Electronic Security Expo (ESX), in partnership with Security Systems News (SSN), has named Switch™ Tech as the 2020 ESX Innovation Award winner in the category of Access Control. An independent panel of judges chose Switch™ Tech for this honor based on criteria that considered innovation, end-user experience, and response to market need.
dormakaba Switch Tech Reimagines Access Control at the Core
The new Switch Tech platform extends electronic access control to applications previously not practical by offering a digital replacement for mechanical keys and mechanical small format interchangeable cores, commonly referred to as SFICs. The initial product to feature this platform, Switch™ Core, will work wherever SFIC’s do, including cylindrical, mortise and other locks by BEST, Sargent®, Yale®, Corbin Russwin®, Schlage® and more. Switch Core is ideal for retrofitting electronic control into existing doors on interior rooms, closets, cabinets and cases, extending access control further than previously possible.
This is now the third award win for Switch™ Tech in 2020. Earlier this year, Switch™ Tech was selected as a Red Dot Award winner for outstanding Product Design, and won the Security Industry Association (SIA) New Product Showcase Award.
“We’re so pleased to deliver these award platforms and recognition to worthy technology providers that will help our members improve their businesses and better serve their customers,” said George De Marco, ESX chairman.
