Verkada Reviews from the Manufacturing and Production Plants
Real-Time Environmental Monitoring with Custom Alerts“Temperature and relative humidity are also critical to this operation. I have to maintain 55% plus or minus 1% or less relative humidity. If we hit 58%, we start running into problems with our dry ingredients. They start clumping and plugging machines up; it gets ugly pretty quickly. With sensors, I’m able to detect irregularities before it becomes a problem.”

Remotely Manage Inventory with Granular Viewing Permissions“Verkada has helped us streamline inventory management. Our vendors and site managers have access to specific cameras, so they can sign into Command and view live feeds. If stock is low, they know right away and ship it out, they no longer need to call in and ask.”

Support Employee Safety Initiatives, Conduct, and Training“The new safety efforts we’ve put into place have made a noticeable difference across my team. Leadership is glad we’re able to more reliably monitor workplace conduct to ensure that unsafe behaviors are corrected. We’re [also] able to be creative in how we’re using video security. For example, when my team conducts pressurized tests for some of our hoses, they’re able to stay on the other side of the wall and watch what’s happening from a safe distance. The live footage gives them the ability to confirm whether a hose is entirely depressurized before re-entering to disassemble the test.”

Monitor Production from Mobile or Web“With Verkada, not only do we see what’s going on at a high-level, we’re able to zoom into parts of the production line to inspect the builds. Our team can do this from virtually anywhere on their smartphones or desktop—it’s really allowed us to maintain our high bar for quality.”

Durable Hardware with Industry-Leading 10-Year Warranty“It was a priority for us to make sure the product is durable and a long-lasting solution we can stick with. We tested the Verkada cameras in our production areas in close proximity to 1400 degree ovens, and they were able to withstand the extreme test environments we put them through.”

Intuitive User Platform with Role-Based Access”Our supervisors each have their own set of personalized permissions to access cameras for their respective areas. If they’re mobile, they’re able to view them from their phones. There was no learning curve to start using Command. We had a demo in the office, I sent our users a link to their accounts, and that was it.”

Evolving Feature Sets and Future-Proof Technology“In the period of time that I’ve used Verkada, I’ve seen numerous new additions to the technology stack. People Analytics, Vehicle Search, and Crowd Alerts; all of these features make it easier for me to conduct investigations and reduce response time. I get all the things I wished I had with my old system–offline alerts, easy remote access, and the ability to call an intelligent, technical expert and get the help I need.”

24/7 Coverage with System Health Alerts“Our manufacturing warehouse and office space is easily over 100,000 square feet. It’s a large area to cover, but Verkada’s solution is straightforward and incredibly easy to get up and running. Knowing that I’m notified immediately if a camera experiences downtime gives me a high level of confidence that the system is always working as it should be.”

Simple to Deploy and Provision Users“Verkada was a no-brainer for us — it’s perfect for keeping tabs on our operations across multiple locations. Altogether, it took us 30 minutes to install the cameras and grant access to administrative staff. I couldn’t have imagined a more seamless deployment experience."

Enhance Workplace Safety and Peace of Mind“Verkada allows our IT team the ability to provide high-quality footage to stakeholders and necessary authorities while cutting response time down from days to minutes. With our operations spanning across a number of states and businesses, it is critical that we have a security system that is not only simple to deploy and use, but also one that we can trust. Since moving to Verkada, my team, as well as the greater leadership, feel confident that our concerns with video security are nothing but a thing of the past.”
