SERPE: Manufacturer of Smart Perimeter Protection Products and Systems

  • Because needs in terms of the protection of sensitive sites are growing
  • Because deterring, detecting, and delaying are the essential components of an effective security system
  • Because only innovation ensures staying ahead
  • Because service excellence makes it possible to ensure an optimal level of system availability


Since 1976 Serpe has been designing, deploying and maintaining smart perimeter protection products and systems, adapted to today’s and tomorrow’s safety issues, to guarantee sensitive sites an optimal level of protection.


SERPE: 40 years of know-how and innovation

Since 1976 Serpe has designed and manufactured a wide range of electronic and mechanical equipment to meet the security needs of Nuclear, Military, Prison and Industrial sites in France and abroad.

As the leader in the French perimeter protection of sensitive sites market, Serpe has made the performance and reliability of its products a trademark.
Serpe is ISO-9001 Version 2008-certified and attaches particular importance to the quality of its products.

Since 2017 Serpe has been a part of the Sogetrel Group, a recognised player in the electronic security and digital solutions markets, and Serpe continues to grow to remain the key player in the security of sensitive sites.




  • A team of 40 experts in the perimeter protection of sensitive sites
  • 600 protected sensitive sites (Nucléaire, Défense, Industrie,…)in more than 15 countries
  • 30 patents filed déposés
  • 1,500 km of smart perimeter fences, including 100km exported
  • 100,000 electromechanical sensors installed
  • 250 centralisation solutions in service


Serpe was set up in 1976 in Morbihan (Brittany France) and has a design and production site based in Lorient, as close as possible to its local partners and sub-contractors (electronics, sheet metal, etc.), which enable it to have 100% French design and production.

In its test and demonstration centre, Serpe offers its customers the opportunity to discover and test its products in real conditions. Serpe also uses this test track to put all of its products to the test under various weather conditions.

They have faith in us


Thanks to an R&D team skilled in multiple technologies (electronics, mechanics, IT), Serpe offers a wide range of sensors to meet the security needs of sensitive sites: detection fences, electrified fences, microwave barriers, shock detection cables, etc.

For more than 30 years Serpe has also been developing a complete supervision solution, interfaced with many standard sub-systems on the market, enabling its customers to benefit from a complete chain in securing their installation, from detection to supervision.

With 30 patents and models registered, Serpe is constantly innovating to provide its customers with the latest technological developments.


With proven experience in low-frequency digital and analogue electronics, the Serpe R&D teams manage projects to develop intrusion sensors, interface cards, and more generally “embedded” electronic sub-assemblies: design of electronic circuits for devices, production of integrated software, etc. These skills have made it possible to develop microwave barriers, energisers, seismic sensors, etc.



Serpe’s R&D mechanics teams are involved in the design of fence solutions offered in the catalogue or customised.
These solutions are instrumented using Serpe electronic sensors, in order to offer turnkey solutions that best combine Deterrent, Repellent, Detection and Delaying aspects.
In order to offer complete solutions, Serpe teams also customise instrumentation of gates, buildings, etc.



It is thanks to the skills of the Software R&D teams that the ERYvision supervision system was born, the latest in a long line of supervision systems, designed over more than 30 years by the Serpe teams.
ERYvision is now a unified supervision solution, integrating video surveillance, access control, anti-intrusion, etc. within the same software. Gateways are also at your disposal to enable security systems to interface with each other. Each Serpe sensor is configurable via the SERPE-Config setting software developed by the Serpe teams.





For more than 40 years, Serpe products have been a real success in the most extreme climatic environments: deserts, tropical climates, marine environments, etc.
Serpe has the organisation to help its clients complete export projects, with many successes throughout its history: Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, French overseas departments and territories, Guinea, Cameroon, Togo, Nigeria, Egypt, Kuwait, Lebanon, the European Union, Ukraine, Armenia, China, Libya and Zimbabwe.
