Motorola Solutions acquires mobile video firm WatchGuard

Motorola Solutions has acquired WatchGuard, a US-based designer and manufacturer of in-car video systems, body-worn cameras, evidence management systems and software used by law enforcement bodies.

“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.”

The acquisition adds to Motorola Solutions’ mission-critical ecosystem. The company has been adding to its video security solutions portfolio in recent years via acquisitions of companies such as Avigilon, which provides fixed cameras and advanced analytics; Vigilant Solutions, a provider of software and licence plate recognition (LPR) cameras; and Gridstone, an Australian app developer.

“We are excited to join the Motorola Solutions team,” said Robert Vanman, founder, CEO and Chairman of 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.”
