STANLEY Security Wins Big at SIA’s 2016 New Product Showcase

STANLEY Guard and BEST SHELTER are among Top New Products at this Year’s SIA Awards at the ISC West Conference

Indianapolis, IN – (June 7, 2016) – STANLEY Security, a leSTANLEY Guardading global manufacturer and integrator of comprehensive security solutions for a wide range of industries, announced that two top awards were given to their leading brands, as part of The Security Industry Association’s (SIA) New Product Showcase (NPS) forum at this year’s International Security Conference (ISC) West in Las Vegas in April.  STANLEY Security brought home “Best Product of the Year” in two categories: “Mobile Apps” category for STANLEY Guard, and the STANLEY Security brand, BEST® won in “Access Control Devices & Peripherals” for BEST SHELTER™.

Introduced in February 2016, STANLEY Guard is a smartphone and cloud-based personal safety and security response suite. The STANLEY Guard Personal Safety app allows users – whether they are students, employees, or executives – to send alerts, including video and their GPS location, directly to their security command center for immediate response. The STANLEY Guard Security Response app is designed to coordinate incident responses and provide a means of task management for facilities and institutions that manage their own security.  Finally, the STANLEY Guard Command Center platform provides businesses, schools, and other facilities an effective means to verify and dispatch their security resources and manage mass notifications.

SHELTER by BEST, a premier provider of high quality mechanical access solutions, officially launched at the ISC West Show in April, is a responsive lockdown solution, designed specifically for educational, business, healthcare and public environments, that allows the fast safeguarding of employees, customers and visitors. In an active shooter or critical safety incident it is imperative to be able to quickly create safe spaces within the interior of a building, protecting those inside. SHELTER’s multi-purpose fob, battery operated 9KX cylindrical lock and cloud-based software permit fast and easy lockdown of single doors, sets of doors, entire buildings or full campuses. With assistance from an integration resource, the SHELTER network components can be configured to allow immediate communication with first responders. The straightforward, effortless press of a button can initiate a series of events that make a facility safer and more responsive in lockdown situations.

“Each year, the SIA New Product Showcase highlights the innovative products in the security industry,” said Jim Cannon, President, North America, STANLEY Security. “We are proud that both STANLEY Guard and BEST SHELTER were chosen to be among the best of the best, and serve as excellent examples of the brands of STANLEY Security and the STANLEY Black & Decker family.”

“The Security Industry Association saw a great, diverse field of products in the 2016 New Product Showcase at ISC West, and nowhere was that more true than in access control devices,” said SIA CEO Don Erickson. “And, so it is a true distinction that STANLEY Security emerged with the best product in Access Control Devices Peripherals.”

“In our increasingly mobile world, security applications for smartphones have become a burgeoning segment of the security industry. And, the Security Industry Association has certainly witnessed the rapid growth of security apps in recently years at the New Product Showcase at ISC West,” said Erickson. “STANLEY Security clearly stood above the pack in mobile apps at New Product Showcase 2016, with STANLEY Guard setting a high bar, indeed, for cloud-based software. SIA congratulates STANLEY Security for both accomplishments.”

Since the first showcase in 1979, the NPS has recognized innovative products, services and solutions in electronic physical security. Technologies showcased through this program are used in the protection of life and property in residential, commercial and institutional settings.

In addition to the Access Control and Peripherals and Mobile Apps categories, the NPS judges presented awards in 24 other classifications. For the full list of award winners, please visit
