The recent perimeter security breach at the Y-12 National Security Complex highlights a long-standing challenge for perimeter systems used to protect outdoor areas. Repeated false alarms can eventually condition security operators to ignore valid alerts, undermining security effectiveness and causing security teams to lose trust in their perimeter security systems.
Achieving accurate perimeter security with a thermal video camera comes down to knowing the nature and location of an intrusion, allowing an effective response. While there are a number of options available for perimeter security, using a thermal video camera with video analytics has become a strong contender for best-of-breed in this area. Thermal video analytic […]
An evaluation by the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Airport Perimeter Security system test program has confirmed 100% accuracy of the SightLogix SightSensor in the challenging environment typical of many airports. According to the TSA’s final report, the “evaluation team performed over 900 scenarios of which every alarm instance was accurately reported.” The TSA established the program to address vulnerabilities […]
Achieving reliable thermal perimeter security around electrical utilities, chemical plants, airports, data centers, sea ports, rail facilities, and other critical assets often comes down to detection accuracy and solution cost. While there are a number of options available for perimeter security, thermal cameras have become a strong contender for best-of-breed. Recent developments in processing for thermal cameras take […]
