The article discusses various security devices available in the market. Sebring, Florida based Hidden Eyes Interactive offers the Gate Cop, which can notify authorities immediately in the event of gate tampering. The system features strategically placed sensors on a gate system that detect when gates are hit by vehicles, or other attempts to damage the system. San Diego, based PepperBall Technologies Inc.'s launchers are semi-automatic and powered by high-pressure-air. Accurate up to 60 feet, they can saturate an area with pepper irritant from up to 150 feet away. The system allows peace-keeping forces, law enforcement officers, guards or other authorized operatives to deliver a non-lethal yet incapacitating deterrent to individuals or crowds.
