Orion supporting key partners, unveiling new technology at GSX in Atlanta

Come see Orion’s latest solutions in support of JCI, ASSA ABLOY, Alcatraz and SAFR

For Immediate Release

LACONIA, N.H.—U.S.-based security turnstile and technology company Orion Entrance Control is excited to be featuring its turnstile and technology solutions in support of some of our key partners exhibiting at GSX 2022 in Atlanta, Ga., Sept. 12-14., including JCI (Innovation Room, A404 – A410), ASSA ABLOY (booth #2343), Alcatraz (booth #3555) and SAFR (booth #3725).

In addition to our well-respected and widely used speed lanes, optical turnstiles and full height turnstiles, Orion will be featuring our newly developed security piggybacking and tailgating solution DoorGuard™, and our presence-detection sensing solution Constellation™ watch video here, with data delivered through the Orion Infinity™ software platform.

Orion’s DoorGuard™ sets the bar by harnessing LiDAR technology and point-cloud data in combination with Orion’s new DoorGuard™ Nebula inference engine™. DoorGuard™ reduces false positives and provides actionable data through Orion’s Infinity™ software platform for accurate people counting, mustering info, operational efficiencies, business intel, and more! Using customer feedback, DoorGuard™ has been rebuilt to include not only a better look and design, but also a powerful new Nebula Inference Engine™.

“Not only does it have a smaller, sleeker form factor, which I think we accomplished beautifully, but we also added the point-cloud data, where the sensor head has nearly three meters of data at door height, allowing us to make and infer intelligent decisions,” explained Orion CEO Steve Caroselli. “Building in the Nebula Inference Engine™ really came about because when we released early versions, people would do things that were drastically different, each with unique challenges, so we said let’s just build something – the Nebula Inference Engine™ – that we can teach and can learn.”

The Nebula Inference Engine™ allows Orion to program specific scenarios and use cases into the software, and share that with the entire DoorGuard™ ecosystem, allowing end users and systems integrators to achieve an extremely low false-alarm rate, as close to zero as possible.

“Our goal is 100 percent accuracy in our ability to detect tailgating,” added Caroselli. “As the engineers on my team always say, ‘How many unauthorized users are acceptable?’ The answer is none. We have solved tailgating with DoorGuard™.”

Overhead Design

Orion chose an overhead design approach because the existing “sensor mounted on a doorframe, or wall” unit that people are accustomed to buying for the last 30 years is flawed, allowing tailgating to still happen. In addition, DoorGuard™’s overhead design provides better data with our point-cloud technology and because of its greater field of view compared with other tailgating technology on the market that uses a door-mounted design.

“With those door units, the sensor can easily be blocked by one person standing in there while others walk through,” he explained. “By going overhead, with no video component, we have solved that perennial tailgating problem, and we are also providing a solution that is completely private and frictionless. What further differentiates us from the competition is the point cloud and LiDAR data, which provides phenomenal decision-making capability.”

How It Works

DoorGuard™ is powered by LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) technology to detect and ensure that every single individual passing the entry point has presented an authorized badge. If one badge is scanned and more than one person enters, DoorGuard™ can alert security of a tailgate using our Infinity™ software, or through our open API, or relay outputs based on the requirements of the facility.

The powerful DoorGuard™ Nebula Inference Engine™ is what helps to further differentiate this technology from the competition, as it can be taught over time using neural network training, allowing end users to tailor the technology to meet their specific requirements. DoorGuard™ can adapt to your specific needs, unlike anything on the market!

DoorGuard™ is universally compatible with any existing access control system, and fully integrates with Orion’s Infinity™ software platform. Infinity™ allows users to quickly address and respond to issues in real-time, on site, or remotely, saving valuable time and resources troubleshooting, all while providing real-time and actionable data on occupants in the building! Know who and where people are for effective and frictionless building control.
