With more than two-thirds of active shooter incidents taking place at businesses and schools, it’s time to make addressing these threats a security priority. At Wain Security, we now offer the Guardian Indoor Active Shooter Detection System so that your campus or place of business can do that at a low monthly cost. This is an advanced shooter detection and alerting technology, and it’s one of the most innovative you’ll find anywhere.
Here are some of the problems our active shooter detection system solves.
How to Know Where the Shooter Is
Many active shooter scenarios turn tragic when people are “in the wrong place at the wrong time.” Hopefully, being aware of the shooter’s location in a building can reduce the risk of an incident becoming a tragedy. It works by using wall-mountable sensors that can be placed in every room of the building. The infrared sensors find the flash of light emitting from a firearm the moment a shot is fired in the building. The same sensor contains highly sensitive microphones that hear the sound of a shot to pinpoint shooter location. These two technologies work together to communicate to your system, which communicates to you. You’ll know where the shooter is, and can act accordingly.
What to Do When Seconds Count
When there’s a shooter in the building, innocent occupants may feel helpless. How do you know where to go, what to do, or how to help the people you’re supposed to protect? While it can’t make the decision for you, an active shooter detection system can make the decision clearer so you can act more quickly.
Many active shooter scenarios turn tragic when people are “in the wrong place at the wrong time.” Hopefully, being aware of the shooter’s location in a building can reduce the risk of an incident becoming a tragedy.
It does this by presenting an easy-to-read map interface, which employees can access by computer to see the shooter’s location within inches – and, text alert capability that tells recipients what room the shots are being fired in. As for customers, students and others, they can get updates via the integration with your mass communication system. Or, those who are designated to lead in these scenarios can provide instructions based on what they’re seeing.
How to Get Help to Your Location
The technology of an active shooter detection system can notify you of the shooter’s location – but what about getting help to the scene? The system does that as well. When it detects the first shot, it’s already triggering an immediate emergency call to the monitoring center. And with Wain Security as your monitoring provider, you can be assured that police will be on their way promptly. The system can also integrate with your security, video surveillance and access control to further assist with managing and monitoring the threat.
