This advanced Automatic Gunshot Detection, Location & Notification technology along with the ability for integrated Auto Lockdown capability has become much more sophisticated as the technology catches up with the concept. Essentially the audio unique signature of the gun shot activity is captured and put through a series of digital algorithms to verify that type of activity being present. With the use of GPS technology and several sensors, the location can be extremely accurate for location of all activity. This technology is available for large exterior space such as city-wide applications and now available for interior, room to room based active shooter interior gunshot and location applications as well. Several corresponding technologies are frequently additionally utilized to allow for the immediate notification of event as well as verification and surveillance of area to capture all potential activity to allow responders the most detailed information for the best case scenario to identify and remain safe upon investigation of gunshot activity.

For interior applications we are proud to offer the latest technology from Shooter Detection Systems – The Guardian System that incorporates the unique audio signature technology as well as infrared capture of the muzzle flash to accurately determine and pinpoint the location and verification of actual gunshot activity.
