Example Use Cases

The Verkada API is used in a variety of ways across all industries. Below are some examples that illustrate what you can do with our API.

Integrate Verkada alerts into 3rd party systems

If you are using a 3rd party system to aggregate your alerts and alarms from multiple systems, you can pull Verkada alerts into that system using our API. This can improve usability and reduce response time for your operators as they no longer have to review multiple systems to see all alerts and alarms.

Put thumbnails from your Verkada camera on a website

If you would like to show the view from one of your cameras to your employees or customers, you can use the Verkada API to add your camera thumbnails into a website or 3rd party application. This would allow you to show the current condition of your storefronts, outdoor conditions (for parks or recreation facilities), or factory floor (for manufacturers).

Automatically create new Persons of Interest in Verkada Command

If you have another system where you manage Persons of Interest, you can use the Verkada API to automatically add new Persons of Interest to Verkada Command. This ensures that you get timely alerts whenever new Persons of Interest are added, without requiring additional setup.

Visualize data from your Verkada sensors in a dashboard

If you would like to visualize or explore your sensor data in a 3rd party data visualization or business intelligence tool, you can periodically ingest the sensor data using the Verkada API. This allows you to overlay the Verkada sensor data with data from other sources, or perform more detailed analyses on data from one or more of your sensors.
