Elegant Optical Turnstile Named as One of the Top 100 Products of 2008
Austin, Texas – June 19, 2008

Smarter Security Systems, provider of intelligent entrance control and outdoor security solutions, announced today that its Fastlane GlassGate optical turnstile was recognized by Buildings magazine as a 2008 Editor’s Choice Top Product Pick. GlassGate won recognition in the Access Control category and is featured in the magazine’s June 2008 issue.

“We are honored to have GlassGate chosen by Buildings as a distinctive and innovative product in access control for buildings,” said Jeff Brown, President of Smarter Security Systems. “Fastlane GlassGate has become one of our best selling optical turnstiles because, with it, organizations can deploy a truly elegant and intelligent lobby security system that does not resemble Ft. Knox or a metro station.”

Throughout the year, the editorial staff of Buildings magazine builds a database of intriguing and innovative products and services to help its readers with their development, construction, modernization, management and operations responsibilities. The editors reviewed thousands of products and picked the top 100 products they felt were worthy of recognition as they stand out in their respective categories. The winning products were selected based on a number of factors: aesthetics, ease of use, durability/lifecycle, efficiency of applicability, universal appeal, sustainable/green elements, and more.

GlassGate accurately detects tailgating or other intrusions due to its Fastlane optical technology – a microprocessor running a neural network coupled with an infrared beam matrix. Matched with its imposing glass barrier, which serves as a physical and visual deterrent, GlassGate provides unsurpassed security to keep unauthorized persons from entering buildings. The streamlined pedestals and transparent nature of the glass provide a visual appeal enjoyed by architects and building owners alike.
