Centinel™ is versatile perimeter alarm system based on shock detection. The fiber cable sensor can be installed on a fence, buried underground, or contained within a wall. A laser signal is sent throughout the system and if interrupted due to intrusion or tampering, an alarm will be raised and an event will be recorded.
The complete system includes the Alarm Information Server at the helm, which supports up to three Alarm Zone Controllers, each of which supports up to 8 defense zones (containing a head and end sensor unit), for a maximum of 24 zones per system. Centinel™ also includes intelligent software which studies the environment noise to remove threat misinformation, for example, wind, rain and small animals created events. Thus, it is able to discern between real threats and natural events.
