BACS is “the world’s first multi-biometric authentication technology, providing security measures by layering four different biometric authentications into one terminal”, according to CrucialTrak. In each BACS module, up to four biometric identification technologies are considered: touchless fingerprint, iris patterns, vein patterns and facial recognition authentication.

“Many returning companies entered the SIA New Product Showcase this year, and many new entrants also competed in the showcase,” said SIA CEO Don Erickson. “New and familiar faces did very well in the 2017 showcase. I congratulate CrucialTrak for distinguishing itself as Best New Product overall in a very competitive year.”

Since its inception in 1979, SIA NPS says it has been the security industry’s “premier awards-based marketing program”. This year’s NPS Program had 120 entries from small, medium and large companies in the security industry, roughly a 20 per cent increase from last year.

In addition, the Judges’ Choice Award was presented to Thermal Imaging Radar for Hydra. The Thermal Radar Hydra provides wide-area intrusion detection through continuous 360° thermal intrusion detection combined with 360° targeted surveillance from a 30X zoom laser IR starlight PTZ, said the company.


The NPS judges presented awards in 29 product and service categories. For the full list of winners, click here.
