Each year, the ESX Innovation Awards program recognizes outstanding products and services that drive the electronic security and life safety industry forward. This year’s winners will receive their awards on the expo floor at ESX on June 4.
To determine the best from each category, judges select winners from a pool of applications from manufacturers and service providers, serving the industry with innovative end user offerings and tools that help dealers, integrators and monitoring professionals become more efficient and profitable.
“The nominees for ESX Innovation Awards were extremely impressive this year and nicely represent the electronic security and life safety industry,” said George De Marco, ESX chairman. “Solving everyday problems is the key to growth opportunities for dealers, integrators and monitoring companies to better compete in the marketplace.”
The winners selected are recognized as next gen products and services that offer significant opportunities for growth. Judges from across the country are invited to provide their expert opinions. This year’s judges are: Rodger Reiswig, Johnson Controls (Florida); Grady Medcalf, Spectrum (Colorado); Michele Monheim, Amherst Alarm (Upstate New York); Steven E. Paley, Rapid Security Solutions (Florida); and Adam Thompson, Wired-Up Systems (Arizona).
Entrants to the Innovation Awards program are judged on: features and functions, innovation, end user experience, ability to solve a problem, revenue growth potential, impact on company efficiencies and compliance with regulations. These metrics provide a rubric that determines the most innovative and exceptional products and services in the industry.
Winners of the Innovation Awards will be featured in the ESX Innovation Awards Showcase in Booth 615 during live expo hours, June 4-5.
To determine the best in show, the ten most innovative category winners will enter the TechVision Challenge: a Shark Tank-style competition before a panel of judges at ESX. The winner of the TechVision Challenge will be announced live from the expo floor at ESX Central on June 4.
