Verkada - This Is The Future Everyone...

Think everyone is missing the point.

I learned about Verkada from one of our ACS customers.

They are a well to do town with a smart IT director. He had EXACQ in some schools that were installed as part of renovations/construction work. He wanted to add cameras here and there but didn't want to keep going down the Tyco road so..

He had found a reseller that was a managed services IT company that was quoting him Verkada just above dealer cost. Not MSRP as represented on their web site.

The IT guy was buying the cameras and was in love with the five year software licenses. So that is the camera with 30 days of storage - cloud backup and all in 5 year contract. So even at list he is $1,600 for an interior camera and he is good for five years.

He had so many existing data drops in various locations - he was using those to support these cameras.

No need for a pesky security integration company...hah.

I tried...

I said what if the WAN goes down - no big deal he said, cameras still record...

I said what if Verkada goes out of business.. - not a big concern...

I suggested the software sucked - but then I got a demo of it - it doesn't...

I said yeah what about latency... well it wasn't that bad...

I said what about smearing and quality issues - in demo it wasn't that bad and only had intermittently...

This is the future everyone...
