Update [April 23, 2020]: ESX leadership strives to find innovative ways for the community to stay connected and support electronic security and life safety professionals during these unprecedented times. While the in-person ESX 2020 conference may be cancelled, we are pleased to announce that the 2020 ESX Innovation Awards will be going virtual and open to all security and life safety industry manufacturers and service providers.
The ESX Innovation Awards distinguish innovation and excellence in electronic security and life safety and identify the next-gen products and services that will propel the industry forward. We encourage companies to enter products or services that benefit the end user experience, as well as benefit top line revenue and bottom results of dealers, integrators, and/or monitoring companies.
The 2020 ESX Innovation Awards will be conducted virtually and award-winners will be shared publicly to the ESX community this summer to celebrate all the industry has achieved this past year. Check back in early July to find out who has made it to compete in the TechVision Challenge.
Voting for the People's Choice Award is now open. Cast your vote here by Thursday, August 13.
The 2020 ESX Innovation Awards are comprised of three award types:
- Best in Category: a panel of experts will review and select the best from each of the 14 product/service categories.
- TechVision Best in Show: a panel of experts will review the Best in Category winners and select the top-rated product or service that demonstrates exemplary results, benefits, and innovation.
