Sensei has assembled a world-class team of experts in each of the disciplines required to successfully select, deploy and maintain the right technologies, products and vendors.

NERC-CIP MANDATED THREAT ASSESSMENTS
The first step is to survey the site(s) in question. Surveys are performed in two stages; First, site locations are reviewed using satellite imagery for terrain, surroundings and threats or other characteristics local to the environment including local crime statistics and demographics. Based on these findings a preliminary design and sensor package is selected.

Next, a federal government-certified survey team travels to the site to verify and refine the preliminary design as well as identify all off-property areas that potential adversaries could use to launch an attack.

Survey data are compiled into a report from which a series of options are presented to the customer, including the selection of deterrence technologies such as two-way audio and directed high-intensity spotlights, as well as a variety of intrusion detection sensor packages responsive to varying threat levels, environment and criticality.

SOLUTION DESIGN
Sensor packages are assembled from a wide variety of intrusion detection technologies that have been pre-qualified by Sensei to be complementary and compatible to integration with security management and central station automation systems, including PIR, Thermal, Acoustic/Seismic, ground radar and video analytics.

Successful and reliable detection begins with the selection of appropriate and complementary sensor technologies deployed in a layered design.

Selecting the correct combination of sensors for the site is critical to success, and Sensei’s expert team will guide you every step of the way with fact-based design recommendations and technology performance reviews.
