Security is a vital element in today’s world. Burglars keep evolving by the day, developing new and smart ways of breaking into private properties and making away with prized possessions and other criminal acts. Thankfully, technology has always come to our rescue, helping us feel safer around our properties.
In Toronto, Seismic technology is no longer a reserve for predicting earthquakes only; it has actually found its way to residential, commercial, and industrial properties to help keep unwanted guests away. From outdoor security to military support, there are many applications that are changing the way people in Toronto view seismic technology.
- Outdoor Security
A seismic outdoor intruder technology is an underground system characterized by seismic sensors and a self-learning algorithm that is able to detect threats of all kinds. It can sense vibrations from such things as moving vehicles, footsteps, and digging—both above the ground and underneath. Once the system is certain of an intrusion, it will record the waves echoed through the earth and trigger an alarm long before the intruder sets foot in your property.
The beauty with the invisible fence is that it is convenient. Since it is installed underground, it doesn’t tamper with the appearance of the property. The system can also withstand adverse Toronto weather conditions without compromising its effectiveness.
- Border Surveillance Applications
Like home burglars, drug dealers and smugglers have also developed sophisticated methods of carrying out their activities. For a long time now, Toronto border patrollers have suffered through many successful break-ins of these criminal minds. However, with seismic technology, border surveillance seems to be quite promising. Authorities can use effective standalone seismic sensors installed at any part of the property to curb intrusion. The principle of working is the same as the outdoor home security system above. The system is able to recognize threats in its vicinity using its complex algorithms offering advanced protection to property and assets.
- Oil And Gas Exploration
Apart from security, seismic technology is massively utilized in gas and oil exploration. The principle is known as reflection seismology and it is basically where seismic waves, used to study earthquakes, are directed deep into the earth’s surface then allowed to bounce back. The behavior of the waves is then recorded by geophysicists using sensors (also referred to as geophones) located below the earth’s surface. The technology requires some sort of an energy source (the most common one is vibroseis) to apply a base to the Earth and vibrate it over a certain frequency range. From the recordings of the waves, geophysicists are able to analyze whether there’s any possibility of oil or gas in that region.
- Tactical Security
If you have a need for an unattended ground sensor, you can get a portable tactical kit which has been tested and proven effective by Toronto Military and other law enforcement agencies. Like the perimeter fence, it is buried in the ground and detects seismic waves from intruders without being detected. Furthermore, it is portable, meaning you can carry it with you anytime you need it.
Physics has made the lives of Toronto residents much more comfortable by making their properties, homes, families, and businesses safer. Seismic sensor systems are reliable, effective, easy to install, and easy to maintain.
