Verkada Access Control Tested

By: Brian Rhodes, Published on Sep 09, 2020

Verkada raised $80 million earlier in 2020, expanding from video into access control. They are fast-growing in video but how will they do in access?

IPVM Image

We bought and tested Verkada's cloud-based access platform to see how it stacks up against competitors in the security space.

In this report, we cover these findings and more:

  • 6 key strengths and 6 key weaknesses
  • 10 images and 4 videos showing physical build details of the controller, installation of wired devices, overview of the app, and management interface.
  • Test details of remote access control via Verkada's Pass App
  • Multiple sections and images explaining how the cloud management portal works
  • Price and features versus other cloud-based access systems

Inside, we detail our findings on how well the system operates, where it is weak, and how it compares to other cloud offerings.
