ARGUS Perimeter Security Solutions
The ARGUS solution provides comprehensive turnkey systems for physical security, intrusion detection, and access control. In addition, the ARGUS suite of fully wireless solutions allows for customized deployments in any environment without the need for pre-existing infrastructure.
More about ARGUS
Originally developed for US defense agencies and front-line warfighters… The ARGUS platform now fits within the industrial sectors while retaining its original objective as a rapidly deployable, constantly evolving, physical security system. Above all, ARGUS provides reliable unattended protection and monitoring for commercial, government and critical infrastructure.
An intelligent mesh network of unattended sensors forms the backbone of an ARGUS system. Furthermore, each sensor serves as both a means of intrusion detection and as a network communications relay to help extend and strengthen the system’s wireless footprint.
Features & Benefits
The ARGUS Perimeter Security Solutions provides unrivaled versatility as it can operate as a standalone system or integrate with existing surveillance technologies, such as cameras and IR sensors, to provide added security. Specifically, ARGUS helps reduce the number of personnel associated with maintaining a safe perimeter by providing real-time intrusion detection. The ARGUS perimeter security system is:
Most importantly, the ARGUS nodes are built to withstand harsh environments and exposure to water and extreme temperatures.
If tampered with ARGUS automatically self-heals the fence with the remaining nodes preventing any gaps.
A perimeter is set up and deployed in minutes, with ARGUS‘ self-location features and user-friendly interface.
ARGUS was designed with portability and efficiency in mind. In the same vein, the wireless nodes are compact and light weight allowing it to travel easily inside a backpack or in a carrying case. This portable design allows operators to easily deploy ARGUS in remote locations.
The ARGUSView map-based user interface is easily operated on any desktop or on-the-go through a laptop, tablet or, phone. Moreover, ARGUSView forwards warnings and alerts to cell phones or remote monitoring stations through SMS and/or MMS.
Equip ARGUS wireless nodes with a variety of sensors. For example, connect GPS modules and multiple video cameras, as well as external power sources including solar panels and external batteries. Above all, nodes are flexible to meet the operational requirement of any environment.
Global Monitoring and Performance Analysis
The ARGUSView software package offers a user-friendly graphical interface to manage and configure the deployed security perimeter. Most importantly, ARGUSView displays all sensors and accessories in one common operating picture on a map-based interface.
For example, ARGUS Enterprise provides subscribers with automated health checks, alert statistics, heat mapping, and software integration support.

The ARGUS Perimeter Security Solutions Family of Products
ARGUS offers a full suite of intrusion sensors, access controls, imaging systems, and control equipment that allows for both off-the-shelf deployments and customized products for multi-layer perimeter security networks. For example, mesh communications networks cross cue external systems/devices through software or directly via the use of ARGUS I/O hardware. In conclusion, these products enhance and expand the overall security posture of the facility by integrating existing and future security devices into one common operating picture.
Optical Intrusion Detection
Optical intrusion detection sensors add a secondary sensing modality to any ARGUS network. Specifically, these sensors provide supplemental coverage to areas out of reach for RF-based devices or create overlapping multi-layered security, further increasing the probability of detection. Moreover, optical sensors integrate through sensor fusion — an algorithm that uses multiple inputs to intelligently detect threats.
ARGUS provides several options for remote video surveillance. In other words, our camera solutions are turnkey systems that provide video or image confirmation of ARGUS alerts with minimal infrastructure or installation. Furthermore, our cameras integrate with systems provided by the customer or can be customized by our security engineers to best fit the intended application.
The ARGUS Access Control devices monitor and regulate physical access to gates as well as identification verification at personnel and vehicle entry points. In addition, these systems operate wirelessly as part of the mesh network communications architecture, reporting status, access condition, and alarms to the ARGUSView user interface.
Guard Force Tracking
The ARGUS GuardTrac products provide real-time, GPS positioning of response personnel. For instance, customize response management to include checkpoint monitoring, cellular-based guard-to-control room communications, map-based alert interface, location-based alert masking, and other performance functions.
