  • LOTTONATOR " Random Search Selector Unit "

    Our company specialises in the development of a broad range of customised electronic products. We have developed a stand-alone Random Search Selector Unit, called The Lottonator, which may be of importance to your security department.

    Our product is custom designed to aid in the process of providing a totally non-discriminatory outcome for screening individuals at designated screening checkpoints.

    These checkpoints may include entrance and / or exit points to secured areas or any other region where screening deems necessary. Checkpoint screenings may aid in the fight against theft, illegal substance abuse, illegal firearm possession and many other security threats.

    The Lottonator is intended to avoid discrimination lawsuits by taking the human element out of random searches, while providing your institution with the necessary means of protecting your resources.

    The Lottonator, random search unit, serves foremost as an active screening device of perpetrators and secondly as a passive deterrent that will always maintain a constant awareness of your search policies, amongst your employees and visitors.

    Our Random Search Unit, can operate as a stand-alone screening unit or can easily be incorporated into any existing security setup to interact with boom-gates, security booths and /or access-controlled entrances or exits.

    Our product is unique in the way that the operator is enabled to adjust the percentages of people to be searched, fast and effortlessly. The internal workings of the random routine are transparent to both security staff and employees at all times- helping elevate pressure on your security staff at high-risk checkpoints, while protecting the rights of the individual subjected to random searches.

    Our product can also be customised to suit your individual security needs.

    Attached are a graphical presentation of typical installation modes and an outlay of the unit.

    Please contact me for a complete technical manual and price guide. Further documentation may be used to compare your current equipment or be used for future reference.

      Random Search

      This concept has always puzzled me. Taking the human element out of searching is exactly why grandma and grandpa are emptying out their bags at the airport while other suspicious looking individuals walk on down the jet way. If you walk, quack and otherwise look like a duck, don't be offended if someone thinks you're a "duck."

      If you want to combine random with the human element, i.e., that gut feeling that something is not right, then fine. Otherwise, don't bother.

          Thats the problem with this "Politically correct" world. Example: 98% of homicides and terror related incidents were commited by dogs with red hair and blue eyes. In order not to offend the dogs you can only search dogs with brown hair? Absurd

          If a person looks or acts like a group of people that are well known for specific crimes, and they are not associated with those crimes, they should not have a problem with trying to lessen the amount of those crimes.

          My opinion.

            Speaking of civil rights, whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty? In other words, how about if they prove that I'm profiling instead of me proving that I am not? Of course, they only see their side of it.

              Honestly, though, I have a feeling that the partners of Afrotech are missing their heads. Literally. And when they do have heads, they have afros.

                This is not a racial or discrimitive product. This product is to take out the racial and discrimination out of random searching in the security industry. Most cases random searching is based on racial or discrimination based on gender, color and type of indavidual. Thats the purpose of our product, to cut out gender descrimination.

                  Doesn't inspire confidence when you see that many spelling errors in one post. At first glance I thought this was a joke or at least a troll.

                    Awesome name, though.

                    "Expert" is something like "leader". It's not a title that you can ever claim for yourself no matter what you might know or might have done. It's a title that others bestow on you based on their assessment of what you know and what you have done.

                      Ummmmmmmm I thought this was something to do with choosing winning numbers for the lottery at first and it had an option to transport yourself back to the set of GOOD TIMES ........ with the compulsory Afro.

                      I would like to know how a lawyer is going to enjoy picking apart the algorhythms behind the alleged randomisation of the selections. So what if we had a place like East LA or Harlem or somewhere with a high ethnic minority ? Could be hard to be so random when perhaps we have chinese, hispanic or other groups.

                        It does not appear to me that your company understands the concept of "randomness".

                        Randomness can be achieved simply by searching every 3rd person, or every 5th person, etc. because of the randomness that is inherent in the arrival of individuals to the checkpoint. There are ways this can be done so the rule employed cannot be easily observed and manipulated by persons approaching the checkpoint. (For instance, if person now being searched exhibits characteristic "x" - for instance, wears a gold wedding band - the next interval is 4, otherwise it is 3, etc.)

                        Or, I could achieve a satisfactory degree of randomness with a simple random number generator routine running on a PDA or laptop at the checkpoint. After each search, I hit a key to run the routine and it tells me instantly what the next interval will be (check the 2nd person next, the 3rd, etc.) Children learn how to program RN routines in their first programming class.

                        While most RN routines are not actually perfectly random over large numbers of runs, depending on how they are "seeded", if they operate with a sufficiently large domain of possible numbers they can approach perfect randomness sufficiently to satisfy any court.

                        More to the point, randomness is not any more desirable than gender- or race-based searches. Behavior-based searches are far more desirable and prevent the little problem mentioned by others of wasting resources by searching unlikely targets.

                          I can see the value in a product like this -- it sounds like a CYA screening product (cover your...)
