gunshot detection

The SDS Indoor Gunshot Detection System utilizes dual-mode acoustic and infrared flash detection to detect gunshots fast, with accuracy and minimal false alerts.

Know in time to save lives with Shooter Detection Systems.

It is an unfortunate truth that workplace violence and school shooter incidents continue to rise. With all the solutions on the market – gunshot detection, panic buttons and apps, video analytics and weapons detection – how do you know which is the most effective solution?

Experts agree that reducing response time is what matters most in an active shooter incident. This can only be accomplished when those in direct danger and those responsible for responding to the threat get the information they need FAST – without relying on an operator in the middle analyzing the sound of gunshots – or an operator charged with discerning the shape of a weapon that is already brandished in the environment – before sending an alert. Other systems put these intermediary steps in place because the fact of the matter is, if they automated delivery of gun or shot detection, the false alert rates would be high enough to reduce user and police confidence in the efficacy of the solution.
