Senstar Products Selected to Secure Multiple Airports

VMS and PIDS products to be used across five sites

Ottawa, ON, Canada – June 24, 2019 – Senstar, a world leader in video management systems (VMS) and perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS), is pleased to announce its products were recently selected to protect five airports in various locations around the world. These sites join the list of hundreds of civilian and military airports currently using Senstar products.

“Airport infrastructure and assets represent a vital economic engine for many cities and countries making them prime targets for vandals, thieves and terrorists,” said Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Jeremy Weese. “Senstar products help to keep operations, goods and people safe and moving.”

Senstar’s VMS, video analytics, and associated hardware reduce operator workload and improve overall security monitoring by automatically detecting persons of interest, items left in public spaces, crowd formations, and wrong way movement between landside-airside egress points. These technologies also streamline operations and centralize IT management in the cloud, saving time and money.

Senstar’s PIDS provide early warning of unauthorized entry onto airport grounds, including into sensitive areas within the apron such as aircraft parking, fuel storage, electrical substations, and navigation/communication equipment areas.

“While Senstar VMS and PIDS are open platforms designed for integration with a wide variety of systems, they  work even better together,” said Mr. Weese.

Built-in integration enables security personnel to monitor a wide range of sensors and cameras from a single workstation, with the end result being simplified operator interfaces and reduced response times. For a real world demonstration on the benefits of integrated VMS and PIDS solutions, watch Senstar’s surveillance video of a recent perimeter intrusion attempt.

The new airport projects use the following Senstar products: Symphony VMS (manages 250 cameras),  Enterprise Manager software (centralized cloud management), Thin Client network video display appliances, Face Recognition, Automatic License Plate Recognition, Left and Removed Item Detection, Outdoor People and Vehicle Tracker analytics, FiberPatrol® fiber optic fence-mounted intrusion detection system, and OmniTrax® buried cable intrusion detection system.

Senstar Symphony™ VMS and Video Analytics Providing Security and Operational Benefits to Hardware and Home Improvement Retail Chain

Ottawa, ON, Canada – June 12, 2019 – Senstar, a world leader in video management solutions and perimeter intrusion detection systems, has published a case study detailing how its Senstar Symphony video management system (VMS) and video analytics are helping Ferretería Ochoa secure spaces and gather business intelligence.

Ferretería Ochoa is a hardware and home improvement retail chain that has been operating in the Dominican Republic for over 45 years. Symphony was first installed at one of its retail stores in 2013 and is now being used at six locations, including a storage facility and a manufacturing facility. Ferretería Ochoa also uses several of Senstar’s video analytics to better understand customer and employee behavior.

One of the main benefits Symphony has provided Ferretería Ochoa is increased inventory control. This not only refers to shoplifting by customers, but also to errors – accidental or intentional – made during shipping and receiving. Employees are aware they are being monitored at all times and understand the system’s ability to capture incidents and provide proof.

“It dissuades deceitful and malicious situations such as shipping more items than ordered or a more expensive item,” said Mr. Gomez. “The deterrence factor Symphony provides is probably the most important result we have achieved.”

Symphony has also enabled Ferretería Ochoa to utilize security personnel more efficiently and has reduced costs by having video from all sites managed from one central location.

“Senstar Symphony and analytics are ideal for retailers looking to deter theft, protect staff and customers and improve the overall customer experience,” said Senstar’s Director, North America Business Development Anthony Hackett. “We are happy to be helping Ferretería Ochoa achieve such results.”

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.”
