Increase Safety With a Gunshot Detection System
Protect the Community and De-Escalate Weapons Violence in the Workplace or Education Campus
It is an unfortunate and stark truth that incidents of gun violence in our communities continue to climb. While it will take outreach and compassion on a national level to stem the root causes of these outbreaks, protecting employees and students today is crucial.
An advanced gunshot detection system furnishes you with an instant notification allowing you to implement security protocols, establish protective corridors, and involve first responders faster. When combined with AI-enabled video monitoring and mass notification networks, you can contain an incident quickly, saving lives and restoring calm.

ESCALATING THREAT LEVELS
While the majority of gun owners do not represent a threat, there are concerning numbers that should make law enforcement and security administrators take notice. As of July 2021, the Gun Violence Archive statistics show mass shootings increased by 21% nationwide and an incredible 65% across Texas.
It is clear that you need to add better tools to your arsenal in order to serve and protect effectively. As a facility safety administrator, you understand that you can never reduce potential threats to zero despite your best efforts at managing access control or using predictive action technology. Having the means to identify an active incident along with a well-vetted and practices response plan saves lives.
HEARING IS BELIEVING
At the heart of any reliable prevention are its accuracy and ability to provide detailed information. A professionally designed and installed system has been shown in independent testing to reach levels of 95% plus. A gunshot detection system uses an array of acoustic sensors distributed around your campus. Notifications are sent to a central station monitoring center where administrators confirm the status and initiate prompt action.
Once the report of a weapon is sensed, the network of microphones calculates the difference in the sound between them to provide a pinpoint location. The system is tuned to filter out noises that the human ear confuses with gunfire, such as slamming books, car backfires, and firecrackers, minimizing false alarms.
