Floor plans are a great way to plan and visualize your Verkada system. They can also be useful for a myriad of reasons, from historical activity hotspots to active motion detection. Floor plans also support our Verkada sensor so you can quickly view sensor data straight from the floor plan.
Adding and Labeling a Floor Plan
The floor plan file must be a .svg or .pdf file less than 5MB in size and less than 512 megapixels.
In order to add a floor plan, the user must be an Organization Admin.
Uploading and aligning your floor plan
From the Home select Floorplans
Select + New Floorplan
Select the file and wait a moment while the file uploads
Once the file is uploaded it needs to be assigned a location and oriented on the map
Note: Delimit each floor using a comma. For example floors 1, 2, and 3 would be entered as 1, 2, 3

We currently support Cameras and Sensors
Drag and place the device(s) where you want on your floor plan. After you add the camera you can then view the live feed from that camera from the floor plan
Note: Devices placed on the floor plan will inherit the GPS coordinates from the underlying Google Map.
If you edit the location of a floor plan, Command will ask if you want to move all cameras placed on the floor plan as well. The cameras will be assigned new GPS coordinates based on the new position of the floor plan.
