Integrated Security Corp., a designer, manufacturer and installer of security products, has released the wireless Hydra Asset Protection System for use in self-storage and other industries. The system is intended for outdoor security, ideal for property perimeters or for use around large assets, according to a company press release.
The Hydra sensor includes two independent sensing technologies: an accelerometer to detect movement and a passive infrared sensor to detect the body heat of a person near the fence or asset. Unless both are disturbed, no alarm is generated. This means wind alone will not cause an alarm, allowing Hydra to eliminate the biggest problem for fence-mounted systems, according to the release.
The wireless sensors allow for flexible placement around a facility’s entire perimeter or on individual assets, such as a storage container or vehicle. A wireless mesh network links sensors to each other and a control panel. There are no wires or conduit; each sensor is battery-powered.
Based in Novi, Mich., Integrated Security was founded in 1987. The company also manufactures the Infinity 2020, a fence-mounted, intrusion-detection system, as well as security supplies and services and Cias digital-microwave sensors.
