When the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union, a world of uncertainty unfolded for those doing business in the UK and the EU. The referendum was passed in July 2016. Including subsequent delays, the separation was completed after four years in January 2020, with a transition period ending December 2020. Even with the deadlines past, there are still pockets of uncertainty stemming from the separation. We asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: How has Brexit affected the security industry?
STANLEY Security, global manufacturer and integrator of comprehensive security solutions for a wide range of industries, has broadened its alarm verification offerings with STANLEY’s Thermal Perimeter Detection, a solution that provides a reinforced layer of identification and verification protection against intrusion, theft and damage in outdoor spaces with the use of thermal sensors and intelligent analytics. With the mounting number of high-value assets being stored outdoors for multiple industries including equipment rental, utilities, vehicle service and repair, warehouse and industrial parks, these commercial properties often do not have adequate security to safeguard against outdoor crime. STANLEY Thermal Perimeter Detection utilises outdoor thermal sensors to detect an intruder’s heat signature STANLEY Thermal Perimeter Detection STANLEY Thermal Perimeter Detection utilises outdoor thermal sensors to detect an intruder’s heat signature, while intelligent analytics discriminate between humans and environmental noise. This combination allows for everyday movements that may cause false alarms – headlights, reflections, small animals, trees – to be disregarded while identifying possible threats. Unlike outdoor cameras and other detection solutions, STANLEY Thermal Perimeter Detection can also identify intruders within complex lighting, complete darkness or harsh environmental conditions like fog, rain or snow. Each perimeter can be customised based on the requirements of the customer, whether detecting an intruder climbing a fence or entering an off-limits zone normally void of foot traffic. Once an alarm is activated, alarm details and thermal video evidence are instantly transmitted to professionals at the STANLEY monitoring center Thermal sensors and advanced analytics Once an alarm is activated, alarm details and thermal video evidence are instantly transmitted to professionals at the STANLEY monitoring center for verification. Upon verification of an actual intruder, police are notified of a crime-in-progress, which normally results in faster response times. This increases the probability of apprehension and reduction of business losses due to theft and damage. “Thermal sensors are essential for businesses, industrial sites, warehouses and other commercial properties that have high-value assets stored outside their facilities,” said Brad McMullen, Vice President Marketing and Product Solutions, STANLEY Security. “With the combination of thermal sensors and advanced analytics, our Thermal Perimeter Detection solution allows STANLEY’s expert monitoring team to quickly verify intruders, reduce false alarms and increase the probability of police apprehension.”

When a shot is detected, the Guardian System instantly alerts users to the location of shots on a mapping interface and simultaneously sends this information by SMS text message, email and via other third-party alert systems. The Guardian System has been installed throughout schools, businesses, airports and other public and private buildings and has over 20 million hours of operational time with zero false alerts. With the Guardian System, critical information is immediately relayed to building occupants and emergency personnel so that proper steps can be taken to control the situation as quickly as possible. “STANLEY has been a leader in security for decades, and we are excited to partner with a global company so well-known and respected in the industry,” said Dan Michelinie, Sr. Director of Sales & Business Development, Shooter Detection Systems. “As the number of incidents continues to increase at an alarming rate, the joint presence of SDS and STANLEY will allow this advanced solution to reach more schools, businesses, hospitals and ultimately, improve emergency response time.”
