Not only for a garden but also for a balcony. Not only for a wall side but also an area protection. Not only for a daytime but also for night time.
- Understanding the Benefits of Fibre Optic PIDS
For high security sites, it is important to rely on a high performance perimeter intrusion detection system (PIDS) that can be calibrated to ignore nuisance vibrations, but not miss alarms, and can provide a long lasting system with minimum maintenance cost. The fibre optic intrusion detection from Fiber SenSys Inc, an OPTEX group company, does just that.
A video has been created to explain how these fence and wall sensors work.
- OPTEX Accurance 3D Piggybacking and Tailgating Detection System
For high security access control where only one authorised person should go through at the time, Accurance 3D will detect any attempt of piggybacking or tailgating. The solutions is not affected by any lighting condition and uses an innovative technology to model the scene in 3D, and colour code the height making it easier to analyse it and differentiate between people and object.
- Securing Data Centres with OPTEX Solutions
OPTEX sensing technologies can help protect each layer of a data centre, from detecting intruders breaking in through the perimeter of the site or roofs or floor void, to analysing unauthorised access inside the building.
