SIA New Product Showcase Awards

The Security Industry Association (SIA) announced the 2021 winners of the SIA New Product Showcase Awards, the flagship awards program presented in partnership with ISC West that recognizes innovative security products, services and solutions.

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 who have extensive industry experience, and in 2021, following significant deliberations, the 35 judges presented awards for technologies that cover more than 25 product and service categories.

Lumeo received the Best New Product honor 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,” Lumeo says. “Using drag-and-drop tools, prebuilt 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 [the] bottom line. Lumeo’s cloud-managed analytics can run in the cloud, on premises or in a hybrid model, so you can optimize for convenience or cost.”

The prestigious Judges’ Choice Award was presented to Teleportivity for its 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,” Teleportivity says. “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,” says 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.”

In addition, Marc R. Tardiff — founder of MRT Security Consulting and an active volunteer judge in the SIA New Product Showcase program — received the New Product Showcase Merit Award, which recognizes 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 honored 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,” Tardiff says. “I’d also like to thank our previous chair, Jennifer Martin, and current Chair Chris Grniet for allowing me to continue to serve.”

Swiftlane Joins with Altronix to Offer Access Control Kits

Altronix continues to expand the company’s popular line of Trove Access and Power Integration Solutions. Altronix Trove now seamlessly integrates with Swiftlane DCU 5 Door Controllers, which simplifies board layout and wire management. Security pros now easily can configure and deploy Swiftlane access control for up to 12-door systems.

The Swiftlane and Altronix partnership enables rapid deployment of contactless entry to offices through face recognition and mobile credentials. By using a combination of remote access grants for face recognition, mobile and PINs, and a cloud-based access control and wireless video intercom solution, companies now can manage primary and satellite offices remotely.

Regarding multifamily buildings, package theft has become a major problem. Food deliveries are at an all-time high, which increases the burden for property access. Technology such as video-based wireless intercoms and remote unlock now can be deployed seamlessly through the Altronix-Swiftlane solution, which creates user experiences that residents desire.    

“Our collaboration with Swiftlane streamlines the design and installation process, saving time and labor, which ultimately makes projects more profitable,” says Alan Forman, president, Altronix. “In addition to the convenience and cost-efficiency these preconfigured Trove kits deliver, they can be further customized with a number of options, including advanced network communications.”

Altronix and Swiftlane preconfigured Trove kits support four- and 12-door systems. Trove1 and Trove2 solutions provide scalable flexibility for custom applications, where specific power requirements are required.

“Our partnership with Altronix provides high degrees of efficiency and convenience to systems integrators and end users by expediting system deployment with assuring quality and performance. Altronix has a long history of delivering reliable, efficient and versatile power solutions. By combining Swiftlane's face recognition and mobile access control solutions with Altronix’s Trove solutions, we are able to deliver rapid deployment of touchless access control technology,” says Saurabh Bajaj, CEO and founder, Swiftlane. “We look forward to further enhancing this combined offering as new products and solutions become available from our respective companies.”

Altronix products are manufactured in the USA and backed by a lifetime warranty.
