SIA says the program recognizes innovative security products, services and solutions.

Top among the winners – who were recognized on the main stage at ISC West on April 10 in Las Vegas, Nevada – was IPVideo Corp., receiving the 2019 Best New Product Award.

The 30 judges reviewed over 95 entries from more than 80 companies, presenting awards for technologies covering more than 30 product and service categories.

IPVideo Corp. received the Best New Product honor for its HALO IOT Smart Sensor, submitted in the Environmental Monitoring Systems category.


“A security device for privacy areas, HALO IOT Smart Sensor was introduced to help schools combat the vaping epidemic, bullying and active shooter threats. The addition of environmental sensors including air quality, advanced smoke detection, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and audio analytics such as glass break, gun shot and aggression detection, HALO has now expanded across verticals.  Facilities can now secure privacy concern areas including bathrooms, locker rooms, hotels, patient and dorm rooms and signal alerts to security,” said IPVideo in a statement.

“SIA’s New Product Showcase calls security companies to develop extraordinary, innovative products and solutions, and this year’s winners represent the best new offerings in the market,” said SIA CEO Don Erickson, also in a statement. “SIA congratulates all the companies who received awards in 2019, particularly IPVideo’s HALO IOT Smart Sensor for standing out among the entries in this highly competitive program to earn the Best New Product distinction.”

The Judges’ Choice Award was presented to Alcatraz AI for the Alcatraz AI product, submitted in the Access Control Devices & Peripherals category.

Alcatraz helps customers “replace badging as an access point identification method by leveraging facial recognition, 3D sensing and artificial intelligence to enable highly secure and frictionless entry into physical locations.”

Additionally, Axis Communications received the New Product Showcase Merit Award, which SIA says 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.
