Motorola Solutions acquires Calipsa

Motorola Solutions has acquired Calipsa, a cloud-native video analytics services firm based in London, UK.

Calipsa’s scalable platform enables businesses to optimise security with AI-powered analytics that verify alarms, enable content-based searches, detect tampering and assess the health of cameras in real time.

The solution is used by enterprise and security monitoring customers around the world.

Calipsa’s technology allows customers to add AI to existing IP-based cameras without additional hardware, enabling new analytics capabilities on the millions of IP-based cameras already deployed.

“We believe AI, spanning from the edge to the cloud, is driving the future of video security,” said Greg Brown, chairman and CEO of Motorola Solutions. “With Calipsa, we can rapidly extend our intelligent analytics across any video security solution, and support the accelerating trend of enterprises using cloud technologies to enhance safety and security.”

Mohammad Rashid, CEO of Calipsa, added: “Joining the Motorola Solutions team enables us to accelerate the development and broaden the reach of our innovative technologies, that transform video from a retroactive investigative tool into a proactive response tool.”

The value of the acquisition has not been disclosed. The deal strengthens Motorola Solutions' Video Security & Access Control unit, and follows last month's acquisition of London-headquartered Ava Security.
