Verkada Falsely Claims "First Native Cloud-based Access Control and Video Security Solution"

By: Sean Patton, Published on Jun 18, 2020

Verkada's false claims continue, this time to be the first native cloud-based access and video solution.

There are a number of manufacturers that already offer native cloud-based access control and video systems, so why make this claim?

Verkada has a history of repeatedly making false claims, about competitors and its performance:

In this report, we examine Verkada's claim here, provide feedback from Verkada, review funding to develop an access system, and challenges and opportunities for Verkada selling access.

[Note: We are buying a Verkada access control to test the solution and will release a test report in the near future]
