Learn how to use a backup battery on your Verkada BP41 alarm panel

Updated yesterday

In situations where you use your Verkada BP41 alarm panel in critical safety applications, we recommend to have backup power in case of a power outage.

Verkada offers the ACC-BAT-4AH for use with the BP41 alarm panel. The Verkada BP41 can be powered by a 12V 4.5Ah sealed lead-acid (SLA) battery as a backup power source.

Install a backup battery on your BP41

Connect the red lead with the positive (+) connector on the battery and the black one to the negative (-). The battery pack can then sit inside the Verkada BP41 case.

Wire 2 backup batteries to the BP41

To get double the amp hours (capacity), while maintaining the same voltage, you can connect 2 batteries in parallel (NOT in series) to provide twice as much battery capacity, as shown below.
