BrightWatch Surveillance was founded by insurance industry veterans who saw the need for vastly improved offerings in security and surveillance. We are proud to partner with Verkada to bring truly innovative solutions to bear on the myriad of problems that have long been associated with existing surveillance systems.

Verkada was founded by three computer scientists and security experts who studied together at Stanford University. A few years after their first company was acquired, they set out to solve the Next Big Thing. Working together out of a basement, in 2015 they built a functional prototype that used facial recognition algorithms to unlock their front door. Shortly thereafter, the trio connected with an experienced enterprise operator and Verkada was born.

Together, our mission is to:


We bring enterprise security cameras that combine cutting-edge camera technology with intelligent, web-based software that gets better as we go through time.
