SIA announces New Product Showcase winners
The Security Industry Association (SIA) has announced the winners of its annual New Product Showcase Awards, which are presented in partnership with ISC West.
The Best New Product Award was presented to Lumeo for its eponymous Lumeo product, which was submitted in the Emerging Technologies category.
According to a statement from the company:
“Lumeo is the first and only ‘no-code’ video analytic builder that provides integrators, software vendors and solution providers with the ability to create and deliver custom analytics in minutes and with no technical skills needed. Using drag-and-drop tools, pre-built analytic building blocks and AI models, Lumeo lets providers instantly add AI-powered analytics to their own solution, or extend existing VMS and camera installations to increase revenue and bottom line. Lumeo’s cloud-managed analytics can run in the cloud, on-premises or in a hybrid model so you can optimize for convenience or cost.”
The judge’s choice award was won by Teleportivity for its QR Video Intercom product, and was also submitted in the Emerging Technologies category.
“Imagine being able to install an app-like ‘video intercom’ experience, anywhere, simply with a QR code,” said Teleportivity. “There’s no hardware needed, and no app required for the visitor. Simply scan with a smartphone, and access. Intercom owners can add a whole range of other self-serve experiences into their code. Install onto a digital directory, letterbox, a door, a wall…Anywhere.”
Commented Christopher Grniet, chair of the SIA New Product Showcase Committee: “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. 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. Thank you to our dedicated judges for volunteering your time, expertise and efforts to make the 2021 SIA New Product Showcase a success.”
