DALLAS—ESX is proud to announce the category winners in its 2020 ESX Innovation Award competition. These products and services were selected by an independent panel of judges based on a set of criteria that considered innovation, end user experience, response to market need and more.

“We are proud to highlight next gen products and services that create new opportunities for security professionals to deliver what end users want,” ESX Chair George De Marco said in the announcement. “Many companies also want to gain insights on how to more effectively grow their revenues and maximize their profits.”

In the coming days, ESX will select 10 category winners to present their products for the ESX TechVision Challenge, a “Shark Tank” style format scheduled to take place the week of August 17. This year’s TechVision Challenge will be conducted virtually, with an on-demand video recording made available to the public. Watch the ESX Innovation Awards website for details and TechVision Challenge recordings as they become available.

Security Systems News is excited to be the Media Sponsor again this year, and winners will be featured in the September 2020 issue of SSN.

The prestigious ESX Innovation Awards recognizes outstanding products and services that drive the electronic security and life safety industry forward. In addition to the TechVision Challenge, ESX is introducing an ESX People’s Choice element where security professionals’ opinion will determine the winner of a brand new award.
