What is PIDS (Perimeter Intrusion Detection System)?

Glossary Definition

Perimeter Intrusion Detection Systems (PIDS) are security systems designed to detect and prevent unauthorized entry into a defined perimeter. These systems can use a variety of technologies such as sensors, cameras, and alarms to detect intrusions and alert security personnel or law enforcement.

PIDS are typically used to protect buildings, compounds, military bases, and other facilities that need to control access and prevent unauthorized entry. They can be used in conjunction with other security measures, such as CCTV cameras and guards, to provide a comprehensive security solution. PIDS can be triggered by a variety of factors, such as the crossing of an invisible barrier, the opening of a door or window, or the movement of an object within a certain distance of the perimeter. When an intrusion is detected, PIDS can alert security personnel and take other appropriate actions, such as activating alarms or locking doors.
