SafeKard™, LLC Recognized in the 2019 SIA New Product Showcase at ISC West

SafeKard™ was announced as the winner of the “Best in Emergency Communication Systems” at the flagship annual award program at ISC West.

LAS VEGAS, Nev. – The Security Industry Association (SIA) has named SafeKard, LLC as an award winner at the 2019 SIA New Product Showcase Awards, the flagship awards program at ISC West recognizing innovative security products, services and solutions.

SafeKard™, LLC was selected as the 2019 winner of the “Best in Emergency Communication Systems” for its SafeKard™ ID badge holder with wireless panic button communication that utilizes the LoRa (Long range) wireless communications protocol provided by semiconductor supplier Semtech. The SafeKard™ product was recognized on the main stage at ISC West, the nation's largest converged security trade show, on April 10 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The revolutionary NeoSmart chip that drives the device was developed by OEM partner Neosen Energy enabling wireless charging, RFID and NFC reader capability, and LoRa connectivity in a very affordable package. When the panic button on the world's thinnest card case is pressed, the user's location is determined via a proprietary trilateration algorithm that can be read up to 5 miles away.

“SIA's New Product Showcase calls on security companies to develop extraordinary, innovative products and solutions, and this year's winners represent the best new offerings in the market,” said SIA CEO Don Erickson. “SIA congratulates SafeKard™, LLC for standing out among the entries in this highly competitive program to earn the ‘Best in Emergency Communication Systems distinction.”
