Was a castle the safest place to survive the Middle Ages? Usually such a standard castle in the middle ages seemed not very cozy. Cold, dark and wet. A torch here and there. In fact, however, the rulers at their castles took great care of safety and hygiene. They had access to separate latrines, running hot water from a heated tank and a heated floor. But only in these royal buildings, of course. Smaller, private owners of stone fortresses used to call a castle a tower surrounded by a wooden palisade. Their property was not protected by an army, but by individual mercenary units. And even this was not always the case, because, contrary to appearances, visits to neighbors with weapons in hand did not happen too often in old Poland. Unless from abroad, but then it meant a real flood. Either way, security measures had to be ruthless. In addition to the part-time mercenaries, the main defense was a wall, palisade and a moat. A zone with some form of fence.
Same as today. Only today, instead of mercenaries, there are security companies, instead of a palisade, there is a fence, and instead of a moat there is perimeter protection of the area. Much more invisible than water and more effective. Find out what is the most effective way of protecting your property.
How does perimeter site protection work?
A fence in a fence, in short. Two discrete devices directed towards each other – one is a generator, the other is a receiver. An invisible zone of sensitive bistatic microwaves in the shape of an ellipse is created between them. If an intruder enters this zone, it will automatically trigger an alarm. The FMC perimeter protection of the area by Fortezais a good example.
Invisible protection – FMC perimeter area protection by Forteza. Special algorithms make the detection zone distinguish the real intruder from false alarms. It immediately detects the burglar, but does not raise the alarm because of small animals (birds, rodents, cats) or plants, that accidentally appeared in the zone. The alarm is also not triggered by unpredictable weather – rain, snow, fog, storm, crackling frost or scorching sun.
The zone is created in the direction you choose. It can, for example, precisely cover the boundaries of a site. Each zone can also operate on different frequency channels, so they do not interfere with each other.
Perimeter protection of the area equipped with other protections
The very configuration of perimeter protection is very simple and easily connects to security systems that already operate in your area – by means of standard relays, RS-485 protocol or USB connector. For example, the FMC protection zone can be connected to an existing monitoring system. When an intruder enters the zone, not only will the alarm sound, but also the surveillance cameras will automatically target him. In this way, you can immediately track and identify the culprit of all the confusion.
Perimeter protection with a sensor cable – Tribo-S by Forteza. An additional protection that covers the boundaries of the area is a sensory barrier, i.e. a system of sensory cables located on the fence. Here Tribo-S by Forteza is a great example. It detects any change and deformation that occurs while passing through the mesh and triggers an alarm. Such a zone coming from one controller can reach even up to 300 meters.
Intelligent monitoring and invisible fences. This is how the protection of the area will look like in the future: trusted not only by large corporations protecting their interests, but also private residents who care about the safety of their family. But is your area already well secured?
