To allow installers and integrators to create such solutions, manufacturers must deliver innovations which both enhance the technological capabilities of their products and allow those developments to be implemented in a realistic fashion.
The security industry has never before enjoyed the sheer breadth of technological options that it does today. Gone are the times when manufacturers waited for older technologies to reach a low price point before they became commercially worth implementing.
As advances deliver ever-greater functionality, so the ability to integrate disparate security elements increases too. With the emergence of video analytics and other data-driven software the result is security systems that not only enhance security but bring commercial, added-value benefits too.
The Benchmark Innovation Awards recognise innovations that solve problems faced when designing and implementing a security solution, enhance security appreciably or boost operational efficiency.
