Reliable alarm generation with 3D LiDAR security systems
The LiDAR security system captures precise 3D data, allowing it to accurately detect the size, movement direction, and speed of objects within its field of view. This system relies on the reliability of the collected information to trigger an alarm only when an object truly enters the security perimeter, ensuring minimal false-alarm-rates.
LiDAR sensors surpass previous security solutions by consistently delivering high-quality data in various lighting and weather conditions. Additionally, they offer robust resistance to compromise or hacking. The three-dimensional nature of the data facilitates privacy-compliant monitoring of properties and buildings across diverse industries.
The accompanying “Percept” software analyzes the real-time, high-resolution point clouds. This software enables easy zone definition, observation, and accurate object detection. With these exceptional features, the LiDAR security system provides a dependable solution for ensuring reliable security.
Reliable alarm generation
Detecting an object’s size and location serves as the foundation for setting alarm thresholds, resulting in low false alarm rates and preventing alarm fatigue.
The laser-based technology’s intrinsic light source allows for reliable data collection in all lighting and weather conditions, making it suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
Low maintenance costs
Thanks to the solid-state design, the sensors are very durable and rugged, leading to minimal maintenance and reduced maintenance costs.
LiDAR sensors provide a data protection-compliant solution by collecting only anonymized 3D data, ensuring that no conclusions can be drawn about individuals in the monitored area.
Learn in this video how to easily set up and configure virtual zones in Blickfeld’s Percept software to trigger an alarm once objects enter the zone.
3D LiDAR-based security systems have greater reliability, reduced false alarms, and therefore higher levels of security. In this blog we outline several use cases and explain how they function.

Frequently Asked Questions
Cube 1 sensors ship with a mounting bracket that provides a standard 1/4″-UNC camera thread.
For Qb2 sensors, Blickfeld offers different mounting options, including a camera mount that provides a standard 1/4″-UNC camera thread and a pan tilt mount which allows for flexible mounting of both Qb2 variants to both walls and poles. Contact email@example.com for further information.
Blickfeld sensors come with their own Application Programming Interfaces. For the Cube 1 product line as well as Qb2, Blickfeld offers client libraries supporting the C++ and Python programming languages. However, users can implement clients in further languages using the native sensor APIs. Additionally, Blickfeld provides drivers for the Robot Operating System (ROS). Further information and resources can be found at https://www.blickfeld.com/resources/#developer-tools.
Precipitation and other atmospheric disturbances such as smoke, dust, or fog can increase the false detection rate of any LiDAR sensor. However, by experience, Blickfeld sensors perform very well in such scenarios, as long-term installations at the Northsea shoreline, inside waste facility bunkers, silos, and similar locations have shown.
