At construction sites alone, industry experts estimate 1 billion dollars in goods will be stolen annually. There are countless other government, commercial, and municipal operations that are also located outside. Many of these sites are vulnerable to the same theft, damage, and crime if left unprotected.
For utility plants, construction sites, and other large facilities, maintaining a secure perimeter is the only way to ensure the safety of the people, operations, and equipment inside, and to deter vandalism and copper theft. Fortunately, perimeter intrusion detection technology has made it possible to detect and respond to security threats more efficiently than ever. Smarter Security offers two state-of-the-art outdoor security solutions: fiber optic fence-mounted sensor and passive infrared motion detection.
SmarterFence uses fiber optic sensors to identify intrusion threats, while SmarterBeam relies on infrared to detect motion from anything that puts off heat. Both solutions work around the clock, day and night, in all weather conditions, and are finely tuned to account for environmental factors. That means there are very few false alarms and no real threats go undetected.
Choosing between SmarterFence and SmarterBeam comes down to the nature of your facility, complementary security technologies, and security staffing. SmarterBeam requires no additional infrastructure and is extremely reliable at detecting possible threats, which can be assessed and responded to by on-duty personnel. However, there is no physical barrier to keep intruders and passersby at a safe distance.
Utility operations, storage yards, facilities in populated areas, and commercial sites with dangerous and/or valuable assets within reach are typically protected by a fence to deter and delay intrusions. SmarterFence adds intelligent technology to this barrier and detects anyone who tries to gain access under, over, or through a fence.
