OPTEX detection technology protects private homes and property in rural conditions

Harper Security Systems, which specialises in specifying and installing smart security solutions to get residential and private properties, provides selected OPTEX’s range of Intelligent Unaggressive Infrared (PIR) sensors for their dependability in detecting external threats, particularly in rural environments.

3 properties in the Home Counties and Lincolnshire are using a combination of OPTEX’s proven PIR sensors to protect property, people and other important assets including horses from the dangers of vandalism and robbery.

OPTEX’s range includes sensors which offer panoramic 180-degree detection coverage and 12m/40ft radius in order to detect any intrusion around a residential or commercial building. They are ideally suited for protecting larger residential coffee grounds and  flat  roofs typical with outbuilding on farms and stalls.

Working with OPTEX

“We have worked with OPTEX for a number of years and have found their own range of PIR sensors to be incredibly accurate and reliable, which is crucial when specifying external detection, ” says Alan Harper, Director at Harper Security Systems.

“The flexibility and versatility from the sensors is such that they are ideal for several environments, ” Alan continues. “For example, we have recently installed all of them at a private stables in Lincolnshire to protect horses and valuable equestrian equipment, residences in rural villages in both Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire to guard property and personal items, as well as in commercial business environments. ”

Ben Linklater, Sales Movie director at OPTEX Europe, says that while the focus is often on towns and cities, crime in the countryside will be a major issue, costing the rural community in the UK more than £9 million this year alone: “Reliable external protection has become increasingly important not only to secure apparatus and assets, but also livestock and other animals like horses. The earlier the particular detection the better chance there is to prevent intruders.

“External intrusion detection is essential in rural conditions as most assets, many of which are costly to replace (and some are irreplaceable), are stored outside. We are extremely pleased to work with Harper Security who be familiar with benefits of early detection to keep property, assets, people and animals protected, delivering innovative security solutions to their own customers. ”
