BodyGuardz, a local Utah tech company, won a 2020 CES Editors' Choice Award for its Over-The-Door Camera.

The award is given to the company with the best products that consumers will want to buy in 2020, according to a press release.

BodyGuardz aims to provide home security for renters and others who prefer portable protection while at home and on the go.

“We have taken an innovative approach to smart home products that provide the same peace of mind offered by existing products in this space with added convenience and portability that consumers today are looking for,” said Kirk Feller, CEO of BodyGuardz.

Portability and flexibility are top of mind for today’s consumers and we are excited to make this category accessible to a whole new demographic of renters and travelers.

According to a press release, the Lehi-based company offers three portable smart home products, including a portable security camera, portable over-door camera, and portable emergency unit:
