Call off the search - the Detektor International Award finalists are here!

Stockholm, Sweden

The search is over for the finalists for the Detektor International Awards 2017, now considered to be one of the most prestigious accolades within the security industry. For the 18th year our industry scouts have been out on a global search over the last twelve months to find the most original and innovative technological developments to put forward. And after a difficult selection process the nominations have been selected.

This year we not only have the three original categories of Video Surveillance, ID & Access Control and Alarm & Detection product of the year, but we have also added a complete new category –  IoT Security  - to reflect the new trends and fast changing pace of the industry today. Three finalists have been selected in each category.

The Detektor International Awards is an independent award scheme and rewards those manufacturers that display the most genuine innovation and originality. In order to reflect such value and commitment, each year Detektor magazine commissions renowned Swedish artist, Bertil Valien, to create a set of unique glass sculptures. These beautiful works of art are awarded to the overall winner in each category at the security industry presentation ceremony, which this year, takes place in Stockholm, Sweden during the Sectech exhibition, 21st – 22nd November 2017.
