Intrusion Prevention

Intrusion prevention is all about taking the necessary steps to keep unwanted and unauthorized visitors from being able to access your property and the valuable assets it contains. Having an effective intrusion prevention system in place—including access control, CCTV, and alarms—ensures you’ll be protected, whether you’re present or not.

At Activo, we work with you to design a custom network intrusion prevention system suited to your needs. We can help you secure entrances through access control, set up constant CCTV monitoring, and architect responsive alarm systems.

Intrusion Prevention Frequently Asked Questions

Should I choose a hardwired or wireless system?

The right answer here depends on your needs and location:

  • Hardwired intrusion systems work by physically connecting sensors to a control panel, using a traditional landline to communicate with the outside world (like a monitoring station).
  • With a wireless system, the sensors are connected to the control panel wirelessly and the control panel to the outside world via a cellular connection.

Keep in mind that wires can’t be run in certain locations, making a wireless, GPS, or solar security system your optimal choice.

How do I decide on the right number of zones?

Depending on the nature of your property (layout, the types of resources it houses, etc.), certain areas need to be protected more than others. With the right intrusion prevention system, you can identify and partition these zones with their own access control and monitoring tools. Our team is able to work with you to determine the number of zones you need.

What environmental factors do I need to take into account?

The key question here is whether components will be located indoors or outdoors. If anything (cameras, keypads, etc.) must be located outside, you need to ensure it will be durable enough to stand up against elements like rain, wind, and snow.

If your components are located inside, make sure you consider any location-specific risks that could affect them. Industrial manufacturing facilities, for example, might need to consider fire- or explosion-proof cameras.

What else can an intrusion prevention system do?

An intrusion prevention system can be crafted to be as simple or complex as you need it to be.

At its most basic, an intrusion prevention system includes sensors at entrances that set off when triggered to deter intruders. Adding CCTV and access control can increase your visibility and allow you to keep track of who’s coming and going.
