2016 Detektor International Awards Finalists Revealed!

Stockholm, Sweden

Autumn means that it is time once again to reveal the finalists for three of the most prestigious accolades to be awarded in the security industry – The Detektor International Awards 2016. As usual the competition is divided into three technology categories – CCTV, Alarm and Detection and finally, Access Control and the final awards presentation will take place on the evening of the 16th November, in Copenhagen in conjunction with the Sectech show.

The fast pace and changing face of the security industry means that each year it becomes more difficult to select new nominations as so many new products and ideas are launched into the security arena. It also becomes more difficult to compare products and services in each category as they become more technologically advanced and diversified in their design and usage. However, in amongst all of this activity there is a small niche of particularly eye catching and innovative new designs - and these are the products that earn the privilege of becoming short listed as finalists for the Detektor International Awards .

The Detektor International Awards aim to highlight and reward only those that display the most genuine innovation. In order to highlight the prestige of these awards in terms of innovation and design Detektor magazine has especially commissioned a renowned Swedish artist to create a set of unique glass sculptures, which will be awarded to the overall winners in November 2016 at the security industry presentation ceremony in Copenhagen, Denmark.

It is the 17th year for this independent event, and the Detektor International Awards panel of judges have scrutinised the security industry once again and finally whittled down the potential contenders to this shortlist of 12 candidates – four finalists in each category. This year is particularly interesting as many of the products not only offer technological innovation and advancements in their field, but many of them also offer solutions for applications in previously untapped markets or brand new markets, which opens up the security industry to a whole new target audience.
