Verkada False Allegations Against Avigilon Exposed

By: John Honovich and Sean Patton, Published on May 08, 2019

Verkada has leveled false allegations against Avigilon, as part of their aggressive marketing tactics against the 'dinosaurs' in the 'ancient' video surveillance market.

Despite being obviously false and despite IPVM bringing this to Verkada's attention, the company will not retract it.

[Update: After IPVM published this report, Verkada finally responded to IPVM with changes in their assumptions and claims. They are now deceptive rather than obviously factually wrong.]

Inside this note, we examine Verkada's false allegations and expose what Verkada is doing.

3. ******* *** * ****** *** **** ******* ******** ************ ** ******* *&*: We agree that ongoing maintenance and operations costs vary between systems, but many of our customers have complained about the high cost of maintaining NVRs across multiple locations.  For simplicity of the comparison, however, we have removed those costs from our analysis.
