Winner Takes All

The ribbons have been cut and ISC West and the Public Security & Safety Expo are underway. The highlight of the day for many exhibitors is the SIA New Product Showcase, an annual awards program to recognize new and innovative security products and services. This year, the program celebrates its 30th anniversary. The awards showcase was created to recognize outstanding innovations in the design of electronic security products, systems and services.

Last year’s Best in Show winner was NoblePeak Vision’s TriWave Camera.

Who will win this year? Stay tuned!

Security Products kicks off our very own 2009 New Product of the Year Awards at ISC West this year. Sales and editorial staff have been busy scoping out new products and handing out entry forms to manufacturers with products, technologies and services that truly impressed us.

Award categories include access control, accessories, alarm, fire and gas equipment, network-centric security, perimeter security, video surveillance and business-continuity products.

Winners in each category will receive media attention from Security Products and will be able to use the magazine’s 2009 New Product of the Year logo for one year on all advertisements and marketing materials, plus recognition in Security Products marketing and promotions. Best of all, winners will receive editorial coverage in the November issue.

So, if you happen to see one of us walking around the show floor, make sure to flag us down for an entry form. With more than 1,000 exhibitors, we won’t be able to visit with everyone so, if you think you’ve got a winner, get our attention or stop by our booth number 2055 to pick up a form. If you’re not at ISC West this year, you can still enter by downloading an entry form from our Web site ( The entry deadline is June 15.

We will announce the winners at this year’s ASIS in Anaheim Calif.
