Relay the Right Information
When it comes to your shot detection system, ensuring your security efforts relay the right information at the right time will be extremely important. With Herring Technology’s shot detection system, you and your security partner will be immediately notified. A shot detection system will also be able to send mass notification alerts to both desktops and mobile devices.
Similarly, when integrated with security systems, these shot detection programs can enact surveillance cameras in that area, initiate lock-down procedures, provide info to first responders and relay any floor plan information or shot location data to personnel or building occupants.
Shot Detection Systems Save Lives
Shot detection systems utilize a sensor system as part of their software. These devices instantly recognize gunshots and transfer this information to the right security personnel as well as alert the building’s occupants. As a result, the proper steps can be taken to lock down the situation.
These sensors remove the “human factor” and any life-threatening opportunities needed to stay organized under extreme circumstances. This information can help first-responders as they arrive on the scene. With this in mind, integrating a shot detection system into your security system measures can work to save lives before any catastrophic events occur.
Track Gunshots in Real-Time
The Guardian sensor within your shot detection system will be able to authenticate the current environment when a gunshot is detected. In the event of multiple gunshots, the acoustic bang and infrared flash from the weapon going off is picked up immediately by the system. With each shot, tracking and reporting information is stored in real-time.
Alerts are directly sent to parties responsible for monitoring the situation through email, text message, or other forms of communication informing them of the coordinates where the shooting is taking place. These alerts are usable as forensic evidence because the system records audio snippets of the incident. Therefore, a shot detection system is a useful addition to the security system that can help prevent gunshot injuries from occurring.
Adaptable to Every Premise
When it comes to integrating a gunshot detection system into your building, it should be noted that these systems can be used in buildings of any size. Regardless of square footage or number of floors, Shot detection systems cover a wide area, and the technology has the ability to register and trigger an alert. The installation of these systems also isn’t intrusive. Without the need for additional on-site equipment required to activate the system or optimize its functionality, SDS have the ability to integrate with your current security system and video cameras. All updates and support are delivered directly to you or through a cloud-based system. Keeping this in mind, with the ease of use of these system integrations, it’s no wonder that so many companies are opting to incorporate shot detection systems into their overall security measures.
