Enterprise Security and IT teams are increasingly being asked to do more with less. They are tasked with extending security to more and more locations and protecting against new threats while managing tighter budgets and fewer on-site resources. These teams need solutions that allow them to protect their people and assets while reducing the cost and headache of managing devices and users across dozens, if not hundreds of locations worldwide.
That’s why we’re excited to announce our latest generation of products that deliver scalable, integrated, and easy-to-use solutions for physical security. These announcements include the general availability of the new:
Low bandwidth mode to help customers manage constrained sites
These new products help us deliver even more value to enterprise customers by providing simplicity to large-scale deployments, reducing IT overhead, and simplifying installation and management.
Increase Coverage with the all-new Multisensor Camera
The newest addition to our camera portfolio – the CH52-E multisensor camera – helps our customers increase coverage and improve image quality in high traffic areas. With four independent 5MP image sensors, the Verkada multisensor camera offers broad coverage with incredible image quality. Now, Verkada customers benefit from the coverage of a fisheye camera and the image crispness and clarity of a dome camera – brought together in a single, sleek package.
“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.”
Improve Air Quality Monitoring with the new SV20 Series
We are introducing an entirely new generation of air quality sensors – the SV20 series – that give customers the ability to choose the right sensor for their specific use case.
The SV21, which includes 4 onboard sensors, is great for managing air quality essentials like temperature, humidity and CO2 in offices, classrooms, or server closets.
The SV23, which includes 10 onboard sensors - including vape, TVOC, AQI, and others- is designed for vape detection and deployments in schools.
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 comprehensive 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.”
Support 4X more doors with the new 16 Door Controller
The latest addition to Verkada’s lineup of door controllers – the AC62 – allows customers to seamlessly control access to 16 doors on one controller from Verkada Command, our simplified cloud-based platform. Now, Verkada doors can more easily be used in larger enterprise-scale deployments that include high door densities. Thoughtfully designed from the ground up, the AC62 includes a compact form factor and intuitive components, such as detachable wiring terminals and mounting brackets to simplify installation and minimize the hardware footprint.
Support bandwidth-constrained sites with Low Bandwidth Mode
Scaling deployments can be difficult for bandwidth-constrained enterprise customers. Verkada’s hybrid-cloud solution has addressed this challenge with cameras that require bandwidth as low as 20-50kbps, but certain customers with distributed sites in remote locations, mobile deployments or high camera density still contend with extreme bandwidth constraints. To unlock our capabilities at scale for these customers, we’re 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, the video will stream in standard quality, cloud backup and timelapse will be disabled, and thumbnail frequency will be reduced. This allows bandwidth-constrained customers to significantly increase the size of their deployments while maintaining the uptime of their cameras – all while running other business-critical applications.
Growing with our customers
Verkada is driving more efficiency for customers with these enhancements to make the platform easier to use and scale. For more information about Verkada’s product announcements, watch our 2022 Product Keynote.
