The D-Fence’s D-Step Electronic Floor Tile is a unique and innovative electronic security system that can be installed under any type and size of floor tile to provide extremely reliable security 24 hours a day, with Zero False Alarms, to passageways, stairways, entrances to rooms/offices and sensitive areas, access to safes and safe box rooms, under decks, around swimming pools, etc. Built from floor tiles (that can be metal, stone, porcelain, wood, vinyl, etc.) equipped with D-Fence’s unique Strain Gauge Sensors, the system can be installed on any surface and any specific place that needs to be protected, yet it’s completely invisible, since it looks just like any other of the floor tiles at the site.

The D-Step Electronic Floor Tile provides an immediate and accurate alarm/warning when stepped on it (while the system is armed) activating D-Fence’s unique Strain Gauge Sensors that are typically set to alert when forces greater than 15 kgs. are applied to them. This ensures that the system will not be activated by small animals, ground tremors, people walking near the tile (but not stepping on it), etc. ensuring an almost Zero False Alarm Rate.

Key Benefits
