Austin, Texas – November 17, 2009

Smarter Security Systems, provider of intelligent entrance control and outdoor security solutions, was named by the Austin Business Journal as one of the fastest-growing private companies in central Texas.

“We are once again honored to be named among the top performing companies in the Austin area,” said Jeff Brown, President of Smarter Security Systems. “Last year was a record year for the company as we received large orders from the federal government and commercial enterprises seeking to improve their lobby security. We are grateful for our customers who have made Fastlane the leading brand of optical turnstiles and are proud of our employees who work together to extend the company’s success and make a difference for our customers.”

Smarter Security Systems is headquartered in Austin, Texas and has sales offices in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Houston.
