- Reliable, fault-tolerant communication over a variety of network types, topologies, and devices
- Remote access for sensor configuration, calibration and troubleshooting
- Gateway software provides common IP interface
Flexible Management and Integration Options
Senstar sensors can communicate over a range of physical media, including Ethernet, single and multi-mode fiber, and RS-422 networks, as well as hardwired I/O points. When loop topologies are used, sensors are polled from both ends and ensuring continued communications after a cable cut or device failure.
The Network Manager software communicates directly with Senstar sensors and provides a common, unified IP interface for use by security, video, and physical security information management systems (SMS/VMS/PSIM).
Senstar includes a set of software tools that enable system maintainers to configure, calibrate, and monitor networked sensors from a centralized location. Each tool communicates with the Network Manager over TCP/IP and can run on separate PCs – a real time-saver when access to the physical devices is restricted or inconvenient.
Senstar offers several Windows® -based alarm display options, each one optimized for different customer requirements. Integrations with third-party systems are also available:
Senstar provides an SDK to enable third-party security providers to communicate with the Network Manager and integrate Senstar sensors into their systems via a mature, field-proven API. The SDK includes documentation, sample code, and simulator software.
Senstar sensors can be integrated through a variety of methods, from to simple I/O connections to full software integrations. Contact your Senstar representative for integration options specific to your site.
