Meet the VX52 Viewing Station, the Next-Generation Live Monitoring Solution
Rahul RamakrishnanAug 08, 2021
Today, we are excited to introduce the VX52 Viewing Station, a dedicated device to quickly and easily view live camera feeds so facilities and security teams never miss out on what’s going on across the enterprise.
Powerful and Compact
The VX52 is our next-generation device that allows 30 camera streams per page (up to ten pages), played back with low-latency, clear quality, and fully customizable layouts to make it as easy as possible to monitor locations. Built on the latest generation of the Apple TV 4K™, the VX52 Viewing Station delivers superior performance in a small form factor that can easily mount behind TVs or monitors.
View with Intelligence using Smart Tiles
The VX52 gives greater insight into your Verkada deployment through Smart Tiles. Smart Tiles pull data from across the platform of Verkada products, helping guards, security operations staff, and administrators gain greater visibility into their facilities. With the launch of the VX52, the following Smart Tiles are options to configure:
Active Area Tile: This tile switches to the Verkada camera in your organization that has the most motion at any given time. By utilizing machine learning on the cameras, the Active Area Tile ensures that viewers don’t miss when and where activity is happening on their grounds.
Access Control Tile: The Access Control Tile overlays a live list of Access events on the camera footage of that event. Door events (opens, Door Held Opens, Door Forced Opens) and badge-ins show in a feed with the corresponding camera footage to easily confirm whether or not there is a situation at the doors.
Sensor Tile: The Sensor Tile shows the current readings of the Verkada sensor deployment to check if the facility is running smoothly at a glance. Each tile is assigned to a specific sensor which can be configured to show any sensor value.
Simple to Manage
The VX52 works just like any other Verkada device in that it can be fully and remotely managed in Command by Organization Admins. The setup process is simple as well — just power it on, connect it to a monitor, and add it to your organization via serial number to get it up and running. Once the cameras, layout, and desired configuration are chosen, the VX52 will start streaming without any interruptions. In the case of a power outage, the VX52 will boot back up to its saved configuration when the power returns without any additional work needed. Furthermore, in the case of an Internet connectivity outage, the VX52 will continue to stream video coming from cameras in local streaming mode.
Supported by Verkada
Just like the rest of the Verkada fleet, the VX52 comes with an industry-leading 10 year warranty, software updates, and product support.
The VX52 is available today. With a list price of just $499 for the hardware and 1, 3, 5, and 10 year license options, the VX52 is the purpose-built solution for security teams. For more information, please reach out to [email protected].
