footprint.
Low-Bandwidth Mode Supports Bandwidth-Constrained Sites
Verkada’s hybrid-cloud solution has addressed the challenge of scaling deployments for bandwidth-constrained enterprise customers with cameras that require bandwidth as low as 20-50kbps. The company is now offering a new Low Bandwidth Mode to enable customers to cap bandwidth consumption and stay within their bandwidth limits.
With this toggle feature enabled for specific cameras, the resting bandwidth is reduced by up to 75% (when no video is played) and streaming bandwidth by up to 33%. To support this lower bandwidth when Low Bandwidth Mode is toggled on, video will stream in standard quality, cloud backup and timelapse will be disabled, and thumbnail frequency will be reduced.
