Senstar Introduces the FlexZone™ Wireless Gate Sensor
A simplified intrusion detection solution for sliding and swinging gates
Anahiem, CA (ASIS 2015) – September 28, 2015 – Senstar, the world’s largest manufacturer of perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS), is pleased to announce the FlexZone Wireless Gate Sensor which is designed to secure sliding and swinging gates and complements the coverage of the FlexZone ranging fence-mounted sensor.
The FlexZone Wireless Gate Sensor is an accelerometer-based device that detects attempts to open, cut, climb, or otherwise break through a sliding or swinging gate. The compact, all-weather sensor module is attached directly onto the gate fabric and transmits alarm data to a nearby FlexZone processor over an encrypted link. An ultra-low-power device, the sensor module is powered from its built-in solar panel and/or internal batteries, eliminating the need to route cables from the fence to the gate and simplifying maintenance.
“The FlexZone Wireless Gate Sensor addresses the long-standing challenge of installing and maintaining sensor cables on sliding and swinging gates,” said Senstar’s Vice President of Engineering Jeremy Weese. “It can be used on any gate material and since it is separate from the cable-based system, it can be tuned to the specific construction of the gate, allowing for more accurate detection of intrusions.”
The FlexZone Wireless Gate Sensor consists of two main components: the sensor module and a receiver card installed inside a FlexZone processor. The sensor module analyzes vibration, motion and position data. It transmits intrusion and supervision alarms, power levels, RF link status, and auxiliary input state to the receiver card over the encrypted wireless link. The module also includes an auxiliary input cable for monitoring gate latch contacts and/or other on-gate security equipment.
