The campaign launches at CES 2024 and will give the tools to individuals to #TakeAction to promote a safer environment with gunshot detection
Shooter Detection Systems (SDS), an Alarm.com (NASDAQ: ALRM) company and provider of the world’s leading gunshot detection solutions, will introduce a campaign at CES 2024 to empower individuals to make their schools, workplaces, and communities safer by employing lifesaving gunshot detection technology.
In an active shooter situation, gunshot detection is highly effective at mitigating injury and loss of life but is often overlooked by federal funding sources that traditionally support a wide range of preventative gun violence measures. The #TakeAction initiative aims to educate individuals about gunshot detection’s crucial role in maintaining safe and secure spaces, as well as provide specific tools for consumers to advocate for gunshot detection to their school, government, and workplace leaders.
“An average of one death can occur every 10 seconds during an active shooter event. So when a shooting starts, reducing the time it takes for authorities to get to the shooter is the most vital dimension,” said Stephen Carney, President, Shooter Detection Systems. “With gunshot detection technology, responders can know immediately that a gun has been fired and in what area of the building the shot occurred.”*
The campaign is also designed to provide people with the resources to personally lobby their place of business or child’s school to deploy gunshot detection technology to create a safer environment that can quickly alert law enforcement in the event of an active shooter incident.
SDS gunshot technology enables the communication of critical incident details within 10 seconds to 911 to alert law enforcement as well as to individuals at the scene, using ResponderLink, a software-embedded integration with SDS sister company Noonlight. SDS software alerts are intercepted by trained safety agents at Noonlight who provide a live URL dashboard of incident information to the 911 operator, including the push of continuous incident information such as where the latest shots were fired.
By combining purpose-built acoustic and infrared sensors with proprietary detection algorithms, SDS’ Active Shooter Intelligence accurately detects, verifies, and validates a gunshot with 99.9% accuracy, and virtually zero false alarms.
SDS will be participating in a pair of media events at CES. The first event is CES Unveiled, which will be held on Sunday, January 7th from 5 to 8:30 p.m. at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. The second event is Pepcom, which will take place on Monday, January 8th from 7 to 10:30 p.m. at The Mirage.
