AIM Marine, a boat and motor sales and repair shop near Ottawa, the capital of Canada, suffered two thefts from the storage yard. The owner David Scott looked to add a layer of security to his 235m (771 ft) perimeter fence.
“My initial impression was that these systems were cost-prohibitive for a business of my size,” Scott said.
But after doing some research he learned that the Canadian perimeter intrusion detection systems and video management software company Senstar has options for small sites, including the Senstar LM100, which combines two lighting and perimeter intrusion detection.
Senstar Product Manager Todd Brisebois said: “The Senstar LM100 luminaires provides high quality, direct illumination along the fence line – deterring intruders and providing targeted illumination for video surveillance systems, all while monitoring the perimeter to detect any attempt to cut, climb or lift the fence fabric. Fully programmable, the luminaires provide general security lighting and can inform intruders that you know where they are by flashing the light. The Senstar LM100 also minimizes light pollution and is energy efficient.”
After the thefts, Aim Marine was subjected to high repair costs and insurance deductible increases. With the LM100 now on the fence, no repairs are needed and insurance deductibles have been cut in half. The system has practically paid for itself.
Since the Senstar LM100 was installed in spring 2018, there have been no attempted thefts at Aim Marine, and David Scott is sure that having the LM100 lighting his fence has been key in deterring intruders. “Absolutely the LM100’s got something to do with it,” he said.
