The Security Industry Association (SIA) has announced the 2021 winners of the SIA New Product Showcase Awards, the flagship awards program presented in partnership with ISC West recognising innovative security products, services and solutions. Top among the winners – who were recognised on 17 June during a virtual awards show – was Lumeo, receiving the 2021 Best New Product Award.
Since its inception in 1979, the SIA New Product Showcase has been the security industry’s premier product awards program. New products are reviewed by a panel of judges with extensive industry experience and in 2021, following significant deliberations, the 35 judges presented awards for technologies covering 25+ product and service categories. The 2021 SIA New Product Showcase entries will be on display 19-21 July in Booth 14073 on the ISC West show floor.
Lumeo received the Best New Product honour for its Lumeo product, submitted in the Emerging Technologies category.
“Lumeo is the first and only ‘no-code’ video analytic builder that provides integrators, software vendors and solution providers with the ability to create and deliver custom analytics in minutes and with no technical skills needed,” said Lumeo. “Using drag-and-drop tools, pre-built analytic building blocks and AI models, Lumeo lets providers instantly add AI-powered analytics to their own solution or extend existing VMS and camera installations to increase revenue and bottom line. Lumeo’s cloud-managed analytics can run in the cloud, on-premises or in a hybrid model so you can optimise for convenience or cost.”
The prestigious Judges’ Choice Award was presented to Teleportivity for the QR Video Intercom product, submitted in the Emerging Technologies category.
“Imagine being able to install an app-like ‘video intercom’ experience, anywhere, simply with a QR code,” said Teleportivity. “There’s no hardware needed and no app required for the visitor. Simply scan with a smartphone and access. Intercom owners can add a whole range of other self-serve experiences into their code. Install onto a digital directory, letterbox, a door, a wall…Anywhere.”
“The 2021 entrants to the SIA New Product Showcase are a remarkable group and we were impressed by the many notable ideas and new technologies that came in this year,” said Christopher Grniet, Chair of the SIA New Product Showcase Committee. “It was a challenge making the final award determinations in this year’s highly competitive program following hours of panel-driven judging and technology demonstrations. Thank you to our dedicated judges for volunteering your time, expertise and efforts to make the 2021 SIA New Product Showcase a success.”
Additionally, Marc R. Tardiff – founder of MRT Security Consulting LLC and an active volunteer judge in the SIA New Product Showcase program – received the New Product Showcase Merit Award, which recognises an individual or company who, through their support of the New Product Showcase, demonstrates a commitment to the vision and mission of the program, contributes to its success and promotes the advancement of SIA and the security industry overall.
“I am honoured to be named the 2021 SIA NPS Merit Award winner and would like to thank Sandra Jones, who first gave me the chance to serve on the SIA NPS Committee, as well as SIA, Reed and our NPS Committee members for the work that has been going on for quite some time,” said Tardiff. “I’d also like to thank our previous Chair, Jennifer Martin, and current Chair Chris Grniet for allowing me to continue to serve.”
“SIA is thrilled to recognise the 2021 SIA New Product Showcase honourees, whose products, services and contributions represent the most innovative new security offerings on the market,” said SIA CEO, Don Erickson. “SIA congratulates all the 2021 award winners and especially Lumeo and Teleportivity, whose solutions stood out among the impressive field of entrants to earn the Best New Product and Judges’ Choice honours. Additionally, we congratulate Marc R. Tardiff on being named the 2021 SIA NPS Merit Award recipient in recognition of his dedication and valuable contributions to this flagship awards program.”
