Perimeter Intrusion Detection Systems (PIDS) detect intruders as soon as a protected area is entered and therefore before intruders are able to gain access to people or valuable objects and assets. Their employment, in conjunction with Video surveillance systems, provide a primary and fundamental layer of security by monitoring suspicious activities nearby perimeter boundaries, allowing dedicated operators to set up proper security measures accordingly.
Perimeter Intrusion Detection Systems (PIDS) wake up CCTV cameras and consequent security procedures
PIDS need to be resilient enough not only to withstand outdoor weather conditions, but also reliable enough to detect intrusion during harsh environmental conditions.
This is due largely to many ungovernable factors such as: wind, rain, ice, standing water, blowing debris, random animal activities, as well as other sources including radio transmission interferences.
An holistic approach which take in considerations all this aspects is a unique condition for defining the technology that better fit each specific application.
