Alarm Licensing (2023)

Monitor your devices with Alarm licensing options

Updated over a week ago

Alarm licensing is imperative to an organization to monitor the number of devices that the organization has and the number of licenses a customer maintains.

The Verkada Alarms team is pleased to announce changes to how the products are licensed and to introduce the Alarm licensing tiers. These tiers allow you to select how many events the Verkada monitoring team can verify based on the tier.

What’s new with Verkada Alarm license tiers

Verkada offers three Alarm license tiers, each with different professional monitoring capabilities, where one Alarm license is required per physical site address.

All license tiers include complete access to the full Verkada Alarms platform:

  • Alarm triggers—Configure any Verkada device as alarm triggers.

  • Alarm responses—Police dispatch, talk down, automated deterrence devices, and or prerecorded messages.

  • System settings—Set arm/disarm schedules, assign or revoke user key codes, and more.
