In today’s world, security has become an important concern for everyone, be it individuals, businesses or organizations. While security measures have been increasing, the need for advanced and reliable security solutions has also been increasing. One of the key components of any security solution is perimeter security. A-1 Fence, a leading perimeter security solutions provider, has launched FenSense™, the ultimate perimeter security solution that combines physical security fences with cutting-edge intrusion detection electronic technologies. This blog provides an overview of FenSense™, its components, variants, features, and how it detects intrusion.
FenSense™ is a state-of-the-art product that combines physical security fences with cutting-edge intrusion detection electronic technologies. It works on FICID (Fence Impedance Characterization for Intrusion Detection) algorithm (patent applied) in which changes in the signal through the fence are constantly monitored to detect any attempted cut or climbing intrusion. It is a novel solution in which the fence structure, mesh and razor coils are itself a part of the sensing system, thereby making it completely discreet as no additional sensors are required.
FenSense™ consists of several components, including MeshSense® (Smart Fabric), RazorSense® (Smart Coils), Fence-PCB (Power and Communication Box), Fence Structure, and Cable Tray.
- MeshSense® (Smart Fabric): MeshSense® consists of a Ny-Pro Coated Honeycomb fabric acting as the sensing element with termination beams at each end for connection with Fence-PCB (power and communication box). MeshSense smart fabric can sense climbing, cutting, breaking, and lifting intrusion attempts.
- RazorSense® (Smart Coils): RazorSense® is a concertina coil with Ny-Pro coated core wire acting as the sensing element. It is also connected to the Fence-PCB. RazorSense smart coils can sense cutting, lifting, deforming intrusion attempts.
- Fence-PCB (Power and Communication Box): Fence-PCB is the IP67 rated device which takes care of distributing signals into the mesh and coils, decides if the alarm needs to be raised based on difference in the sent and received signal, and transmits the alarm data wirelessly in a mesh communication to the control room.
- Fence Structure: The fence structure includes vertical poles, horizontal supports, Y-shaped arms, and fitting accessories.Cable Tray: A cable tray is a support system used to securely manage and route electrical cables for power distribution to the entire fence.
FenSense™ has three variants, namely FenSense™, MeshSense®, and RazorSense®.
- FenSense™: FenSense™ comprises MeshSense® fabric, RazorSense® coils, Fence-PCB, Fence Structure, and Y arms.
- MeshSense®: MeshSense® comprises MeshSense® fabric, Fence-PCB, and Fence Structure.
- RazorSense®: RazorSense® comprises RazorSense® coils, Fence-PCB, and Y arms.
FenSense™ has four types of intrusion detection alarm, which include climb detection, lift, displace and deform detection, cut detection, and impact detection.
- Climb Detection: Any attempt to climb the fence causes a lot of disturbance in the mesh distorting the signal in it, which is detected by FenSense™, and it raises an alarm.
- Lift, Displace & Deform Detection: FenSense™ can detect even slight lift, displacement and deform on the fence, generating an alarm.
- Cut Detection: Cutting the fence disrupts the structural integrity of the fence, raising an alarm.Impact Detection: FenSense™ detects and alerts the user when there is an impact on the fence.
FenSense™ is a comprehensive security solution that provides a range of features to ensure that your property is secure. Here are some of the key features of FenSense™:
- Cutting-edge intrusion detection: FenSense™ uses the Integrity Sensor and advanced technology to provide highly effective intrusion detection. The system can detect any disturbances with its advanced algorithms.

- Redundancy: The system can be configured in redundant mode to address single points of failure. This means that even if one part of the system fails, the other parts will continue to function, ensuring that your property remains secure.
- Easy & fast communication: The Fence-PCB creates a self-aligning wireless mesh network for easy and fast communication. This ensures that the system can quickly detect and alert you to any intrusions.
- Third Party Integration: The system can be integrated with third-party software through API. This allows you to connect FenSense™ to other security systems, providing a more comprehensive security solution.
- Easy on-site repair: The system’s easy-to-use repair kit lets you fix cuts on-site quickly and easily, without any special skills or training. This means that you can repair any damage to the system quickly, ensuring that it remains fully functional.
- Long life: FenSense™ uses superior raw material and Ny-Pro coating to ensure protection against corrosion and wear, making it a long-lasting security solution.
- Customizable and easy to install: FenSense™ comes in multiple height options and easy fixtures, making it ideal for any property type. This ensures that the system can be customized to meet your specific security needs and can be installed quickly and easily.
- Compact and Discrete: The Fence-PCB is uniquely compact and discrete, allowing it to be mounted easily. This means that the system is unobtrusive and does not detract from the aesthetics of your property.
How FenSense™ Detects Intrusion?
FenSense™ uses a range of sensors and algorithms to detect intrusion. The Fence-PCB uses the FICID algorithm to decide if the signal received from the MeshSense and RazorSense is matching with the signature of intrusion activity. If an intrusion is detected, the Fence-PCB raises an alarm that gets transmitted wirelessly to the Master controller via adjacent Fence-PCBs. The Field Controller then raises a local Audio Visual alarm and converts the alarm information received wirelessly into TCP/IP format. The alarm data is then transmitted into the core communication backbone via a network switch. The A-1 Vigil software receives the alarm data via the core communication backbone and provides accurate location of intrusion attempt over a map-based UI along with AV alarm.
FenSense™ can be used in a variety of applications due to its customizable nature and highly effective intrusion detection capabilities. The system is ideal for securing sea ports, borders, data centers, factories, railway tracks, expressways, airports, residential buildings, IT parks, hospitals, and more.
For sea ports, FenSense™ can be used to secure the perimeter and prevent unauthorized access to restricted areas. The system can detect any attempts to climb over the fence or cut through it, ensuring the security of the port.
