Verkada makes it easy to keep all of your cameras organized by site within your organization. Users can only see cameras in the sites for which they have been granted permission. This allows you to scope which cameras are accessible to each user or group. Because site permissions are broken down into roles, you also have the ability to specify the type of access each user or group has to the cameras within a site (viewer or admin). Please see the article on user permissions for more information.
