About Smarter Security

In a world of ever-present threats, Smarter Security provides innovative, top-of-the-line entrance control solutions to help organizations protect their people and assets.

Why We're Smarter

For almost thirty years we’ve offered the absolute best in Entrance Control, and more recently Access Control, protecting many of the world’s most iconic buildings and over half of the Fortune 100. Unlike others, all of our intelligent solutions leverage advanced neural network technology which empowers us to solve the most complex security challenges.

Better Technology

Fastlane turnstiles “think” in real-time, utilizing an infrared beam matrix and multiple microprocessors with neural network programming. The system analyzes patterns when the beams are interrupted, so it can accurately position the size, shape, and speed of individual entities. This intelligence also helps discriminate between people and objects such as suitcases, and can uniquely detect ”sidegating,” side-by-side collusion attempts.

SmarterLobby applies advanced neural network technology to our Fastlane turnstiles resulting in the world’s only intelligent turnstiles that consider context and other data before granting access. What do you wish your turnstiles knew before letting someone in your building?

ReconaSense is the industry’s only risk-adaptive physical access control solution that applies advanced neural network technology to detect anomalous behaviors. It automatically adapts access permissions per our customers’ prescribed responses. What do you wish your doors knew before letting someone enter? ReconaSense applies this intelligence to more complex, often unique security challenges such as proactively detecting Insider Threats. What risks keep you up at night?

Smarter Security uniquely solves the world’s most complex security challenges.

Faster Throughput

The system can track multiple entities in the lane, so it doesn’t need to wait for one authorized user to pass through before a second authorized person can go. The result? Much faster throughput rates and reduced traffic buildup during peak periods.

Safer Operation

Our technology operates at a higher safety standard. We initiated the UL2593 standard, which is now the industry standard for turnstile electrical safety and efficiency. Fastlane’s multiple microprocessors can better analyze factors like visitor location, size, and movement patterns to decide whether the barriers should close. This minimizes the chance of barrier contact and allows barriers to close tightly behind authorized users to block unwanted entries.

Environmental Impact

Fastlane turnstiles are built with a focus on responsible manufacturing and generating the least amount of waste possible. Fastlane has an environmental management system that meets the ISO 14001:2015 standard, and aims to create low-energy-consumption units that can be efficiently recycled after the end of their long product lifecycle. As low-voltage systems, Fastlanes are chosen for many LEED certified buildings because they provide customers significant energy and cost savings over the long life of the product.


The Fastlane manufacturer Integrated Design Ltd (IDL) developed a quality management system that was first accredited to ISO 9001 over 18 years ago, and continues to be approved to each successive revision of the standard.

Currently working with ISO 9001:2015, the refined quality system provides the means to monitor and improve procedures; which ultimately supplies Fastlane customers with what they want, when they want it.
