As a general note, if you have a suggestion for an intrusion alarm platform or product profile, please share it here.

Hi Brian,

I don't know if it's available in the US, guess so, but Vanderbilt SPC series panels are interesting however also more at the higher end on pricing.

I call them interesting because they're fully configurable throught the built in web server and it's all the way in HTML5 so works with almost any browser, no plugin misery.

Brian, I suggest starting a parallel series for wide-area intrusion detection/alarm.

Per recent NERC (nerc.com) and FERC (ferc.gov) standards and regulations, Electricity, Oil/Gas, and Water generation and transmission sites require better security than they currently have.

The problem is that the solutions vary widely, from cameras, to fiber fencing, radar, barbed wire, and more. They are also expensive.

IPVM has covered most of these technologies in the past, but they are all due a refresh.

Brian you should test ICT access/alarm solution.
