Major Automobile Manufacturing Plant
SDS’ automobile manufacturer customer chose the Guardian System to protect high threat areas in their massive 8M square foot plant that equals the size of almost 170 football fields under one roof. The customer’s concern was that the loud banging, sparks and flashes inherent in metal manufacturing would trigger false alerts. After attending a live fire demonstration and thoroughly reviewing the Guardian technology, the customer selected Guardian for its zero-false alert history, sub 1 second alerting and integration capabilities.
The local Certified Guardian Integrator worked with the customer to integrate alerts with the company leadership team emails and text messages. The customer coordinated IT, Safety, Human Resources, Production, Leadership and local police through a series of meetings to determine alerts, responses, and best actions. The customer is using the email integration to trigger their assembly line system to produce audible voice messages throughout the plant in nine (9) different languages as well as an audible siren that is unique to an active shooter event. Finally, they placed a client system in the local Police Department so first responders will receive automated alerts and see the location and progress of an active shooter to be able to respond immediately and to the right location of this massive facility.
