Open Security & Safety Alliance at GSX 2021 Orlando

“Driven by OSSA” Hardware on Display


The Open Security & Safety Alliance (OSSA®), an industry body comprised of stakeholders from all facets within the security, safety and building automation space, is proud to have member companies from around the world represented at GSX 2021 later this month.




OSSA member companies embrace the Alliance’s philosophy to open up the safety and security category. Within OSSA, (device and component) manufacturers, (VMS) software developers, system integrators, SoC manufacturers and app developers are working together to solve common industry issues, therewith enabling innovation and increasing market and business opportunities.


This results in the formation of a virtually frictionless, platform-based Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem where harmonized, open, and trustworthy devices allow for flexible and fit-for-purpose add-on innovation from third parties.


Industry leaders already are bringing to market “Driven by OSSA” devices, which can be seamlessly used in combination with third-party software applications through an online app store by OSSA member company Security & Safety Things. This forum is one of several building blocks of IoT infrastructure specified by OSSA – in support of uniting demand and supply in this open market.


Stop by the following (founding) member booths at GSX 2021 to see and discuss OSSA-inspired technologies:


  • Founding member Bosch Building Technologies – Booth 1315: Experience some of the first “Driven by OSSA” products based on the INTEOX open camera platform. Read the announcement here.
