In today’s ever-changing world, businesses are turning to perimeter surveillance technologies to help protect their assets and provide a safe environment for their employees. The last few years have seen some great advancements in commercial perimeter surveillance technology that can provide enhanced security for any business. Here we will discuss the latest developments in the field.


Artificial Intelligence (AI)

AI-based technologies such as computer and machine learning make it possible for businesses to detect potential threats far more quickly than traditional methods. This allows them to respond faster and take appropriate action if needed. When combined with other technologies such as video analytics or facial recognition, these systems can be incredibly effective in alerting business owners to suspicious activity and preventing intrusion.

In addition, alarm validation using cameras has become increasingly common – with AI-based technologies able to further confirm the accuracy of the alarm. This is leading to an ever-growing number of cross-technological integrations designed to reduce false alarms, and to ensure personnel in an alarm centre spend minimal time in validating an alarm.


Smart Sensors

Smart sensors are becoming increasingly popular in commercial settings due to their ability to detect intruders without the need for continuous human monitoring. With smart sensors, businesses can program them to trigger alarms when certain conditions are met (such as motion detection or changes in temperature). This allows business owners to be alerted of potential threats instantly and respond quickly before any damage is done.

  • LiDAR Technology – One such advancement is Lidar sensors which can be installed along the perimeter of any given property. These devices detect objects or people that cross it and create a detailed 3D map of the surroundings. This allows them to quickly identify any potential intruders and alert security personnel immediately.
  • Radar Technology – In addition, radar technology can be used in all types of weather conditions and is able to detect objects across greater distances from the perimeter borders. Radar technology also utilises a much wider range of frequencies than LiDAR, meaning it can work in environments with a higher degree of interference.

Combining these technologies can offer significant benefits and can also be applied in an extensive range of use cases and applications.


Accelerometer-Based Technology

Accelerometer-based technology is becoming more commonplace in fence monitoring as it’s able to address one of the long-standing problems of false alarms. The accuracy of detection has been refined down to 3 meters and the sensitivity settings have been broadened to reduce false alarms.

The great thing about this technology is that it can be configured for any kind of fencing or wall supports, and IP compatibility ensures that the system is easily integrated into larger security networks. These features add up to an effective and reliable form of perimeter defence that overcomes many traditional shortcomings. With this technology, it’s now possible to achieve a much higher level of protection than ever before.


Thermal Detection

As technology advances, the cost of perimeter security is decreasing significantly. Thermal detection was once too expensive for most businesses but is now much more accessible due to these modern innovations. Integrating these sensors with an intrusion detection system, low-light cameras, and a comprehensive video management system enables reliable detection and notification of any intrusions with minimum risk of false alarms.

Moreover, automated response systems that use predictive analytics to identify potential threats have been developed as well. These systems can be customized according to the requirements of a certain business and provide proactive protection from security breaches.



Overall, these latest advancements in commercial perimeter protection and surveillance brings a lot to the table. They enable businesses to better protect their assets and personnel while also providing more comprehensive data that can be used to gain valuable insights into patterns or potential threats. It’s no wonder then that these technologies are becoming increasingly popular amongst those looking for additional security solutions.
