Product Information

The Guardian Indoor Active Shooter Detection System is a device system that utilizes advanced acoustic detection software combined with infrared sensors to immediately and accurately detect gunshots while filtering out false alerts. The sensor instantly transmits shot location information including the building address and the location within the building where shots were fired, details that are critical for both the building occupants at risk and first responders to the scene. The technology integration between Guardian and the Singlewire mass notification solution automates the emergency communications process further, expanding the shot notification pathway to reach more people at once and empowering building occupants to make rapid, informed decisions while helping first responders directly target the active shooter threat.

Upon detecting a shot, the Guardian System triggers InformaCast to send critical shot detection notifications based on preconfigured parameters. End users can configure the text and audio messages that get sent out from InformaCast when a gunshot is detected. InformaCast notifications can be broadcast through IP speakers and IP phones, display emergency information on digital signage, trigger desktop alerts, and send emergency communications to mobile phones and email. System administrators can also determine what groups receive messages when a gunshot is detected. For example, users can configure alerts to only be sent to select security team members, or messages can be broadcast to an entire organization.
