Sensor technology

  • The advantage of fence sensor systems is their highly sensitive detection of vibration, high-precision determination of the time and location of intrusion attempts, and optimum suitability for controlling video surveillance systems for visualising intrusion attempts.
  • The latest HAVERKAMP product development to incorporate sensor technology is MicroGARD® pro – it is ideal for retrofitting to standard wire mesh, grille panel, wire and expanded wire fences, to convert them to highly flexible, cost-effective security fence systems.
  • HAVERKAMP employs a number of different sensor types in its security systems, including temperature, motion, expansion, vibration and radar/ultrasound sensors.

Sensors are employed to measure and control changes in environmental, biological or technical parameters. In security technology, sensor systems are developed mainly for use in perimeter detection. The advantage of sensor systems is their highly sensitive detection of vibration and the high-precision determination of the time and location of any intrusion attempts. They are therefore ideal for use in controlling video surveillance systems, with which intrusion attempts can be directly visualised.


What all today's sensor systems still lack is the artificial intelligence to allow them to distinguish between a genuine and a false alarm. Accordingly, the disadvantage of sensor systems is that false  

alarms are possible (depending on environmental parameters, weather condition, and local flora and fauna); for this reason, HAVERKAMP recommends connecting them to a downstream control centre.

Depending on the product and type of event to be detected, HAVERKAMP employs a number of different sensor types in its security systems, including temperature, motion, expansion, vibration and radar/ultrasound sensors.
