Protecting Fenced Yards: Outdoor Intruder Detection Camera System

Fenced Yard Security

Theft of lucrative items from fenced areas of commercial businesses is on the rise. Protecting fenced lots, such as car dealerships, equipment rental lots and scrap yards requires video security systems that provide reliable intruder detection both day and night without excessive nuisance alarms.

Industry Challenges

Outdoor spaces are not easy to protect. While smart sensors are designed to detect movement, outdoor areas provide a unique challenge as animals, leaves, and even wind can overwhelm a system with nuisance alarms. Trying to provide security outdoors is a challenge for many industries with fenced yards.

People responsible for protecting fenced lots are often concerned about:

  • Detecting intruders with high reliability over large perimeters in the difficult outdoors
  • Liability and negative perception caused by theft or disruption
  • Protecting the site from costly theft and vandalism
  • Operational awareness around the lot during the day
  • Reliable nighttime protection, even in low-light environments

Despite these challenges, technologies exist that can be employed to effectively eliminate the risks.
