PathMinder is a world leader in optical turnstiles.
From a technical standpoint, we are the world
leader; our detection technology is clearly superior
to other approaches in the industry. From the very beginning,
our approach has always been unique and straightforward:
build our product around the strongest technology, work
with our customers to make the product integrate elegantly
into their sites, and innovate, innovate, innovate.
We recognize that a security product needs to be amazing
to be acceptable; bad products get discarded quickly.
Imagine if a turnstile had a 1% false alarm rate; looks
good on paper, but what happens when 3000 people enter
and leave every day? That's 60 false alarms a day. Soon
after installation, the security staff will naturally
dismiss all alarms ("oh, those things go off
all the time"), giving intruders the opportunity
to slip by. The customer is saddled with an expensive
At PathMinder, we are eager to avoid such scenarios. We
test our hardware and algorithms extensively. Each unit
we ship goes through a demanding burn-in process. Our
service personnel are top-notch. Our customers demand
PathMinder turnstiles are installed all over the world,
in high-profile facilities belonging to national and regional
governments, corporate offices of the Fortune 500,
and major financial and educational institutions (including
one of the world's most recognized stock exchanges). Our
customers demand a solution without compromise: it has
to be fast, easy-to-use, and reliable. PathMinder delivers
on all counts.
We were the first company to offer a 12 sensor detection
array. The first to offer a 24 sensor detection array.
The first to offer 1/4" tailgate detection. The first to offer a detection matrix (using 12 or 24 sensors to monitor 48 or 96 detection beams). Our low
false alarm rate is the envy of all our competitors. Our
oval housing, introduced in 1995, forced the entire industry
to re-think its approach to turnstile design. More recently,
we introduced optical turnstiles with retractable barriers
that are the first and only in the industry that meet
ADA regulations when spaced 32" apart (instead of
the usual 36"). And, always improving, we have some
incrementally better products and features coming soon--and
a few revolutionary ones that will upset the industry
Helping our clients add real security to their
buildings is our persistent goal. Technology, drive, and
service are how we get there.
PathMinder. Real speed. Real security.
