HSI Sensing, an Oklahoma-based manufacturer of custom reed switch and sensor technology, announced at ISC WEST 2018 that its high-security sensors product line – Sentinel – now includes four new UL 634 certified sensors. HSI launched its Sentinel sensors line in 2017 as an enhanced technology for high-security intrusion detection.
“We are excited to offer an expanded line of Sentinel products to our customers,” said Ryan Posey, CEO of HSI Sensing. “Sentinel is tried and true as a leader in high-security uses, but we pride ourselves on constant innovation to meet our clients’ ever-changing needs. We look forward to continuing to grow this line and providing exceptional solutions and service to clients.”
Two of the new models - recessed & retro – carry the UL 634 Level 2 High Security certification
HSI’s Sentinel sensors utilise Solid State technology and are designed with a wide range of anti-tamper features that allow them to resist physical, electrical and magnetic tampering. Sentinel is intended to be a door contact sensor and entry-point alarm where failure is not an option, like at government facilities, prisons, banks, weapon sites and other high-security areas.
The Sentinel product line received a substantial expansion for ISC West 2018 with the addition of the four new UL 634 certified products. Two of the new models - recessed & retro – also carry the UL 634 Level 2 High Security certification. The new products build upon the market-leading technology HSI introduced in 2017 with the original Sentinel surface mount.
Sensors for residential and commercial security
The recessed version is a concealed mount for use inside door frames, and the retro version is compliant with existing models on the market to facilitate the ease of replacing outdated technology with the newest innovations. The other two new sensors are SRC+ products and are door and window contacts for the high-end residential and commercial markets – they feature much greater resistance than standard market products currently available.
The expanded Sentinel high security sensors line is certified and available for delivery now. HSI is also working on several other developments, which will be released in the coming months.
