The Electronic Security Expo (ESX) announced the 2016 Innovation. The ESX Innovation Awards recognize companies that bring the most impactful and groundbreaking technologies to the electronic security and life safety industry. 
The program acknowledges companies with emerging technologies, as well as those that have been field-tested. It identifies both the companies who are driving the security industry forward with innovative end-user offerings and those forging the path with new or improved tools that help security and life safety companies be more efficient and profitable.   
The winners will be featured at ESX 2016 in the ESX Innovation Awards Showcase on the expo floor. Attendees will have the opportunity to review the award-winning products and services that benefit the end users’ experience, as well as those that benefit top line revenues and bottom line results. In addition, 10 of the winners will compete in the TechVision Challenge, an interactive “Shark Tank” style competition, before a panel of top industry experts who will determine the Best of Show product or service. 
George De Marco, ESX chairman, said, “The ESX Innovation Awards are the perfect opportunity to recognize excellence and innovation in product and service offerings for the industry, and to reward those companies who are propelling us into the future.”
