Senstar LM100™ Helping Aim Marine Prevent Theft

Ottawa, ON, Canada – March 19, 2019 – Senstar, a world leader in perimeter intrusion detection systems and video management software, is pleased to announce its Senstar LM100 hybrid perimeter intrusion detection and intelligent lighting system is helping to prevent theft at AIM Marine, a boat and motor sales and repair shop near Ottawa, Canada.

After two thefts from the storage yard, Aim Marine owner David Scott looked to add a layer of security to his 235 m (771 ft) perimeter fence.

“My initial impression was that these systems were cost-prohibitive for a business of my size,” Mr. Scott said.

But after doing some research he learned Senstar has simple and affordable options for small sites, including the Senstar LM100, which combines two key security features – lighting and perimeter intrusion detection.

“The Senstar LM100 luminaires provides high quality, direct illumination along the fence line – deterring intruders and providing targeted illumination for video surveillance systems, all while monitoring the perimeter to detect any attempt to cut, climb or lift the fence fabric,” said Senstar Product Manager Todd Brisebois. “Fully programmable, the luminaires provide general security lighting and can inform intruders that you know where they are by flashing the light. The Senstar LM100 also minimizes light pollution and is energy efficient.”

Following the thefts, Aim Marine was subjected to high repair costs and insurance deductible increases. With the LM100 now on the fence, no repairs are needed and insurance deductibles have been cut in half. The system has practically paid for itself.

Since the Senstar LM100 was installed in spring 2018, there have been no attempted thefts at Aim Marine, and Mr. Scott is convinced having the LM100 lighting his fence has been key in deterring intruders.

“Absolutely the LM100’s got something to do with it,” Mr. Scott said

Senstar LM100™ Receives Fixture Seal of Approval from the International Dark Skies Association

Ottawa, ON, Canada – December 10, 2018 – Senstar, a leader in perimeter intrusion detection and video management solutions, is pleased to announce its Senstar LM100 hybrid perimeter intrusion detection and intelligent lighting system has received the Fixture Seal of Approval (FSA) from the International Dark Skies Association (IDA).

IDA is the recognized authority on light pollution. Its mission is to preserve and protect the nighttime environment and the heritage of dark skies through environmentally responsible outdoor lighting. To help accomplish this, IDA developed the FSA program to provide objective, third-party certification for lighting that minimizes glare, reduces light trespass and doesn’t pollute the night sky.

The Senstar LM100 combines two key security functions in one cutting-edge product, acting as a powerful deterrent against intruders by detecting and illuminating them at the fence line. Its engineered lighting is environmentally friendly (its power-efficient LED technology uses 95% less power than traditional security lighting systems) and is specially-designed to minimize light pollution.

“The minimized light pollution of the LM100 makes it ideal for deployment in urban and residential environments where legislation is changing and general environmental awareness continues to grow,” said Product Manager Todd Brisebois. “Senstar takes pride in developing high quality products that take into consideration environmental impact and receiving the FSA is testament to our commitment to environmental preservation. Thank you to the IDA for this approval.”

Senstar Introduces Flare™ Personal Protective Device Compact

Compact design is ideal for support and administrative staff in institutional environments

Ottawa, ON, Canada – November 5, 2018 – Senstar is pleased to announce a new, more compact version of its Flare Real-Time Locating System (RTLS) personal protection device (PPD), the PPD Compact.

The Flare RTLS keeps staff working in high-threat environments safe by instantly identifying and locating personal duress alarms at the touch of a button. The original PPD is a robust, utility belt-holster device specifically designed for frontline correctional workers. The new PPD Compact provides a smaller, sleeker option for support and administrative staff in institutional environments.

“The PPD Compact was developed to address customer requirements to have a smaller device that could be worn in a variety of ways, including on a lanyard, and still determine the user’s location,” said Product Manager Todd Brisebois. “The new PPD Compact can be worn by non-uniformed staff that may not be wearing a utility belt, as well as by visitors.”

In the event of danger, the user activates the PPD which emits an RF signal that is detected by a network of sensor units concealed throughout the facility. Flare immediately locates duress alarms and displays the location, status, and identity of the PPD on a map-based display in the control room. Flare operates in protected frequency bands that use dedicated spectrum, avoiding the potential for interference. Designed for reliability in institutional and industrial environments, Flare uses patented, proven, cost-effective technology to help keep staff safe.
