Verkada began as an innovative approach to video security, helping organisations around the world protect their people and assets from harm.
As Verkada has expanded, organisations across Europe have been able to leverage the additional power of Verkada’s access control, environmental sensors, and visitor management solutions to improve security and building management.
Built-in 24/7 professional monitoring provided by trained operators
Verkada’s Alarms family includes wired and wireless intrusion sensors, an innovative communication console, wireless panic buttons, and 24/7 professional monitoring.
Verkada’s Alarm console
Today, with the addition of Verkada’s Alarm solution, we’re excited to announce that the entire Verkada platform is now available in the United Kingdom and across Europe. From single-site retailers to major hospitals, organisations in these countries are now able to leverage the power of the complete Verkada platform.
Verkada Alarms: Cloud-Managed Intrusion Detection
Verkada Alarms is a suite of cloud-managed intrusion sensors and professional monitoring that makes it easier for organisations to detect, verify, and respond to threats in real-time.
Like all Verkada products, Alarms is built on top of Command, our web-based platform that lets organisations easily manage physical security across every location. Sites and users can be configured in minutes, with no service fees for setup or configuration changes. Users can see at a glance which sites are armed or disarmed, any recent incidents, and the status of every Alarm device.
Sites can be armed or disarmed with a single click, and admins can customise an unlimited list of contacts that should be notified in case of emergency.
24/7 Peace of Mind
Real-time visual context can be enormously helpful when an alarm is triggered and an incident is potentially in progress.
Verkada Alarms includes 24/7 professional monitoring with unlimited video verification bundled into the Alarms licence. When an alarm is triggered, organisations can choose to have video footage of the event sent to a team of trained security experts standing by to review and respond to the incident.
If there is no visible threat, agents will dismiss the event, helping organisations avoid false alarms. If agents determine the threat to be legitimate, they will immediately notify an organisation’s pre-selected contact list via phone, SMS, or email.
In the United Kingdom and Ireland, agents are also able to directly contact emergency services if there is a visible threat in progress, as well as send police live video links to provide crucial context into what is happening on-site.
