Do you know Smart Perimeter? Visit Detection Technologies @Security Expo

Posted by Sam Berlemann on Oct 22, 2019 1:56:42 PM

The ultimate goal of Smart Home is to increase the quality of life and security. Smart Home is no longer a vision but has become an integral part of our lives. When we leave home in the morning all doors are being automatically locked and a smart security system protects our valuables. When we return home after work our houses are already well-tempered and the LED lightning creates a welcoming atmosphere. Alexa provides us with the news of the day before we ask her to show the latest episode of our favourite series on Netflix. So how does Smart Home compare to Smart Perimeter?

The goals of Smart Perimeter and Smart Home are very much alike. It is all about high automation, less frustration and high security. Surprisingly, the truth is that the perimeter is nowhere as secure or automated compared to our private homes. In fact, Perimeter Protection often consists of outdated security systems that include blind spots and are easy to overcome. Perimeter Management still relies on various isolated systems with little ability to talk to another. But all this is about to change with Detection Technologies' Smart Perimeter Solution, a unique system that neatly integrates Perimeter Protection and Perimeter Management.
