What is the best intrusion detection system for both powered and unpowered installations?

Hello, Detection: Doors are equipped with dry-contact sensors, ditto for access covers, and screens on ladders. Some installations are protected by motion detectors. I have also seen infrared barriers used by my colleagues in urban areas to safeguard drinking-water plants. They were placed on the perimeter at angled sections of the fence. Alarms: Sirens are placed inside the installations; the duration and volume is adjusted so that if they go off, the inconvenience to people in the vicinity is kept to a minimum. Plants have volumetric motion sensors that illuminate specific zones and deter intruders. It also makes it easier for operators to move about at night. Central monitoring station: Only the newer plants are set up that way, and the equipment is similar to residential installations. Power As far as I can tell, this is a particularly important point: surge protection, battery backup, alarm that detects perimeter or interior space intrusion in backup mode. I am not sure whether a solar-powered system would work.
Are you aware of any framework agreement for an intrusion detection system with an authorized supplier in your area?
