New Anti-Tailgating Product from Optex

Author: Brian Rhodes, Published on Oct 06, 2015

Tailgating is one of the toughest and most dangerous problems access control systems face.

However, there are significant limitations. In this note, we examine the technology, application, pricing and the key strengths and weaknesses of the offering.
