Steps to enable audio so you can record sound

Most Verkada cameras come equipped with an onboard microphone, which is disabled by default. Users with admin permissions can enable audio. When enabled, audio will be available for live streaming and historical footage going forward.

Please note: After enabling audio, you may need to refresh your page to see the unmute icon appear. You may need to wait 10-15 minutes for new historical footage to contain audio.

Please note: Audio is not available on the D50, D80, CH52-E, Bullet Series, and CM41-S.
