Newton Security Introduces New, Single Door
Anti-Tailgating Detection System Based Upon
Stereo Vision Technology

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON - Newton Security, Inc., the global leader in the supply of machine vision, single person sensing and tracking systems, recently introduced a new, single-door anti-tailgating detection system named Entry Vision. The new system, based on advanced stereo vision, is designed to compete in both performance and price in the congested field of related single door security devices that still rely on decades-old light beam technology.

The Entry Vision product is a tailgate detection and direction control system that adds an additional layer of security to an existing access controlled single door, passage way or corridor. The sophisticated detection system uses stereo vision and proprietary Newton software to admit only one person into a restricted area for each valid authorization, while allowing carts or luggage to accompany them without an alarm. The technology enables the system to perform in full ambient light or in total darkness.

"Stereo machine vision is the best technology available for single person detection in security applications." said Rob Wheeler, President of Newton Security Inc. "The new Entry Vision addresses a market segment that has been serviced for too long by out-dated photo cell and beam technologies. Entry Vision delivers additional security to access controlled entryways but without the frequent false alarms that occur with many of the other technologies on the market," Wheeler concluded.

The Entry Vision system consists of a pair of low-profile modules that attach easily to a standard metal door frame or to the wall. The Detector module houses three tracking cameras and the Emitter module encloses a strip of infrared (IR) illuminators. In addition to integrating seamlessly with existing access control systems, Entry Vision enables owners and integrators to exercise wide choice in connecting the type of output response devices that would be most appropriate: a flashing light, an audible alarm, initiating video recording, or sending a silent signal to security control. The system is adaptable to most common settings such as: restricted office areas, high value parts storage cages and exterior doors.
