Through an exclusive licensing agreement, Orion Entrance Control, is now offering a unique new entrance control system that enhances security and monitoring at any doorway within a building where access is a security concern.
The new DoorGuard system, which utilizes LIDAR (light detection and ranging) technology, a key component in autonomous motor vehicles, is being unveiled at the ISC West in Las Vegas on April 11-13.
Orion is a leading U.S. owned and operated manufacturer and global provider of optical speed lane turnstile solutions.
The core component of the DoorGuard system is the S3 sensor developed by Quanergy, the first to patent solid state LIDAR, and a Platinum Award Winner in the 2017 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program for Best Perimeter Protection Solution.
Orion has been selected as the preferred S3 vendor for the security sector.
This small solid-state sensor is ideal for applications requiring object detection at long range including drones, intelligent robotics, security, smart spaces and industrial automation.
In drones, payload and battery runtime benefit greatly from these compact sensors.

DoorGuard leapfrogs existing technology for accuracy and performance and can be added into current security systems.
The DoorGuard unit mounts above a door and integrates to the access system and Orion’s proprietary Infinity software.
The LIDAR smart sensing technology generates a half million data points per second with signal processors that calculate the Time-of-Flight (TOF) of each light pulse.
The end result is significantly more accuracy that protects points of entry from unauthorized access.
“We are very pleased to be the preferred vendor for Quanergy’s S3 sensor and are using this disruptive technology as a key component of our new DoorGuard system,” explained Stephen Caroselli, CEO of Orion.
“This enabled us to build a “better mousetrap” that is a significant upgrade from the beam-based systems currently in use.”
“It is the most effective, easiest to install and affordable system on the market to control access entrances and exits.”
“We can overlay this on anyone’s system to provide a higher level of security at about 30 percent of the cost of other systems.”
The solid-state technology communicates directly with Orion’s chip technology and software that links to perimeter doors and stairwells.
It is designed to detect one credit per person and deter common ways other systems can be tricked to allow unauthorized access.
It can detect people trying to enter a building by following someone very closely (tailgating) and can set off warnings if a door is open for too long or has been propped open.
Additionally, in emergency situations when access points need to be open, DoorGuard can accurately count the number of authorized individuals who pass through, enabling first responders to know if people still remain in buildings or sections where there is limited access.
“Accuracy in a security system is critical,” Caroselli added. “Today’s solutions typically feature a row of sensors secured onto a door frame and they can be very inaccurate.
“Other more accurate alternatives are more cumbersome, more expensive and do not get to the level of accuracy the LIDAR technology can offer.
“We’re excited to roll out this disruptive technology at the ISC show.”
