AMAG Technology’s Devon Energy Tower project has been awarded the 7th annual Security Technology Executive/Security Industry Association’s Security Innovation Award for the most unique collaborative security project of the year. The project demonstrated the collaborative efforts between the systems integrator, Dowley Security Systems, and their vendor partners to successfully meet the security needs of Devon Energy. AMAG Technology’s Symmetry Enterprise Security Management System with Symmetry M2150 Intelligent Controllers were selected to provide the access control for this Fortune 500 company. AMAG Technology is an access control, IP video and intrusion detection (IDS) solution provider.

“We are excited to be recognized for the role we played in Devon Energy’s well-deserved Security Innovation Award,” said AMAG Technology Director of Business Development, Jody Ross. “It was an honor to work closely with Dowley Security Systems, HMA Consulting and Devon to accomplish the challenging goal of providing a safe and secure environment for Devon Tower and its 150 locations throughout North America.”

“It seems that each year our Security Innovation Awards competition evolves, the quality of our submissions just get more impressive,” said Security Technology Executive, Security Dealer & Integrator and SecurityInfoWatch.com, Publisher/Editorial Director, Steve Lasky. “Our judges were extremely impressed by the scope and complexity of the Devon Towers project in Oklahoma City. It was a true collaborative effort between the vendor and systems integrator to create a solution that met and exceeded every expectation of the client – Devon Energy Corporation. Kent Chrisman said that AMAG was the best technology fit for this extensive security project because it offered them the opportunity to seamlessly integrate every option they needed.”

Dowley Security Systems hosted a Security Innovation Award Banquet on December 4, 2012 at The Colcord Hotel in Oklahoma City to honor Devon’s Director of Corporate Security, Kent Chrisman and Dowley CEO, Jim Brown, General Management, Jeff Fields and Operations Manager, Justin Steely along with the vendors involved with the project. In addition to AMAG Technology, Axis Communications, Bosch Security Systems and CSC were also honored.

HMA Consulting recommended AMAG’s Symmetry Security Management System with Symmetry Video Management to Devon Energy to manage their access control and security.
