Secure Manufacturing

secure manufacturing with Verkada devices

Finding the right security resources is necessary for a safe working environment in manufacturing plants. After all, no industry is exempt from security threats. Integrated security systems ensure both employee safety and industrial safety. Having secure manufacturing prevents theft, misconduct, and vandalism all while ensuring a safe and productive working environment.

Thus, it is important to choose the right system to ensure secure manufacturing. Such security systems should include surveillance cameras for both indoors and outdoors, environmental sensors, access control, and alarms systems. At Monarch, we’re here to help you choose the right products for your manufacturing plant to ensure secure manufacturing

Why Is Secure Manufacturing Important?

Tools affect environmental conditions which can be monitored with secure manufacturing devices by Verkada

With the security devices offered by Verkada for secure manufacturing, you can help protect your staff, products, and property. Consider the following advantages of a manufacturing plant security system by Verkada.

Track Inventory Loss

Advanced physical security solutions, such as those offered by Verkada, allow one to pinpoint when exactly an incident occured. Essentially, teams can search camera footage with filters (i.e., look for a specific clothing color, a face, or simply motion). Secure manufacturing through surveillance cameras and access control allows one to easily and quickly track inventory loss.

Building Insights

Another benefit to secure manufacturing is access to building insights. For example, the SV11 Environmental Sensor provides heat maps, people counting, an assessment of floor traffic, and suggestions to improve employee productivity and safety.

Deter Threats

A third benefit to secure manufacturing is that it deters potential threats – including angry employees, vandalism, and theft. With the cameras and sensors offered by Verkada, you can receive real-time alerts for activity that could indicate unusual behavior. You can then quickly share live footage or archived events with the appropriate authorities.

All in all, secure manufacturing through the devices offered by Verkada provide one with several benefits including: tracking of inventory loss, insight on building analytics, and deterrence of potential threats.

Environmental Sensors

SV11 Environmental Sensor for secure manufacturing and product control

Verkada environmental sensors allow one to easily monitor the health and safety of manufacturing plants. These sensors can detect: the temperature and humidity, vape, the air quality, noise levels, motion, particulate matter (PM 2.5), and total volatile organic compounds (TVOC) . This information can be used to ensure safety and security by providing important measures that affect worker health.

Design and Features

The SV11 has an exterior layer made of stainless steel that has been photochemically etched, followed by a number of sensors that collect and present data. Hence, Verkada’s SV11 tracks changes in the breakdown of chemicals in the atmosphere using the onboard sensors. The Vape Index, a ranking of the chance of vaping/smoking on a scale of 1-100, is derived from the data collected by these sensors.

SV11 Environmental Sensor for secure manufacturing plant that monitors worker health

Furthermore, the SV11 boasts a plethora of other features that make it one of the most popular environmental sensors to a broad range of industries. Consider the following distinguishing features:

  • One Cloud-Based Software Platform: Access all sensor data from the Command platform and compare it to a timeline to get a complete picture of when these occurrences occurred. Individuals can also connect any sensor to a Verkada camera, correlating video with sensor-based data. Overall, this offers a layer of visual evidence to help people grasp what happened.
  • Easy Visualization of Data: Easily view and understand environmental data thanks to color-coded sensor readings and data representations.
  • Customizable Thresholds: Set custom alert thresholds to receive real-time messages via SMS and email.
  • Sensor-Based Alerts: Receive an alert whenever an anomaly is discovered. Alerts are issued through SMS or email to pre-selected individuals and security so that they may respond quickly.
