IPConfigure takes top honors at the 2018 SIA New Product Showcase, presented at ISC West.

The Security Industry Association today announced winners of the SIA New Product Showcase Awards Program. Winners were recognized on stage at ISC West 2018, North America’s largest security tradeshow, and IPConfigure took top honors as Best in Show.

The SIA New Product Showcase received 122 entries in 2018 – beating the previous record from 2017 – with technologies covering 29 categories.

IPConfigure was recognized with the Best New Product award for its Orchid Core VMS for AXIS Camera Application Platform (ACAP).

The Orchid Core VMS “provides local and remote access to live and recorded video through an intuitive Web browser interface, with the same user experience on both workstations and mobile devices. In addition, each Axis Communications network cameras and video encoder equipped with an ARTPEC-6 processor can now host Orchid Core VMS’ recording engine, database, video storage, and an encrypted Web browser interface for live viewing, search, and video playback functions. While Orchid Core VMS runs as a self-contained application on Axis cameras, it also supports federating with Orchid Fusion and Orchid Fusion Cloud for enterprise deployments with unlimited cameras, users, and locations via a unified user interface.”

Guests of ISC West 2018 at the Sands Expo Convention Center can witness IPConfigure’s Orchid Core VMS for ACAP in action at Booth #29107 through the end of the trade show on April 13.

“The SIA New Product Showcase challenges our industry’s solutions developers to create and deliver exceptional security offerings, and this year we saw many new entrants competing in the showcase,” said SIA CEO Don Erickson. “It’s always a highly competitive program, and I congratulate IPConfigure for distinguishing itself by winning Best New Product overall – particularly notable considering the high number of entrants.”

Since its inception in 1979, SIA NPS has been the security industry’s premier awards-based marketing program. This year’s NPS Program had 122 entries from small, medium and large companies in the security industry. This number set a record for entrants in recent years.

In addition, the prestigious Judges’ Choice Award was presented to Allegion for its Von Duprin Remote Undogging and Monitoring Kit. According to Allegion, the product allows remote undogging (locking) of mechanical exit devices – commonly found on secondary perimeter openings in many institutions. The Von Duprin RU retrofit kit for exit devices is billed as “a cost-effective solution for these secondary openings that enables remote undogging for centralized lock down and door status monitoring.”

Attendees of ISC West 2018 can find Judges’ Choice Award winner Allegion in Booth #20043.

The NPS judges presented awards in 29 product and service categories. The full SIA NPS Award Winner’s List appears below, and it also will be posted on the SIA NPS website at
