The Security Industry Association announced the winners of its New Product Showcase awards in a virtual ceremony, presented in partnership with ISC West.

The SIA New Product Showcase has occurred since 1979. New products are reviewed by a panel of judges with industry experience, and in 2021, following significant deliberations, the 35 judges presented awards for technologies covering 25-plus product and service categories.

Lumeo received the Best New Product honor for its Lumeo product, submitted in the Emerging Technologies category.

“Lumeo provides a way for a greater population of end users to implement effective video analytic solutions without the need of highly trained product engineers,” the judges said in their comments.

The Judges’ Choice Award was presented to Teleportivity for the QR Video Intercom product, submitted in the Emerging Technologies category.

“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,” said 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.”

Additionally, Marc R. Tardiff — founder of MRT Security Consulting and frequent 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 said. “I’d also like to thank our previous chair, Jennifer Martin, and current chair Chris Grniet for allowing me to continue to serve.”
