Author: Brian Rhodes, Published on Feb 09, 2016

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
