Perimeter Intrusion Detection and Security

Perimeter security is your first line of defense. But many systems can be easily bypassed or fail to provide rapid, reliable alerts— leaving your assets vulnerable to infiltration.

The OptaSense Perimeter Intrusion Detection System (PIDS) safeguards your infrastructure and assets using advanced distributed acoustic sensing technology capable of identifying and locating multiple threats in real time, with point-locating capabilities to 10m.


Instead of simply providing an alarm, OptaSense’s advanced sensor technology can detect, classify and precisely locate a number of activities, including people, vehicle movement, low flying aircraft, manual and mechanical digging, gunfire and many others.


Unlike conventional buried sensors, the Perimeter Intrusion Detection System significantly reduces nuisance alarms using reliable algorithms that decipher and classify the type of intrusion in real time. Users can be notified of alarms via text or email, and by leveraging GPS coordinates, the system can pinpoint the location of a security breach within seconds.

With this information, asset owners can increase the effectiveness of response mechanisms, such as patrols and helicopter reconnaissance, by ensuring manual inspection is focused on areas of real activity.
