As more and more businesses move to the region, their owners can rely on Herring to provide the latest advancements in commercial security.
The Guardian Indoor Active Shot Detection System (SDS) instantaneously detects gunshots using acoustic gunshot identification software and combines this cutting-edge software with infrared gunfire flash detection. The result is a shooter detection system offering the best and most accurate information on the market. According to SDS, the Guardian’s acoustic and infrared detection provides the highest rate of detection with zero false alerts.

The Benefits of Shot Detection Systems
Active shooter incidents are on the rise. In response, many business owners are equipping themselves with the latest technology and tools to safeguard their employees, customers, and themselves.
SDS applies a sensor system as part of their software. These devices instantly recognize gunshot and transfer the information to security personnel and 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.
The Guardian sensor authenticates the current environment. 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.
The gunshot detection system can be used in buildings of any size. Regardless of square footage or number of floors, SDS covers a wide area, and the technology will register and trigger an alert. The installation of the system isn’t intrusive. There isn’t the need for additional on-site equipment required to activate the system or optimize its functionality. In fact, SDS has 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.

SDS notes that the Guardian Indoor Active Shot Detection System is the only stand-alone, dual-authentication, smart sensor for indoor active shooter events. With Guardian sensors installed throughout school, corporate, government and commercial buildings, critical information is immediately relayed to building occupants as well as emergency personnel outside. By removing the ‘human factor,’ nothing is left to interpretation, and life-threatening delays can be avoided.
