Professional Monitoring

Alarm and video monitoring from a team of trained virtual guards who can verify and respond to threats for you.

24/7 Peace of Mind

Security is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Detect intruders using cameras, intrusion sensors, or both, and choose the level of professional monitoring you need for your organization.

  • Standalone Intrusion Sensors

    A modern intrusion system with built-in alarm monitoring that lets you view and manage events, devices, and users from anywhere.

  • Pair Cameras and Intrusion Sensors

    Add intrusion sensors alongside cameras for maximum protection. Agents can video-verify events to screen out false alarms and help you get priority police response.

  • Use Cameras to Detect Intruders

    Monitored cameras act as a complete alarm system, helping you increase security while reducing the need for in-person guards.

How Professional Monitoring Works

Trained agents can verify and respond to threats for you, or simply let you know that unusual activity was detected.

Upgrade to a Modern Alarm System

Forget what you know and dislike about traditional alarm systems. Verkada’s cloud-managed intrusion sensors and built-in professional monitoring give you better visibility and control over what’s happening on your property. View alarm details, share incident reports, manage users, and more from a single dashboard.

Increase Security with Video-Verified Intrusion Sensors

Pair intrusion sensors with nearby cameras to get extra protection without the false alarms. Monitoring agents will only escalate if they see a person present, helping you get priority police response while avoiding false alarm fines.

Turn Your Cameras into a Monitored Alarm System

Use cameras to detect people on your property after hours, and get a team of monitoring agents to verify and respond on your behalf.

Still using in-person guards? Verkada can reduce how many you need by improving visibility, screening out false alarms, and taking immediate action, like calling the police or scaring off the intruder.
