PIDS – perimeter intrusion detection systems
The outer perimeter of a building or facility is often the first line of defense in the protection of a building or group of buildings.
Physical protection is the first consideration and when a suitable boundary has been created, electronic detection and surveillance can be added.
There are many technologies available to assist in securing these outer boarders. CCTV is often a good starting point especially with video analytics and thermal imaging cameras and can usually be deployed for building and open land boundaries.
Passive and active infrared, fence line or ground sensing seismic detection can be linked to CCTV systems and PC graphical user interfaces, giving the earliest warning of a perimeter breach.
Determining the correct solution requires a risk assessment and the advice of an experienced contractor.
We have installed many of these systems and can offer a range of solutions from leading manufacturers based on risk and budget.
