IEE to debut tailgate detector at ASIS 2010

Luxembourg/Auburn Hills MI – Sensing specialist IEE will present its innovative access control solution, the Tailgate Detector, at the ASIS security show this October (booth 4146).

The Tailgate Detector works with security systems by intercepting the signal emitted from the ID reader (badge system, RFID, biometrics) and determining the status of the access point (open or closed). The sensor then establishes whether a single individual is attempting entry, and in the event of dual or unauthorized entry, triggers an alarm or locks the door.

As the Tailgate Detector is an overhead-mounted sensor, it provides a minimal impact solution, complimenting or even eliminating the need for barriers and gates. Using 3D MLI Sensor technology that is robust to high traffic, low/no lighting, dynamic lighting and variable temperatures, the Tailgate Detector is more reliable than passive infrared imager, scanner or video based 2D systems currently on the market. The system can also be upgraded with additional functionalities such as people counting, occupancy monitoring and the detection of luggage left behind.

The Tailgate Detector comes in two product varieties which will both be demonstrated at the ASIS show: TDflex for tailgate detection at standard, swinging, sliding and virtual doors and optical or mechanical turnstiles; and TDtrap, which monitors individual access to 2-door access points such as mantraps, airlocks and transfer gates.
