However, you need to know exactly how that system works in order for it to be effective: and your security staff need to understand it as well. That is why Detection Technologies has created this short guide to intrusion detection implementation.
System Purchase And Design
In order to protect your site perimeter against intruders, you need to select the right system. There are several key considerations for any company purchasing security products: the cost, the effectiveness, and the ease of operation tend to be top of most buyers' lists. There are many options available, from wired to wireless and from perimeter vibration sensors to alarmed fences - each with different practical applications.

Getting To Know Your New System
Once the security system has been fitted by our skilled engineers or accredited installers, it is time for you and your security team to start using it. To get the most from your high-tech perimeter security products, you need to know how they work.
You also need to train your staff to use them. Thankfully, help is at hand. Detection Technologies’ engineers can introduce you and your team to all aspects of using the system, and we are just a phone call away if you do have any problems or questions.
Maintaining Your Intrusion Detection System
It is vital that you check your security system regularly once it has been implemented. This includes arranging regular service visits from a qualified engineer.
You should also teach your workers to check each part of the perimeter system regularly during each shift, and also attack the perimeter itself in order to check that all connections are working.
A fault in your perimeter security could allow an intruder to enter, so make sure you closely monitor your outer fence systems at all times. Detection Technologies can help you with this: give us a call to arrange a visit from one of our qualified and highly experienced engineers.
