A device every 250m (real or equivalent), an amount of cable needed to cover the perimeter (1, 2 or 4 fibres on the fence, a bolt for flexible fences or an SV sensor for gates, two connectors for each device or the LiteWire kit for the first installation.
Any alarm centre can be used.
LiteFence can be installed on any type of fence: flexible fences with CHAIN LINK or rectangular fences: passing the cable through the fence mesh and fixing the fibre to the post using special bolts; RIGID FENCES and GATES fixing the SV sensor approximately every 50m of perimeter; rigid fences or PERIMETER WALLS: fastening the cable to the barbed wire (or steel cable) installed on the brackets.
A single LiteFence covers up to 250m. The devices however can be connected in succession covering perimeters of 6 km
Certainly: fine adjustment is essential to reduce or completely eliminate false alarms: LiteFence has 4 levels of sensitivity that can be adjusted with a mechanical selector, and an adjustment system on the device menu that lasts as long as the break-in
NO! LiteFence is sensitive only and exclusively to the fence being climbed.
On flexible fences, special bolts hold the fibre taught, making the system sensitive to vertical movement in the fence (or the barbed wire) caused by the burglar’s weight. Vibrations in the fence caused by the wind or passing vehicles are ignored.
The SV sensor (patent pending) on rigid fences has been specifically designed to be a natural filter against false alarms and to mechanically damped vibrations caused by the wind, rain and other weather conditions.
After this first filter level against false alarms, there is the LiteFENCE firmware (with 4 levels of sensitivity and adjustable with a mechanical sensor) and the adjustment system on the device menu itself (which lasts as long as the break-in) which completely eliminate false alarms.
Since all Luceat products are based on plastic fibre, they are not affected by false alarms caused by electromagnetic disturbances, ground loops and sounds that are, instead, typical of common perimeter systems.
It is less expensive, it does not generate false alarms and it always functions, even with fog, high temperatures and high vegetation. The alarm activates only after an actual break-in attempt.
The ease of use is guaranteed by the LiteWire cable, easy to assemble and handle. Furthermore, the system is mechanical: just secure it to the fence and turn on the sensor. No training phase is required.
Once installed it does not require maintenance because it is sensitive only to cable distortion. It always functions, even with fog, high temperatures and high vegetation.
LiteFence, besides being simpler and immune from false alarms, has a lower cost compared to microphonic or mems. Its cost varies in relation to the number of fibres installed on the fence and the requested protection level (anti-break-in, anti-climb or anti-cut)

An SV sensor is able to detect an oscillation or vibration up to approximately from 15 to 50m away depending on the fence type (it therefore covers from 30 to 100m of fence); this distance, however, is dependent on the type of fence/gate to protect and how much the oscillation caused by the break-in propagates and, therefore, could be much greater. Indicatively, if the oscillation can be detected by hand the SV sensor will be able to detect it and thus give the alarm
The SV sensor on rigid fences is able to detect cuts in the fence.
A flexible fence installation is able to detect it indirectly, in fact, 3 fibres are fixed in the lower part of the fence (0.25/0.5/0.8m on, for example, a 2m fence), thus preventing a burglar break-in even with a cut.
In the case of flexible fences passing the fibre through the fence mesh with a threading movement each metre, while remaining 50cm from the posts, it is then passed through a hole in the post; the fibre is then fastened to the fence only once, in a central position between the posts.
For rigid fences a sensor is installed every 30m (the distance is dependent on the type of fence/gate to protect and on how much the oscillation caused by the break-in propagates).
LiteFence is not sensitive to vibrations and, therefore winds do not generate an alarm.
