The award honors organizations delivering software or hardware solutions that enable the advancement of the smart home and building industry.
The Combo Box offers video, security, safety, panic alerts, energy management and automation solutions for home and business, including an intelligent hub that adds security, local storage and manages all connected devices on the system, and four wireless cameras with motion detection and night vision features.
