The Senstar LM100 hybrid perimeter intrusion detection and intelligent lighting system, a competitor in the 2018 ‘ASTORS’ Awards Program, has been selected to protect the 28,000 ft (5.3 mi) perimeter of a $1.5 billion brewery being constructed by a Fortune 500 international beverage company.
A 2-in-1 product, the Senstar LM100 acts as a powerful deterrent against intruders, detecting and illuminating them at the fence line while alerting a Security Management System (SMS).

How it Works
Optimized for use with surveillance camera systems, the Senstar LM100 provides intelligent lighting along the fence line.
Uniform coverage lets cameras operate with a higher dynamic range, ensuring objects and people are illuminated while avoiding the generation of dark silhouettes in front of bright backgrounds.
In addition, the luminaires use ultra-efficient LED technology that reduces electricity consumption by as much as 98% (when compared to non-LED security lighting).
Each LM100 luminaire includes built-in accelerometer technology that detects any attempt to cut, climb or lift the fence fabric.
Luminaires communicate with each other over a wireless self-healing mesh network to relay information to the local security system (such as sirens and cameras) and/or to a networked SMS.
The system incorporates advanced environmental compensation algorithms that enable it to distinguish between area-wide disturbances caused by high winds and real (localized) intrusion attempts.
A hybrid perimeter intrusion detection and intelligent lighting system means only one system to install, maintain and manage, which saves time, reduces complexity, and lowers costs.
It also means more control over operation, enabling the lighting to react to the site’s current security status.
For example, when an intrusion attempt is detected, the system can increase the brightness or strobe the luminaires in the affected area.
Not only will intruders know they are detected (and presumably be deterred), the bright or strobing lights will often cause them to look up, directly into one of the site’s surveillance cameras.
LM100 Features and Benefits Include:
- Specially-engineered lighting specifically designed for perimeter security applications
– power-efficient LED technology (95% less power used than typical lighting systems)
– high color rendering index (CRI) maximizes surveillance camera performance
– configurable timing and alarm control
– uniform illumination
– minimal light pollution
- Actively senses vibrations of the fence caused by intrusion attempts
- Alerts security management system if intrusion attempts detected
- Wireless gate sensor option
By combining lighting, sensing and communication technology, the Senstar LM100 system can be used to alert security systems of impending threats while mitigating false environmental triggers on a system level.
This project, consisting of over 1,300 LM100 luminaires, which will be coupled with layers of video analytics and surveillance cameras, will be the second partnership between Senstar, the beverage company, A&E firm Benham, and installer EON Solution SA de CV.
This group previously collaborated on the expansion of a brewery site where Senstar’s FiberPatrol fence-mounted fiber optic intrusion detection system was installed to protect a 5,000 ft (0.95 mi) section of new perimeter fence.

“There was not a one-size fits all for the beverage company’s two most recent construction projects,” explained Senstar’s Executive Director of Business Development Nancy Marshall.
“But with Senstar’s broad portfolio of perimeter intrusion detection products, we were able to offer solutions that met the different requirements of the distinct sites.”
Launched in Fall 2017, the Senstar LM100 provides fence vibration detection as well as configurable, localized, uniform lighting allowing cameras to operate with a higher dynamic range, ensuring objects and people are illuminated while avoiding the generation of dark silhouettes in front of bright backgrounds.
Combining sensing and lighting technologies allows the lighting to be controlled by its sensing which further increases its deterrence capability.
With the LM100’s low voltage design, installation costs are kept low as expensive electrical infrastructure or expensive labor are not required, and the need for additional permits, which could be time consuming and costly, is eliminated.
The Senstar LM100 is easy to install and maintain, environmentally-friendly, and suitable for sites of all sizes as a standalone or complimentary perimeter security system, seamlessly integrating with video management and analytics systems, PSIM and security management systems.
Senstar has sold a number of LM100 systems to small sites including VIP residences, electrical substations, marinas and marijuana production facilities.
“The Senstar LM100 is the first perimeter intrusion detection product of its kind to combine two key security features in one cutting-edge product – deterrence (lighting) and detection (vibration-sensing) – illuminating intruders at the fence line and alerting the site’s security management system of any attempt to cut, climb or otherwise breakthrough the fence fabric,” added Senstar Product Manager Todd Brisebois.
“We are honored the beverage company has chosen the Senstar LM100 to safeguard its people and property and are confident the system will provide the desired level of security for the site.”
