SENTINEL FOCUS™ is a state-of-the-art Perimeter Intrusion Detection System with long-range monitoring capability that utilizes Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) to detect and pinpoint the exact location of attempted intrusions into your perimeter. SENTINEL FOCUS can be deployed on any type of security fence to detect cutting and climbing, or it can be buried to detect walking, digging or vehicle approach. By pulsing light down a single-mode sensing fiber, SENTINEL FOCUS can detect events anywhere along the perimeter, up to 40km in length, while pinpointing the exact location to within 5m. SENTINEL FOCUS can be easily installed and integrated into your new or existing CCTV or Access Control system to increase your situational awareness and the security stance of your facility. The system is calibrated to provide very high Probability of Detection (PD) and extremely low Nuisance and False Alarm Rates (NAR/FAR).
SENTINEL FOCUS is also used in border protection applications as part of a Linear Ground Detection System (LGDS). Used in border applications, the DAS technology can detect, identify, and locate border events with a simple and cost effective solution.

SENTINEL FOCUS™ integrates with optional enterprise alarm management software systems, such as the CyberSecure IMS, enabling remote monitoring and management of alarm devices remotely. This provides insight and situational awareness into when and where an intruder is looming, and provides tools for a quick and appropriate response.
For example, the CyberSecure IMS “Rapid Analysis Dashboard” provides:
