News of the investigation comes in the wake of Verkada filing a lawsuit against Motorola/Avigilon last week. The suit alleges that Motorola is seeking to shut down Verkada's business by filing the ITC complaint.

In this note, we examine the notice from the US ITC, how these two legal efforts relate and what comes next now that the ITC has formally commenced its investigation into Verkada.
