What is a Perimeter Security System and Why Do You Need One?

A security system for fences uses the property boundary barrier and gives the owner a buffer time against intruders since it’s located away from the main building outline or footprint. A fence with a sensor cable marks your perimeter, offers a clearly defined boundary, and acts as the first line of defense and detection against trespassers. Perimeter security isn’t just about protecting the building on the property. It also addresses the areas outside the facility, such as the parking lot and garage, landscaping, loading docks, and outdoor equipment.


  1. The fence alarm system allows you to receive an “early warning” that someone is trespassing.
  2. Fence alarms allow you to “react” by triggering sirens, strobe lights, or other measures to scare the intruders away.
  3. Transforms a standard fence into an innovative barrier with no extra cost for infrastructure.
  4. The fence Alarm system is the economical way to secure the whole perimeter with an existing burglar alarm system, the IRONCLAD is just another zone/sensor in your burglar alarm.
  5. Loss prevention and return on your investment, achieve peace of mind knowing that when you are away, there’s a way to receive real-time alarms for intruders when they are on the IN and not when they are already in the middle of the job.


1. Cameras are a forensic tool, in most cases, you will see the video AFTER the event already ended. It does not help you stop or prevent the break in event.

2. Usually, cameras won’t cover 100% of the perimeter, in comparison to a fence alarm system you will always have blind spots where people can come in undetected.

3. Video analytics ability to detect is heavily relying on its ability to “see”, it’s a common mistake to think it will be able to monitor the perimeter 365/24/7. If weather conditions or objects (Vehicles, solar panels, containers) will block its line of sight the camera won’t able to detect an intrusion.

4. If you currently have no outdoor security the trespasser has an opportunity to plan their attack by surveying the area from the outside without being detected.

5. Indoor security does not protect the outside of your building, nor any items, property or machinery left outside of the alarmed zone.

You Need Active, Not Passive Perimeter Security Sensors.
Detect and Stop Intruders at Your Fence Line

A fence or bard wires are not enough!


The IRONCLAD is a shock detection system for fences, the cable is attached to the fence to detect any cutting, climbing, lifting, or jumping off the fence. A single line of the cable in the middle of the fence will detect the whole height of the fence up to 10ft/3m against any intrusion attempt.

Each processor/analyzer can monitor up to 2 zones with a separate alarm output per zone, the IRONCLAD is sold in pre-made and pre-cut in 250’/500’/1000′ (75m/152m/305m) lengths.
The IRONCLAD is designed to connect to any alarm system and can retrofit to old or new burglar alarms/DVR/NVR/SCADA systems.

Fully wrapped by stainless steel braid, the IRONCLAD is ideal for installation on wire fences, razor wires, and concertina coils.

How Do the IRONCLAD Perimeter Sensors Detect Intruders and Not Wind?

The system utilizes three layers of false alarm filtration. 

1. The detection algorithm is designed to detect only sharp frequency vibrations associated with intrusion attempts while filtering the low frequencies from the weather conditions.

2. Automatic real-time alarm threshold adjustment with wind rejection.

3. 500 sensitivity levels are easily adjusted to adapt the sensor sensitivity to the fence condition.

IRONCLAD Fence Alarm System

Sensor Layout of the Fence Alarm System Is:

1. Sensor Cable is pre-cut in 250ft/75m, 500ft/152m and 1000ft/305m

2. Each LPU Processor (Analyzer) can monitor up to 2 zones (spools)

3. Maximum length per Processor is 2000ft/600m of sensor cable, 2 zones of 1000ft/305m

4. Each kit also includes an LPU processor in a weatherproof enclosure and sensor cable in the chosen length

5. To cover larger perimeters, there is an option to combine as many kits as needed.
