Two industry authorities come together for a technology convergence like no other. ReconaSense access control and Garrett Metal Detectors partner to showcase Risk-Adaptive Metal Detection for a greater security solution to protect the masses while streamlining the screening process for authorized protectors.

ReconaSense is an access control platform known for its core strengths of risk adaptivity, data unification, and ease of integration. Putting this on exemplary display, the platform has empowered Garrett Metal Detectors to enhance its scope of intelligence and technological capabilities.

At the heart of this integration lies the ability to dynamically adjust access permissions and screening sensitivity based on real-time data. Here’s how it works: With risk-based integrations, these systems are not just communicating – but truly collaborating. ReconaSense seamlessly adapts access permissions based on clearance level, differentiating between authorized and unauthorized individuals, while Garrett Metal Detectors can focus on flagging weapons from true offenders, subjecting only the latter to heightened security response.

Clayton Brown, Executive Vice President of ReconaSense, highlights the significance of this partnership: “Risk-adaptive metal detection is an advanced security solution designed to adapt the device’s screening protocols based on the perceived threat level of an individual cardholder.”

In environments where varying levels of authorization are common, such as airports with TSA agents, law enforcement officers, or air marshals with licenses to carry, this dynamic adaptation ensures that entry is expedited for authorized personnel. The “Authorized Exception” created becomes a lifesaver in situations like active shooter responses, where lockdown occurs for unauthorized weapons, but allows law enforcement to pass.

The “good guy with a gun” can now pass through checkpoints swiftly, without causing delays or withholding security personnel for extra screening. This eliminates false alarms of authorized concealed carry personnel, while reducing costs of investigating false alarms at metal-detection checkpoints. This efficiency means that authorized personnel can get to their duties much more efficiently, improving overall security response times and ensuring a smoother experience for everyone involved. In scenarios where levels of authorization vary, the ability to maintain efficiency is a game changer, making this collaboration a true win-win for all parties involved.

Witness this impressive technology convergence firsthand by visiting GSX Dallas Booth #2733 from September 11-13. Don’t miss your chance to see how these two industry leaders are revolutionizing security screening processes and setting the stage for a safer, more efficient future.
