About us

Alarm and monitoring systems for natural hazards

Geopraevent develops, installs and operates premium alarm and monitoring systems for natural hazards. We focus on customer-specific and highly reliable solutions. Thanks to our multidisciplinary team we are able to develop, build and install hardware as well as software in-house. This allows us to act fast and implement projects straightforwardly.

We completed more than 190 projects and have currently more than 70 systems up and running, many of them in high mountain environments. Our systems are permanently connected to our servers. We monitor their proper operation and provide you with the current measurement data on our internet portal. Traffic lights, alarm sirens etc. can alert individuals in endangered areas and automatically close roads or railway lines.

Geopraevent is an independent provider and collaborates with a wide range of geology and engineering companies. It is owned by the Geopraevent management and by Geotest AG.

Why electronic alarm and monitoring systems?

Rock falls, landslides, debris flows, floods, avalanches and glacial lakes threaten roads, inhabited areas or regions frequented by tourists. In such situations, electronic monitoring systems can often complement or even replace structural measures – usually at a lower cost and certainly with a weaker impact on the alpine scenery. In addition, they are installed fast, are flexible in their use and adjustable at any time.
