Terry Neely, former vice president of engineering at Honeywell Access Systems, brings with him 25 years of experience in databases, networking and physical access control. Neely and his team created RedCloud’s access control so organizations can easily combine physical security and identity management. This helps organizations manage who can come and go from their facilities from one platform as opposed to separate systems that can lead to added costs and complexity. Unlike other access control systems RedCloud’s patented, web-based, physical and virtual appliance platform is open and has the ability to work easily with IT systems. Similar to Avigilon’s high-definition surveillance solutions, RedCloud’s products were engineered from the ground up for the modern IT era to deliver a new industry standard in performance, integration and ease of use. As a result, the company has experienced recent growth from selling their technology to large corporate and educational clients.
 
Avigilon paid $17 million in cash to purchase the entire RedCloud business. The Company expects the acquisition to be neutral to 2013 earnings and accretive to 2014 earnings. Terry Neely will continue to lead the access control development team.
