Concept Smoke Screen 

Concept Smoke Screen Ltd, won the International Partnership Award for their partnership with established Brazilian security firm, Allarmi, in helping to prevent explosive attacks against ATMs in Latin America. After one of the largest privately owned banks in Latin America was being mercilessly targeted on an average of 40 times per month, Concept Smoke Screen Ltd worked with Allarmi to install closely monitored security fogging systems at 1,600 branches. The impact of the systems was so dramatic that the bank has now installed the systems across 4,300 branches, with the systems successfully decreasing the number of attacks to a minimal amount. Concept Smoke Screen Ltd and Allarmi have a shared value of protecting people and livelihoods, leading to a successful collaboration, so much so that Allarmi now hold regular training sessions regarding the systems and have significantly expanded their network of installers. They also founded Concept Smoke Screen Brazil Ltda, in order to produce the same quality products at an affordable price in order to help the local market and create new jobs in the process.


Printwaste Recycling and Shredding 

Printwaste Recycling & Shredding received the Environmental Award for their installation of 384 solar panels on their roof in order to move away from fossil fuels to cleaner energy sources. As well as installing the solar panels, they also fitted light sensors in corridors, toilets and to external lighting in order to reduce the amount of electricity being used. They continued to show their commitment to energy conservation by closely monitoring their usage against material processed in order to assess ways in which they could reduce electricity consumption, whilst increasing their output. By transforming their unused roof space into an environmental asset, their electricity bill has been reduced by 51% with their annual C02 emissions decreasing dramatically. Their commitment to the environment has also resulted in their employees being more energy conscious, as well as their customers being happy in the knowledge that their materials are being shredded through eco-friendly solar energy. 


CSL

CSL were the overall winners of the Innovative Security Project of the Year award, receiving the accolade for their CSL Connected project. Working in partnership with the industry’s leading panel manufacturers, CSL Connected combines CSL’s Critical Connectivity with the customer’s chosen alarm panel, with the added option of an end-user app. Utilising their partnership with over 60 UK ARCs, CSL Connected ensures that professional installations are not overlooked in exchange for cheaper, self-monitored solutions, combining the expertise and innovation of CSL and their manufacturer partners, with the end-user preference for a Smartphone App and the added insurance requirement of ARC monitoring. “Installers already have access to signalling products that provide end-user Apps. CSL Connected is the only product to offer Smartphone Apps with reliable ARC Connectivity. With end-user convenience and a guaranteed response to an alarm, CSL Connected also discourages self-monitored systems that bypass ARCs,” explained Rob Evans, Sales Director at CSL.
