Camera stats can be used to check the following information over a period of time:

  • The volume of motion activity in the frame

  • Camera connectivity

  • Camera uptime

  • Bandwidth consumption

Check camera stats by selecting a live camera stream and navigating to the Stats icon under the live view. The default timeline is 24 hours but it can be changed to a week or month to see stats over a longer period of time.

Motion activity

The Motion timeline shows the volume of motion detected in the frame over a period of time. You can move your cursor over the timeline and see the stats associated with the motion.

Camera connectivity

The online timeline shows the camera's connectivity to the Verkada cloud over a period of time. Blue bars indicate the camera was connected to the Verkada servers while red indicates the camera was lost connectivity to the cloud. Place your cursor over the timeline to see the date, time, and outage duration.

The uptime timeline shows the period of time a camera was powered and recording. Under most circumstances the two charts will be the same, however, if a network interruption is occurring the uptime will remain blue. Significant differences between the uptime and online timelines may indicate a local network issue.

Bandwidth Consumption

Traffic Out and Traffic In show the upload and download bandwidth consumption over a period of time. 

traffic in and traffic out

Traffic Out indicates the camera upload bit rate. The following data contributes to the upload bit rate; thumbnails, metadata, streams, archives, and cloud backups.

Traffic In indicates the camera download bitrate. The following data contributes to the download bitrate; firmware downloads, configuration changes, as well as commands sent from the cloud i.e. reboot requests.
