Security and threat level detections are a matter of utmost importance to any organizations to properly secure their assets. For any property in concern it starts from there perimeter.
The Perimeter is an area where there never has been a more important time to deploy robust, reliable and secure intrusion detection strategies to mitigate operational risk.
Prompt and adept security measures ensure real time response towards any intrusion activity to minimize any kind of loss towards the organization. Ensuring your Intrusion detection system is fully integrated into your security solution will help you in receiving real time data with the ability to track and respond to intruders.
Fiber optic technology is becoming the technology of choice for organizations looking to deploy a cost-effective reliable solution with significantly lower lifetime cost of ownership. Our System being a Make in India product helps in ensuring prompt and timely responses which once seen from economical perspective helps in saving valuable forex.
Our product can be deployed in over ground as well as underground manner.
The underground deployment we will discuss in our next blog, here let’s focus on the over ground deployment with Fences.
Over ground deployment with Fences
Security measures with fencing systems were originally designed to exceed the stringent counter terror security specifications. Fencing systems were designed for rapid deployment, ease of installation and are suitable for use on all types of surfaces. The Idea behind any fencing system provides secure, re-locatable, on ground alternative to traditional security methodologies. Various security fencings are deployed at Government establishments, nuclear facilities, navy docks, National Grid substations, airports, oil and gas depots, mining operations and other security sensitive sites at home and abroad.
Although they are sufficient in its own but they only provide a basic level of security which can be easily penetrated into. This is where our system comes handy. Based on distributed acoustic sensing our system provides acute and to the point alerts whenever any intrusion happens. Capable to be equipped with other security modules, our system create an alarm which helps in creating prompt responses whenever any intrusion occurs.
Our Perimeter Intrusion Detection System is independent of the type of fence one uses. Prior to understanding the working there let’s understand the common forms of fencing as available for usage.
Types of Fencing
- Barbed Wire / Roll Net – Barbed wire also known as barb wire occasionally corrupted as bobbed wire or bob wire, is a type of steel fencing wire constructed with sharp edges or points arranged at intervals along the strands. It is used to construct inexpensive fences and is used atop walls surrounding secured property. It is also a major feature of the fortifications in trench warfare (as a wire obstacle). A person or animal trying to pass through or over barbed wire will suffer discomfort and possibly injury. Barbed wire fencing requires only fence posts, wire, and fixing devices such as staples. It is simple to construct and quick to erect, even by an unskilled person.
- Mesh Net Fencing – Welded wire mesh fence is a steel fence consisting of wire strands electrically welded together to form a high strength mesh. The fencing is available in two formats: Rolled mesh and Rigid mesh. Over the last 30 years Rigid Mesh Fencing has become the system of choice for demarcation across the UK, Europe and Australia. The rigid mesh system has proven popular, and is now featured as a first choice on a wide number of projects from Construction, Civil, Utilities and in a Temporary Works capacity
- Iron Fence – An iron fence is a fence made of iron. This may either be wrought iron, which is ductile and durable and may be hammered into elaborate shapes when hot, or the cheaper cast iron, which is of low ductility and quite brittle. Cast iron can also produce complicated shapes, but these are created through the use of mounds of compressed sand rather than hammering, which would be likely to damage the iron.
For all the areas mentioned in the aforesaid, our system works flawlessly. With a user-friendly built-in we help in laying sensory fiber optic cables across the perimeter in concern.
Here in Fiber Optic Sensing Solution our FO-PIDS device comes in two different variants Safe Fence & Safe Max. Where Safe Fence is the handheld version and Safe Max is the rack-mountable version. Depending on the length of the perimeter we just do the job of connecting the perimeter with a functional and capable control room. In the control room, the Controller/Interrogator is placed.
When an attempt of climbing over or lifting fences happens the vibration generated by the activity is captured by the fiber sensor, which in turn activates the alarm in the control room. The fences where CCTV or thermal cameras are installed could be an added advantage to the security monitoring of the perimeter.FO-PIDS can be integrated with cameras and other third party devices through interfaces such as dry contacts and TCP/IP making our solution more reliable.
Overall our aim is to provide every perimeter across the country with prompt adept and accurate security measures. We help you in achieving the same; do contact us for a quick consultation on your security measures.
