“Smart and digital solutions are the trend”

Which exceptional products and solutions in the security and fire-safety industry qualify for the prestigious Innovation Awards? Today the jury – with chair Hélène Minderman (TLN, Security Professional of the Year 2016) - announced the nominees of 2017. The Innovation Awards are organized every two years during Amsterdam Security Expo, the final winners of this year will receive their Award at October 31 at 11 a.m. at the InnovationLAB. In total, the jury selected 14 nominees, divided over 5 categories; Fire safety, Solutions, Burglar & Alarm Systems, CCTV and Access control. In general the jury was impressed by the amount of innovations they received. Jury chair Hélène Minderman: “We see a clear trend of smart and digital solutions in the security and fire-safety industry!”

In addition to Minderman the jury of the Innovation Awards 2017 consists of Jan Kuipers (VEB), Fred van Poelgeest (Uneto-VNI), Paul van Dooren, Netherlands Fire Service (Brandweer Nederland), Rick Strijbos (KNVI SIG IBIS), Pieter van Gelder (TU Delft Safety and Security Institute) and Ben Nagel (VBN).


The jury used several criteria to make this first selection of nominees. To be judged in the first place the innovation should be – among other things - introduced after June 2015, be widely applicable and have a good price-performance rate. Important criteria to be selected as nominee were furthermore sustainability and a clear contribution to a “safer world”. Visitors of Amsterdam Security Expo can see all nominated products and solutions in the InnovationLAB.
