Every team needs one. That clutch performer. The ultimate professional that isn’t afraid to put the outcome of the game on their back. This individual also has the leadership attributes to elevate everyone around them. This person is, of course, the Most Valuable Player. But an MVP need not be limited to just the world of sports. For that reason, Security Sales & Integration created the Most Valuable Product Awards program.
Now in its seventh year, the purpose of the program is to illuminate how important products and technologies are to the success of security integration companies. While it is important to have talented, experienced technicians, it is all for naught if the equipment they are installing or utilizing is unreliable, outdated and lacking in features.
This year’s 33 entrants represent the best the security industry has to offer across eight different specialties. Of that group, eight winners were selected in the following categories: Access Control, Business Operations, Fire/Life Safety, Home Controls, Intrusion Detection, Miscellaneous Security Products, Security Apps and Video Surveillance.
“SSI’s Most Valuable Products Awards has solidified its standing as not only one of the most credible programs of its kind for the electronic security industry but also the greatest value for entrants,” says SSI Editor-in-Chief/Associate Publisher Scott Goldfine. “It can be difficult for security integrators to keep up with the thousands of products that are introduced throughout the year. SSI’s MVP Awards provides integrators the valuable service of distinguishing particularly noteworthy new products, and salutes the manufacturers responsible for them.”
To be considered, products had to have been released in the past 18 months or set to be available later in 2021. Each product was judged by a panel of seasoned integrators and industry consultants on innovation, functionality, competitive advantages, benefits to the installer or monitoring provider, and benefits to the end user.
