The Company

Spot AI is upending the $30 billion video surveillance market. We're modernizing how businesses use video footage to improve operations, train workers, and ensure the health and safety of their teams.

With Spot AI's plug-and-play product, customers can upgrade their physical video surveillance in just 10 minutes at 50% the cost of market-leading alternatives...and it doesn't require camera replacements. Spot's edge-native technology works with almost every camera brand to record and index videos on the edge. With Spot's easy to use YouTube-like dashboard, customers can instantly access all their cameras across locations with powerful features to see, search and share their video footage in real time.

Spot AI was founded in 2018 by engineers from Stanford University and Cisco Meraki and backed by leading venture capital investors in Silicon Valley.
