Any solution, service or product by any company, irrespective of whether they exhibit at the Amsterdam Security Expo, is eligible for this prestigious award. An independent jury will be announcing the winners on the opening day of the Amsterdam Security Expo.

Amsterdam Security Expo Innovation Awards

From the submissions it can be concluded that ever more complete and effective products/solutions are coming onto the market which are much more 'plug-and-play' and therefore also more accessible for the consumer market. A significant increase in mobile devices which, for example, use smart phones, as well as wireless technology, are important developments which appear to be ongoing. Another striking trend is that cameras are being used more and more for alarm verification purposes, for example in conjunction with fire safety solutions
