Positive Reviews about Verkada

“Verkada has a ton of built-in easy-to-use features that makes surveillance simple. I like that I can create unique users for each team member” Source: G2 Crowd

“Reliant on local bandwidth for review, if you have poor service, reviews of streams can be slowed down. Caution during deployment, be sure to take into account your network switches capability to support and how much per else you can over run the power capacity.”

cable gland assembly 1
To seal the Ethernet cable, disassemble the cable gland and feed the Ethernet cable through the baseplate through-hole.

  • cable assembly 1

    1. Place the rubber seal around the cable. Push the plastic collar firmly over the rubber seal until it snaps into position.

  • cable assembly 2

    2. Firmly insert the seal and collar assembly into the pass-through until it is secured in position.

  • cable assembly 3

    3. Place the metal nut over the rubber seal and engage the threads on the pass-through.

  • cable assembly 4

    4. Gently tighten down the metal nut by hand. You should still be able to move the cable back and forth through the gland, but have enough resistance for it to remain in place.


assembly 3
Gently pull the cable through the through-hole so it has some slack, but will not interfere with the top cover.
assembly 4
Firmly tighten using the provided Cable gland wrench.
assembly 5
Pulling the Ethernet cable too tight will strain the cable which may impact data performance.
assembly 6
Too much slack in the Ethernet cable may create top cover installation issues.

Mount

  • Mount the camera on a wall or ceiling. Try to keep the camera 8 to 10 feet above the ground.
  • For best night vision, avoid overhangs or obstructions. These may reflect the camera’s IR illumination and reduce the image clarity in night mode.
  • Use the provided T10 security Torx security screwdriver to loosen the screws and lift the cover. To remove the mount plate, loosen the mount plate screws and twist the camera counter-clockwise. Lift the camera vertically off the base plate and set aside.
  • Use the provided mounting template to mark wall mount holes. For a junction box mount, use the mounting template to determine the correct hole pattern.
  • For a solid material like wood or metal, drill 1/8 inch pilot holes. Drive mounting screws directly into the pilot holes.
  • For drywall, drill 1/4 inch holes. Insert plastic anchors into holes and drive mounting screws into anchors.
  • To secure the camera, place it over the mount plate screws and twist counter-clockwise. Tighten the mount plate screws with a Phillips screwdriver.
