Perimeter Security

According to the 2014 FBI crime statistics, “There were an estimated 8,277,829 property crimes (burglaries, larceny-thefts, and motor vehicle thefts) reported by law enforcement. Financial losses suffered by victims of these crimes were calculated at approximately $14.3 billion. Larceny-theft accounted for 70.8 percent of all property crimes reported, burglary for 20.9 percent, and motor vehicle theft for 8.3 percent.” These losses are significant.

As companies invest in security to protect intellectual property, people and physical assets, creating a visible line with perimeter security is a great complement to an already existing indoor security system. It is important to create an uninviting and secure property to deter criminals from considering your property as a target.

Protect important assets stored outside such as lumber on a lumber yard, cars on a dealership lot or repair shop, construction equipment on a retail lot or a construction site, with the addition of access control and video surveillance outside.


Avoid blind spots near entrances, limit access by using landscaping and paths to lead to entrances. Obstacles, such as trees and shrubs, can create hiding places for criminals.

Video Surveillance

Install video surveillance with analytic tools at the perimeter of the property. Configure cameras to record based on specific motion detection criteria; this may reduce false alarm rates. The goal is timely notification to security personnel with the ability to zoom into an area where the disturbance is detected.

Access Control

Use access control at the entrance of the property, parking lots and garages, as well as at the entrance of the building can create a secure barrier.

Access control with remote monitoring will leave electronic documentation of access and the failed attempts of anyone entering or exiting your property. The use of video surveillance will provide verification for the access system.

Doors and windows

With the use of glass break sensors along with window and door sensors security will be alerted when a breach happens. With the use of security glass laminates windows become shatter resistant, leaving and intruder perplexes as to why they cannot smash a hole in the window.


The ultimate goal is to prevent criminals from gaining access to the property and reaching the building. With the use of video surveillance, access control, and creating visibility at entrances; perimeter security can complement the already existing interior security system.
