Notice: Avigilon Not InvolvedBy: John Honovich, Published on Mar 27, 2013
Avigilon agrees those involved are their business partners. Moreover, the connection is clear and significant.
The individual in both incidents is publicly known by a pseudonym ("AK357") and affiliation with Avigilon. Indeed, in a popular forum, this individual publicly and actively markets Avigilon products, identifying himself in over 2000 posts as "Avigilon Certified Partner and Distributor," as excerpted in the image below:
Furthermore, we can find no public record of a real name, place of employment or business website (save for his listing of Avigilon's).
At the same time, Avigilon has objected to our references of "Avigilon Partners", claiming that this implies they are either directly or indirectly involved in the activity.
We neither meant nor claim that the Avigilon corporation is involved in any unethical or illegal activities related to these incidents. As we noted, the issue, and language used, is with "Avigilon partner(s)."
However, as a courtesy, we have removed these reference from the two posts.
