The sooner a facility is alerted to a possible threat, the better, and when a threat reaches inside a facility&rsquo;s fence, it may be too late to mitigate it. Security directors need situational awareness that extends outside the facility and provides the ability to intercept intruders before they become a threat.</p> <p>Zones of interest, or buffer zones, outside a facility&rsquo;s fence line are particularly important for security professionals at facilities such as refineries, electrical stations, chemical plants and other elements of critical infrastructure. Ground-based radar systems are expanding the capabilities of buffer zone surveillance at economical prices and with low false alarm rates. Use of multiple radar streams and &ldquo;behaviour filters&rdquo; to analyse moving targets has demonstrated its capability in such applications to provide an early...Enhancing video security with physical detector technologyhttp://www.sourcesecurity.com/news/articles/co-1261-ga.15338.htmlhttp://www.sourcesecurity.com/news/articles/co-1261-ga.15338.htmlExpert CommentaryThu, 16 Oct 2014 08:00:00 GMT<table style="width: 272px; height: 260px;" border="0" cellspacing="8" align="left"> <tbody> <tr> <td></td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <p align="left"><em><strong>Event-driven video for surveillance and recording involves using a video recorder or video management software system that is triggered by movement in the areas where cameras are located.
