Verkada introduces new multi-sensor camera, air quality sensors and door controller
In addition to the new enterprise solutions, Verkada also unveiled a new Low Bandwidth Mode to allow customers to limit bandwidth consumption and stay within their limits.
SAN MATEO, Calif. – Verkada, a developer of cloud-managed enterprise security and management solutions, announced the availability of new products and solutions to drive scale and simplicity for the enterprise, including a new multi-sensor camera, a new range of air quality sensors, a new 16-door access controller and a low-bandwidth mode.
The company says these new solutions were developed to deliver more value to customers by reducing IT costs and simplifying installation and management.
“Enterprises are looking for better ways to increase visibility and control across their distributed facilities,” said Brandon Davito, vice president of products and operations at Verkada. “Providing 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, choose the right air quality sensor for their needs, and reduce their bandwidth consumption in places where the network is limited.
Multi-sensor camera headlines new enterprise security products
The newest addition to Verkada’s camera portfolio is the CH52-E multi-sensor camera. Verkada points out that this product is its first multi-sensor solution and helps customers increase security coverage in the most efficient way.
With four independent image sensors, the Verkada CH52-E multi-sensor camera provides full coverage with high-level image detail. Today, Verkada boasts that its customers can now benefit from the coverage of a fisheye camera and the image sharpness of a dome camera, all in one package.
Another of Verkada’s new enterprise security solutions is the company’s SV20 series. Describing the product range, Verkada explains the different models:
The SV21 includes four built-in sensors and offers the ability to manage essential air quality elements like temperature, humidity and CO2 in offices, classrooms or server cabinets.
The SV23 features 10 onboard sensors, including vape, TVOC, AQI and others. Verkada states that the SV23 is designed for vape detection and school deployments.
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 complete air quality monitoring solution for indoor environments.
Additionally, other security enterprise products recently launched by the company include the AC62 door controller, which is said to offer the ability to provide access control for up to 16 doors from a single controller. . The AC62 features a compact form factor and intuitive components, such as removable wiring terminals and mounting brackets to simplify installation and minimize hardware footprint, according to the company.
Bolstering the enterprise security capabilities of its product line and helping to make the products as efficient as possible, Verkada points out that its hybrid cloud solution has overcome the bandwidth challenge with cameras that require such low bandwidth. than 20 to 50 kbps.
Verkada admits that some customers with distributed sites in remote locations, mobile deployments, or high camera density still face extreme bandwidth constraints. To support large-scale low-bandwidth capabilities for these customers, Verkada offers a new low-bandwidth mode to allow customers to throttle bandwidth consumption and stay within their bandwidth limits.
Verkada claims that with Low Bandwidth Mode enabled for specific cameras, idle bandwidth is reduced by up to 75% (when no video is playing) and streaming bandwidth by up to 33%. To support this lower bandwidth when Low Bandwidth Mode is enabled, video will stream at standard quality with Cloud Save and Timelapse disabled, and the thumbnail frequency will be reduced.
This allows bandwidth-constrained customers to increase the size of their deployments while maintaining the availability of their cameras, while running other business-critical applications.
