Early warning perimeter detection

August 2016 Perimeter Security, Alarms & Intruder Detection

Modular Communication, considers early warning perimeter detection as the first line of defence when considering the protection of premises.

Traditional electric fencing has been used for perimeter detection and a deterrent. However, the false alarm rate and the reliability of electric fencing has not been a totally effective solution.

AcoustAlert is a perimeter detection solution based on the use of a microphonic sensor cable, mounted onto the perimeter structure.

AcoustAlert detects intruders climbing, cutting, breaking through or crawling under the fence or perimeter. It sends an alarm which is generated during the disturbance to the guards control room or an offsite monitoring control room.

It can be mounted onto a fence to detect fence disturbance, underground to detect under digging or on a wall top to detect wall climbing. It is easy to install, maintain and integrate into other alarm and switching systems. It is a cost-effective first line of defence for perimeters.

Each AcoustAlert field processor has two sensor zones, each zone covering a maximum distance up to 300 metres. Where protection of a large premises is required, multiple field processors can be used and networked together.

The AcoustAlert solution to perimeter detection, and thus early warning, has become a client’s preference because the ‘old ways’ are, and have been, problematic.
