Vehicle Analytics uses powerful edge-based capabilities to detect vehicles and filter results based on vehicle make, color, and body type.

How it Works

Vehicle Analytics leverages cameras' powerful onboard processing capabilities to detect the presence of, and analyze the properties of, vehicles as they appear in frame. As vehicles are detected, high-resolution images are taken and analyzed for vehicle objects. Selected images are then sent to Verkada’s cloud-based Command platform, where users can filter historical clips for vehicles and search for specific vehicles by time, date, make, model, and color.

Vehicle Detection

When scrubbing through a camera's historical video clips, yellow bounding boxes will appear over all detected vehicles.

Motion Search with Vehicle Filter

To perform a Motion Search, select a region of interest on the camera's live feed. Then, to enable Vehicle Filter, select Vehicles next to Filter. Command will show you historical clips where motion occurred in the region of interest and at least one vehicle was detected in frame.

Enable Vehicle Analytics

All Verkada cameras perform vehicle detection (as outlined above) out of the box. However, to enable more complex analytics, such as the ability to search for vehicles by color and make, Vehicle Analytics must be turned on.

  1. Select a camera 
  2. Go to INFO
  3. Select Settings
  4. Choose the Analytics menu option
  5. Toggle the Enable Vehicle History slider 

Using Vehicle Analytics

Vehicle Analytics can be seen on individual cameras, as well as across all cameras in the Organization.

Vehicle Analytics for an Individual Camera

  1. Select a camera

Vehicle Analytics Across All Cameras

  1. Select the search bar at the top of Command

Quick Vehicle Search from the Search Bar

  4. (Optional) In Select Cameras or Sites, enter camera names, serial numbers, or site names to further filter results. A combination of cameras and sites can be used in your filter. You can also add or remove vehicle attribute filters as needed.

In this example, we search for all detected cars.
