Virtual permieter-fence alert system from FLIR

FLIR Systems has released a ‘virtual’ perimeter-fence alert system called Thermal Fence – a fully-integrated system which uses thermal security cameras for simultaneous threat detection and assessment. 

The system recently won the Best New Product award at Security2011, Australia’s largest security conference and exhibition. 

The Thermal Fence uses FLIR Sensors Manager (FSM) software, providing automated perimeter approach surveillance, intrusion detection and alert capabilities.

According to FLIR, the system covers perimeter security applications including critical infrastructure, petro-chemical facilities, nuclear facilities, commercial campuses and residential installations.
