EchoStream EN6080 Area Control Gateway from Inovonics Receives Honorable Mention for Intrusion Detection and Prevention Solutions Wireless at SIA’s 2013 New Product Showcase at ISC West

Louisville, CO– April 16, 2013 - The EchoStream EN6080 Area Control Gateway (ACG) from Inovonics was recognized at the Security Industry Association’s 2013 New Product Showcase (NPS), receiving honorable mention for the Intrusion Detection and Prevention Solutions Wireless Award at the NPS awards ceremony at ISC West on Wednesday.

The newly launched EN6080 ACG is the industry’s first PSIA compliant device that provides IP-based interoperability of leading access control, video and area control (formerly burglary and intrusion detection) systems.

“It is an honor for the EN6080 ACG to be recognized among the security industry’s most advanced new products,” said Mark Jarman, president of Inovonics. “The solution was designed with the needs of our customers and integrators in mind. There is a demand for coordinated data sharing in order to reduce false alarms and create a more efficient security deployment. By utilizing the EN6080 Area Control Gateway, our customers can leverage PSIA interoperability, IP-connectivity and our EchoStream wireless network to connect existing or new systems into a fully integrated security environment.”

Through common data flow and sharing between access control, wireless intrusion, video and associated analytics, the EN6080 provides a centralized view of facilities and systems, while a web-browser user interface streamlines management across all wireless connection points (up to 3,000 endpoints). With the reliability of an embedded software-based controller, adding Inovonics’ burglary and intrusion detection capabilities to any PSIA compliant application is simplified.

“Each year, the companies competing in SIA’s New Product Showcase at ISC West present the leading-edge security solutions that are shaping the industry,” said SIA CEO Don Erickson. “These new technologies and solutions are the drivers that are moving the security industry forward, and I congratulate Inovonics on their win at this year’s NPS.”

Since its inception in 1979, the NPS has been the security industry’s premier awards-based marketing program. This year’s NPS Program had 84 entries from 66 companies.

In addition to the Best New Product and Judges’ Choice honors, awards were presented in 20 other product and service categories. NPS judges also presented seven honorable mention awards.
