What Is A Perimeter Control System?

Perimeter:  the border or outer boundary of a two-dimensional figure.

Control:      to exercise restraint or direction over; dominate

System:      an assemblage or combination of things or parts forming a complex or unitary whole


Essentially,  a perimeter control system is the method or combination of methods by which a boundary is monitored.  That’s putting it really simply.  

Walls, barriers, and fortifications have been used as control systems for a long time, to protect the sovereign the rights of territories and the assets of individuals.  Indeed, history has a rich array of perimeter systems, going as far back as Hadrian’s wall, erected approximately 122AD by the Romans to protect themselves against the forces in the north of England and Scotland.  Whether man-made or natural landscape features, humans have been protecting themselves and their interests with control systems for many years.

Needless to say, since the days of those early walls and castles, our society has changed dramatically.  We now live in an age of high-capacity digital technology and increasing crime. However, over time, our basic need remains unchanged: the necessity to protect ourselves and our assets.

So, in today’s world of high-security, what does a perimeter control system involve?

Perimeter Security Systems – What To Consider

At Australian Security Fencing, perimeter systems are our specialty.  From high-security fencing right through to the latest in software systems specially designed to control every area of the boundary, we’ve got your property and interests covered.  Information and data collected from integrated devices is passed on to top-level SMS (Security management systems) so that your property can be protected and monitored 24/7.

So far advanced is modern technology, that systems such as Sabra® Fence Detection System have calibrated sensors with the ability to differentiate between genuine intrusion and false alarms.

Why our security systems are unique

Other modern developments such as coded keypads, cards and biometric recognition systems are proving excellent for monitoring and restricting access to high-security areas.  As opposed to traditional locks and keys, these systems record who enters and exits the facility so that management can track and monitor staff and other personnel coming and going at any time.

These systems are invaluable in situations where high-level security must be maintained all the time.  Facilities such as military bases, government institutions, jails and correctional facilities, emergency services, infrastructure and mining sites… the list goes on.
