Best in Show 2014: SV3 Examined

Author: Brian Rhodes, Published on Apr 10, 2014

ISC West 2014's top new product prize went to relative unknown Building Intelligence's SV3 Entry Management platform. A software offering, SV3 lacks the straightforward appeal of a video camera, door lock, or (apparently) a bullet proof bookshelf, and instead ties existing 3rd party systems and processes together into a single system.

In this note, we unravel the company's flagship offering, including pricing and positioning, examining its best and worst fits.
