Openpath Security, Inc. was founded in January 2016 by serial entrepreneurs Alex Kazerani and James Segil, who had previously founded EdgeCast Networks, Inc.[1] On May 22, 2018, Openpath publicly launched after raising $7 million in a round led by the founders.[2] In July of 2018, Openpath raised an additional $20 million in a round led by Emergence Capital.[3]


Openpath Access is a mobile-enabled, cloud-based access control system. The Openpath system can be an all-inclusive access control solution or retrofit an existing system. The Openpath app runs in the background and communicates to the Openpath Smart Reader over Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and cellular.[4] The Smart Reader connects over RS-485 to the Openpath Smart Hub, an expandable four-door controller. The Openpath Control Center is a web-based administrative portal where facility managers can add users, credentials, entries, schedules, and audit access logs. At ISC West 2019, Openpath released its Elevator Board, with support for 16 elevator floors.[5] Later that year, Openpath launched Lockdown, a feature that lets users create customized plans and lock down entries remotely for lockdown protocols.[6] Openpath products use modern security practices like end-to-end, AES encryption, as co-founder and security researcher Samy Kamkar noted "...there are areas of physical security that have been ignored for years and are extremely inconvenient for users."[7]


In July 2018, Openpath was named a TC Top Pick at TechCrunch Disrupt San Francisco 2018.[8]

In February 2019, Openpath was named one of 57 startups that will boom in 2019 according to venture capital investors.[9]
