The 3D LiDAR sensor features zone monitoring, object detection, and low false alarm rates for security applications.


Blickfeld introduces the “Blickfeld QbProtect,” a 3D LiDAR sensor for security applications. It features software for monitoring zones, fences, and facades, directly processing data on unauthorized entry on the device without additional computers. The sensor detects objects in various weather and lighting conditions, ensuring low false alarm rates and enhanced security. Installation is straightforward, and it integrates easily into standard security systems with configuration through a graphical interface.

The 3D LiDAR sensor is designed for security professionals, system integrators, and property managers who require advanced surveillance solutions. It is suitable for use in various settings, including commercial properties, industrial sites, and public spaces, where reliable perimeter monitoring and intrusion detection are critical.

The technology scans the environment with laser pulses, creating 3D point clouds. Users can define and adjust security zones in a 3D viewer within a browser-based interface, setting object size thresholds for alarm triggers. This minimizes false alarms by excluding small animals or vegetation. Data is anonymous, ensuring compliance with privacy regulations.

Alarm logic is customizable via the web interface, with drag-and-drop functionality. Users can apply presets for triggers and modify conditions as needed, allowing for a customized security solution without programming effort.

Setting up Blickfeld QbProtect is easy. It requires fewer cables since no external computer is needed for data analysis, thanks to its on-device software. Both data and power are transmitted over the same cable (Power over Ethernet). Built on Blickfeld’s Smart LiDAR “Qb2,” the hardware has a design with no rotating parts. Its housing is IP67-rated, protecting against dust and water, making the Blickfeld QbProtect robust, durable, and low maintenance.

Florian Petit, co-founder and CXO at Blickfeld, comments: “The new sensor is straightforward to operate through an integrated web GUI, setting new standards for user-friendliness. Security personnel immediately benefit from significantly improved, anonymous, and highly accurate detection of unauthorized entry into sensitive areas, such as power plants, airports, or other critical infrastructures.”
