Perimeter Alarm

The first step to securing an area is knowing the boundaries and identifying high-risk areas. With this knowledge, you will be able to take appropriate security measures for everything that needs protection from intruders and/or threats. Perimeter alarms and alerts are an essential component of every perimeter security system/solution.

What is a Perimeter Alarm System?

A perimeter alarm system is an essential security measure that uses sensors, cameras, and other devices to monitor your property for unauthorized access. The control panel can be accessed physically or remotely and can sound a high-decibel siren/alarm when triggered.

A perimeter alarm system protects against intruders by using various perimeter sensors such as:

  • Photoelectric beams
  • External PIRs
  • Laser sensors
  • Radar sensors
