Intrusion detection for the modern world

Issue 4 2021 Perimeter Security, Alarms & Intruder Detection

Today’s intrusion detection systems must be much more flexible, adaptable and reliable to ensure the protection of customers’ properties and assets.

Long gone is the old alarm that will only trigger through detection of movement caused by someone or something. The focus of the modern intrusion systems is to incorporate intelligence and analytics to avoid the old challenges of having a flood of ‘false positive’ alerts or causing alarm fatigue to people monitoring or responding to these alerts.

The modern intrusion detection system should allow for accurate detection through visual verification and ensure rapid response by communicating most effectively to control rooms and only allow them to manage events through exceptions. These events should also be highlighted to operators and not be allowed to close without following a standard operational procedure (SOP) or instruction. Should the event remain open then there needs to be an escalation or notification to a nominated superior or supervisor to take further actions and to ensure the correct attention is given to close off this open event.

These intrusion detection systems should also be able to overcome typical challenges faced by our customers in terms of data connectivity, GSM coverage and volatile power conditions. Typically these systems should be fitted with backup power options to ensure uninterrupted operation for up to 72 hours. Due to the sophistication of intruders’ tools, techniques and procedures, these intrusion detection systems should be able to pick up any form of tampering, jamming and also loss of communication/connectivity with the monitoring room.

Secutel Technologies offers Visual Verifier a modern intrusion detection system that incorporates all the above-mentioned features with a proven track record of reputable high-value customers that includes the biggest banks and security companies.
