Perimeter Intruder Detection Systems

What are PIDS?

There are numerous types of intruder detection sensors available which are all designed to deter and detect intruders attempting to cut or climb the perimeter. We specialise in fence mounted PIDS, as they can be combined seamlessly with your existing perimeter fencing solution.

A PIDS is a Perimeter Intrusion Detection System - it is a fence mounted sensor, that monitors and detects any form of intrusion from the perimeter, allowing critical time for security teams to respond to unauthorised intrusions. PIDS can be attached to the posts or fabric of your fence, and work with almost any fence type.

The perimeter intrusion detection principle of the Jacksons Jaktronic® PID Systems is based on “Reflective Wave Technology”. In combination with the physical barrier provided by the perimeter fence, a perimeter intrusion detection system can form additional defence against attempted intrusions. The technology provides the earliest warning of intrusion attempts while simultaneously ensuring that false alarms are minimised. During intrusion attempts, security staff can monitor and verify intruder activity remotely.

The sensor line, which is composed of only one twisted-pair cable, simplifies the installation and maintenance and is protected by an end-of-line resistor against any tampering with the system.

Our Jaktronic® PID systems are stand alone and do not require a central computer to operate, all the control and monitoring is performed via the control unit with a simple user interface.

Jaktronic PIDS

This PIDS is for installation onto perimeter security fencing, including chain link, mesh panels, vertical bar railings, and security toppings.

Alarm-aFence and Jaktronic Electric System

An electric fencing system designed to detect and deter intruders from attempting to cut or climb the fence or wall it is mounted on. The system will deliver a safe and regulated but painful shock when touched, and will generate an alarm if cut. NPSA (previously known as CPNI) approved options available.

Jaktronic for Walls

A PIDS designed to be installed on the walls or roof of a building to detect intrusion attempts. This system is ideal for fences which run flush with the building, where detection is required to continue around the perimeter.

Jaktronic PIDS and Electric Combination

A combination system designed to offer complete protection for high security sites involving the use of an electrified topping and a PIDS, both of which are separately NPSA (previously known as CPNI) approved.

Jaktronic for Compounds

Jaktronic for Compounds is specifically designed for both internal and external security cages and compounds, whether they are used for gas bottle or oil tank storage, within server rooms, storing hazardous waste, or simply for high value items.

Port Security at Tilbury2

We worked with our partners to install a perimeter intrusion detection system around the existing fencing at Tilbury2 port. Read the case study below.
