Boon Edam launches anti-piggybacking solution

Company’s new StereoVision system to be on display at ISC West


Lillington, NC – Boon Edam Inc, the leading manufacturer of security entrance solutions in North America, announced plans today to demonstrate a new anti-piggybacking technology at the ISC West exhibition on April 6th-8th in Las Vegas, Nevada. The new system will be installed in the Tourlock revolving security door on display in Booth # 10034 to allow live demonstrations of the sophisticated sensors and their ability to stop piggybacking attempts into buildings.

The new StereoVision system merges two types of sensing technologies, optical and near infrared light, to monitor the compartment of a revolving security door or portal. The two technologies work together to determine displacement and distance by measuring the time it takes light to travel from the instrument to an object and back. The new system can accurately tell the difference between two people and one person holding a box or luggage to minimize false rejections. The near infrared light sensor is not affected by sunlight or reflections, which eliminates any environmental impairment of the system at locations near the exterior of buildings.
