Verkada releases regular updates to its firmware. These updates enhance security and functionality, and they are included at no cost as part of your cloud service license. 

Scheduling firmware updates

Firmware is pushed automatically, no action is required to receive firmware updates.

Automatic failover

To ensure failsafe updates, each Verkada camera is equipped with a dual-partition firmware bank. In the unusual event that a firmware update fails, the camera will automatically failover to the previous version of the firmware.

Does my camera stop recording during firmware updates?

We take extra care to ensure failsafe firmware updates and minimize service interruptions.

Your camera will go offline for a few seconds as the software update process is being finalized. Verkada Support lets your specify when these updates should occur during our regularly scheduled maintenance windows — and each Verkada camera comes with a redundant firmware bank to ensure failsafe updates — so service interruptions are minimal.
