2018 Detektor International Awards finalists revealed

Stockholm, Sweden

The security trade magazine Detektor International has now nominated 12 products/solutions for the 2018 Detektor International Awards. The overall winners in each category will be announced at the security industry presentation ceremony in Copenhagen, Denmark, during the Sectech exhibition, 7 November 2018. View the video presentation above to see the Detektor International Award winners of 2017.

The prestige associated with Detektor International Awards is derived from the fact that there is no formal entry process. Instead, each year, the Detektor International Awards panel of jurors scrutinise the security market to discover, nominate and vote on which products demonstrate the most innovation, versatility and user friendliness.

There are four product categories: ID- and Access Control, Alarm & Detection, Video Surveillance and IoT Security and three products have been nominated in each category. The winner in each category will be awarded the Best Product Award and the other finalists will be awarded the Innovative Achievement Award at the security industry presentation ceremony in Copenhagen.
