- USE CASES
Perimeter Security & Access ControlPerimeter Security and Access Control systems protect the external perimeter of a facility, control access to restricted areas, and detect and monitor anomalies. Access control includes the control of persons, vehicles, and materials through entrances and exists in a controlled area or premises. Perimeter detection, in contrast, is the detection of access to the outer limits of a detection area by means of physical barriers, sensors on physical barriers, or exterior sensors. Finally, intrusion alarm systems signal entry or attempted entry of a person or an object into the area or volume protected by the system.
