Versatile and precise detection with REDSCAN Laser Sensors

REDSCAN is an award-winning laser detector that identifies the size, speed and distance of a moving object and can function in effect like an invisible wall or plane. Using LiDAR technology, the sensors are unaffected by light or heat sources making it a very reliable detection system. With the ability to be mounted either vertically or horizontally and to be used indoor or outdoor, the REDSCAN can be used for a wide range of security and safety applications. It can be deployed to protect perimeters, buildings, skylights, pieces of art or valuable assets as well as to increase safety in public transport by detecting people on railway tracks or crossings.

The advanced LiDAR technology REDSCAN Series feature two products: The long-range REDSCAN Pro and the shorter-range, the REDSCAN Mini.


The REDSCAN Pro is our state of the art, highly accurate LiDAR sensor with our longest customizable detection range yet of 50x100 meters. It is ONVIF compliant and features a built-in panoramic assistance camera for precise event capture and review. The REDSCAN Pro offers perfect solution for protecting large perimeters, roofs, critical infrastructures, commercial buildings, renewable energy farms and industrial sites.


The REDSCAN Mini, is our compact, Grade 3 compliant, indoor and outdoor LiDAR sensor. Similarly to the REDSCAN Pro, the Mini creates a customizable virtual wall or pane and has a detection area of up to 20mx20m across a 95° radius. It’s a great solution for both residential and commercial sites, while common applications include valuable asset, roof, skylights and building protection.

Built-in analytics to analyse the object’s size, speed and distance

The REDSCAN sensor constantly scans the detection area and provides live X&Y coordinates and size information for all objects detected. It enables security staff to follow the movement of the objects and know exactly where they are. Using the size information given by the laser sensor the system can be configured to detect only objects smaller or bigger than a defined size, for instance ignoring vehicles and detecting people.

Independent detection areas

REDSCAN sensors' detection area can be divided in independent zones and for each of them the object target size, sensitivity and output can be customised. With this flexibility one sensor can act as multiple sensors and easily adapt to the site’s requirements. Each zone can be used to generate different events. It can trigger PTZ camera pre-set positions to track intruders across zones; it can trigger lights, a warning system or send an alarm to dispatch security staff.

The REDSCAN Pro sensors provide up to 8 independent zones. The RLS-3060 sensors provide 4 independent detection areas when using analogue connection and 8 when using IP connection. The RLS-2020 series provides 4 independent areas on IP connection.

Transport Protection with the REDSCAN Range

From railway and tunnel protection to airports the REDSCAN LiDAR range offers protection for all types of transportation industries.
