Shooter Detection Systems Exhibition at ISC West 2019 Showcases New Technical Advances, Safety Testing and Performance Certifications
SDS continues to lead the gunshot detection market in consumer confidence, industry partnerships, and respected third-party validations for their gunshot detection solutions
Shooter Detection Systems (SDS) will return for the 5th year in a row to exhibit at the International Security Conference and Exposition (ISC West) at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas April 10-12, 2019. SDS will highlight their gunshot detection solutions at the show, including certified integrations with Genetec, Everbridge, Avigilon, C-CURE 9000, Honeywell, Mutualink and other partner solutions. SDS will also unveil new safety testing and performance certifications, adding to the vast list of third-party validations of their gunshot detection products.
“2018 was the year that the value of indoor gunshot detection was widely realized,” said Christian Connors, SDS Chief Executive Officer. “The system has surpassed 50 million hours without experiencing a false alert. The adoption in the U.S. and overseas has significantly expanded, and we have enhanced the software security features of the system considerably in order to address the stringent requirements of our customers.”
Corporate and Public Safety professionals still list Active Shooter as the “top threat” facing their enterprise, according to a recent survey by Everbridge, an SDS partner. The large majority of SDS customers continue to be household name Fortune 500 corporations who recognize the active shooter threat as one that can no longer be ignored, according to a recent report in the Wall Street Journal and on Fox Business News in February 2019.
“When you’re trusting gunshot detection alerts to automate security actions, to alert tens of thousands of employees, to dispatch SWAT teams – it has to be right, every time,” said Richard Onofrio, SDS Vice President of Hardware Engineering. “Our customers and law enforcement agencies demand the highest levels of accuracy and performance achievable in a gunshot detection system. We are relentless in our pursuit to push past the limits of what some might consider acceptable performance, consistently driving our development far beyond conventional standards.”
SDS has systems and mutually supported security partner integrations operating in Schools & Universities, Airports, Manufacturing, Utilities, Retail, Property Management, Sports & Entertainment facilities, Museums, Movie Theaters, Federal and State Government Agencies, and Fortune 500 Corporations. SDS’ certified security integration solutions harness the power of gunshot detection alerts by automating security actions for critical situational awareness in a shooting incident. “We have significantly invested into deeper technical and business development partnerships with the top names in security so that together we can deliver tangible, complete solutions that go well beyond the capability of our sensors. With our partners we bring advanced, full-scale systems to the market that will have a lifesaving impact on the outcome of active shooter events, which resonates with our mutual customers,” said Connors.
Integrations with Video Management Systems, Mass Notification, Critical Emergency Management Systems, Access Control, and more will be shown during product demonstrations that will run throughout the ISC West show at Booth #3038 and in partner booths.
