Senstar’s Perimeter Intrusion Detection Sensors Now Certified With Lenel® OnGuard® 7.0

Ottawa, Canada – August 27, 2015 – Senstar, the world’s largest manufacturer of perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS) is pleased to announce its Network Manager alarm reporting system has been certified with Lenel’s OnGuard 7.0 access control security system, as part of Lenel’s Open Access Alliance Program (OAAP).

Network Manager is a software gateway which allows communication with a wide array of Senstar sensors, including FlexZone, FiberPatrol, OmniTrax and UltraWave. The interface provides two-way communications, with the OnGuard system receiving alarm and status information from Senstar sensors and enabling the control of local lighting and audible alerts by managing device relays. Using the alarm information, the full range of the OnGuard system’s security responses can be initiated, including commanding camera actions and providing visual and audio alerts.

Network Manager’s interface with OnGuard eliminates risk of software incompatibilities arising during site commissioning. It also reduces equipment costs by eliminating the need for relay cards and alarm panels.

Stewart Dewar, Senstar’s Product Manager, said: “Interfacing Network Manager with OnGuard allows both Senstar and Lenel to provide a robust offering for customers with options to create a security solution that best meets their needs.”

Senstar has been part of the OAAP since 2013. Network Manager / OnGuard interfaces now cover versions 7.0, 6.6, 6.5, and 6.4.500.

Ottawa, Canada – February 11, 2015 – Senstar, the world’s largest manufacturer of perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS) and now a provider of cyber security solutions has partnered with BGW Technologies to kick off sales of Senstar cyber products in Australia.

Jonathan Johnson, regional sales manager for Senstar Australia stated: “BGW Technologies was chosen as a partner because of the close working relationships they have with their suppliers and the successes they have in the markets they operate in.
