Through exhaustive testing of how antennas work next to walls, a technology that uses radio transmissions to identify the unique characteristics of concrete and steel within a building, differentiating between inside and outside walls as well as floors in multi-level facilities was perfected. The highly developed technologies resulting from those tests are now the bedrock of Senstar-Stellar Life Safety products. <o:p></o:p></SPAN></P> <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-ALIGN: justify"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt">&nbsp;</SPAN></SPAN><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt">&nbsp;<o:p></o:p></SPAN></P> <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-ALIGN: justify"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt"><STRONG>Our Systems<o:p></o:p></STRONG></SPAN></P> <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-ALIGN: justify"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt">&nbsp;<o:p></o:p></SPAN></P><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt"> <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt">Our two systems, Flare and Flash, are designed to operate in a concrete and metal environment.<SPAN style="mso-spacerun: yes">&nbsp; </SPAN>The systems rely solely on RF technology and thus, signals are never interrupted by building materials, smoke, heavy clothing or human interference. The systems operate on a licensed frequency in the Public Safety band (420 – 470 MHz) so they are protected from interference from other radio signals – now and in the future. <o:p></o:p></SPAN></P></SPAN>

Knowing exactly where the incident occurs can save the response team valuable seconds or even minutes.<SPAN style="mso-spacerun: yes">&nbsp; </SPAN>These seconds or minutes are often the difference between life and death."</SPAN>


Apart From The Rest...

Flare can also differentiate indoor-to-outdoor and floor-to-floor alarm locations with unparalleled precision. <o:p></o:p></SPAN></P> <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt">&nbsp;<o:p></o:p></SPAN></P> <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt">Transmitters, Sensors, Hubs, Interface Units and a Control Computer are the main elements of a Flare system.<SPAN style="mso-spacerun: yes">&nbsp; </SPAN>Transmitters are belt worn and, when activated, send alarm signals to multiple Sensors.<SPAN style="mso-spacerun: yes">&nbsp; </SPAN>The Sensors process the alarm signals and relay the information through the Hubs and Interface Units, to the Control Computer.<SPAN style="mso-spacerun: yes">&nbsp; </SPAN>The control computer then compares the signals to a table of signals created during the commissioning phase.<SPAN style="mso-spacerun: yes">&nbsp; </SPAN>The system identifies the best match and displays the information on the operator's console.<SPAN style="mso-spacerun: yes">&nbsp; </SPAN>This patented system is unmatched in location accuracy, system performance and system redundancy.<o:p></o:p></SPAN></P> <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"></SPAN><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial">&nbsp;<o:p></o:p></SPAN></P> <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-ALIGN: justify"></SPAN></P>

Committment to Corrections

<SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt"> <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt">Senstar-Stellar Life Safety's Flash system has become the standard for Canadian federal correctional institutions. Flash is a small, affordable system that, when activated, transmits an instantaneous signal that identifies the transmission device's unique ID number, the name of the device user, or the facility location to which the device is assigned. Flash is used in 46 federal corrections facilities in Canada.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p></SPAN></P> <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt">&nbsp;<o:p></o:p></SPAN></P> <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt">Like Flare, Flash's alarm signals are received by multiple Sensors; providing infallible system redundancy.<SPAN style="mso-spacerun: yes">&nbsp; </SPAN>The system consists of all of the same components as Flare, thus can easily be upgrade in all, or sections, of the facility if alarm location information is needed.<o:p></o:p></SPAN></P> <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt">&nbsp;<o:p></o:p></SPAN></P> <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt">Most recently Flash has been accepted in a thirteenth Michigan State corrections facility.<SPAN style="mso-spacerun: yes">&nbsp; </SPAN>Acceptance included location identification to within 12.5 feet with a 96% accuracy rate.<SPAN style="mso-spacerun: yes">&nbsp; </SPAN>Floor-to-floor and indoors-to-outdoors accuracy was without fail.<o:p></o:p></SPAN></P> <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-ALIGN: justify"></SPAN><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt"><o:p></o:p></SPAN>&nbsp;</P>

Looking Forward

<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><I><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt">Senstar-Stellar Life Safety will continue to be a technology leader in location resolution and simultaneous indoor/outdoor use.<SPAN style="mso-spacerun: yes">&nbsp; </SPAN>In the future, much focus will be on making systems that are easier to install and cheaper to maintain.<SPAN style="mso-spacerun: yes">&nbsp; </SPAN>Technology will be the driver in obtaining these goals, with remote network connectivity playing a key role.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p></SPAN></I></P>
