BENCHMARK INNOVATION AWARDS 2019

THE WINNERS

At Benchmark, we passionately believe that the future of the electronic security sector lies in the creation of innovative and smart solutions. In order to allow integrators and installers to create such solutions, it is vital that manufacturers deliver innovation that both enhances the technological capabilities of their products, and allows those developments to be implemented in a realistic fashion. In order to highlight such advances, Benchmark runs its Innovation Awards scheme, which recognises and rewards innovative thinking. Here we highlight the winners in the 2019 Benchmark Innovation Awards.
