2023 IoT/Connected Product Awards
The IoT/Connected Product Awards bring to light the connected products that make our lives better and our jobs easier.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical devices, vehicles, wearables, home appliances, and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and connectivity which enables these things to connect and exchange data. This creates opportunities for more direct integration of the physical world into computer-based systems, resulting in efficiency improvements, economic benefits, and reduced human intervention.
Unlike any other media company, Emerald Expositions is uniquely positioned to offer the broadest exposure possible for the Connected Product Award entries with our three targeted websites for professionals who sell, install and connect IoT devices in homes and businesses worldwide (CEPro.com, CommercialIntegrator.com and SecuritySales.com).
Here's what our editors have to say about IoT:
"It's almost impossible these days to find a technology product that does not offer some sort of connectivity. Everything in today's smart home - from lights to climate controls to AV, shades, security and more - relies on communication with each device. The Connected Products Awards highlights how suppliers are ensuring reliable and high-performing interconnected solutions for the smartest homes," says Arlen Schweiger, editor-in-chief of CE Pro.
“As the Internet of Things revolution continues unabated, commercial spaces are transforming, becoming ever more interconnected and boasting device-to-device communication that was heretofore unimaginable. AV integrators who specialize in commercial environments are certainly embracing the power and capabilities that IoT offers. A program like the Connected Product Awards ably highlights the products and technologies that will help integrators run their businesses better and complete their projects more effectively,” Dan Ferrisi, editor-in-chief of Commercial Integrator, says.
Security Sales & Integration
"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, Associate Publisher of Security Sales & Integration.
