Perimeter protection for electrical substation 

​Customer Requirements:

Reliable perimeter security. The customer needed multiple levels of protection including distance, spot, and boundary protection. Each level needed to activate a camera, trigger an alarm and notify authorities if an individual penetrated a substation. 

Benefits of Using Redwall: 

The intrusion event is tracked by customer's own central monitoring station who then alerts the authorities along with an end-user emergency contact.
The SIP series allows the system integrator to easily adjust and account for any physical obstacles within the protected perimeter view of the detector.

Vehicle Detection
Customer Requirements:

Detection of vehicles approaching: gates, facilities, or parking areas. Efficient use of PTZ camera to monitor parked and approaching cars.  

Benefits of Using Redscan:

Redscan can be installed at various location points to create specific detection areas. Highly tolerant against nuisance false alarms due to environmental factors like car head light. Redscan has 4 to 8 independent detection areas that can be integrated to a PTZ camera field of view preset. Redscan can recognize the location of a target and switch the camera view to capture the target clearly and automatically.

The Site

A large bank branch was in need of an extra level of security for its vault and safety deposit boxes. Both the vault and the safety deposit boxes were located in a room, protected by the existing in-wall vibration sensing technology. 

The Challenge

The customer was required by its insurance company to introduce an extra level of security to the existing in-wall vibration sensing technology system, a higher and more reliable level of protection to ensure that it did not have any gaps in its detection. The system also needed to be easily integrated with the existing infrastructure and minimize the disruption to the bank’s operations. Due to the surrounding environment, the existing system was producing numerous false alarms.

The Solution

A leading system integrator in the region was given the challenge to specify the most suitable products and solutions for this project. From many viable technologies, four REDSCAN RLS-3060 were chosen. The award-winning laser detectors from Optex were installed to create four adjustable invisible laser curtains around the safety deposit boxes and the vault to shroud it. The installation was quick, did not disturb the bank’s operations, and was cost-effective. The adjustable laser curtains do not leave any gaps in the detection field. The REDSCAN detectors were easily interfaced with the CCTV and the existing intruder alarm infrastructure.

There is an increasing importance and urgency surrounding data center security. Managing sensitive personal and financial data is at risk from theft and can be devastating to companies of any size if stolen. Loss of confidence by business partners or customers that entrust their data can cause a significant fallout. Part of preventing such breaches starts with having highly effective perimeter security both indoor and outdoor. Having multiple layered technologies can help deter, detect and delay perimeter intrusion. Utilizing Optex IP detectors can be an effective component in both outdoor and indoor security solutions.
