Verkada makes managing your licenses easy.  This document will explain how Command calculates license renewal dates and how we work with customers to manage renewals.

Command Licenses

Each device in Command requires a license.  Licenses are typically purchased with a camera, but may also be purchased separately from cameras, such as for a license renewal.  Each Organization must purchase at least as many licenses as the number of cameras in your Organization in Command.  

Command licenses are purchased for different durations - 1, 3, 5, or 10 years.  The “clock” for a license starts counting down upon purchase.  As a cloud-connected product, valid Command licenses are required for any Verkada camera to function.

License expiration dates

Licenses within Command are averaged to calculate a single co-terminated Renewal Date. This date is calculated as the weighted average of the license durations across all cameras in an Organization.
