Verkada Coronavirus Response: Free Temp Systems For Government and Health Care

By John Honovich and Sean Patton, Published on Apr 07, 2020

Verkada has built a reputation on giving away things for free - free Yeti Tumblers, free trial cameras and now free temporary systems for government and health care users during coronavirus.

Inside this note, we examine:

  • How the program works
  • Why it builds on their competitive positioning
  • Why it can hurt integrators and rival manufacturers
  • How this leverages their massive funding
  • How it may help Verkada long-term
