Not even “windpocalypse” can rattle Senstar products

News story examples of the damage Windpocalypse caused in Ottawa and other parts of Ontario.

Ottawa, Canada. April 4-5, 2018.

It was a dark and stormy night.

For over 12 hours, the winds roared up to 91 km per hour
(56 mi per hour).

The power went out, trees went down and roofs went flying… but not a single nuisance alarm was generated from either the FlexZone or Senstar LM100 fence-mounted intrusion detection systems affixed to the perimeter fence of a critical infrastructure site! 

All fence-mounted perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS) are susceptible to weather-related nuisance alarms. High Nuisance Alarm Rates (NAR) can be incredibly frustrating for property owners. At high security sites, nuisance alarms can become a real danger if security personnel become complacent and assume real alarms are false.  

Senstar’s environmental discrimination technology allows our products to differentiate between point disturbances caused by real intrusions and spatially distributed
environmental disturbances like wind and rain. This keeps NAR low, security personnel on alert, and customers happy.

The only alarms received during Windpocalypse were generated by gate usage (as programmed to do) during business hours
