STANLEY Security recently broadened its alarm verification offerings with Thermal Perimeter Detection, which provides a reinforced layer of identification and verification protection against intrusion, theft and damage in outdoor spaces with the use of thermal sensors and intelligent analytics.
Designed to protect high-value outdoor assets in the equipment rental, utilities and vehicle service industries, among others, Thermal Perimeter Detection utilizes outdoor thermal sensors to detect an intruder’s heat signature, while intelligent analytics discriminates between humans and environmental noise.
This combination allows for everyday movements that may cause false alarms – headlights, reflections, small animals and trees – to be disregarded while identifying possible threats.
“Thermal sensors are essential for businesses, industrial sites, warehouses and other commercial properties that have high-value assets stored outside their facilities,” said Brad McMullen, vice president of marketing and production solutions for STANLEY.
Unlike outdoor cameras and other detection solutions, Thermal Perimeter Detection also can identify intruders within complex lighting, complete darkness or harsh environmental conditions like fog, rain or snow. Each perimeter is customizable based on the requirements of the customer, whether detecting an intruder climbing a fence or entering an off-limits zone normally void of foot traffic.
Once an alarm is activated, alarm details and thermal video evidence are transmitted to professionals at the STANLEY monitoring center for verification. Upon verification of an actual intruder, police are notified of a crime-in-progress, which normally results in faster response times.
“With the combination of thermal sensors and advanced analytics, our Thermal Perimeter Detection solution allows STANLEY’s expert monitoring team to quickly verify intruders, reduce false alarms and increase the probability of police apprehension,” McMullen said.
