Multiple Senstar Systems Installed to Protect Major US Airport

Multi-layer intrusion detection solution creates one of Senstar’s largest ever single-facility projects

Ottawa, ON, Canada – March 26, 2018 – Senstar is pleased to announce it has delivered the perfect perimeter intrusion detection (PIDS) solution to protect the perimeter of one of North America’s largest cargo airports. Due to the facility’s unique perimeter security requirements, Senstar combined multiple technologies to form a comprehensive system that effectively protects the airport and keeps the nuisance alarm rate (NAR) low.

“With a busy road running along one side of the airport’s five-mile perimeter, and people using the airport’s fence to lean on while waiting at bus stops, a fence-mounted solution alone would have been an NAR nightmare,” said Nancy Marshall, Senstar’s Executive Director of Business Development. “By combining multiple technologies, we created a system in which a single alarm is not enough to trigger a response, but, if multiple alarms are received, the threat is deemed to be real and a response is initiated.”

Working with A&E firm Faith Group LLC and installer Standard Electric, the multi-layer intrusion detection system has been up and running for several months and the airport is very pleased with the results.

“It was an excellent experience,” said the airport’s project lead. “Standard Electric was very confident in the (Senstar) products. They told us to ‘Relax. We are going to do this right and you’re going to be extremely satisfied.’ And we are.”

Senstar Protecting Headquarters of Major International Oil and Gas Company

Ottawa, ON, Canada – January 17, 2018 – Senstar is pleased to announce its FiberPatrol® ranging fiber optic intrusion detection system is successfully securing the perimeter of the US headquarters campus of a major international oil and gas company. FiberPatrol has been successfully up and running along the site’s 40,000 ft (7.57 mi) perimeter, consisting of three fence types and 40 gates, for several months.

“Going into the project the customer was no stranger to perimeter security with various sites around the world using fence-mounted intrusion detection systems. However, the performance of the previously-installed systems was not always up to the customer’s expectations, particularly in regard to the nuisance alarm rate (NAR),” said Nancy Marshall, Executive Director of Business Development for Senstar. “With FiberPatrol, we were able to address the issue of NAR, as well as meet a number of other strict requirements. The system is working extremely well and the customer is very happy with the results.”

FiberPatrol’s advanced fiber optic technology detects and locates intrusion attempts along fences, offering the lowest NAR and highest Probability of detection (Pd) on the market. It also offers accurate location of intrusions even when there are multiple simultaneous intrusions or in the presence of non-localized environmental noise that would overwhelm the location capability of other long-range fiber optic sensors, and built-in cut immunity, meaning when set up in cut immunity configuration, it continues to provide detection on the full perimeter after a cable cut. FiberPatrol also passed the project’s mandatory penetration testing.

The implementation of this project was a team effort, with Senstar working with integrator Kratos Public Safety and Security Solutions Inc. (PSS) and installer W-Industries Inc. To read a case study on the project, click here.

Senstar Announces Transition to Bring Aimetis Under the Senstar Brand

Company also introduces new integration of Network Manager alarm reporting system and Symphony™ video management system

Dallas, Texas (ASIS 2017) – September 26, 2017 – Senstar today announced the beginning of a transition period to bring Aimetis under the Senstar brand. Senstar, a world leader in perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS), acquired Aimetis, a world leader in video management systems (VMS) and analytics, in April 2016. Since that time the two companies have worked in parallel to continue to provide market-leading PIDS and VMS solutions, but over the coming months, Senstar and Aimetis will become one company, resulting in reduced complexity, improved performance, and unified support.

“Bringing together the PIDS expertise of Senstar with the VMS and analytics knowledge of Aimetis enables us to offer an unrivaled range of innovative security solutions and world-class support,” said Senstar President Brian Rich. “Throughout the transition period we are committed to ensuring as little disruption as possible to our business. Our customers and partners can expect the same accessible, responsive and flexible sales and support they have always relied on, and to be well-informed regarding any changes that may affect them.”

The combination of PIDS and VMS addresses a growing trend in the security industry to reduce complexity by enabling customers and partners to source comprehensive security solutions from a single provider, resulting in reduced costs and greater accountability.

Senstar is also pleased to introduce the integration of its Network Manager alarm reporting system and Symphony VMS (formerly Aimetis). Network Manager is a software gateway that allows communication with a wide array of Senstar sensors, including FlexZone®, FiberPatrol®, OmniTrax®, and UltraWave™. Symphony, the new benchmark for intelligent video management, is an ideal software solution for recording, monitoring and analyzing video from both single server installations and multi-server deployments.

The integration enables Symphony to receive the full range of alarm and status information from Senstar sensors via an IP connection. For each sensor alarm the full range of Symphony’s security responses can be initiated, including commanding camera actions and providing visual and audio alerts.

To learn more about the transition and the integration, and to check out our market-leading PIDS and VMS products, including the new Senstar LM100™ perimeter lighting and sensing solution, visit Senstar at ASIS 2017 Booth 4296.

Senstar Introduces the Senstar LM100™ Intelligent Perimeter Lighting and Sensing Solution

New first of its kind perimeter security product to be on display at ASIS 2017 Booth 4296

Dallas, Texas (ASIS 2017) –  September 26, 2017 – Senstar today introduced the Senstar LM100, the world’s first intelligent perimeter lighting and sensing solution. Combining two key security functions in one cutting-edge product, the LM100 acts as a powerful deterrent against intruders, detecting and illuminating them at the fence line while alerting a security management system (SMS).

“The Senstar LM100’s specially-engineered LED lighting was specifically designed for perimeter security applications and optimized for use with CCTV camera systems,” said Product Manager Todd Brisebois. “With its ability to sense vibrations caused by attempts to cut, climb or break through the fence, the LM100 is a highly effective tool for protecting property and assets from theft and vandalism.”

Consisting of luminaires mounted along the fence, the Senstar LM100 uses wireless self-healing mesh communication network technology to relay intrusion information enabling the system to operate in a coordinated fashion and resulting in robust site-wide security. When networked, the LM100 reports intrusion attempt locations to the site’s SMS to enable a directed response.

The Senstar LM100 provides configurable, localized, uniform lighting allowing cameras to operate with a higher dynamic range, and ensuring objects and people are illuminated while avoiding the generation of dark silhouettes in front of bright backgrounds. Its Color Rendering Index (CRI) of 70+ brings out critical details that enhance video analytics.

The Senstar LM100 is easy to install and maintain, environmentally-friendly, and is suitable for sites of all sizes as a standalone or complimentary perimeter security system.
