How Does Perimeter Security & Intruder Detection Work?
Intruder detection sensors deter, detect, delay and deny intruders. A perimeter security system provides critical time for security teams to respond to unauthorised intrusions.
Various types of PIDS sensor are available to cater for different types of application and risk. These identify noise and vibrations during intrusion attempts, or alarm when a beam is crossed, alerting security personnel of an intrusion.
In conjunction with the physical barrier provided by the perimeter fence, the PIDS forms the first line against attempted intrusions. They provide the earliest warning of intrusion attempts while simultaneously ensuring that false alarms are minimised. During intrusion attempt, security staff can monitor and verify intruder activity.
The alarm signal will be generated from the zone on the perimeter where the attack is taking place. It can be integrated with CCTV Systems and access control systems to provide a comprehensive security solution i.e. a PTZ camera zooms to the location, lighting can illuminate the area, and the alarm can be relayed to remote central monitoring.
