When it comes to integrated systems solutions, intrusion detectors and sensors are smart and necessary devices. They provide the basis for alerting breaches at the protected premises and can also be used in other security activities, including triggering camera recordings or in conjunction with access control, doors, and closers. With more robust microprocessor power and enhanced overall performance, they continue to develop into integral devices that initiate and integrate a range of processes and are applicable to a variety of vertical markets and businesses.

The category of intrusion detection is transforming dramatically and this trend will continue with the move to the Internet of Things (loT) and growing reliance on sensors as gateways to connectivity in building automation processes. With greater reliability, ‘catch’ or triggering performance, fortified signal strength and ever-improving aesthetics, sensors and detectors are important components in commercial, industrial and even critical infrastructure and government specifications.

For any size business, protecting their assets with layered security that includes some form of verification is a primary concern because merely detecting an issue is not enough. Photo beams and motion detectors trigger an alarm condition when crossed, but do not provide a way to know if that alarm is a genuine one. Video surveillance alone can provide evidence of a crime, but without someone watching the video alarm trigger, there is no way to respond to the trigger in the immediacy. While advanced video analytics is very helpful in identifying true alarms many systems are far too costly for the average business and affordable systems with analytics either require too much daily input from the end-user to be effective or are simply poorly designed and unreliable. This is where Videofied provides an incalculable advantage.
