Door Detective CL

It is rewarding to be selected to play a part in the security efforts that protect not just this company and its employees, but also its thousands of customers.

Smarter Security, Inc., provider of premium, innovative entrance control and outdoor security solutions, today announced a financial institution in the Midwest recently ordered Door Detective® CL to help secure corporate data centers. Aspiring to tighten physical security to support cyber security objectives, the customer acknowledged and addressed the vulnerability of the open, access-controlled door. Prior experience with Fastlane® turnstiles motivated this firm to entrust Smarter Security with this door security need.

“Banking and financial firms remain among the top targets for cyber attacks, leading the industry veterans to carefully consider security vulnerabilities and smartly address them,” said Jeff Brown, CEO of Smarter Security. “It is rewarding to be selected to play a part in the security efforts that protect not just this company and its employees, but also its thousands of customers. Door Detective is an elegant and easy solution to a widespread and little-understood problem in access control.”

The financial institution ordered twelve units of Door Detective CL from Smarter Security to deploy on doorway entrances to multiple data centers. In a proactive move to strengthen security before a breach, the company chose the CL model because it values high security and wanted the top-of-the-line model to work together with biometric readers and two-factor authentication. Door Detective sounds a local alarm and flashes red lights if someone tries to enter a data center without presenting proper credentials. Twenty-four-seven, on-site security staff is notified of the intrusion and responds to assess and contain the threat. This order follows prior installations of Fastlane optical turnstiles to secure the banking firm’s office building lobby entrances.

Door Detective from Smarter Security enhances access control at doorways by forcing every person passing through to present a valid credential and move only in the authorized direction. It is designed to eliminate the threats of tailgaters, people sneaking in as someone leaves the secure area, and piggybackers who are authorized but don’t present their credential. Door Detective comes in three models with advanced intelligence to minimize false alarms from items pushed, pulled, or carried. Door Detective CL is the premium model with elegant aesthetics and status lights to provide users feedback.
