Access Controls Offer Improved Security


4/9/2019

Orion Entrance Control, Inc. (Orion) announces the new design and functionality of the Orion Secure DoorGuard, a high accuracy tailgate detection system using solid state LiDAR technology. The distinctive architecture includes fully integrated housing and mounting systems, developed to provide extremely easy access for installation, upgrades and maintenance. LED indicators for status, alarms and verified access add to its sleek design and efficacy.

“This solid-state LiDAR technology allows us to provide a contemporary solution to the age-old security risk of tailgating. The universal compatibility with access control systems makes DoorGuard extremely versatile for both occupancy counting and tailgate detection and when used in conjunction with Orion’s Infinity Remote Lane Control software and SpeedLane turnstile systems we provide a comprehensive entrance control solution,” said Tom Elliott, Director of Global Business Development at Orion.

The high performance, smart sensing system generates thousands of Time of Flight (TOF) distance points per second then utilizes this data to create machine learning algorithms specific for entry and security doors. The solution allows the detector to determine the difference between additional individuals vs. bags, strollers, etc.This solid-state sensor has no moving or vibrating parts and the ability to be quickly programmed to adjust to various size doors and heights. The benefits are a smaller sensor, lower power and easy to use and install.

“The DoorGuard system addresses several shortcomings of previous solutions: accuracy, ease and cost of installation, durability and aesthetics. We know these improvements will be appreciated by end users and integrators alike, and we’ve also kept in mind the architect and consultant communities,” Elliott said.

DoorGuard Features Include:

  • Solid state LiDAR sensors to detect size of user
  • Detects tailgating and piggybacking
  • Ability to classify complex details
  • Works independently and in the background
  • Programmed for high security and high throughput
  • Distinguishes between individuals and objects
