Senstar Announces First Major Sale of Senstar LM100™ Hybrid Perimeter Intrusion Detection and Intelligent Lighting System

World’s first of its kind product to protect the perimeter of a $1.5 billion brewery for a Fortune 500 international beverage company

Ottawa, ON, Canada – June 14, 2018 – Senstar is pleased to announce the first major sale of its Senstar LM100 hybrid perimeter intrusion detection and intelligent lighting system. Over 1,300 LM100 luminaires will protect the 28,000 ft (5.3 mi) perimeter of a $1.5 billion brewery being constructed by a Fortune 500 international beverage company.

„The Senstar LM100 is the first perimeter intrusion detection product of its kind to combine two key security features in one cutting-edge product – deterrence (lighting) and detection (vibration-sensing) – illuminating intruders at the fence line and alerting the site’s security management system of any attempt to cut, climb or otherwise breakthrough the fence fabric,“ said Senstar Product Manager Todd Brisebois. „We are honored the beverage company has chosen the Senstar LM100 to safeguard its people and property and are confident the system will provide the desired level of security for the site.“

This project, in which the Senstar LM100 will be coupled with layers of video analytics and surveillance cameras, will be the second partnership between Senstar; the beverage company; A&E firm Benham, A Haskell Company; and installer EON Solution SA de CV. The group previously worked together on the expansion of a brewery site where Senstar’s FiberPatrol fence-mounted fiber optic intrusion detection system was installed to protect a 5,000 ft (0.95 mi) section of new perimeter fence.

„There was not a one-size fits all for the beverage company’s two most recent construction projects,“ said Senstar’s Executive Director of Business Development Nancy Marshall. „But with Senstar’s broad portfolio of perimeter intrusion detection products, we were able to offer solutions that met the different requirements of the distinct sites.“

Launched in Fall 2017, the Senstar LM100 provides fence vibration detection as well as configurable, localized, uniform lighting allowing cameras to operate with a higher dynamic range, ensuring objects and people are illuminated while avoiding the generation of dark silhouettes in front of bright backgrounds. Combining sensing and lighting technologies allows the lighting to be controlled by its sensing which further increases its deterrence capability. With the LM100’s low voltage design, installation costs are kept low as expensive electrical infrastructure or expensive labor are not required, and the need for additional permits, which could be time consuming and costly, is eliminated.

The Senstar LM100 is easy to install and maintain, environmentally-friendly, and suitable for sites of all sizes as a standalone or complimentary perimeter security system, seamlessly integrating with video management and analytics systems, PSIM and security management systems. Senstar has sold several LM100 systems to small sites including VIP residences, electrical substations, marinas and marijuana production facilities.

Senstar LM100 – Die integrierte Lösung für Detektion und Beleuchtung im Perimeter

Senstar stellt eine neue intelligente Perimeterschutzlösung vor

Das neuartige und innovative Konzept eines Zaunsensors mit integrierter Beleuchtung, das LM100 System von Senstar wurde erstmals auf der Perimeter Protection der Öffentlichkeit präsentiert und dabei mit großem Interesse aufgenommen.

Beim LM100 handelt es sich um ein hybrides System welches entwickelt wurde  um der zunehmenden Bedeutung der Kombination von elektronischen Sicherheitssystemen und Videotechnik gerecht zu werden und ein flexibles und universell einsetzbares Produkt anbieten zu können. Zugleich sollte dabei aber auch unter dem Aspekt der Nachhaltigkeit ein deutliches Zeichen gesetzt werden. Dies wurde mit einer 95% igen Ersparnis an Energieverbrauch im Vergleich mit einer konventionellen Anlage mit permanenter Ausleuchtung eindrucksvoll erreicht. Durch die, nur im Ereignisfall aktivierte, Beleuchtung kann zudem die unerwünschte Lichtverschmutzung massiv gesenkt werden. Dieser Effekt sorgt anderseits auch dafür, dass eine wesentlich erhöhte Aufmerksamkeit für ein reales Ereignis erzeugt wird und dadurch auch die überwachende Stelle entlastet und der Abschreckungseffekt vor Ort maximiert wird.

Schlussendlich sollte das neue System auch unter ökonomischen Aspekten glänzen. Vergleicht man die anvisierte Lebensdauer der Komponenten (mind. 15 Jahre) und die Verschmelzung bisher getrennter Leistungs- und Produktmerkmale mit den aktuell verfügbaren Systemen so ist auch dies erfolgreich gelungen. Eine Reduzierung der Gesamtkosten (total cost of ownership) um über 50% über die gesamte Lebensdauer hinweg ist durchaus realistisch.

Das LM100 System ist einfach zu installieren und äußerst flexibel für kleine und große Perimeter, als Einzellösung oder im Netzwerk einsetzbar.

Senstar FiberPatrol – Faseroptisches Detektionssystem

Senstar steigert die Detektionsreichweite des FiberPatrol Systems erheblich

 Durch innovative technische Weiterentwicklung wurde die Detektionsreichweite des fiberoptischen FiberPatrol Systems von Senstar erheblich erweitert und auf 50 Kilometer pro Prozessor gesteigert. Dies gilt für alle Anwendungen am Zaun im Perimeter. Sollte das faseroptische Kabel und damit das System im Erdboden vergraben sein und als Bodendetektionssystem genutzt werden, so erhöht sich die mögliche Detektionsreichweite sogar auf bis zu 80 Kilometer. Zusätzlich wurde die Detektionsgenauigkeit auf bis zu +/- 4 m erhöht.

Damit wurde die Attraktivität des Systems nochmals erheblich aufgewertet; für den Einsatz für sehr große Überwachungsstrecken, wie z.B. den Einsatz als Grenzsicherungssystem oder für große Perimeter bei Flughäfen oder Hafenanlagen sowie Energieversorgung und Pipelinesysteme. Da keinerlei sonstige Infrastruktur für den Betrieb des Sicherheitssystems erforderlich ist und auch der Aufwand für die Installation und Wartung äußerst gering ausfällt, ist das FiberPatrol System hervorragend geeignet für Überwachungsaufgaben jenseits der Ballungsräume und für entlegene Gebiete.

Dabei wird jede Art von unerwünschter Aktivität bei dem zu schützenden Objekt registriert und an die Sicherheitszentrale weitergemeldet um entsprechende Reaktionen zu ermöglichen. Zudem zeichnet sich das fiberoptische System durch Unempfindlichkeit gegenüber elektrischen Störungen und Blitzschlag aus.

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.
