Former Pelco chief is heading new Schneider Electric VSaaS company

US — The former head of Pelco, Herve Fages (pictured), has been confirmed as heading up MultiSight, a new VSaaS (Video Surveillance as a Science) company owned by Schneider Electric.

Designed for retailers, convenience stores, restaurants and other multi-location businesses, MultiSight is offered for a monthly fee which includes installation, hardware, apps (Apple and Android), cloud services and storage, support, maintenance, updates and system health monitoring.

A differentiator for MultiSite is that its “hardware and software is designed for the cloud. We have not taken [existing] security hardware and adapted it to be used in the cloud,” according to Fages.

Fages developed MultiSite with Pelco CTO Greg Millar and launched the service one year ago. With the concept developed and the service up and running in close in to 2,000 sites, Schneider Electric agreed to segment MultiSite as a separate company with Fages as managing director.

While it is operating as a start-up, with a team of 20 engineers, sales people and operations personnel, Fages said it’s important to note that MultiSite has the full backing of a major corporation. The next phase is to take the company from start-up mode to a mainstream company.
