In most cases, you'll want to install your camera with a normal orientation so that the video stream in Command appears as you'd expect. Some install locations may benefit from being installed in a non-standard orientation to maximize the field of view.

For example: a camera may be installed at 90 degrees to capture a full view of a long hallway or stairwell.

In these cases, you'll want to rotate the orientation of your camera in Command. Here's how:

1. Go to Devices on the left menu and choose the camera you'd like to rotate.

2. Click the Camera's video feed on the right

3. Click the Info button on the right side of the screen.

4. Click Orientation to pull up the orientation dialog box.

5. Select the desired orientation and save.

Verkada Fisheye Mode

The D80 and CF81-E both support the following Fisheye Modes:

  • 180 Panoramic - Provides a 180-degree panoramic view which is best when the camera is wall mounted.

  • Four-Way Split - Splits out the panoramic view into 4 sections for a 360-degree view used mainly when the camera is ceiling mounted.

Note: The CF81-E also supports Pan/Tilt/Zoom (ePTZ) mode.

To change the fisheye mode follow the steps below:

1. From the camera's info page, select Fisheye Mode.

2. From the dialog box, select the desired mode and save. The camera will reboot to implement this change.


Enabling Auto Leveling for the Verkada D40

The Verkada D40 uses the accelerometer, which incorporates the force of gravity and any other potential position-altering effects, to determine the physical orientation of the camera when it’s installed on a wall.

The camera will be able to automatically rotate the image to compensate for whatever degree of rotation is necessary, eliminating the need to make physical adjustments to the mounting of the camera.

Enable Auto-Leveling

1. Select the camera and navigate to the INFO page.

2. Select Orientation.

3. Check the box for Auto-Level and save. After a few seconds, the camera will level the image.

Here is an example of an image before and after Auto-Leveling is enabled.
