Barbecan Announces 6th Patent for Secure Entrance that stops Active Shooter and Terrorist Attacks


Operation of the Barbecan Secure Entrance is completely safe. Door panels track the position and movement of people walking through, matching their pace. If a pedestrian walks quickly, the door panels move quickly. If they walk slowly, the door panels operate slowly. It they stop, the panels stop. Having door movements synchronized with pedestrians also enables both face and mood recognition, a new capability for DHS and TSA. If the Mandalay Bay Hotel had Secure Entrance Systems installed, those 23 guns smuggled in by the sniper would have been blocked from entering the Hotel. In recent years, other hotels have been the scene of attacks, including Mumbai in 2008 (61 killed), and Mali in 2015 (27 killed). Barbecan patents also include synchronized automatic baggage scanners for Hotel and Airport main entrances. A greater vulnerability for the United States are Subways. See our webpage entitled “
