I would like to know from the group if they have had any experience with a vendor that provides a complete solution for relocatable perimeter sensors. Looking for a stand alone sensor in a tripod that has either a siren or light as a notification system. Must be portable and battery operated. Maximum detection distance would be about 15 feet.

The US military might have surplus ones that might fit your needs

360 coverage or linear focus? I've seen some technologies at the ASIS tradeshow that seem like what you are looking for. Let me dig around for my last exhibitor guide.

There are quite a few portable surveillance/intrusion systems on the market. These have wide applicability, for instance, on construction sites, remote properties, etc.
1. How are you going to protect the system itself? Don't imagine for a minute that an alarm or light would prevent someone from destroying the device or simply hauling it off, so your response capability had better be really, really good. On the other hand, if your response capability is that good, silent notification might very well be a better idea.
2. If the protected zone is outdoors, what confirmation method (e.g. dual detection technologies) will the system use to prevent a large number of false-positives from birds, blowing papers, etc?
3. How will an alarm activation be reset? How will you know that the intruder hasn't simply passed on through the protected zone, rather than retreated? If they retreat, how will you confirm this?
4. How will you be able to verify, on a continual basis and not merely periodically, that units are functioning, or know when (not if) they malfunction, the battery dies, etc.?
5. What weather conditions must this system be able to handle?
I suggest you look for a system that does something more than sit on a tripod and squawk or flash lights. Even if response personnel are on site, at the very least GSM/SMS messaging (including identifiable unit status messaging) would be a start although it won't give you remote reset capabilities. You might also want to augment a system like this with some CCTV or at least video messaging capabilities. Dual detection technologies to reduce false-positives will only seem like a needless luxury until someone has to respond to them.
