Brivo Access Control Company Profile

By Brian Rhodes, Published Feb 09, 2016, 12:00am EST (Info+)

This is our 9th in a series of access control company profiles. In this entry, we cover Brivo.

Profile

Brivo is a US based access company offering hosted systems, where users subscribe to a monthly cloud service to manage their systems rather than use a local networked management server. Brivo has been most successful with customers having a small number of doors per site but with many sites.

In 2015, Brivo was acquired by Dean Drako, who is also the founder of cloud video manufacturer Eagle Eye

The table below contrasts Brivo versus competition based on common differentiation factors like system size, platform 'openness', ease of video integration, and how the product is sold or available:
