Smarter Security’s New Optical Turnstile Technology Tackles ‘Sidegating’

The Fastlane Glassgate 155 turnstiles feature new optical technology to prevent two people from attempting unauthorized side-by-side entry.

AUSTIN, Texas — Smarter Security, an intelligent entrance controls company, announces new optical technology that reduces the risk of “sidegating” when two people attempt unauthorized side-by-side entry through a turnstile.

Sidegating is a growing security issue as changing regulations and customer demands for increased pedestrian and wheelchair user comfort dictate the need for wider turnstiles, according to the company. If a lane is wide enough to comfortably fit a wheelchair, it is also wide enough to fit two pedestrians side-by-side.

Smarter Security’s Fastlane Glassgate 155 turnstiles feature new optical technology to prevent sidegating from happening by utilizing an intelligent infrared matrix powered by neural network algorithms to sense who or what is going through the turnstile in real-time and make thousands of calculations per second to determine if entry should be authorized.

The system is said to be able to distinguish between people and objects to minimize nuisance alarms, and process unsurpassed throughputs of up to one person per second.

“Security teams must approach insider threats and collusion with a layered security strategy that starts at the front lobby. This innovative optical turnstile technology available in the Fastlane Glassgate 155 is the first of its kind to identify and alert when sidegating is occurring,” says Jeff Brown, CEO of Smarter Security. “Our customers who need those wider lanes also need to have the confidence that only authorized people are coming into the building. This breakthrough reinforces how far ahead Fastlane technology is, and why it has been number one for much of the past decade.”
