IoT Integration Awards to be Announced at 2019 Total Summit

CE Pro, Commercial Integrator and SSI to recognize technologies and products with break-through connectivity and interoperability features.

The powerful Internet of Things (IoT) movement is spurring the birth of technologies that open new opportunities for custom, commercial and security integrators. Emerald Expositions’ CE Pro, Commercial Integrator and Security Sales & Integration will recognize a number of game-changing IoT technologies and products in its second annual IoT Integration Awards, this year announced at the Total Tech Summit, Nov. 4-6 at the Fort Worth Convention Center.

Emerald editors sounded off about the Awards:

“From thermostats to surveillance cameras to appliances to whole-house control systems… and everything in between… the Internet of Things (IoT) is becoming ubiquitous in the home. Full connectivity and communication among all devices is the new norm that integrators must handle for their demanding consumer customer base. The IoT Integration Awards will help residential integration companies identify the IoT devices they need to recommend and install,” says Jason Knott, editor-in-chief of CE Pro.
“Internet-enabled electronic devices and systems are flooding the marketplace, and security is no exception. In fact, often security — both physical in the form of networked centralized hubs and satellite components and logical in the form of cybersecurity — is at the very heart of the IoT revolution. This awards program is unique and exciting in that it salutes those products that are taking the convergence of connected physical and logical security to the next level,” says Scott Goldfine, editor-in-chief of Security Sales & Integration.

“Internet of Things has already become important in commercial spaces as customers increasingly have an expectation of intuitive design. Meanwhile, as customers get used to walking into a meeting room or hotel room and having the lights, shades, and multimedia react to their presence, it’s easy to see that it will become increasingly important. The products recognized in this space will help commercial integrators elevate their IoT offerings,” says Jonathan Blackwood, editor-in-chief of Commercial Integrator.
