The company says adding the Smartvue cloud-based video platform will enhance Johnson Controls’ offering of an end-to-end, smart cloud-based solution that can provide business data and intelligence to customers and added value to partners.
Nashville, Tenn.-based Smartvue’s video surveillance and IoT video cloud platform is supported in 140 countries and serves customers such as security firms, cable companies and others. The platform supports IoT technologies that enable secure video in almost any device to connect with a global cloud, accessed through an interface, says Johnson Controls.
“The addition of Smartvue’s open API cloud architecture to the Johnson Controls portfolio bolsters our ability to provide scalable video as a service in a highly cost effective, fast and secure way,” said David Grinstead, vice president and general manager, security products, building technologies & solutions, Johnson Controls. “This acquisition will only strengthen our potential to more fully harness the power of cloud-based video and provide opportunities for our partners to derive new revenue streams as the industry’s adoption of cloud increases.”
