Senstar Introduces the Flare™ Real-Time Locating System
Patented RF technology helps to keep staff safe in high threat environments
Ottawa, Canada – April 25, 2017 – Senstar today introduced the next generation of the Flare Real-Time Locating System which instantly identifies and locates personal duress alarms at the touch of a button. Designed for reliability in institutional and industrial environments, Flare uses patented, proven, cost-effective technology to help keep staff safe.
“The technology behind Flare has been in continuous use in high-threat environments for over 20 years,” said Product Manager Todd Brisebois. “Senstar has used this experience to design the architecture and feature set required for a mission critical real-time locating system while offering one of the industry’s lowest Total Cost of Ownership.”
In the event of danger, the user activates a Personal Protection Device (PPD) on his or her belt. The PPD emits an RF signal that is detected by a network of sensor units concealed throughout the facility. Flare immediately locates indoor emergency alarms to within 6 m (20 ft) and displays the location, status, and identity of the PPD on a map-based display in the control room. Pull-pin and man-down (tilt activated) options are also available, and the system can be optimized for outdoor use. Flare operates in protected frequency bands that use dedicated spectrum, avoiding the potential for interference.
Key features of the Flare Real-Time Locating System include low sensor unit density, scalable architecture, IP connectivity, and ruggedized components. Flare is also easy to install and maintain, and requires minimal user training.
