Allegion – LCN’s 6400 COMPACT Low-Energy Operator Named Best New Product at ISC West

March 24, 2022

The Security Industry Association (SIA) has announced the 2022 winners of the SIA New Products and Solutions (NPS) Awards, the flagship awards program presented in partnership with ISC West recognizing innovative security products, services and solutions. Top among the winners, who were recognized March 23 during an award ceremony on the ISC West show floor, was Allegion – LCN, receiving the 2022 Best New Product Award.

Since its inception in 1979, the SIA NPS Awards have been the security industry’s premier product awards program. New products are reviewed by a panel of judges with extensive industry experience, and in 2022, following significant deliberations, the 30 judges presented awards for technologies covering 25 product and service categories. The 2022 SIA NPS Awards entries will be on display March 23-25 in Booth 18071 on the ISC West show floor.

Best New Product: Allegion – LCN 6400 COMPACT Series Operators

Allegion – LCN received the Best New Product honor for its LCN 6400 COMPACT Series Operators product, submitted in the Access Control Software, Hardwire, Devices & Peripherals – Wired category.

“The LCN 6400 COMPACT Series low-energy automatic operator helps your facility meet basic needs related to accessibility and touchless access on interior openings,” said Allegion – LCN. “Whether you are upgrading a single opening, renovating a portion of your building or constructing a new facility, the COMPACT series enables a healthy, accessible environment.”

Billed as a simpler solution for touchless access and accessible operation, this low-energy automatic operator is designed for low to medium traffic interior openings that require touchless access or accessible operation. The unique modular design allows the reuse of an existing LCN 4040XP mechanical closer. The electrified module connects with a mounting plate and just four screws and drives open the mechanical closer. The simplicity of this solution reduces the cost, labor and complexity required to automate an opening.

Judges’ Choice Award: Hakimo Alarm Monitoring 2.0

The prestigious Judges’ Choice Award was presented to Hakimo for the Hakimo Alarm Monitoring 2.0 product, submitted in the Commercial Monitoring Solutions category.

 “Hakimo Alarm Monitoring 2.0 uses AI to solve the top two problems faced by monitoring stations and SOCs: access control false alarms and tailgating detection,” said Hakimo. “Hakimo reduces false alarms by 80%+, has the best tailgating detector in the industry with <1% false positives and provides an integrated commercial monitoring solution.”

 “The SIA NPS Awards program had an exceptional pool of entrants for 2022, and the judges were excited to see such an impressive array of ideas and technologies represented this year,” said Christopher Grniet, chair of the SIA NPS Committee. “Following hours of panel-driven judging and technology demonstrations, we were proud to arrive at the final award determinations and congratulate the 2022 awardees. Thank you to our expert judges for your dedication and for volunteering your valuable time and knowledge toward making the 2022 SIA NPS a success.”


 Additionally, ASSA ABLOY received the SIA NPS Merit Award, which recognizes an individual or company who, through their support of the SIA NPS Awards, 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.

 “ASSA ABLOY is honored to be recognized by SIA with the NPS Merit Award. Innovation is a cornerstone of our business, and the NPS program is an excellent platform to highlight the importance of innovation in security,” said ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions Head of U.S. Commercial Sales Sean McGrath. “We would like to thank SIA for their critical role in advancing the security industry.”
