Senstar Introduces the Senstar LM100™ Intelligent Perimeter Lighting and Sensing Solution

New first of its kind perimeter security product to be on display at ASIS 2017 Booth 4296

Dallas, Texas (ASIS 2017) –  September 26, 2017 – Senstar today introduced the Senstar LM100, the world’s first intelligent perimeter lighting and sensing solution. Combining two key security functions in one cutting-edge product, the LM100 acts as a powerful deterrent against intruders, detecting and illuminating them at the fence line while alerting a security management system (SMS).

“The Senstar LM100’s specially-engineered LED lighting was specifically designed for perimeter security applications and optimized for use with CCTV camera systems,” said Product Manager Todd Brisebois. “With its ability to sense vibrations caused by attempts to cut, climb or break through the fence, the LM100 is a highly effective tool for protecting property and assets from theft and vandalism.”

Consisting of luminaires mounted along the fence, the Senstar LM100 uses wireless self-healing mesh communication network technology to relay intrusion information enabling the system to operate in a coordinated fashion and resulting in robust site-wide security. When networked, the LM100 reports intrusion attempt locations to the site’s SMS to enable a directed response.

The Senstar LM100 provides configurable, localized, uniform lighting allowing cameras to operate with a higher dynamic range, and ensuring objects and people are illuminated while avoiding the generation of dark silhouettes in front of bright backgrounds. Its Color Rendering Index (CRI) of 70+ brings out critical details that enhance video analytics.

The Senstar LM100 is easy to install and maintain, environmentally-friendly, and is suitable for sites of all sizes as a standalone or complimentary perimeter security system.

Senstar Announces FiberPatrol® for Buried Perimeter Detection Applications

Covert and undetectable fiber optic sensor ideal for protecting long perimeters and borders

Ottawa, Canada – June 2, 2017 – Senstar, the world’s largest manufacturer of perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS), today announced FiberPatrol for buried perimeter detection applications. Using a buried fiber optic cable and a centrally-located sensor unit, FiberPatrol provides covert detection of intruders, vehicles, and tunneling for up to 72 km (45 mi) per processor.

“The advanced technology behind FiberPatrol has been protecting critical infrastructure around the world for many years as a fence-mounted intrusion detection solution,” said Product Manager Stewart Dewar. “Engineered for buried applications, including pipeline protection, we can now provide the same reliable and accurate detecting and locating abilities, with intruders not even aware they are being monitored. These buried detection capabilities further broaden Senstar’s market-leading portfolio of perimeter intrusion detection products.”

FiberPatrol detects and locates a wide range of above and below ground threats associated with long perimeters including borders. From someone walking, running or crawling above the sensor, to heavy vehicle engine vibrations, to digging and tunneling activities, FiberPatrol pinpoints intrusion attempts to within ±10 m (±33 ft) accuracy.

FiberPatrol requires no powered or conductive items in the field, making the sensor completely immune to EMI and lightning and intrinsically safe in the presence of explosive atmospheres. It can accurately detect and locate intrusions even when there are multiple simultaneous intrusions or in the presence of spatially-distributed environmental noise that would mask the detection capability of other long-range fiber optic sensors. As well, the system’s resilient design allows detection to continue right up to the point of a cut in the sensor cable.

FiberPatrol for buried applications is ideal as a standalone protection option or as an additional layer of protection for a fence line. For buried pipeline applications, check out FiberPatrol®-PL.

Senstar Announces Extended Range Detection for FiberPatrol®-PR

Enhanced system more than doubles previous detection range capabilities and allows for more accurate intrusion locating

Ottawa, Canada – May 9, 2017 – Senstar, the world’s largest manufacturer of perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS), today announced that FiberPatrol-PR, its fiber optic fence-mounted sensor for perimeter applications, now provides up to 50 km (31 mi) of protection per processor, more than doubling the system’s previous detection range capability of 24 km (14.9 mi). The intrusion locating accuracy of the system has also improved to within 4 m (13 ft) from the previous 8 m (26 ft).

“This is the second time in just over a year we have implemented extended range capabilities for FiberPatrol-PR,” said Product Manager Stewart Dewar. “By enhancing the system, we are able to provide customers greater protection and more accurate locating with less infrastructure. This results in more economical deployments for long perimeter sites, including borders.”

