OPTEX was recognized by the Security Industry Association (SIA) as an award winner at the 2021 SIA New Product Showcase Awards, the flagship awards program in partnership with ISC West recognizing innovative security products, services and solutions.
OPTEX was selected as the 2021 winner of the Intrusion Detection and Prevention Solutions (Physical – Wired) category for its REDSCAN Pro Advanced LiDAR Series and honored June 17 during the virtual 2021 SIA New Product Showcase awards ceremony. OPTEX will be on display July 19-21 at ISC West – the nation’s largest converged security trade show – along with the other 2021 SIA New Product Showcase entrants in Booth 14073 on the ISC West show floor.
The latest evolution in the award-winning REDSCAN LiDAR series, the REDSCAN PRO can very accurately detect intruders to a range of 165x330ft (50x100m), without any ‘gaps’ in the detection or the reliability ‘fading’ with range. By creating rectangular as opposed to circular (fan-shaped) detection patterns, there are no unnecessary overlaps, providing great coverage for virtual wall applications such as facade and fence protection, and for virtual planes to cover open areas, ceilings and roofs. The REDSCAN Pro is not affected by variable lighting, temperature or environmental changes, making it the best solution for high security sites.
“Each year, SIA’s New Product Showcase challenges companies to develop extraordinary, cutting-edge security technology products and solutions, and this year’s winners represent the industry’s best new offerings,” said SIA CEO Don Erickson. “SIA congratulates OPTEX for standing out among the entries in this highly competitive program.”
Since its inception in 1979, the SIA New Product Showcase has been the security industry’s premier product awards program. New products are reviewed by a panel of judges with extensive industry experience, and in 2021, the 30+ judges presented awards for technologies covering 25 product and service categories, along with the Best New Product Award and the prestigious Judges’ Choice Award.
