Underground intrusion detection

« Back to Glossary Index

Underground intrusion detection is a service performed in the commercial and/or residential burglar alarm industry that involves the installation of sensors and detectors beneath the ground to detect any unauthorized access to a property. These sensors can detect any movement or vibration caused by digging, drilling, or tunneling, and can trigger an alarm or alert the monitoring center to take immediate action.

This service is particularly useful for properties that have a high risk of underground intrusion, such as those located near construction sites, underground utilities, or areas with a history of tunneling or mining. It can also be used to protect critical infrastructure, such as power plants, water treatment facilities, and government buildings.

The installation of underground intrusion detection systems requires specialized equipment and expertise, and should only be performed by trained professionals. The sensors and detectors must be strategically placed to ensure maximum coverage and sensitivity, and the system must be regularly maintained and tested to ensure its effectiveness.

1. What is underground intrusion detection and how does it work with burglar alarms?

Underground intrusion detection is a security system that detects any unauthorized entry into a property through underground sensors. These sensors are installed beneath the ground and can detect any movement or vibration caused by an intruder. When an intrusion is detected, the system sends an alert to the burglar alarm, which triggers an alarm or alerts the monitoring center.

2. What are the benefits of using underground intrusion detection with burglar alarms?

Using underground intrusion detection with burglar alarms provides an added layer of security to a property. It can detect intruders who may try to bypass other security measures, such as cameras or motion sensors. Additionally, it can be used in areas where other security measures may not be effective, such as in rural or remote locations.

3. How reliable is underground intrusion detection with burglar alarms?

The reliability of underground intrusion detection with burglar alarms depends on the quality of the system and the installation. A well-designed and properly installed system can be highly reliable and effective in detecting intruders. However, factors such as weather conditions, soil type, and false alarms can affect the system’s reliability. It is important to choose a reputable provider and have the system regularly maintained to ensure its reliability.