FiberPatrol-PR uses proven fiber optic technology to detect and locate intrusions. The system has a reduced nuisance alarm rate because it can differentiate between disturbances caused by real intrusions and environmental disturbances such as wind and rain. FiberPatrol-PR can detect and accurately locate intrusions even when there are multiple simultaneous intrusions or in the presence of spatially-distributed environmental noise that would mask the detection capability of other long-range fiber optic sensors. As well, the system’s resilient design allows detection to continue right up to the point of a cut in the sensor cable. The system can also be deployed in a cut-immune configuration.

FiberPatrol-PR requires no powered or conductive items in the field, making the sensor completely immune to EMI and lightning and intrinsically safe in the presence of explosive atmospheres.

Senstar Announces FiberPatrol-PL for Pipeline Integrity Monitoring

Detects and Locates Third-Party Interference Over a Distance of up to 72 km (45 mi) Per Processor

Ottawa, Ontario, Canada – January 26, 2016 – Senstar, the world’s largest manufacturer of perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS) is pleased to announce FiberPatrol-PL, an advanced security system for buried pipelines, optimized to detect third-party interference (TPI). FiberPatrol-PL is the latest addition to Senstar’s renowned FiberPatrol intrusion detection systems, which have been protecting critical infrastructure around the world since 2009.

FiberPatrol-PL uses fiber optic cable buried along the pipeline to detect and locate ground vibrations and acoustic signatures associated with TPI activity. A single FiberPatrol-PL processor can detect and locate TPI over a distance of up to 72 km (45 mi) and within 10 m (33 ft) accuracy.

“FiberPatrol-PL provides the longest protection per single processor currently on the market, addressing one of the biggest issues to effectively securing pipelines – covering long distances between above-ground infrastructure locations where electronic equipment can be installed,” said Senstar’s Product Manager Stewart Dewar. “No electronics, power, communications infrastructure or grounding points are required for spans of up to 72 km (fiber distance), making FiberPatrol-PL a cost-effective solution for long pipelines.”

FiberPatrol-PL detects TPI activity that threatens pipeline integrity: machine or manual digging, heavy machinery operating nearby, and even people walking in the vicinity of the pipeline. The system’s advanced detection algorithms optimize the detection of TPI activity while rejecting nuisance alarms. It can also reject vibrations caused by traffic on roads and railways running parallel or perpendicular to the pipeline.

Senstar Introduces Gallium-PDS

A Passive Detection System (PDS) for cell phones and mobile devices optimized for correctional facilities

Virginia Beach, VA (2015 CMI Conference) – October 13, 2015 – Senstar, the world’s largest manufacturer of perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS) is pleased to announce Gallium-PDS, a passive detection system that detects and locates the illegal use of mobile devices.

“Contraband communication devices are a growing problem for correctional facilities as they undermine the objective to keep inmates separated from the outside world and the crime community,” said Senstar Corporation President Brian Rich. “Gallium-PDS was developed specifically for the specialized complex mixed RF environments of correctional facilities. It co-exists with the numerous on-site friendly communication devices, and can pinpoint use of illegal ones to within one inmate cell.”

Gallium-PDS is built around sophisticated, yet affordable signal processors that cover a wide radio frequency (RF) range and have the capability to scan and focus on individual transmitters, thus ignoring irrelevant legal transmitters within and outside the facility. A network of sensors and processors correlates received cellular signals and generates a map of the transmitting devices, with an accuracy of a few meters (approximately 10 ft). The results are superimposed on a building floorplan which enables a response force to quickly and accurately act on the violation.

“Being a passive detection system, Gallium-PDS does not require radio licenses, there are no legal or environmental restrictions, and there is absolute containment of the protected area with no spillover effects,” said Mr. Rich. “As a result, it addresses many of the shortcomings associated with other solutions, such as wideband RF jammers, managed access solutions and energy detectors.”

For a demonstration of Gallium-PDS visit Senstar at booth 5 at the 2015 Construction and Maintenance Institute conference from October 12-15. Also talk to us about Senstar’s other exciting products: FlexZone our ranging fence-mounted detection system; FiberPatrol, our ranging fiber system which provides pin-point detection for long perimeters; Tungsten, our new cyber security Ethernet switch; OmniTrax, our award-winning ranging buried cable detection sensor; and Flare, our personal emergency locating system.
