I just ran into a POV demo at Fastenal; The Cameras and dashboard look to be a complete copy of Meraki Cameras AND Dashboard.
Also they are so bold that they put a use case study up as well. Network team just found out about it as well.
Looks like a copy to me what do you guys think?
I just started seeing a number of ads for them in various places, wanted to check them out to see what they are offering. They must have just kicked off a marketing campaign.
This is news to me, considering the 'original' engineers sit right next to me. I guess I better check tomorrow morning to make sure they are still there, they were there a few hours ago
Just another sign that the video surveillance industry is ripe for disruption. Meraki's cloud-managed wireless solution was once on the fringe, but look now. Cloud-controllers are more or less mainstream. The MR33 was the top selling AP on the market in 2017.
What will happen with video surveillance? We think dependence on NVR's will wane. Naturally, there will be other entrants in this new cloud-based segment but our expertise in cloud-based networking will give us a leg up.
