Learn about the roles and permissions for Verkada Air Quality Sensors

Updated over a week ago

This article describes the set of roles and associated permissions for Verkada Air Quality Sensors.

  • Permissions are set using roles, which define the level of access users and groups have to devices and settings within an organization and its sites/subsites.

  • User permissions specify what tasks users can perform and what features users can access in Command.

  • Site-level permissions define what access a particular user or group has to the cameras within the site. Site-level permissions are configured using roles.

See Roles and Permissions for Command users for an in-depth explanation of the features and configurations available for overall Verkada Command usage and administration.
