Founded in The Magic City, OpenVia is an access control platform that allows residents, visitors and delivery drivers to access properties via smartphones. The company works with existing access control or gate systems without additional hardware. OpenVia is great for Airbnb and VRBO renters, people who have private gates and order too many packages on Amazon, and homeowners looking for extra security.
CEO Patrick Campbell recently raised $1 million in funding and believes Birmingham has a vibrant startup environment.
“Birmingham is a great place to start, but it can be difficult to become a seed-stage business that still has all the details of the business. We are already working on several new products based on our core technology, which are very attractive for their wide range of properties.”
Patrick Campbell, CEO, OpenVia
