Disable/enable tamper and adjust sensitivity. Each Verkada camera comes equipped with an accelerometer to monitor for tampering or vandalism
Updated over a week ago

You can configure a camera to emit tamper events when it detects vibration or movement of the device.

Tamper events are turned on by default, but can be turned off for cameras that are in areas with a lot of vibration and therefore generate a lot of unwanted alerts (i.e., next to a construction site or a heavy door).

Based on your use case and camera location, you can also modify the sensitivity of the tamper detection to receive more or fewer tamper events.

Configure Tamper Events

You can configure tamper events in the following way

  1. Select the camera you want to configure

  2. Select Settings

  3. Select Events

  4. Toggle Tamper Events on or off

  5. (Optional) Select tamper sensitivity

Configuration notes

  • Site Admin permissions are required to configure tamper events on a camera

  • There can only be one tamper event configuration per camera which applies to all users in the organization

Enable alerts

If you want to enable alerts based on your Tamper events, create an Alert.
