2GIG and Linear are Named 2018 ESX Innovation Award Winners!

Nortek Security & Control, a global leader in smart connected devices and systems for residential, security, access control and digital health markets, today announced that the 2GIG® Stove & Grill Guard and the Linear® LDC0850 and LDC0852 Smart Garage Door Openers have been named 2018 ESX Innovation Award winners at the Electronic Security Expo (ESX) that kicks off this morning in Nashville, Tennessee.

“We are honored to have products recognized by the Electronic Security Expo judges,” said Bill Hensley, Sr. Director of Marketing at Nortek Security & Control. “The 2GIG Stove & Grill Guard and Linear Smart Garage Door Openers represent our commitment to innovative solutions that help our dealers deliver exceptional experience for their customers.”

The 2GIG Stove & Grill Guard is the first of its kind in the security industry. It gives homeowners an added peace-of-mind when using a stove or grill by notifying users of burners that have been left on accidentally, whether after cleaning, cooking, or socializing. Slim and sleek (2.2″ diameter, 0.21″ thickness), the Stove & Grill Guard sensor attaches easily to most common grill or stove knobs, and is water resistant for both indoor and outdoor use. Homeowners can input their own timing from once a burner has been turned on to when the notification will be sent to a smartphone or security panel. With patent-pending highly sensitive alarm circuit technology, false negatives are minimized.

The Linear LDC0850 and LDC0852 Smart Garage Door Openers allow for control and monitoring by up to ten authorized users via mobile device with the free Linear app. The units feature an ultra-quiet, energy-efficient, DC-powered motor that runs at an AC-equivalent speed. The smart technology provides monitoring and control anytime, and anywhere with Wi-Fi connectivity. A battery backup for added peace-of-mind is also included.

In addition to being named a winner, the 2GIG Stove & Grill Guard has been asked to join the ESX Innovation Awards ‘Tech Challenge’ to compete for the title of “Best of Show”—a head-to-head “Shark Tank®”-style competition, where the judges – “industry sharks” – will challenge each contestant to present why their new product or service is deserving of the title Best of Show. The winner will be announced as the recipient of the Best of Show Award on the show floor on Wednesday, June 20.

The ESX Innovation Awards is an industry competition that recognizes the most impactful and groundbreaking technologies for the electronic security and life safety industry.
