Convergint and Verkada, two industry leaders, have collaborated on a state-of-the-art physical security platform, elevating the protection of individuals and spaces. Verkada, leading in cloud physical security and known for its single cloud-managed platform, presents an extensive suite of products, encompassing video security cameras, access control, vape detection, alarms, intercoms, visitor management, and mailroom management. Tailored to the unique needs of schools and school districts, this collaborative endeavor ensures an accessible, scalable, and user-friendly solution catering to technical and non-technical K-12 stakeholders.


The collaboration directly addresses the challenges confronted by IT directors tasked with managing security infrastructure across districts, often with limited teams of 2 to 3 people. While prioritizing safety, legacy systems pose challenges in monitoring, management, and proactive threat prevention. Additionally, these legacy systems lack accessibility for non-technical users, including teachers, principals, and superintendents.


The collaborative solution by Convergint and Verkada revolutionizes school security with a comprehensive approach:

  • Prevent student vaping: Real-time alerts for smoking or vaping, facilitated by Verkada sensors and synergized with Convergint’s offerings.

  • Manage school security anywhere: Verkada’s capabilities enable swift incident detection and response, enhanced by Convergint’s integrated tools.

  • Accelerate emergency response: Integrated custom alerts, wireless panic buttons, and Convergint’s expertise ensure a rapid response to threats.

  • Improve reliability and minimize costs: Verkada’s hybrid cloud devices and Convergint’s infrastructure optimize resource allocation, minimizing costs.

  • Lockdown doors in seconds: Convergint and Verkada enable custom lockdown scenarios for a swift and effective response, including panic buttons and Verkada Command.

  • Welcome, screen, and view visitors on campus: The collaborative solution simplifies visitor management, allowing easy screening, badge printing, and footage viewing within a unified interface.


The collaborative efforts of Convergint and Verkada yield tangible results, significantly enhancing student safety across districts while concurrently reducing the time IT directors spend on maintenance. The integration of Verkada’s sensors notably reduces student vaping incidents in areas where cameras cannot be present, underscoring the efficacy of this strategic collaboration.
