The Detect360 Shot Detection System

In an active shooter situation, it’s not an exaggeration to say that every second counts. That’s why having access to accurate information within seconds is so critical. The Detect360 system combines leading gunshot detection with advanced notification technology to provide immediate notification as soon as a shot is fired. That means law enforcement, onsite security personnel and building occupants alike can all be alerted to shooter activity as quickly as possible.

Police and other first responders can:

  • Be alerted to gunshot(s) anywhere on the premises where sensors are located
  • Know where shots were fired and class of weapon used
  • Trigger building alarms, emergency notifications and evacuation instructions
  • Remotely view/monitor the situation through streaming audio and video
  • Receive a clear and concise automated 911 call, even before human callers are able to safely call
  • Client software allows emergency responders access to detailed situational information

Detect360 utilizes acoustic sensors consisting of multiple microphones, processing electronics and algorithms to detect gunshots. The system determines the sensor closest to the gunshot and displays the location within a map-based GUI. It can also display audio and video of the incident. In the event of a shooting, the customer can configure the system to automatically send 911 calls and SMS messages. This can prompt police and other first responders to respond even before the first eyewitness calls are made.

Law enforcement and other first responders can have access to sensor information as it develops at the scene through the Detect360 client software.

The system is designed to support multiple integration options, including:

• Video feeds from existing CCTV and intrusion systems
• Mass Notification Systems
• Access Control Systems
• Panic button/manual initiation systems
