Fence mounted detection

Early warning of an intrusion attempt

Although perimeter fencing and gates provide a line of defence to a given site or premise, adding a Perimeter Intrusion Detection System (PIDS)  complements and greatly increases the overall effectiveness of the perimeter security. Protect and secure your site with Heras’ fence-mounted PIDS.

Heras offers an innovative range of PIDS products which are designed to be used on virtually any type of fence. The highly sensitive microphonic sensor cables (GeoMic) can detect many types of intrusion attempt, from filing and cutting to climbing.

The benefits of having a Heras PIDS include:

  • An early warning of an intrusion attempt
  • Enables a more timely security response
  • Seamless integration with your SMS (Security Management System) to enhance overall site security
  • Reduce the costs of your onsite security resources
  • Peace of mind

Why invest in a Perimeter Intrusion Detection System (PIDS)

A PIDS enhances the security of your site by giving an early warning alarm to an intrusion attempt. By combining a PIDS with your fence, entrance and access control, you create a dependable, total perimeter protection solution.

Upon an intrusion attempt, the system picks up signals from the fence, then the associated hardware analyses these and determines the nature and validity of the intrusion. Upon a confirmed intrusion attempt, the system will then produce the appropriate output to the alarm system. This early warning gives the security team more time to respond to the intrusion attempt.

The system is optimised to minimise false alarms and to ignore most weather effects and background noise events, such as traffic, which can cause unwanted alarms. Our fence-mounted dectection solutions are designed to seamlessly integrate into the front-end security management system (SMS) and the other security components on site. With many configurable features, the detection systems will enhance the overall security system operation and functionality.
