Solution Overview

AXIS Tailgating Detector helps overcome the fact that most automated access control systems at places such as membership clubs and gyms, do not control how many people at a time are allowed to enter the building. The application helps prevent unauthorized entry.


AXIS Tailgating Detector is designed to detect and notify if more than one person enters within a set time interval. Alarm notifications include email or an audio output. You can use it to prevent abuse of membership cards and employee cards, thus minimizing losses and the possibility of theft. It can also save you money by eliminating the need for security guards at entrances.


AXIS Tailgating Detector runs embedded in a ceiling-mounted network camera. It is an automated system that provides two-way counting in real time. The software is built on advanced and proven algorithms from Cognimatics, whose programs have led in retail analytics for more than a decade. Offering high-speed execution and low memory requirements, the software has been installed in thousands of cameras worldwide.
