The Commercial Integrator’s Best Electronics Systems Technologies (BEST) awards program highlights the most outstanding new products, solutions and services that could impact the commercial integration industry in 2017.
Winners of the BEST Awards were chosen by a panel of industry experts, integrators and the editors of CI from various categories including audio/video, control and automation, networking and communications, security, building enhancements, and dealer-installed aids. Product categories were further broken down into specific types of solutions such as Access Control, Audio Conferencing, Surveillance, and Storage/Management among others.
Criteria for the winning products included innovation, functionality, competitive advantages and benefits to the installer.
CI’s Editor-in-chief, Tom LeBlanc said that “the judging panel had some touch decisions this year. We’re proud of this year’s crop of winners and confident that companies that leverage these solutions will see return on their investments.”
