Wilmington, N.C. firm has its eyes on profitable video surveillance deals

Wilmington, N.C. startup Rogo has inked a deal with Hargray Communications and is looking for more business from Time Warner Cable. The company makes what it calls an "easy and not expensive to use" video surveillance system that works with existing USB and IP technologies and wireless cameras.

The patent pending Rogo system is currently being sold directly to businesses and consumers and white labeled to Hargray but the company is looking for more. "We're talking with regional and national telecommunications leaders," said company CTO Cyrus Chipman. "As a business, we're hoping Time Warner would carry it to their customers."

What Chipman would like the service providers to carry is a remotely controlled visual monitoring system that works through existing cable or telephone broadband lines. It's just the start, too, as the company's next generation service will let homeowners remotely monitor home systems like lights and thermostats, Chipman said.
