Network Manager Interface Software Development Kit (SDK)
Senstar perimeter intrusion detection sensors are designed for easy integration with a wide variety of security systems, ranging from simple alarm panels to full-featured video management systems (VMS) and security management systems (SMS/PSIM).
For VMS, SMS and PSIM software-based integrations, Senstar provides a comprehensive, field-proven Application Programming Interface (API) along with a Software Development Kit (SDK). The SDK is available free of charge to developers and includes comprehensive documentation, sample code, and simulation software.
Benefits of API-based Integration
The API provided by Senstar’s Network Manager software provides the alarm display head-end or security management system with access to a wealth of sensor data, including:
- Intrusion alarm/zone status (including linear location or GPS location data, when supported by sensor)
- Alarm classification (FiberPatrol fiber optic sensor)
- Tamper status
- Communications status
- Diagnostic alarm status
- Dry contact input status
- Control of relay outputs
- Sensor self-test initiation
- Sensor audio (FlexZone fence sensor)
- Light intensity levels (Senstar LM100 perimeter intrusion detection and deterrence system)
For system integrators, an API-based integration enables the deployment of systems with improved situational awareness capabilities. In addition to receiving alarms, the security management software can obtain the current state of a sensor or I/O point as well as detailed alarm information.
