Vocus designed a unique “town-style” corporate headquarters to create a fun and productive workplace for its employees. Having a secure office in which to work was important as well so the company deployed two lanes of Fastlane GlassGate™ 200 in its main lobby to protect this primary entry point from intruders. The deterrence of the 4-foot high barriers and their “door-like” motion were valued, but the sleekness of the turnstile was a key factor in its selection as it fit into the vision for the new building.
Wanting to enhance access control at six perimeter doors used by employees, Vocus installed Door Detective™ CL at each door. Anyone attempting to sneak in or tailgate with an authorized employee is alarmed. The CL model was favored for its elegant design and status indicator lights. With Door Detective and Fastlane, Vocus Town has seamless security with style.
Visit us at ASIS; See Upgraded Fastlane IP Capability
In two weeks, we will be on the floor at ASIS in booth #2707 and we invite you to stop in to demo our entry control solutions. We’ll have a number of Fastlane turnstiles on display as well as our Door Detective so you can see what complete door security looks like. We trust you’ll agree as you walk the floor, that Fastlane looks and performs better than the rest.
At ASIS we will also unveil the latest release of Fastlane Connect™, a product that puts your Fastlane turnstiles on the network. Available in GlassGate 150 today, Connect allows diagnosis and control of turnstiles from any authorized internet-connected device. The cost and performance benefits make this worth seeing so please stop by. A free pass to exhibits is here.
Site Certification Extends Warranty Two Years
Site Certification & Training is an important service and recommended to maximize the performance of Fastlane optical turnstiles. A trained technician will inspect the Fastlane hardware and quality check the installation. Perhaps more valuable is the on-site training for technicians in troubleshooting and repair and training for end users in care and use of the turnstiles.
Make note – certified sites receive a free 2-year extended warranty, leading to 3 years of coverage, the longest in the industry. This great offer builds on the service benefits of lower downtime, fewer technical issues, and reduced lifetime costs. Talk to your sales rep for more.

Solar Farm Protected by SmarterFence
In the Midwest, a new solar farm has a great investment in solar panels and important green power to provide its customers. At risk for copper theft as well, the power generation site selected SmarterFence to protect the perimeter of its operations. The nearly 10,000-foot perimeter will have advanced intrusion detection to complement the deterrence of its 8-foot high fence.
SmarterFence is a fiber optic fence sensor that performs well in this environment because it is immune from lightning strikes and electromagnetic interference. The customer also liked the reliability and simplicity of the solution. SmarterBeam™, a passive infrared motion detector, is part of the solution and will alarm incursions through a sliding gate.
