Keeping family and property safe

High-end residential security systems need to address many threats, keeping families, their homes and their possessions safe. Detecting the presence of trespassers or intruders early is essential in giving enough time for determining an appropriate response. OPTEX is an expert in outdoor and indoor intrusion detection and offers a wide range of reliable sensing technologies which are at the heart of an effective security solution.

All OPTEX sensors can be connected to a wired or wireless intrusion alarm panel to trigger an alarm, an audio system, a security fog system, or a CCTV system so an intrusion can be visually verified.

High-end residential perimeter protection

Intelligent residential security starts on the outside

Time is vital when it comes to security and the earlier an intruder is detected, the earlier the security staff or home owners can react. A robust security system starts at the perimeter, detecting suspicious behaviour such as people loitering outside the property or trespassing the boundary of the perimeter. OPTEX’ sensing technologies add a level of security to boundary walls and fences by detecting a person climbing over or cutting through it.

The sensors are the cornerstone of wider security system and can trigger an alarm, lighting, CCTV, a voice warning and alert on-site or remote security staff as to a possible incident.

OPTEX perimeter security sensors are designed to provide outstanding detection performance outdoors, in any weather and lighting conditions, and are tolerant to small animals. A choice of intrusion detectors is available to suit different types of perimeter lay-out and levels of security required.

Infrared beams can be mounted on top of a fence or wall to enhance the security and detect anyone climbing over it. The versatile REDSCAN Pro LiDAR sensors allows virtual walls and planes to be created to detect loitering, enabling users to set precise detection ‘zones’ and integrate those zones with CCTV.

Our fibre optics fence intrusion sensors are designed for harsh weather conditions, and will detect if an intruder is trying to cut, climb over or even crawl under a boundary fence.

High-end residential outdoor protection

Protect the house surroundings and get early alerts for critical areas

Protecting the perimeter is always the first layer of protection but if someone has managed to get inside the property’s grounds, it is important to monitor where they are and where they go. An outdoor intrusion detection system allows key areas around the house to be monitored giving more time to react and considerably reducing the risk of a break-in. A combination of detectors are available to monitor all outside areas and approaches to the main property, including gardens, patios, outbuildings, swimming pools, etc.

The sensors are the cornerstone of wider security system and can trigger an alarm, lighting, CCTV, a voice warning and alert on-site or remote security staff as to a possible incident.

Low- and high-mount volumetric PIRs provide wide angle protection, and are ideal for protecting everything from open gardens to busy patios. Equipped with OPTEX’ unique detection algorithm the sensors can adapt to their environment and are tolerant to small animals, keeping false alarms to a minimum even in gardens with pets or wildlife. High mount PIRs are perfect if the terrain is irregular.

REDSCAN LiDAR sensors can create a virtual plane that can be used to protect an open area or create specific warning areas, for example around a swimming pool.

With increasing demand for alarm visual verification , OPTEX offers the Intelligent Visual Monitoring solution which enables external sensors to be paired with any ONVIF video device and connected to a Cloud portal to provide a fast, secure and audited visual verification solution.

High-end residential boundary protection

Detect if someone is peering through the window or trying to access the house

Doors, windows and other specific aspects of a building such as a skylight are the last layers of protection before the intruder breaks in. By using external sensors and protecting the access to the building, the intruder will be detected while still outside the house, giving the residents more time to react and prevent a break in from occurring. In many cases protecting access to the ground floor will be sufficient, but there may be balconies, flat roofs and/or windows on upper floors that can be accessed with relative ease, especially with flat roofs, and need protecting too.

OPTEX curtain motion detectors and LiDAR detectors can create a thin virtual layer of protection across the entire building, reliably alerting if an intruder is standing by the door, looking through a window, crawling on the roof or placing a ladder against the wall. Sensors can activate lights, a siren, CCTV cameras or send a signal to security guards, helping to deter intruders and keep a property and its family safe.

OPTEX intrusion detection sensors have the intelligence to ignore smaller animals and to adapt to the environment providing reliable intrusion detection even in locations prone to weather or temperature changes, or false alarms caused by swinging branches or even shadows.

High-end residential indoor security

Quick security response in the event of a break-in

It’s important to detect a break-in reliably and quickly and provide an immediate alert to the owners, tenants or security staff so they can take urgent action.

High-end residential properties may have valuable artwork, jewellery, technology and other high value assets that need protection. OPTEX Indoor sensors can be placed in hallways to alert of an intrusion via the front door, in bedrooms, in living rooms, studies, garages, corridors and in any rooms which contain valuables. The sensors can be part of a wider security system which can also include cameras, sirens, fog systems, door locks and other similar technologies to better protect the home.

For protection at night when the family is asleep, or during the day when the house may be empty, it is important that the motion sensors are not triggered for the wrong reasons. OPTEX indoor sensors have been designed to provide extra stability and maximum performance, featuring digital Quad Zone logic to distinguish between humans and small animals, such as cats and mid-size dogs or if an insect is on the lens.

Our sensors can be added to any alarm panels, and comply with internationally-recognised police and security response requirements.

High-end vehicle detection for residential gate activation

Efficiency and security for residential vehicle gates

OPTEX’ vehicle presence detector provides an efficient and easy way to operate automatic door gates. Because they do not require a ground loop, civil works are not needed, making them ideal for heritage buildings, conservation areas, or any site where any form or digging or excavation is not desired. It also means they are quick and easy to install.

OPTEX vehicle detectors can detect vehicles at a speed from 2 to 20 km/h, and the gates set to open as they approach. Using both microwave and ultrasonic detection the sensor accurately detects cars, vans, motorbikes and other vehicles made with less ferrous materials, while ignoring people.
