Empty Building Security 

The safeguarding of high value, unoccupied properties, often with disconnected utilities, can be improved with an AltoNovus Passive Infra-Red Sensor. With a lifespan in the 10-year range, it detects and reports any access, complementing other security measures you may have in place. The same technology can be used to monitor occupancy of spaces, and personnel movement on building sites, in industrial locations or in the work environment. 


The number of passengers on any given bus is likely to be of interest to operators and authorities. AltoNovus sensors have the potential to contribute to understanding that picture in near real-time. The potential applications include the relative prioritisation of buses approaching traffic lights and providing information to waiting passengers.In the longer term, an historical record is built, allowing a bus company, or Local Authority to monitor overall bus route usage.Data can be analysed to enable informed decisions on the frequency and allocation of buses to particular routes.

Forestry and Farms

Security in forested areas can be a problem. Illegal access, logging and poaching activities are deterred using AltoNovus sensors.Sensors can be covertly or overtly deployed, to monitor gates and other areas.Should a breach occur after the site is secured, audible alarms or photographic sensors are triggered and the event is transmitted to a management device, such as a mobile phone, tablet, or computer.


The Alto S30 is a compact, all-weather device, for the remote monitoring of access to buildings or sites in urban, rural, or coastal environments.  With built-in anti-tamper features, it harnesses Passive Infra Red, Contact and Proximity sensors.  The S30 reports to your schedule, but also to User defined events and is designed for exceptional endurance.  Download a Product Brief here.
