For more than 4 years, Avigilon has been in the access control business, since their May 2013 acquisition of RedCloud.
Since then, Avigilon has shifted from leading with super megapixel (i.e., 'The Best Evidence' tagline) to being a mega-scale patent licensor to their competitors and aggressively promoting video analytics (e.g., their appearance search).

In this note, we review the state of Avigilon's access control and its competitive positioning to major competitors like Lenel and Genetec.
