Alarm on perimeter flexible fences

Find out more on the easy and secure solution to detect intrusions on flexible fences (i.e. the ones sold in rolls).

How the system works on flexible fences

Flexible fences, like chain link fences, can be easily and effectively protected by attaching a plastic fiber cable LiteWIRE to it and connecting the cable to an analyser, LiteFENCE. This analyser sends and receives an encrypted optical signal, which cannot be tapped or replicated, and continually checks for variations generated by stresses on the plastic fiber. When the signal received by LiteFENCE has variations or interruptions, the analyser generates an alarm. LiteFENCE is not sensitive to vibrations on the plastic fiber, which eliminates false alarms caused by vibrations (e.g. weather conditions, vehicles passing by…)

All the area inside and outside the fence remains fully available and walkable: people and vehicles can move near the fence also when the perimeter protection system is active. Anti-intrusion detection can be kept active also H24.

The perimeter intrusion detection  system for flexible fences is composed of 3 elements:

  • LiteFENCE: an optical analyser that sends a light signal and analyses the flow of light it receives.
  • LiteWIRE: the cable in plastic optical fiber (with anti-UV filters) which transmits the light signal
  • Tensioning bolts: opto-mechanic accessories which transform the flexion of the cable into a variation of light signal

A user-friendly, built-in Power Meter helps the installer check if the fiber has been placed correctly thoughout the installation.

When an attempt of climbing over/lifting the fence causes flections of the fiber or interrupts it, the optical analyser LiteFENCE detects the variations of the light signal and triggers an alarm. After that, if the fiber has remained intact, the system re-sets automatically, adapting to the (new) position.

Wind and vibrations caused by weather conditions and moving vehicles do not cause the fence to bend and so they do not trigger any alarms. For this reason, the installation of the perimeter protection system is simple, free of false alarms and does not require the learning of any software program.

In case of a 1.8m high fence:

  • 1 fiber to detect breaking through and, depending on the fence, attempts to climb over;
  • 2 fibers  to detect climbing over and lifting ;
  • 3 fibers  to detect climbing over and lifting on 2m high fences;
  • 4 fibers  to create an anti-breach barrier, which is difficult to overcome even in case the fence is cut

“Incredibly robust to false alarms”

  • Analyser LiteFENCE: one every about 250m of fiber

  • Type of plastic fiber LiteWIRE simplex anti-UV

  • Affixing elements Tensioning bolts, one every about 10m of fiber


  • Easy and quick to install by anyone
  • No false alarms due to weather conditions
  • No maintenance or adjusting required after installation (slow changes, like temperature changes, growth of vegetation and aging of components, are automatically adjusted)
  • Suitable also for sloping and terraced grounds too
  • No need for long calibration operations or vegetation maintenance
  • Plastic fiber is easy to repair
  • Active also h24
  • All the area is avalable
