Behind the beautiful exterior, the infrared matrix that drives the decision to authorise entry makes thousands of calculations per second based on speed of passage, luggage being carried or pulled, distance to the pedestrian behind and direction of movement. It is this intelligent decision-making that eliminates false alarms, improves compliance and strengthens effective building security. This technology was developed in house by our engineers and is the key to why Fastlane products are a first choice for so many blue chip companies, architects and specifiers.

Fastlane Connect Applications

The Fastlane Finder Tool allows users to select a lane and enable Fastlane Connect functionality. Download our Fastlane Finder Tool.

Providing a live stream of the security lanes connected to your Fastlane Connect control system. Enabling you to create time-stamped video footage of any security breaches or events which are either automatically saved following a turnstile alarm sounding, or manually recorded if you notice a scenario that is occurring before the turnstile is being accessed.

Enabling companies to quickly access real time building counts. Particularly useful for buildings which have public access lobbies, with shopping areas or restaurants, and then entry controlled office spaces above.  FastCount can be integrated with optical turnstiles or Door Detective at entry points, set to ‘open access’ and then entry card turnstiles further into the building to ensure only authorised entry beyond that point.

FastCmd (Fast Command) is a Windows based app which allows authorised users to control and monitor their Fastlane turnstiles from a convenient Windows PC or Tablet connected to the same network.

Providing an alternative to the Multilane Touchscreen Controller, FastCmd communicates using IP and can monitor and control up to 63 lanes of Fastlane turnstiles if all are connected to the same network, with eight lanes presented on screen at any one time. Lane displays mimic the installation layout for ease of identification, with entry and exit mode selection and alarms all displayed live on screen.
