Avigilon Alta was formed in March 2023 when Motorola Solutions combined its cloud-based access control and CCTV solutions providers, Openpath and Ava Security.
Ava Security began in 2018 with a small core group of engineers who got together to find an industry where they could merge innovation, passion, and simplicity to help people reach their greatest potential.
Their attention was drawn towards the world of security—indispensable to modern work, yet often overlooked and taken for granted. Organisations needed the tools to understand if something was happening in real-time to keep their people safe and their premises protected.
Four years later, the company was delivering video security to enterprises around the world, using the power of the cloud through its video management software, Ava Aware, now Avigilon Alta Aware. Ava Security was acquired by Motorola Solutions in March 2022.
Avigilon Alta has teams in the UK, US, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Germany, Belgium, and Poland. Its cameras are manufactured in Taiwan.
Openpath was established in 2016 and quickly won awards in the USA as a fast-growing tech start-up and for its innovative approach to access control.
The company was acquired by Motorola Solutions in July 2021.
