Measure: BinaryContacts


Implementation of binary contacts as alarm system at doors, windows or storage tanks. Thus the intrusion of unauthorized personnel to sensitive site is automatically detected. The aim is to be able to react quickly to occuring intrusions.


Different reactions are possible if a binary contact is triggered by an intruder. A silent alarm could be sent to the staff (thus the probability that the intruder is caught by the police could be increased) or a loud alarm sound could be started (this could lead to a flight of the intruder before he/she causes any more serious consequences).
