Senstar Showcases Simple and Affordable Perimeter Security Solution at Security Canada Central Expo

FlexZone® ranging fence-mounted sensor ideal for sites of all sizes

Toronto, Canada – October 19, 2016 – Senstar, the world’s largest manufacturer of perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS) is excited to demonstrate how perimeter security can be extended to sites of all sizes at Security Canada Central Expo in Toronto. Today and tomorrow, Senstar will feature live presentations and interactive demonstrations of the FlexZone ranging fence-mounted intrusion detection sensor and wireless gate sensor, as well as introduce special pricing on FlexZone-4 kits.

“There is a general perception in the security industry that fence detection sensors are complicated, expensive and are only used for high value applications,” said Director of Engineering Bill Hodgins. “While that may have been true in the past, technological advances have led to more simplified and affordable systems. Senstar’s FlexZone is easy to install, hassle-free to operate and maintain, and cost-effective.”

FlexZone detects and locates any attempt to cut, climb or otherwise break through a fence, accurately locating intrusions even when there are multiple simultaneous intrusions and in the presence of background environmental noise. FlexZone can detect and locate perimeter intrusions over a distance of up to 600 m per sensor processor, and within 3 m of accuracy. It has minimal infrastructure requirements and is adaptable to a wide variety of fence types. The Wireless Gate Sensor complements the FlexZone system, addressing the long-standing challenge of installing and maintaining sensor cables on sliding and swinging gates.

Senstar is offering multiple ways to learn about FlexZone at the Expo, including live demonstrations at its booth – 238 – and in a Manufacturer’s Training Session entitled “Six Simple Steps to Affordable Perimeter Protection”. This session will be held today at 3 p.m. in Pinsent 4.

Also today, Senstar will host an Education Flash Session at noon at the Flash Session Stage entitled “Transitioning a Security Product into a Cyber Secure State” and two 10-minute tutorials at Booth 238 at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. entitled “Using Google Earth to Plan Perimeter Security”.

Joining Senstar on its booth is Aimetis, now a Senstar company, offering integrated intelligent video management solutions for security surveillance and business intelligence applications.

Senstar Celebrates 35th Anniversary

Carp-based security company a world leader in perimeter intrusion detection

Ottawa, Canada – October 5, 2016 – Senstar, the world’s largest manufacturer of perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS) is today celebrating 35 years since its incorporation in 1981.

Headquartered off Carp Road, Senstar was founded as a spin-off from Bells Corners-based Computing Devices Co. of Canada Ltd. (ComDev), which still exists as part of General Dynamics. Three of the four founding partners were part of a security systems division at ComDev, and established Senstar with the objective to bring security technologies originally targeted for military applications to the commercial market. Initially a seven-employee company, Senstar introduced its first product, Sentrax, a buried cable perimeter security technology, in September 1982 with early adopters including Correctional Service Canada, the British Home Office and Western Australia Corrections.

Today, Senstar employs 75 locally with sales and technical teams around the world, and boasts a broad range of security technologies including buried sensors, fence sensors, pipeline protection and personal duress. Its market-leading products are found in more than 80 countries, in tens of thousands of sites including borders, ports, military and government, oil and gas, correctional, VIP, and other critical sites. Senstar also operates the world’s most comprehensive private perimeter intrusion security test facility to ensure its products perform in the most extreme conditions.

“A lot has changed since 1981, but Senstar’s commitment to safeguarding people, places and property has always remained the same,” said Senstar President Brian Rich, who is also one of the company’s original employees. “We are extremely proud to reach this 35-year milestone and we are looking forward to continued success for many years to come.”

Senstar is an active member of the community, supporting several local charities and volunteering on local projects.

Qognify Successfully Integrates Situator with Senstar’s FiberPatrol™-PR

PARAMUS, New Jersey, July 11, 2016Qognify, formerly NICE Security, today announced the successful integration of their leading PSIM and Situation Management solution, Situator, with Senstar’s fence-mounted fiber optic perimeter intrusion detection system, FiberPatrol-PR. The integration and joint solution was initiated on behalf of a major utility company in North America in order to enable them to maintain compliance with stringent NERC-CIP regulations and improve security and safety.

NERC CIP reliability standards were developed to ensure the physical security of critical assets that control or effect the reliability of bulk electric systems. Non-compliance can result in heavy fines; as high as $1 million per day, per violation. As per NERC, utility companies must respond to incidents within a certain time period upon an alert.

Fiber Patrol-PR is capable of identifying an intrusion point along a fence with high accuracy, providing up to 14.9 mi (24 km) of protection per processor. When an intrusion is detected, FiberPatrol-PR automatically creates alerts in Situator, which provides operators with situational awareness. Situator can then guide operators to the most effective and compliant response via pre-defined, automated and evolving incident management capabilities. Being able to identify a threat or a problem in real time and handle it effectively and efficiently is critical. Moreover, Situator provides detailed, accurate reporting that serves as proof of compliance for regulators.

Utility companies are faced with heightened security and safety threats, reduced budgets, and ever-increasing compliance pressures. “The Situator/FiberPatrol-PR solution effectively addresses these challenges with the ability to identify, notify and effectively respond in real time to ensure business continuity and compliance,” said Senstars Product Manager Stewart Dewar. “This solution benefits from the inherent reliability of FiberPatrol-PR’s advanced fiber optic technology, with its cut-immune capability.”

Moti Shabtai, President of Qognify: “We are proud to team up with Senstar to help our client, a leading electric utility company, meet the critical challenges of improving compliance, particularly with respect to NERC CIP. The joint solution increases the effectiveness of their security and safety operations and reduces operational costs which are important benefits for any organization. “The automated documentation of every incident’s response allows them to always be prepared for audits and provide proof of compliance.”

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 the FlexZone™ Wireless Gate Sensor

A simplified intrusion detection solution for sliding and swinging gates

Anahiem, CA (ASIS 2015) – September 28, 2015 – Senstar, the world’s largest manufacturer of perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS), is pleased to announce the FlexZone Wireless Gate Sensor which is designed to secure sliding and swinging gates and complements the coverage of the FlexZone ranging fence-mounted sensor.

The FlexZone Wireless Gate Sensor is an accelerometer-based device that detects attempts to open, cut, climb, or otherwise break through a sliding or swinging gate. The compact, all-weather sensor module is attached directly onto the gate fabric and transmits alarm data to a nearby FlexZone processor over an encrypted link. An ultra-low-power device, the sensor module is powered from its built-in solar panel and/or internal batteries, eliminating the need to route cables from the fence to the gate and simplifying maintenance.

“The FlexZone Wireless Gate Sensor addresses the long-standing challenge of installing and maintaining sensor cables on sliding and swinging gates,” said Senstar’s Vice President of Engineering Jeremy Weese. “It can be used on any gate material and since it is separate from the cable-based system, it can be tuned to the specific construction of the gate, allowing for more accurate detection of intrusions.”

The FlexZone Wireless Gate Sensor consists of two main components: the sensor module and a receiver card installed inside a FlexZone processor. The sensor module analyzes vibration, motion and position data. It transmits intrusion and supervision alarms, power levels, RF link status, and auxiliary input state to the receiver card over the encrypted wireless link. The module also includes an auxiliary input cable for monitoring gate latch contacts and/or other on-gate security equipment.
