Traditional perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS) can be effective but each technology also has its downsides. Buried cables and fence detection systems are relatively expensive to install, and can suffer from false positives or false negative detections. Even camera based perimeter protection systems can suffer from adverse environmental conditions such as large bodies of water, snow, fog and heavy rain. In addition, some camera systems can be vulnerable to false alarms caused by small animals, leaves and swaying branches.
