Verkada Guest offers a bells feature that allows you to configure a Guest type that sends a notification without requiring the user go through a full check-in process. This is handy for use cases, such as a delivery driver dropping off a package.

Configure a bell for your Guest site

  1. In Verkada Command, go to All Products > Guest.

  2. On the left navigation, click the Guest Settings (gear) icon.

  3. Under Organization, scroll to Sites.

  4. From the list of tiles, select the site where you want to configure a bell.

  5. On the left, scroll to Guest Types and click Manage Guest Types.

  6. On Guest Types:

    1. At the top right, click the Add Guest Type icon.

    2. Select the Bell radio button.

    3. Click Save and Continue.

  7. After selecting that option, you are prompted with a new menu that allows you to configure the various options for your new bell.

Bell settings



Label this bell

Set the name of the bell that will appear on your Guest tablet. Make it clear and instructive to ensure the correct option is pushed if there are multiple.

Notify Contacts

Configure contacts that should receive a notification when the bell is pushed. You can add contacts by searching for existing contact names, or by entering an email address or phone number, including country code (for example, +15558675309).

Display Message

Additional Actions

  • Who is this for?

  • Take a photo
    Take a photo using the tablet. Useful for proof of delivery.
