by Brianna Crandall — August 23, 2017 — Global diversified technology provider Johnson Controls recently announced that its American Dynamics victor Video Management Software now integrates with the Guardian Indoor Active Shooter Detection System from Shooter Detection Systems, providing users with an automated solution to react in real time to shots fired in a facility.
By reducing the margin of human error, the solution helps to eliminate costly false alerts while enhancing the overall security of any school, business or public venue building, say the companies, and users gain immediate, automated insights the second a shot is fired, providing crucial situational awareness when every second counts.
Active shooter incidents have been recognized by the nation’s top 500 enterprise security executives surveyed as a top security threat facing their enterprise. Based on military gunshot detection technology and SAFETY Act Certified by the Department of Homeland Security, the Guardian Indoor Active Shooter Detection System combines an acoustic gunshot identification software with infrared gunfire flash detection to quickly identify gunshot incidents.
When combined with the powerful victor Video Management Software monitoring features, the system provides the ability for instant shot location information, lock-down procedures, and live and recorded video from cameras in the incident-related areas. The integration provides immediate notification to first responders through victor’s event action and integration notification platform, and simultaneously alerts designated monitoring facilities around the globe.
In addition to this integration through the Tyco Security Products Connected Partner Program, these capabilities are also available through the Connected Partner integration of the Guardian Indoor Active Shooter Detection System and the C•CURE 9000 security and event management system from Software House.
