Verkada Cameras

I just ran into a POV demo at Fastenal; The Cameras and dashboard look to be a complete copy of Meraki Cameras AND Dashboard. 

 

www.verkada.com

Also they are so bold that they put a use case study up as well. Network team just found out about it as well.

Looks like a copy to me what do you guys think?

Re: Verkada Cameras

I just started seeing a number of ads for them in various places, wanted to check them out to see what they are offering. They must have just kicked off a marketing campaign.

Also recruiting Meraki employees in SF apparently. Thanks for sharing.

Re: Verkada Cameras

That would because the original founders of Meraki started Verkada.  Also the original engineer of Meraki's camera is over there also.

This is news to me, considering the 'original' engineers sit right next to me. I guess I better check tomorrow morning to make sure they are still there, they were there a few hours ago 🙂

Re: Verkada Cameras

We are evaluating Meraki cameras now, together with Verkada and Rhombus. I believe these are the 3 players in the cloud-based surveillance space. All 3 very similar on the surface.

 

My other option is a traditional NVR based system. I'm leaning towards cloud-based. Concerned about price and annual fees, but not there yet in the eval. Right now focusing on the hardware and software. I have all 3 brands active on trial at the moment.

Re: Verkada Cameras

Curious how your evaluation is going - any feedback? We're working with a customer who is doing analysis on alternatives for their business case.

We decided on Meraki last month and we are implementing now. We are doing 100 cameras and I have installed 28 already. I’m trying to do 5 a day. Very happy with Meraki. I’m also positively impressed with the other vendors.

Re: Verkada Cameras

Thanks for the reply - what was the main reason you chose Meraki (price, support, etc.)?

Cisco brand name. The other 2 brands have lower pricing.

One of our Meraki reps went there about a year before they launched their web site. From the hype, I expected a lot more than copies of Meraki cameras. I still do not see much improvement since.
