We use Verkada for security and environmental sensing. We needed an easy way to detect motion and be able to remotely monitor the school. Also, with environmental sensing, we can monitor things like air quality and vape usage.
  • Video searching
  • Clip download and retention
  • Alerts
  • Vape sensing archive downloads don't tie in with contextual camera.
They need to be powered where there is ethernet. This makes it hard for areas outside in larger fields and such (that are not tied to that). But for a hard-wired business, that wants to do away from home run copper back to the on-prem box, this is a great alternative.
  • Ease of installation
  • Video retention
  • Alerts
  • It was initially cheaper to get the system install.
  • Time savings for myself has paid over ten times it's worth.
  • All positive ROI.
We looked at Meraki/Cisco cameras, as well as various on-prem servers. Nothing really stacked up when it came to features, cost, and ease of use. Meraki/Cisco came the closest but the licensing was not ideal.
