Intermodal containers can be the target of break-ins and burglary when left unattended since they often contain valuable equipment and inventory. In these cases, a security system consisting of a motion detector and panel can trigger a siren, strobe, or light to deter intruders. Many panels offer wireless communication so that security guards can be alerted if an alarm is triggered.
Traditional motion detectors can be problematic because they are obstructed by the constantly moving equipment inside the container. Many break-ins occur by criminals cutting through a wall of the container, so the obstructed sensor becomes useless. Tomographic motion detector work well in intermodal containers because they do not require a line of sight to detect motion. The entire container is covered by a sensing mesh that is not blocked by equipment or inventory. Tomographic motion detection is not prone to misdetection due to dirt buildup as is the case for beams and infrared sensors.
