Senstar Receives Lenel Factory Certification Under Lenel’s OpenAccess Alliance Program

Senstar’s Network Manager integrates with Lenel’s OnGuard® access control security system versions 7.1, 7.2, and 7.3

Ottawa, Canada –  April 4, 2017 – Senstar today announced that it has received Lenel factory certification as part of the Lenel OpenAccess Alliance Program (OAAP). Senstar’s Network Manager alarm reporting system now integrates with versions 7.1, 7.2, and 7.3 of the OnGuard® access control system.

“Senstar has completed required factory testing at Lenel to validate the functionality of its interfaces to OnGuard 7.1, 7.2, and 7.3,” said Zach Roth, OAAP Project Management, Lenel. “We look forward to Senstar’s continued involvement in the Lenel OpenAccess Alliance Program.”

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.

“Providing our customers with software integration to OnGuard reduces equipment costs by avoiding the need for relay output modules and corresponding alarm panels, and having the integration certified by Lenel eliminates the risk of software incompatibilities arising during site commissioning” said Senstar Product Manager Stewart Dewar.

Senstar has been part of the OAAP since 2013. Network Manager / OnGuard interfaces now cover versions 7.3, 7.2, 7.1, 7.0, 6.6, 6.5, and 6.4.500.

Senstar Introduces New Version of FiberPatrol-ZR

Longer detection capability provides customers with more protection options

Ottawa, Canada – December 22, 2016 – Senstar, the world’s largest manufacturer of perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS), is today announcing a new version of FiberPatrol-ZR, its zone-reporting fiber optic fence-mounted intrusion detection system. The new version doubles the detection capabilities of the original system to 5 km (3.1 mi) per processor.

“This new version of FiberPatrol-ZR provides additional perimeter length options for customers looking to secure their sites with proven fiber optic sensor technology,” said Product Manager Stewart Dewar. “It combines the cost-effectiveness of a zone-reporting system with most of the performance capabilities and features of a more expensive long-range fiber optic system.”

FiberPatrol-ZR shares many features with Senstar’s FiberPatrol-PR system optimized for long perimeters, including dual sensing channels enabling a cut immune configuration. The system has a reduced nuisance alarm rate because it can differentiate between disturbances caused by real intrusions and environmental disturbances such as wind and rain. FiberPatrol-ZR can detect and accurately locate intrusions to the zone 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.

Compared to hardware-zone systems that require zone start/end modules and/or breakout boxes to define zone boundaries, FiberPatrol-ZR uses optical time-domain reflectometry to accurately determine the location of intrusions and then creates virtual zones in software. The result is a centralized sensor unit with only a continuous run of fiber optic cable on the fence, dramatically reducing installation cost and time.

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.

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 Introduces the UltraLink Rugged Controller

Remote management device for Senstar sensors with automated alarm response

Las Vegas, Nevada – April 6, 2016 – Senstar, the world’s largest manufacturer of perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS), is pleased to announce the UltraLink Rugged Controller, a ruggedized, embedded controller for unmanned sites that enables remote management of Senstar security sensors and allows local control of security functions.

Stewart Dewar, Senstar’s product manager, said: “The UltraLink Rugged Controller provides organizations with multiple unmanned sites a simplified means for alarm reporting and remote maintenance in a single device that does not need to be installed in an environmentally-controlled location.”

The UltraLink Rugged Controller connects to a site’s Senstar sensors and I/O devices and provides a standard Ethernet/IP-based interface for communication with the Security Management System (SMS) using the facility’s own WAN/SCADA network. This provides a common network access point from which all configuration and calibration can be done, and event log data can be viewed. Maintenance visits to sites are reduced, as is the need to access individual sensors when site visits are required.

The Controller can be programmed to activate video recording and deterrence devices (lights, sirens, etc.) in response to sensor alarms or diagnostic events. Alarm response actions will occur even if network connection to the central SMS is temporarily lost.
