Gated Community Solution


Gated communities that are surrounded by fences tend to be considered safer by the people who live there. However, in reality, there are thefts occur by intruders who climb up the perimeter fence to enter the premises and break into homes there. Especially, if there is a vacant lot or a construction site next to them, it tends to be targeted by thieves more, because it’s not observed so much. In addition, at houses near gated community perimeter, there have been cases of intrusions climbing the perimeter fence or electric poles and entering from the window of second floor of houses.

Alarm systems which OPTEX provides, consisting of outdoor/indoor security sensors and control panels, are used for intruder detection in detached houses. However, it is not just for protecting each home. It can also be used to strengthen the overall security infrastructure in gated communities. OPTEX gated community solution provides a seamless security flow which detects an intruder in gated communities in real time, check alarm signals (monitoring), and implements on-site checks by security personnel, so emergency can be found and dealt with in real time and enhance residents’ safety.

Solution 1) Security for Detached Houses

Home CCTV is a useful solution to record and know “What happened in the past”. However, it does not give you any notifications when an intruder breaks into your house. OPTEX believes that having outdoor security is the most effective way to secure your safety.

Perimeter Protection 2Intruders climb over the perimeter fence of your property and enter your home through windows, roofs, entrances, etc.. Alarm systems that use only indoor sensors detect and alert you after intruders have enter your home. So even if they can be detected, there is a risk of theft or physical damage such as broken windows with higher possibility. OPTEX considers that “Early warning” is the most effective way, which detects intruders right after reaching the perimeter fence or garden before they enter your home. It enables you to respond it earlier or even turn them away by the sound of siren. In “Level Surveillance Concept” which we put forward, creating a defense line incorporating three warning levels targeting the perimeter of the property (A Zone), the boundary of the building (B Zone), and the indoor area (C zone). As a result, you can greatly strengthen and improve crime prevention.

Solution 2) Perimeter Fence Protection of Gate Community

PerimeterAs written above, gated communities tend to be considered safer by the people who live there. However, people who do not live in the gated community may climb the perimeter fence and enter the property. Gated communities often have several security guards for the entrance or on patrol inside. However, with limited resources, it is difficult to monitor suspicious people into gated communities attempting to do bad things to each residence without missing. OPTEX recommends installing long-range photobeam sensors on the perimeter fence against this. It triggers an alarm immediately when it detects that an intruder who climbed the fence physically blocks the sensor’s beam. The combination of human security guards and machine-based security systems provides a balanced approach that maximizes security coverage while also allowing for the human judgment and response that machines can’t replicate.

If integrating this alarm system and video surveillance system (CCTV), it enables you to do visual verification of alarm scene for better security response and decision-making but also keep critical evidence.
