Smarter Security Systems Launches Latest Tailgate Detection System for Doors

Door Detective Compact is Smaller, More Elegant, and Priced to Enable More Users to Upgrade from the Access-Controlled Door to Complete Door Security
Austin, Texas – March 22, 2011

Smarter Security Systems, provider of intelligent entrance control and outdoor security solutions, today announced the availability of its Door Detective Compact. Door Detective completes door security on access-controlled doors by protecting the open door from tailgaters and other unauthorized entries. The new Compact model improves upon the current Door Detectives by being smaller and more elegant and is offered at a substantially lower price point. Along with several new Fastlane optical turnstile models, Door Detective Compact will be available to demo at ISC West in Las Vegas.

Door Detective Compact is notably smaller than existing models and the “head units” visibly mounted to the doorway are made of stainless steel, making them more attractive and more durable. Prominent on the Compact are LED lane status indicator lights on each head unit that flash green or red to convey authorization or alarm. This makes it clear to the user, security officers, or others nearby if there is a violation. The right-side head unit has room for a proximity or iClass® reader to be mounted within it. This removes reader hardware from the doorway which improves the overall aesthetics of the entrance.

“The number and variety of customers ordering Door Detective has surged over the last two years as organizations recognize the threat of the open door and seek to rely less on everyday employees for their security enforcement,” stated Jeff Brown, President of Smarter Security Systems. “We are excited about the Compact model and have seen similar enthusiasm from the market as we have previewed it at events prior to this launch. As important as access control is, it is crucial to recognize that a gaping hole exists in the security for the most likely path into a facility once a secure door is opened. Door Detective seals this hole.”

Door Detective completes door security on an access-controlled door by protecting the open door and forcing authorization for every person. It detects tailgaters and direction violations and facilitates anti-passback enforcement for facilities with layers of access control to better safeguard particular areas. Upon alarm, Door Detective can trigger cameras, lock adjacent doors, or sound a remote alarm to initiate a security response.

Smarter Security Systems is in booth no.12101 at ISC West at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada from April 6-8, 2011. Door Detective Compact will be available for demonstration as will multiple new Fastlane optical turnstiles used for anti-tailgating and entrance control in building lobbies.
