Alocity was recognized with the Best New Product honor for its Alocity Access Control Platform product at the 2023 SIA New Products and Solutions (NPS) Awards, held yesterday at ISC West.

“[Alocity Access Control Platform] is an intelligent security platform to manage access control with video and connected sensors, a multifunction reader with 3D face verification, mobile credentials over Bluetooth and NFC,” said Alocity. “Video intercom with remote unlock. Onboard zigbee module provides integration with zigbee motion, door/window contact, lights, locks and environmental sensors with automated workflows.”

The prestigious Judges’ Choice Award was presented to IPVideo Corporation for its Sentry ERS product, submitted in the Emergency and Mass Communication Systems category.

“[Sentry ERS is] a lockdown and emergency response system purposely built with schools in mind,” said IPVideo Corporation. “With a single button push, lockdown protocols are initiated and immediate alerts are sent to police providing superior incident awareness with live video, voice, text and GPS location data from areas where traditional video cameras cannot be deployed.”

Additionally, Bosch Security Systems 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.

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 2023, following significant deliberations, the 30+ judges presented awards for technologies covering 26 product and service categories. The 2023 SIA NPS Awards entries will be on display March 29 to 31 in Booth #25075 on the ISC West show floor.

“The SIA NPS Awards program had an impressive pool of entrants in 2023, and the judges were inspired by the array of ideas and technologies represented this year,” said Josh Heisler, Chair of the SIA NPS Awards Committee and Global Head of Tech and Tools at Amazon. “Following hours of panel-driven judging and technology demonstrations, we were thrilled to determine this year’s awardees, and we congratulate all the winners. Thank you to our knowledgeable judges for your commitment and support and for volunteering your valuable time and expertise to help make the 2023 SIA NPS program a success.”
