Backstreet Surveillance announced it has been awarded the prestigious Utah Best of State award for Science and Technology Inventor.

Best of State is Utah’s gold standard of awards that recognizes outstanding individuals and businesses who achieve excellence in their field. Backstreet Surveillance received this award for its M5 Universal Security Camera Mounting Bracket.

“Innovation is in the DNA of Backstreet Surveillance, and we are very grateful to be named as a Best of State winner in the Science and Technology category,” said Scott McQuarrie, CEO of Backstreet Surveillance.

“Backstreet provides easy-to-use pre-packaged kits as well as free expert surveillance designs for homes and businesses. The Best of State award shines a spotlight on our commitment and ongoing dedication to the safety and security of America’s businesses, homes and communities.”

Since its inception, Backstreet has been focused on filling a gap in the video surveillance market. It provides extremely high-quality equipment for those who want to install their own system when and where they want.

Each order comes with everything required for a fast and easy installation. If the customer needs help with either designing the best surveillance plan including where cameras should be positioned to maximize security or if they need technical support, Backstreet’s award-winning, U.S.-based experts are on hand with free lifetime technical support.

Backstreet developed the M5 to mount any stationary security camera to a wall or ceiling in minutes, regardless of whether the camera is from Backstreet or a different brand. Designed for indoor or outdoor use, the M5 overcomes all the problems of mounting a camera to brick, concrete, stucco or other construction materials.

One of the added values of the M5 mounting bracket is its utility in swapping out different types of cameras. This may become more important in the wake of recent FCC actions and the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). On June 17, 2021, the FCC unanimously voted to prohibit new authorizations of NDAA-banned telecommunications products out of China including some of the world’s largest video camera and component manufacturers.

McQuarrie said, “Recent regulations and legislation could mean, due to security concerns, it may be illegal to install or even turn on a camera made by certain companies. As such, as many as 60 percent of security cameras currently installed in the U.S. may need to be swapped out with NDAA-compliant systems. The M5 Universal Security Camera Mounting Bracket makes that change a simple task.”

The Best of State Awards were created in 2003 to recognize exceptional individuals, organizations and businesses in Utah. Best of State candidates are evaluated by a panel of 100 judges based on three criteria: achievement in the field of endeavor; innovation or creativity in approaches, techniques, methods or processes; and contribution to improving the quality of life in Utah.

Since 2012 Backstreet Surveillance, Inc. has been a trusted industry leader. Backstreet provides high performance, easy to install, do-it-yourself security camera systems throughout the entire United States, backed by a complete 5-year warranty from the date of delivery.
