About us

Alarm and monitoring systems for natural hazards

Geoprevent 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 250 projects and have currently more than 100 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.

Geoprevent was founded in 2013 by Lorenz Meier and Geotest AG. Since 1 January 2020, it is part of Hexagon, a global leader in sensors, software and autonomous solutions. Hexagon (Nasdaq Stockholm: HEXA B) has approximately 21,000 employees in 50 countries and net sales of approximately 3.8bn EUR.  Learn more at hexagon.com and follow us @HexagonAB.

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.

Our customers

Our customer include federal and local authorities, railways or private infrastructure operators such as hydroelectric power plants. Learn more about our customer projects.
