The continuous search for endurance has transformed the world into a place filled with electronic and digital security systems. Emerging technologies have metamorphosed the nature of surveillance and monitoring applications, but the sensory data collected using these gadgets still remains unreliable and poorly synchronized. In this paper, we detail a research project named Intelligent Intrusion Detection System (In2DS) for remote surveillance and monitoring applications which can greatly improve the existing systems in terms of energy, cost and performance. The motivation for developing In2DS stems from the fact that Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) can provide wider sensing coverage, night & harsh weather surveillance, multi-sensor data fusion and in-network data processing thereby enhancing existing intrusion detection capabilities and improving alarm functionalities. We present preliminary results based on the field experiments conducted as part of the project and provide an in-depth analysis of Passive InfraRed (PIR) sensor detection performance.
