Brivo Inc. provides a cloud-based access control and video surveillance products for physical security and internet of things applications. The company was founded in 1999, and three years later introduced a cloud-based access control to the physical security market. The physical access control system works with door card readers and similar devices, and locks or unlock things once a person has been authenticated. Brivo released the ACS5000 access control system in 2005, with Ethernet and GSM cellular connectivity options. In 2007, Brivo introduced its XML application programming interface (API). In 2017, Brivo introduced the availability of two new door access controllers, the ACS6000 and the ACS300, to complement its existing product lines, as well as integration with the Authentic Mercury open platform. Brivo introduced its IP door controller (IPDC) in 2011, an Ethernet access control panel in a compact form factor, with power over ethernet and FIPS 140-2 validated encryption. IPDC used standard network cabling to the door.
Gartner named Brivo a “Cool Vendor in Identity and Access Management" for 2014. In the same year, Brivo also released its Social Access Management API.
