Fastlane Door Detective Protects SCIFs for IT Services Company

A Fortune 500 IT services company recently installed eight Door Detectives to help protect classified information within four Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facilities (SCIFs). Door Detectives are mounted on the walls of the hallway several feet in front of the SCIF door. In this position, they extend the perimeter of the SCIF as required by the CIA. Door Detective alarms any unauthorized approach to the SCIF providing early warning of an intrusion and allowing additional time for security to respond.


Door Detective forces authorization for each person and detect tailgaters and direction violations while minimizing false alarms. It is often used to better secure open doors but is effective in hallways as well.

Elevator Integration with Fastlane Turnstiles

If you’re looking for additional ways to improve security and traffic flow for your building lobby, Smarter Security offers elevator integration technology with select Fastlane optical turnstiles. With a screen mounted atop or inside the top of a pedestal, you can greet entrants by name and direct them to move towards a certain elevator bank.


With this integration, you can improve elevator efficiency to maximize traffic flow and also limit access to elevator banks to those who need access. Fastlane turnstiles have been integrated with elevators by Otis and KONE and several Fastlane customers are deploying this technology. Contact your salesperson for more information.

Federal Agency Deploys Suite of Smarter Outdoor Products

A federal agency recently deployed several Smarter Outdoor products to protect itself…from itself. In an unusual application, this agency secured an unfenced perimeter in order to detect if any employee is entering an area where he might be exposed to radiation from underground operations.


Four SmarterBeams are used to form a virtual perimeter surrounding the area and with precision optics and passive infrared technology alarm if anyone has passed into the danger zone. SmarterDVR 200 sends email alerts of the alarm to a nearby control center and directs one of two SmarterCam PTZ cameras to focus on the incident for attendant verification. Intelligent Smarter Outdoor products seamlessly integrate with one another to provide maximum protection.
