Senstar’s security management portfolio provide organizations with cost-effective, flexible options when deploying perimeter intrusion detection and access control systems. From basic I/O modules and embedded controllers to full-featured SMS/VMS, Senstar has the solution.

Benefits of using a Security Management System (SMS)

A Security Management System (SMS) enables the efficient monitoring of perimeter and other physical security sensors. Operators can monitor the overall status of their site, and are immediately notified of any intrusion attempts, fire system activation, or other changes to the physical environment that warrant attention. A well-designed, well-implemented SMS enables reliable, fault-tolerant communication over numerous network types, typologies, and devices. Other benefits include detailed sensor troubleshooting and remote access for sensor configuration and calibration. Modern SMS display security status information in a graphical format, enabling operators to quickly see what is going on where.

Senstar Rugged Controller

Remote Management with Local Fallback

The Senstar Rugged Controller is a ruggedized, embedded controller that enables remote management of Senstar security sensors and provides local control of security functions. Ideal for remote, unmanned sites, it provides a platform on which security, communications, and backup systems can be automated if network connectivity is lost. On-site technicians can also use the controller as an access point when performing maintenance or troubleshooting.

UltraLink Input / Output Modules

Programmable Input/Output Modules for Sensor Integration

UltraLink input/output (I/O) modules enable Senstar perimeter intrusion detection sensors to be integrated with virtually any security system, including intrusion panels or systems where an API-based integration is not required. UltraLink I/O modules provide sets of configurable relay outputs and dry-contact inputs. They can be also used to integrate third-party devices deployed alongside Senstar devices. In this scenario, alarms from Senstar and third-party sensor data is communicated to a Senstar video or security management system (VMS/SMS) via Senstar’s Network Manager software.

Security Management FAQs

What is a Security Management System?

A Security Management System (SMS) is a software application that monitors the status of a site’s security devices and alerts personnel of potential unauthorized entry to the secured area. For ease of use, the location of an alarm is typically displayed on a graphical map. The SMS may also be integrated with video management, access control, and fire detection functions.
