New from Senstar is the LM100, described by the Canadian firm as intelligent perimeter lighting and sensing, combining two security functions in one product. LM100 detects and illuminates intruder attempts at the fence line while alerting a security management system (SMS).
Product Manager Todd Brisebois said: “The Senstar LM100’s specially-engineered LED lighting was specifically designed for perimeter security applications and optimized for use with CCTV camera systems. With its ability to sense vibrations caused by attempts to cut, climb or break through the fence, the LM100 is a highly effective tool for protecting property and assets from theft and vandalism.”
Consisting of luminaires mounted along the fence, the LM100 uses a wireless self-healing mesh communication network to relay intrusion information enabling the system to operate in a coordinated fashion. When networked, the product reports intrusion attempt locations to the site’s SMS to enable a directed response.
The LM100 provides configurable, localised, uniform lighting allowing cameras to operate with a higher dynamic range, and ensuring objects and people are illuminated while avoiding the generation of dark silhouettes in front of bright backgrounds. Its Color Rendering Index (CRI) of 70+ brings out critical details that enhance video analytics. Senstar adds that the LM100 is suitable for sites of all sizes as a standalone or complimentary perimeter security system.
Meanwhile Senstar is bringing Aimetis under the Senstar brand. Senstar acquired Aimetis, the video management systems (VMS) and analytics software firm, in April 2016. Since that time the two companies have worked in parallel to continue to provide PIDS and VMS, and over the coming months, Senstar and Aimetis will become one company.
Senstar President Brian Rich said: “Bringing together the PIDS expertise of Senstar with the VMS and analytics knowledge of Aimetis enables us to offer an unrivaled range of innovative security solutions and world-class support. Throughout the transition period we are committed to ensuring as little disruption as possible to our business. Our customers and partners can expect the same accessible, responsive and flexible sales and support they have always relied on, and to be well-informed regarding any changes that may affect them.”
Senstar adds that the combination of PIDS and VMS addresses a growing trend in the security industry to reduce complexity by enabling customers and partners to source security solutions from a single provider. Senstar is integrating its Network Manager alarm reporting and Symphony VMS (formerly Aimetis).
