Protect your site with advanced perimeter protection & detection systems

Perimeter protection systems are vital to businesses operating at sites with a vast perimeter, with significant assets to protect. Whilst a security fence may be the first line of defence, by the time the alarm system detects an intruder, they would already be inside the building.

Once inside, experienced criminals will know they have a window of opportunity before the authorities arrive. Our perimeter protection and detection systems will help manage these threats.

Through an integrated approach, detection at the perimeter means alarm systems can be triggered, CCTV cameras engaged, and deterrent devices such as audio intervention, sirens and security lighting can be deployed while intruders are still outside a building or protected area.

Perimeter protection systems enhance an existing security system, and when combined with remote alarm monitoring, can reduce the cost of security and above all, provide peace of mind for those with unguarded premises.

Security Industry Accreditations

Different types of perimeter protection & detection systems: Alarm and intruder detection systems

To offer complete protection for a site’s perimeter, the security alarm system can be designed to incorporate:

  • Infrared beams – An invisible beam which will ‘alarm’ when broken
  • Passive Infrared Sensors – Detecting motion around the external perimeter

In the event of the system being triggered, further integrations can be built into the system such as audio intervention, allowing the monitoring station to communicate with the intruder. Security lighting can also be deployed, in addition to the alarm siren to stop the intruder in their tracks.

Your security team will be able to pinpoint exactly where the attempted breach has occurred, allowing them to notify the relevant authorities. Where the perimeter alarm system is integrated with PTZ cameras, those viewing your camera footage will be able to track the intruder.

Types of perimeter protection & detection: CCTV monitoring & ANPR

Effective perimeter protection and detection systems have one clear objective. To ensure the site perimeter is secure and the risk of breaches are minimal.

To offer complete protection for a site’s perimeter, the detection system can be designed to incorporate:

  • CCTV Monitoring – 24/7 remote security monitoring, helping to reduce the cost of physical guards, and optimise security
  • PIR sensors and beams – once triggered, the intruder will be under surveillance and the monitoring station notified
  • Illuminators and security lighting. Illuminators can be deployed to promote effective perimeter protection. Some CCTV systems are fitted with strobe lighting to act as an effective deterrent
  • Video Analytics – human movement detection in low light
  • Thermal CCTV – in low-light situations, where security lighting isn’t a viable option intruders can be detected through their body heat
  • ANPR CCTV cameras – tracking and logging vehicle number plates, helping to spot known threats

Furthermore, these detection systems can incorporate ANPR technology, to store the number plates of all vehicles.

The commercial benefits of perimeter protection and detection systems

The key benefits of perimeter protection and detection systems are:

  • Strong deterrent and an extra layer of protection for your site
  • Maintain revenue and operational continuity
  • Protect valuable assets and equipment
  • Integrate with alarm monitoring and police response
  • Deter criminals with security lighting
  • Opportunity for multiple integrations – video analytics, thermal CCTV, remote monitoring

Safeguard Systems fitted a complete camera and intruder beam system for my storage compound, started the job very quickly and explained what was possible clearly. Really happy with the system, the remoter viewing capabilities and I've had no reliability issues either.

Harry Timbrell

    Frequently asked questions

    What is a perimeter protection system?

    A perimeter protection system is designed to protect a site and its assets from a range of security threats.

    By definition, these systems protect the perimeter of a site – its first line of defence. These advanced security solutions include:

    • CCTV cameras
    • ANPR cameras
    • Gates and barriers
    • Fences and walls

    Each type of system helps to protect a site, with some most relevant to certain security objectives and threats. 

    Perimeter detection systems help spot and enable security teams to react fast to live security threats. 

    A perimeter detection device usually includes:

    • IR beams and sensors fitted to CCTV cameras and poles
    • AI-driven video analytics to provide accurate human detection
    • PIDS – undergrounds sensors fitted close to the perimeter fence to detect movement
    • PTZ cameras – helping to zoom in on and deal with threats in real time 

    There are also physical patrols. However, the cost of deploying security guards is no longer cost-effective when compared to CCTV monitoring.

    For companies operating their businesses across vast sites, within a boundary fence or wall, the benefits of perimeter protection and detection systems are clear. 

    The four key benefits are detecting and deterring criminals before they breach your perimeter, protecting assets, staff, and operations, reducing false alarms and peace of mind.

    If any of the above rings true for you, a perimeter protection system would be a wise choice for your business.

    As mentioned earlier in this FAQ section, there is a range of perimeter detection devices.

    They include:

    • Sensors
    • Beams
    • Thermal cameras
    • Video analytics

    Each device has its unique purpose. If you need some advice, contact the team today.

    You can protect a perimeter in various ways.

    A Safeguard we are experts in electronic security systems. The different types of perimeter protection systems we deploy include:

    • Perimeter CCTV – PTZ, thermal and high-res security cameras coupled with perimeter detection devices
    • ANPR cameras – number plate detection for the purposes of site access control and tracking suspicious vehicles
    • Fencing – these traditional methods offer a physical obstacle to any intruder looking to breach a site’s perimeter
    • Barriers – often used for the purposes of site access control, a barrier can be activated by a guard, or an ANPR system, keypad, or fob 

    As you can see, these systems can meet and manage a range of threats.
