Ottawa, ON, Canada–October 24, 2018–Senstar, a global provider of video management and perimeter intrusion detection solutions, announces that its Symphony video management software and Face Recognition video analytic are helping to protect Cosmo Music. Working with integrator Northern Alarm Protection (NAP) Ltd., Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada-based Cosmo Music selected Senstar after comprehensive research and testing to replace its 20-year-old analog video system.

“Senstar Symphony delivers an all-in-one solution for video management, video analytics, perimeter intrusion detection system integration, and alarm management for deployments of all sizes,” said Justin Schorn, Senstar’s Vice-President of Product Management. “We are glad that Symphony’s core features and ease-of-use, along with our Face Recognition analytic, were able to meet Cosmo Music’s needs.”

Senstar’s Face Recognition analytic adds an additional layer of security to any video surveillance deployment and is a powerful tool for retail loss prevention. At Cosmo Music, the analytic is used to identify and flag suspicious customers and provide real-time alerts if a flagged individual enters the store, with the goal to prevent theft.

“(During testing) one of our staff had a full beard one day and it was shaved off the next day and the system still picked him up,” said Rudi Brouwers, Vice-President and COO of Cosmo Music. “That’s what sold me on it.”
