Sensor Settings

To edit the sensor's settings, select the gear icon in the top right of the sensor page.

This will open the sensor's settings menu.


Just like cameras, sensors can be added to a site or sub-site to define permissions.

To add a sensor to a site, select the dropdown under Site and then choose your preferred site.


To set the location of the sensor, select the pencil icon below Location. This will bring up a map and search bar. From here, you can type in an address or move the map to set the sensor location. Be sure to select Save to confirm the location settings.

Sensor Offline and Tamper Notifications

You can set notifications for when the Verkada sensor goes offline or is tampered with.

You can select users to send these notifications to by using the Search users bar. Search for the user's name and select the user (or users) from the list. A checkmark will be placed next to the user's name. Multiple users can be added with this method. To remove users, select the X next to their name below the search bar.

Serial Number

This is the unique identifier for your Sensor, used to claim the device to your Command organization.
