High Performance Lighting

  • 53 lux per luminaire (163 lumens) with 50,000 hour minimum life expectancy
  • Uniform, full-spectrum lighting enhances camera assessment capabilities
  • Instant-on or strobe lighting at intrusion attempt location can deter potential intruders

Intrusion Detection

  • Built-in accelerometer detects attempts to cut, climb or lift the fence fabric
  • Reports intrusion attempt location to the site’s security system
  • Can activate other deterrent systems like intercoms or other security lights

Environmentally Friendly

  • Directed illumination and warm-white color option minimizes light pollution
  • Ultra-low power LEDs reduce power consumption by up 95%
  • International Dark Sky Association (IDA) approved

How It Works

Optimized for use with surveillance camera systems, the Senstar LM100 provides localized, uniform, configurable lighting along the fence line. Uniform coverage lets cameras operate with a higher dynamic range, ensuring objects and people are illuminated while avoiding the generation of dark silhouettes in front of bright backgrounds. Each LM100 luminaire also includes built-in accelerometer technology to detect any attempt to cut, climb or lift the fence fabric. Luminaires communicate with each other over a wireless self-healing mesh network to relay information to the local security system (such as sirens and cameras) and/or to a networked SMS.

Senstar LM100 Features

Actively Deter Intrusions

Early detection at the perimeter means the Senstar LM100 can trigger warnings and alarms, cue up camera systems, and even provide an instant, visible deterrence like enabling or strobing the fence lights within the immediate area—BEFORE the intruder enters the protected area.

Lower Electricity and Maintenance Costs

When compared to traditional security lighting technologies, the Senstar LM100 can reduce electrical consumption costs by as much as 95%. In addition, the LEDs used in the luminaires have a 50,000 hour minimum life expectancy and are designed for outdoor use in all environments.

Minimize Light Pollution

Targeted illumination along the fence line and warm-light option minimizes light pollution, enabling the Senstar LM100 to be used near light-sensitive areas, including airports, residential housing, and nature preserves. International Dark-Sky Association (IDA) approved, the Senstar LM100 is an ideal choice in regions that mandate reductions in light glare, trespassing, and pollution from outdoor fixtures.

Networking and Integration

With programmable I/O ports and support for Ethernet, RS-422 and fiber optic communication cards, the Senstar LM100 can work with virtually any security system.

Works With Any Fence

The Senstar LM100 is easy to install. The luminaires use worm gear clamps to attach to existing fence posts while built-in mounting flanges enable installation on walls and other structures. The luminaires can be installed at different heights so as to not interfere with existing outrigging on the fence. Inter-luminaire communication is handled via an encrypted self-healing mesh network, eliminating the need to run communications wiring along the fence line.

Gate Protection

The Senstar LM100 luminaires can be installed on swinging gates to provide detection, and the gate area itself can be configured as an independent detection zone. Gate latches can be monitored via the Senstar LM100’s programmable I/O ports. Sliding gates are typically protected with Senstar’s Wireless Gate Sensor or UltraWave microwave sensor.

Common Platform

The Senstar LM100 uses the same configuration and integration software as other Senstar products, reducing training requirements while increasing operational efficiencies. The device is configured and calibrated with easy-to-use Windows®-based software over a USB or network connection. Alarms, control, and status information is managed by the Network Manager software, which provides a common unified interface for Senstar’s video and security management software as well as other industry-leading third-party systems.

Deployment Diagram

The Senstar LM100 typically communicates with the security system via an Ethernet, RS-422 or fiber optic interface. The communications network may be shared with other Senstar sensors to reduce infrastructure requirements. Integrations using the LM100’s programmable I/O ports are also supported.
