Verkada Reviews from Retail Customers
Real-time Asset Protection with Repeat Offender Alerts “Once we can identify where the products are missing from, we can figure out who took it, where, when, and get a picture with our 4K cameras. Using Face Search, we know how many times they’ve been in the building for the last 30 days, and with Person of Interest Notifications we are alerted if they come back."
