On the battlefield, the perimeter is your front line of defense, blocking the enemy from intruding on your territory. Throughout history, some of those front lines were thought impenetrable but were breached with the smallest of openings or poor weather conditions. Seeing the enemy is the first step to keep unwanted intruders out. Whether it’s stopping an advancing army or stopping people and vehicles from your site, you need a high-quality surveillance system to view the action.
Seeing is Believing
According to the FBI’s 2018 crime statistics, there were over 7 million property crimes in the U.S. that year. Collectively the victims of property crimes suffered losses estimated at $16.4 billion in 2018. That’s a lot of crime, theft and loss of property. That’s why perimeter security designed to protect employees, visitors, and building functions and services from threats is so important.
Methods to keep the bad guys out fences, gates, bollards, berms, locks and security systems, security lighting, alarms, and even security guards. Dark or rainy conditions can make securing your perimeter harder.
One of the most efficient and cost-effective perimeter protectors is video security. Using high-quality security cameras with low light or infrared technologies can see threats where others can’t and should be one of the highest priorities for site owners.
Physical barriers are important to perimeter security, but sites need access points for people and vehicles to come and go. Tracking and securing them requires high-performance security surveillance cameras and intercoms for two-way communication with visitors. Secured entry systems should enable security professionals and site operators to quickly and easily identify and communicate with a visitor before remotely granting access.
