Manage school security from anywhere

No matter where you are, quickly detect and respond to incidents on campus.

  • Find, save, and share footage on-the-go.

  • Share live camera feeds with local authorities in seconds.

Prevent student vaping

Receive real-time alerts via SMS and email when smoking or vaping is detected in areas such as bathrooms and locker rooms. Pair sensors with video security to gain additional context.

Lockdown doors in seconds

Create custom lockdown scenarios to ensure your environment has the right response plan. Trigger lockdowns from a panic button, Verkada Command, or the Verkada Pass app — while still allowing first responders access.

Welcome, screen and view visitors on campus

Make visitor management simple and secure. With Guest, you can easily screen visitors, print photo badges and view visitor footage — all from a single pane of glass.

Protect student privacy

Monitor school premises in a privacy-sensitive way by blurring the faces detected in your live streams. Unblur faces at a moment’s notice when incidents occur.

Accelerate emergency response

Respond quickly to threats with custom alerts and tools — including wireless panic buttons. When an alarm is raised, immediately take action or directly contact emergency services.

One platform to centralize school security

Easily monitor, detect and respond to incidents on campus by centralizing security to one easy-to-use platform.
