Myfox, the European smart home security expert, is pleased to announce the new Myfox Security System has received an iF DESIGN AWARD 2015 and is among the winners of the renowned iF label.

For over 60 years, the iF DESIGN AWARD has been recognized the world over as a label of design excellence. The iF logo is an internationally established symbol identifying outstanding achievements in design.

The number of competitors in the iF DESIGN AWARD 2015 competition was tremendous: the international high-profile jury assessed almost 5,000 entries from 53 countries.

Setting a new standard in home security, the Myfox Security System was designed to provide a simple, reliable and aesthetic solution to protect one's home against break-in attempts.

"We are incredibly proud that our design has been recognized by the prestigious iF design institute. The 'Building Technology' category, in which we were selected as a winner, is particularly competitive and thus it is an even greater honor to have received this award," said Alain Pakiry, Managing Director of Myfox. "Throughout the product design process, we centered on user experience. We wanted to ensure that our product is not only functional in deterring intruders but also intuitive to use and can elegantly and discretely be integrated into users' homes and lives."

Traditional security systems only react once a door or window is opened, allowing intruders time to enter a home and steal valuables or precious objects. Thanks to patented IntelliTAG technology, the Myfox Security System can recognize a potential break-in before it happens, sound the alarm and keep the intruder out.

Modern and minimalist, the system showcases a reassuring curved design to differentiate it from traditional home security devices. Constructed of ceramic white plastic, brushed aluminum and other high-quality materials, it integrates seamlessly and elegantly into a home's decor.

Completely intuitive, the system can be controlled from anywhere via a smartphone app. It also offers automatic user recognition that allows users to keep track of who's coming and going.

Myfox solutions contain additional innovations in home security. The Myfox Security Camera is the first and only camera to feature a remote controlled privacy shutter that guarantees unwanted image viewing or recording. The Myfox Security System introduces the notion of "collaborative security" with features that allow users to assign monitoring rights to their trusted circle of family and friends. And, in cases of WiFi outage, the patented MyfoxAround network relays to another unit to continue transmitting notifications and alerts.

Myfox was honored along with the other winners during the iF design award night Friday, February 27, 2015 at BMW Welt in Munich. The iF design award night is the design event of the year. Some 2000 guests from the international design world, from the media and from business and politics celebrated the award winners.
