Verkada cameras will upload high-resolution thumbnails to the Verkada cloud Once every 20 seconds. These thumbnails are widely used across multiple features on Verkada Command, including timelapse and video search.  Once the maximum storage capacity is reached for a device, Command will automatically make room for a new thumbnail by deleting the oldest thumbnail on the camera and in the cloud.

The resolution of displayed thumbnails vary based on the feature and the model of camera:
