By nature, radar isn’t dependent on visibility. And it’s not “fooled” into reacting erroneously to things like moving shadows, beams of light, small animals, or insects. So you get reliable detection and keep false alarms to a minimum.

Keep false alarms to a minimum

The strongest security solutions take advantage of a strategic mix of technologies to achieve the best results. Every tool in the toolbox has a role to play, and radar’s is an important one. 

Radar keeps false alarms to a minimum. And it provides crucial information about detected objects that video cameras can’t – such as their exact position, and the speed and direction of their movement.  

It is perfect for wide-open, outdoor areas with moderate activity. For example fenced-off area for stock or industrial sites or even to detect façade climbers and to prevent intrusion from the roof. 

It’s getting better all the time. Radar detection is the solution.

Radar uses electromagnetic waves to detect movement and is not sensitive to the things that normally trigger false alarms like moving shadows or light beams, raindrops or insects. So false alarms are less likely to distract your staff from real threats – and cost you money. Radar is accurate 24-hours a day. 

A motion detector based on radar is the perfect complement to your Axis video surveillance system. In addition to triggering an alarm when it detects an intruder, it can also trigger recording for visual verification. And they’re quick and easy to integrate with AXIS Camera Station, AXIS Device Manager and partner video management systems.
