Something as simple as detecting an open door that’s supposed to be closed can be the start of a successful security intervention. Open door alerts can be sent to a remote monitoring center which then calls or messages local authorities or company officials about a possible breach in perimeter security.
Systems that detect an intrusion through a door or window are called intrusion detection systems (IDS). They are used on various facility sizes, from small retail stores to large campus complexes.
Before an intrusion detection system can be installed, a site survey must be performed. The system design will overlay the application requirements with specific hardware and software solutions that meet the demands of the application. This requires an expert technical knowledge of various intrusion detection systems
