Watch the Video of Actual Apprehensions

Videofied outdoor MotionViewers deliver verified perimeter security and operate up to four years on three AA batteries.

“Unplugged wireless” means instant installation; there is no trenching to get power or network cables to the perimeter and the system can be reconfigured as needs change.

The MotionViewer detects movement and sends a 10-second video clip of the actual intrusion over the cell network to a monitoring operator for immediate review and dispatch. Different from the typical CCTV surveillance camera, the simple wireless MotionViewer combines a passive infrared motion detector, infrared illuminators for night vision, and a digital video camera into a device the size of a fist.

Fiber Optic Fence Sensor Technology

SmarterFence™ is a fiber optic intrusion detection system that intelligently detects and warns of intruders while minimizing nuisance alarms. SmarterFence is specifically designed to provide reliable, early warning of intruders by detecting any attempt to cut, climb, or crawl under perimeter fences.

SmarterFence Fence Sensor System consists of a processor module that transmits a laser beam through a fiber optic sensor cable that is sensitive to a wide range of vibration, flexing, compression and cutting, while at the same time minimizing nuisance alarms from natural causes. Since SmarterFence relies on light as the detection method, it is intrinsically safe as it does not radiate signals, nor is it susceptible to electrical interference. This makes it particularly suitable for use in hazardous industrial locations where there is risk of fire or explosion.
 
SmarterFence cable is very easy to install; field repair or replacement of a damaged section of cable is routine when using a simple but effective splice connector.
 
Disturbance of the sensor cable is detected in the SmarterFence Processor and analyzed using a microcontroller with a digital signal processor. If the disturbance exceeds pre-set conditions, an alarm will be generated.

New Features Improve Outdoor Detector

The WatchOUT eXtreme outdoor detector from RISCO Group delivers a suite of unique technologies that bolster event recognition and optimizes protection against vandalism.

Its sway recognition technology recognizes and excludes objects — such as swaying bushes and trees — that would trigger traditional intruder detection systems. Digital correlation technology helps eliminate false alarms caused by pets and rapid temperature changes. Active IR anti-mask detects any masking of the lens or other impediment to viewing, including a dirty lens, and should vandals attempt to sabotage or mask the detector, a proximity alert is issued, generated by on-board directional and proximity analysis. Anti-collision technology allows multiple units to be installed face-to-face or back-to-back for maximum installation flexibility.
