SILVER SPRING, Md.—Submissions are now open for the Security Industry Association's (SIA's) New Product Showcase (NPS) Awards at ISC West 2019.

NPS, established in 1979, is the security industry's premier awards-based marketing program, recognizing innovative security products, services and solutions used to protect life and property in residential, commercial and institutional settings.

“Participating in the NPS—the leading awards program at the largest trade show for security products in the country—is a fantastic opportunity to highlight your company and security products,” Don Erickson, SIA’s CEO, said in the announcement. “Each year, the NPS judges select the honorees from a pool of top-quality entries, signaling the best new and refreshed products on the market to the 30,000+ industry professionals attending ISC West and the security industry overall.”

The 2019 NPS award categories, nearly 40 in total, are extensive and include everything from access control and video surveillance to mobile apps and network solutions. Additionally, the NPS judges will present the Best New Product Award and the Judges’ Choice Award.

“The array of NPS award categories and definitions reflect the advancements and evolution of new security technologies and tools,” Chris Grniet, SIA NPS committee chair, said in the press release. “We look forward to reviewing the 2019 award entries, representing the best of the best in the industry.”

The 2019 NPS will take place April 10 during ISC West, which will be held April 9-11, 2019, at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas.
