SafeRise from FST21 Americas Takes Top Honors at 2011 New Product Showcase

July 22, 2014

SafeRise from FST21 Americas was honored with the Best New Product Award at the 2011 Security Industry Association New Product Showcase (NPS) awards ceremony at ISC West April 7, 2011.

SafeRise is an access control product that uses biometrics; voice, face and license plate recognition technologies; and video, voice and behavioral analytics.

OSID from Xtralis received the Judges’ Choice Award. OSID provides smoke detection by using dual light frequencies, enabling discrimination between smoke and other objects, which reduces false alarms.

“The judges were very impressed by SafeRise’s use of some of the most innovative security technologies available,” NPS Chair Jennifer Martin of Pixim said. “It is an excellent example of what the New Product Showcase is all about. And OSID’s smoke detection capabilities effectively address the critical problem of false alarms.”

In addition to the Best New Product and Judges’ Choice honors, awards were presented in 21 product and service categories. Also, the judges presented nine honorable mention awards. (Honorable mentions could be awarded in any category at the discretion of the judges.) The 32 awards are the most ever presented in the 32-year history of the NPS.
