A private residence and its grounds comprises a variety of different perimeters including fences, bushes and walls with large areas of vegetation and pets roaming around freely.
The home-owner sought to protect his property from intrusion using a discreet early-warning detection technology linked to a networked CCTV system. The system had to provide 100% ground coverage in a precise detection pattern and be immune to false activations by the home-owner’s pets and vegetation.
Precise intrusion detection
Other solutions were deemed unsuitable for the task: it was difficult to set the detection areas of a PIR or a microwave detector precisely enough; Video Analysis is expensive and could be affected by environmental conditions, such as light and shadows; and a buried cable sensor would have been costly and disruptive to install.
Redscan was chosen because it was easy and quick to install and possible to set up a precise detection area easily, which would not be affected by the type of the boundary or the environment with very low false alarms. Optex made an installation of 17 Redscan RLS-3060SH Class-1 Laser Detectors to protect perimeter and integrate with cameras.
