AEC – Automatic Environmental Control

The world is so full of acronyms, abbreviations and jargon these days that often people stop reading the technical detail. At APS, sorry Advanced Perimeter Systems, we don’t use a lot of acronyms or abbreviations, but when we do they are often important.

Take AEC for instance. Many of our products have AEC circuitry built in at the core of their design. Automatic Environmental Control circuits automatically adjust the signals received in the processor to determine if there’s a real alarm event or if it’s an environmental factor. AEC can be very complex, and as it’s a trade secret I can’t tell you exactly how it works, all you really need to know is that it does, and that the result is more accurate alarm reporting. Essentially AEC adjusts for weather to eliminate false alarms.

You’ll find AEC circuitry in our Microwave sensors automatically adjusting for temperature variations, and in Flexiguard mainly for the effects of wind moving your fence. AEC keeps your FAR (False Alarm Rate) low, without compromising the ability to detect a intrusion event.

Just one of the many ways that APS products keep you safe and secure, reliably.
