|REDSCAN is an award-winning laser detector that identifies the size, speed and distance of a moving object and can function in effect like an invisible wall or plane. Using LiDAR technology, the sensors are unaffected by light or heat sources making it a very reliable detection system. With the ability to be mounted either vertically or horizontally and to be used indoor or outdoor, the REDSCAN can be used for a wide range of security and safety applications. It can be deployed to protect perimeters, buildings, skylights, pieces of art or valuable assets as well as to increase safety in public transport by detecting people on railway tracks or crossings.
|What is a Laser?
The word "laser" is actually an acronym for "Light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation". Essentially, a laser concentrates light to create a straight, ultra-bright beam. Lasers have multiple uses, including hair removal, eye repair, and material cutting. Nowadays, some dentists even use lasers instead of drills when filling small cavities. And, as we are discussing in this post, they can also be a fun addition to a home security system.
Lasers are made up of three main components:
