Winner for Accessories, Non-surveillance
iSCAN SmartPower Systems / LifeSafety Power, Inc.
iSCAN is the industry's first, smart power management system for access, security and CCTV that continuously monitors, tests and reports the health and status of the host power supply(s), battery set and up to twenty-four individual outputs. Each output is monitored for voltage and current fluctuations, and email/SNMP alerts can be set for voltage loss, over current, short current, line brown out, etc. Since iSCAN allows many service functions to be performed through a web-based browser, such as power cycle frozen devices, service response is im- mediate, and integrator/dealers can achieve a high level of savings by reducing service calls. iSCAN's 24/7 power monitoring and reporting capability also adds significant value to service contracts or RMR models.

Jensen, Security Products editor- in-chief. "It is difficult for our judges to pick a winner when many of the products are so outstanding.
