Many businesses simply don't realise the impact that an intruder will have on their business until it's too late.
Optical fibre sensors have primarily been developed for the communications industry. As such, their use as vibration sensors inevitably involves compromises that limit their effectiveness as perimeter intrusion detection sensors. In contrast, Detection Technologies VibraTek Plus system was designed purely as an intrusion detection sensor. As such, incorporates features to enhance its effectiveness when deployed in such applications.
A national central bank belongs undoubtedly to one of the most security sensitive sites. We can announce that Detection Technologies' VibraSector perimeter intrusion detection system has been chosen for the protection of a national banknote production facility.
Perimeter intruder detection systems (PIDS) sound expensive, and – unless you are a prison or the military – might have a whiff of excess about them. Hollywood has a lot to answer for this, as many action movies glamorise both the exotic security and the locations that it protects, making them seem out of the reach of mortals.
As part of an ongoing initiative to ease the integration of Detection Technologies perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS) into third party software solutions we have now implemented the Modbus TCP/IP into the VibraSector.
No good news for passengers departing from German airport Cologne/Bonn this Saturday morning. A security incident has disrupted flight operations. An extensive security check was carried out after a hole in the outer fence of the airport was identified.
Protecting your property is vital, especially when this property contains hazardous inventory, vital business equipment or valuable items. In these scenarios, CCTV alone is not enough. Catching potential break-ins is not enough – the goal is to prevent intruders from coming anywhere near the property.
Perimeter detection deterrents are crucial components for organisational, public, and private safety. Perimeter safety has a reputation for being costly and often inefficient, but this is an antiquated notion that does not reflect enhanced engineering methodologies. Technological advancements mean that reliable solutions are out there, but knowing which option to choose can be overwhelming.
An effective security system comprises of four elements:
Protection, Detection, Verification & Reaction.
These are the essential principles for effective security on any site, whether it's a small independent business with a single site, or a large multinational corporation with hundreds of locations.
There are several things that people need to consider before investing in a high quality security system. Here’s a quick guide to the main risk-altering scenarios that businesses face, and how to respond.
