TextSpeak Enters Security Market and Wins ‘Judges Choice’ and ‘Best New Mass Notification Product’ at International Security Convention ISC West
ISC West, Las Vegas USA – April 6th 2016 –The International Security Conference & Exposition – also known as ISC West – is the largest event in the U.S. for the physical security industry, covering Access Control, Alarms & Monitoring, Biometrics, IP Security, Video Surveillance / CCTV, Networked Security Products and more. TextSpeak exhibited the full range of earBridge™ products for the first time to the security industry and came away with top honors at the show.
At ISC West, TextSpeak introduced TTS-CE-US, the industry’s first cellular enabled text to speech amplifier. This new addition to the earBridge™ family transfers SMS emergency cellular text messages directly to endpoint speakers and paging systems. Simply send an SMS message to the pre-assigned telephone number and the earBridge amplifier speaks the text.
Each year at ISC West, the Security Industry Association (SIA) New Product Showcase program recognizes winners in several product and service categories. TextSpeak’s new TTS-CE-US Cellular Amplifier won the ‘Best New Product in the Emergency Communication/Mass Notification Systems’ category, and the ‘Judges Choice Award’, only awarded to a single product out of all the entries.
TextSpeak President, Nancy Wolfe said “We feel the Cellular Amplifier is an industry first for deployment simplicity, effectiveness and access for institutions who are challenged to find affordable mass notification solutions and we are very proud that judges were so positive about its potential in security applications. In the words of one of the judges, ‘it provides mass notification for the masses’, which clearly states one of our main design goals.”
