Announcing Verkada’s Environmental Sensor, Adding New Insights to Your Organization
Jake StauchSep 15, 2020
Today, we’re excited to introduce the newest addition to our line of cloud-based security products with the SV11 Environmental Sensor — an all-in-one sensor for monitoring environmental changes across your facilities.
Native Video Integration
When coupled with nearby cameras, the SV11 gives administrators a full view of what is happening within the facilities they manage. An SV11 can be paired with a camera in a single click within the Command platform, giving powerful context to sensor data.
Linked cameras can be in the same location as the sensor, or for more private areas such as bathrooms or locker rooms, users can use cameras facing the entrances/exits.
One Device, Infinite Possibilities
From monitoring air quality in manufacturing facilities to detecting temperature fluctuations in server closets, the SV11 offers a new kind of visibility and insight into your physical space.
Each SV11 features a collection of powerful embedded sensors, simultaneously measuring changes happening in real-time. This includes:
Air Quality Index (AQI)
Particulate Matter 2.5 (PM 2.5)
Total Volatile Organic Compounds (TVOCs)
Vaping and Smoking
Below, we show how an alert that was received for high TVOC levels can be viewed. As we click into the event, we can see this elevated state of TVOC was triggered by cleaning products used during scheduled cleaning of the restroom area.
Users can set customized thresholds for each sensor feed and configure the recipients and scheduling of real-time alerts via SMS and/or email.
The SV11 also features built-in detection of smoking or vaping activity. Using an array of onboard sensors, the SV11 analyzes the air for environmental signatures of smoking or vaping. Verkada’s Vape Index gives schools and other smoke-free facilities the tools to monitor and investigate these events.
The SV11 is now available for purchase and 30-day trial. For more information, please contact [email protected].
