RONKONKOMA, N.Y., Oct. 10 -- Sentry Technology Corporation announced today that during the month of September orders were received for SentryVision SmartTrack traveling CCTV systems from 8 large customers in 6 countries on 3 continents. In total, September orders for all products and services were in excess of $1,800,000. The systems will be used to manage both theft and operations in stores and distribution centers. SmartTrack uses patented technology to transmit video images from two pan, tilt and zoom cameras traveling along an aluminum rail mounted on the ceiling. The camera carriage travels at speeds of up to 13 feet per second and provides unobstructed views of people, goods and processes. The HipTV wireless, handheld device allows the operator full command and control of the traveling camera system while walking a facility.

"In the past, SmartTrack sales were concentrated with a few customers and with one very large U.S. customer in particular," said Peter L. Murdoch, President and CEO of Sentry Technology Corporation. "We are pleased to see a growing base of orders for SmartTrack that, combined with increases in our library security sales, is creating a foundation on which to grow our business."
