Verkada Introduces New Multisensor Camera, Air Quality Sensors, Door Controller
In addition to the new enterprise solutions, Verkada also revealed a new Low Bandwidth Mode to enable customers to cap bandwidth consumption and stay within their limits.
SAN MATEO, Calif. — Verkada, a developer of Cloud-managed enterprise security and management solutions, has announced the availability of new products and solutions to drive scale and simplicity for the enterprise, including a new multisensor camera, a new line of air quality sensors, a new 16-door access controller, and low-bandwidth mode.
The company states these new solutions were developed to deliver more value to customers, by reducing IT overhead and simplifying installation and management.
“Enterprises are looking for better ways to increase visibility and control across all of their distributed facilities,” says Brandon Davito, vice president of product and operations at Verkada. “Delivering easy-to-use solutions that help enterprises manage security at scale is core to Verkada’s mission. Now, customers can manage more doors with a single device, increase camera coverage with a single cable run, choose the right air quality sensor for their needs, and reduce their bandwidth consumption in network constrained locations.”
Multisensor Camera Headlines New Enterprise Security Products
The newest addition to Verkada’s camera portfolio is the CH52-E multisensor camera. Verkada points out this product is its first multisensor solution, and it helps customers increase security coverage in the most efficient manner.
With four independent image sensors, the Verkada CH52-E multisensor camera offers comprehensive coverage with high levels image detail. Now, Verkada boasts that its customers can now benefit from the coverage of a fisheye camera and the image crispness of a dome camera all in a single package.
Another of Verkada’s new enterprise security solutions is the company’s SV20 series. Outlining the product line, Verkada explains the different models:
The SV21 includes four onboard sensors, and it provides the ability to manage air quality essentials like temperature, humidity and CO2 in offices, classrooms or server closets.
The SV23 includes 10 onboard sensors including vape, TVOC, AQI, and others. Verkada states the SV23 is designed for vape detection and deployments in schools.
The SV25 provides 14 unique sensor readings. With sensors to measure formaldehyde, carbon monoxide, and barometric pressure, among air quality attributes, the SV25 provides a comprehensive air quality monitoring solution for indoor environments.
Additionally, other newly released security enterprise products from the company include the AC62 door controller, which is said to provide the ability to deliver access control for as many as 16 doors from a single controller. The AC62 features a compact form factor and intuitive components, such as detachable wiring terminals and mounting brackets to simplify installation and minimize the hardware footprint, according to the company.
Reinforcing the enterprise security capabilities of its product line and helping to make the products as efficient as possible, Verkada emphasizes its hybrid-Cloud solution has addressed the challenge of bandwidth with cameras that require bandwidth as low as 20-50kbps.
Verkada admits that certain customers with distributed sites in remote locations, mobile deployments or high camera density still contend with extreme bandwidth constraints. To support low-bandwidth capabilities at scale for these customers Verkada offers a new Low Bandwidth Mode to enable customers to cap bandwidth consumption and stay within their bandwidth limits.
Verkada claims that with the Low Bandwidth Mode enabled for specific cameras, the resting bandwidth is reduced by up to 75% (when no video is played) and streaming bandwidth by up to 33%. To support this lower bandwidth when Low Bandwidth Mode is enabled, video will stream in standard quality with Cloud backup and timelapse disabled, and thumbnail frequency will be reduced.
This allows bandwidth-constrained customers to increase the size of their deployments while maintaining the uptime of their cameras, all while running other business critical applications.
