What Are PIDS?

A PIDS (Perimeter Intrusion Detection System) consists of fence-mounted sensors which detect vibrations in order to identify the exact location of attempted breaks or scaling of the fence. This data is fed back to a control box and PIDS software creates audio-vidsual alerts, alarms, notifications or live feeds which allow security personnel to take action the moment intrusion is attempted.

What Types Of Fencing Will
Work With PIDS?

Generally, any metal fence will work well with PIDS. All have different pros and cons with the system but the following fence types are recommended: Wire Fencing, Mesh Fencing, Palisade Fencing, Security Railings and Solid Metal Fencing. A single sensor can monitor up to 1500 metres of fencing making it a cost-effective solution for large boundaries.

Our systems are able to detect immediate intrusion attempts by climbing, cutting or lifting a perimeter fence, or even by tampering with the power/communication cabling. The sensors can be attached to most types of existing physical boundaries including decorative, chain-link or welded mesh fences and also walls for maximum detection ability.

Having perimeter detection equipment installed allows the user or operator to have real-time information on the exact position of attempted intrusions along the entire property perimeter. The systems can be connected to CCTV systems, sirens, audible warning beacons and lights allowing advanced warning and correct live information of any potential threat.

Applications for PIDS:

In the case of commercial premises, it may give the onsite security staff the advanced warning that (as an example) youths are attempting to break through a fence and steal expensive equipment. This immediate detection could be seen in the control room while a security team are moving to intercept the persons before any losses are incurred.

If it is the home of a wealthy individual, then this could allow the occupants the necessary time to quickly secure themselves into a secure room within a building before they experience any threat.

All systems can be easily designed to create warnings to would-be intruders that they have breached a secured monitored area and are being watched. This unique system advantage effectively helps scare people away from your property before they have managed to get near a building. This overall reduces losses, risks, damage and the potential risk to life.
