Motorola Solutions has acquired WatchGuard Video in a deal which it says adds new capabilities to its video security solutions portfolio.

Motorola says the acquisition - for an undisclosed amount - expands its mission-critical ecosystem, adding to its video security solutions platform that includes fixed cameras and advanced analytics from Avigilon and license plate recognition (LPR) cameras and software from Vigilant Solutions.

WatchGuard Video designs and manufactures in-car video systems, body-worn cameras, evidence management systems and software, manufacturing at its Texas headquarters in the US.

“An integrated, secure mobile video solution can enhance safety and efficiency for public safety users,” said John Kedzierski, senior vice-president, Video Security Solutions, Motorola Solutions.

“WatchGuard provides industry-leading capabilities, from capturing an incident from more than a dozen vantage points to technology that enables users to recover and upload video from events hours or days after they happened.”

“We are excited to join the Motorola Solutions team,” said Robert Vanman, founder, chief executive and chairman, WatchGuard.

“This acquisition enables us to continue providing market-leading mobile video solutions to existing customers while also leveraging Motorola Solutions’ global footprint and growing video security solutions portfolio.”
