From a financial perspective, Sypixx is probably the most successful US video surveillance startup post 9/11. Acquired by Cisco for $51 M in 2006 [link no longer available], Sypixx was acquired only a few years after launch and at a significant profit for its investors.
Sypixx demonstrates two key qualities of successful video surveillance startups: (1) founders with deep expertise in the market and (2) no VC funding - Sypixx funded by employees and angels.
