 Press Releases

  • Brivo, the global leader in cloud-based access control and physical security platforms, announces the release of its latest product, Brivo Visitor, a kiosk-based visitor management solution for commercial properties. Brivo Visitor provides guest identity and photo capture, delivery management, arrival notifications, badge printing, customizable workflows, and journaling of data to the same centralized database as Brivo’s flagship Onair access control platform. The combination of visitor management, plus access control in a unified solution, simplifies security and compliance for administrators and provides a secure, streamlined visitor experience. The product elevates security for multi-tenant commercial properties, standalone offices, and reception areas in private company suites.

    “Modern offices want a fully integrated security ecosystem that enhances the building occupant and visitor experience at the same time it provides security,” says John Szczygiel, EVP and COO of Brivo. “Brivo Visitor meets this need with an additional layer of security, matched with a welcoming visitor experience. Employees and tenants appreciate it because they get immediate notification of guest arrival on their mobile phones.”

    As an extension of the Brivo Onair cloud platform, Brivo Visitor inherently provides data integration with the customer’s core enterprise security systems. For customers, this means that visitor management is part of the same web and mobile application suite they already know how to use. For partners , Brivo Visitor is an easy add-on to any new access control system. It can even be added to existing accounts remotely, with no truck roll.

    Another timely benefit of the custom workflow feature is the ability to ask health questions related to the Coronavirus. This provides a means to screen for potential risks and capture the data needed for contact tracing should a visitor or host later turn out to be symptomatic.

    Brivo Visitor is easy to set up as it supports badge printing from AirPrint-enabled printers, and uses any commercially available iPad and kiosk to easily complement office decor and accessibility requirements. The Brivo Visitor app is distributed via the Apple App Store, and is activated through a subscription available from Brivo authorized resellers.

  • Brivo, the global leader in cloud-based physical security, has acquired Parakeet Technologies, a provider of smart building solutions which include sensors, thermostats, wireless locks, and lighting controls. The acquisition accelerates Brivo’s ongoing push to enhance its in-building capabilities beyond its current access control, video, and security. The companies had already been working together as partners, and now plan a deeper integration between their products, including a common user interface, unified billing, and bundled services.

    “We saw Parakeet’s IoT platform as an ideal way to quickly bring Smart Office capabilities to our channel partners and end users,” said Steve Van Till, President & CEO of Brivo. “Parakeet has a great track record of providing highly reliable remote management to widely dispersed properties, and they share our core values around customer service, cyber security, and innovation.”

    The Parakeet product leverages cloud services, mobile apps, and an on-premise IoT gateway. The gateway provides connectivity to Z-wave sensors, locks, thermostats, lighting and other devices. Internet connectivity to the gateway is supported via WiFi, Ethernet or an integrated cellular modem with a built-in service plan. Parakeet’s responsively designed web app enables property managers and security personnel to manage smart building infrastructure from one central dashboard, while collecting data to track, monitor and manage staff.

    Parakeet launched its product in 2015 in the Vacation Rental market. According to Brad Huber, Founder and CEO of Parakeet, “Among property managers who cover large geographic territories for dozens or hundreds of clients, we uncovered a need for a remotely managed IoT service that would boost productivity and save money.” Commenting on the installation challenges across large regions, he added that “being able to provide our products through Brivo’s international base of security dealers will give our customers the convenience of professional installation and ongoing service.”

    The Parakeet platform will continue to be offered as a stand-alone solution for the Vacation Rental Market under the new name, Brivo Vacation Rental, and will be unified with Brivo’s billing system. All current Parakeet customers will continue to be supported on the existing product, with options to add Brivo offerings to their current service plans.
