|"Movie makers have also been thinking about this (as have, I'm sure, members of the NSA and other similar organizations). Consider this view of a building interior - suspected enemy of the state Will Smith is the red dot.
(From the 1998 film Enemy of the State with Will Smith and Gene Hackman."

|"I'm pretty sure the 'intruder' alarms of all Star Trek were based on similar tech. The computer knew who belonged, and signaled when a recognizable life force 'appeared'. Of course, I could be wrong."

|"I remember those from Star Trek, but I'm not sure how the computer was supposed to know. ST:TOS had sensors that could look for 'life signs' and could sometimes distinguish humans from others, but I don't know how the computer was supposed to tell if an intruder was on the Enterprise. In the penultimate Star Trek film, Scotty and Kirk beam back aboard the Enterprise while it was under warp drive, and their presence was discovered immediately. Not sure what the 'tech' reason might have been, if any."
