Dowley Security Systems, Inc., a leading provider of turnkey electronic security and technology integration solutions, announced today they have been awarded this year’s Security Innovation gold medal award by Security Technology Executive magazine. Dowley is recognized for designing a custom integrated security application while preserving the aesthetics of the architecture surrounding the Devon Energy Tower in Oklahoma City.
“It is with great humility that Dowley receives this prestigious award from Security Technology Executive”, said James F. Brown, CEO of Dowley. “We are proud to be recognized as a true security integrator in every sense of the word. Innovation is the ultimate form of integration, and at Dowley we set about each day to meld technology, design, people and purpose. It is not enough to competently follow a given specification if you aim to satisfy all of the stakeholders on a project of this magnitude. Dowley’s people create the best possible outcomes by devising world class security solutions which are positively a cut above the rest.”
The Devon project combined 12 different security-related technologies, working together in a single, integrated system for security command and control of all the company’s facilities across North America. Collaborating with vendor partners such as AMAG Technology, AXIS Communications, BOSCH Security Systems and CSC, Dowley's turnkey security technology solutions incorporated the installation of perimeter security, access control systems, networked surveillance systems, and flexible information technology.
“We are pleased and proud to be recognized for our work to create a secure headquarters for our company, a safe workplace for our employees and a welcoming destination for visitors,” Kent Chrisman, director of corporate security for Devon said. “It has truly been a team effort, involving the project’s developers, designers and builders, working in collaboration with Devon’s management team and our security integration partner, Dowley Security Systems.”
The STE Innovation Awards honors the best and brightest in innovative uses of security technology, and recognizes the lead vendor, integrator and the end user, and honors gold, silver, and bronze award winners. Each project was judged by a panel of security industry experts that included well-established consultants and members of the industry press.
