Five years ago Verkada had 38 customers for its building security products – today the California-based company that more than 11,000 businesses, including more than 40 Fortune 500 companies.
It offers security cameras, door-based access control, environmental sensors, alarms and a visitor management all on a cloud-managed platform
Verkada has added to its list of awards receiving the coveted Red Dot Award and iF Design Award for the product design of its Access Control system.
“With access control, organizations can add an additional layer of protection to ensure the safety and security of their day-to-day operations,” the company says in a press statement.
John Russell, Verkada’s Vice President of Design told SJA: ”We’re excited to be recognized for our groundbreaking product design. Our goal at Verkada is to redefine and dramatically elevate what customers can expect of enterprise security products. We’re breaking the mold in all categories, and this is only the beginning.”
Verkada’s Access Control hardware consists of the AC41 Door Controller and the AD31 Door Reader. The AC41 was designed with a simplified wiring layout and a removable cassette system, to simplify installation.
Verkada’s AD31 card reader is designed with a minimalistic approach to ensure clear communication between the reader and door controller. It precedes the newly released AD32, which supports higher scan ranges and multiple form factors.
The iF Design Award and 2022 Red Dot Awards follow last year’s wins of the 2021 GOOD DESIGN Awards and the 2021 International Design Excellence Award (IDEA®) from the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA).
