Perimeter protection systems


Perimeter protection systems have the task of preventing intrusion attempts in the protected perimeter by real-time detection and sending data to a monitoring center. The detection methods are several – by detecting mechanical vibrations on a metal fence, by detecting electromagnetic interference created by cables buried underground, or by using microwave barriers. Amongst all the different types of perimeter protection systems offered today, the ones made by Southwest Microwave are one of the best, because the are very reliable and perform in any atmospheric conditions. They also have a very high accuracy level in localizing the place of the intrusion, and also eliminate any false alarms caused by wind or rain. It is important to note that deployment of these systems can reduce the expenses for physical security personnel, because the instantaneous and accurate alarm information received in the monitoring center offers the ability for prompt and more effective reaction with less security guards. The information supplied by the system ensure that the physical guarding personnel will be sent to the proper spot, at the proper moment, and only if there is a real threat.


How can a perimeter be protected, if there is no fence?

The solution is to use a system of cables mounted underground. It works in any type of soil, and under asphalt or concrete. Ensures a very high accuracy in localizing the spot of the intrusion – 3 meters, which is the best in the industry. The system works by creating an electromagnetic field between two wires, laid in the ground in parallel to each other. Each object, which moves through the field generates an alarm event. The system can be integrated with other security systems, such as video surveillance, lights or audio notification. That way a more comprehensive perimeter protection solution can be created.


Which perimeter protection system performs best during fog?

All three systems of perimeter protection systems offered by ANDY work with a very high level of reliability under any atmospheric conditions, including fog. For example, the systems with microwave barriers are preferred at airports, exactly because of their ability to perform great in fog and show the presence of an aircraft at important locations in the airport in times of dense fog.


How can a temporary perimeter protection be realized?

For special events, such as concerts, sport, political or other gatherings, the microwave barriers offer an excellent solution for a mobile type of perimeter protection for open spaces. Depending on the terrain and the mounting stands the barriers can be set up to detect presence at different heights from the ground. Using these systems does not require the employment of any additional system or devices. The mounting procedure is fairly easy and the system uses only power supply, calibration device and a computer for monitoring. After the installation the system is disassembled quickly and is ready to be deployed at other locations.
