School shootings are an unfortunate aspect of our reality. While it sometimes can feel like there is little that can be done, our team here at ASAP Security has been making it our mission to help keep our schools and communities safe.
Schools should be a place of learning for our children. Whether you're a concerned parent or administrator, here is all you have to know about gunshot detection.
📖THE HISTORY OF GUNSHOT DETECTION 📖
Gunshot detection has been used since before WW I, but first brought to the public in the 1990s in East Palo Alto and Menlo Park, California.
Today, gunshot detection technology has significantly advanced and is being used across the country from Birmingham to Boston.
The Savannah College of Art and Design is using it inside academic buildings, and South Africa’s Kruger National Park has implemented it to prevent rhino poaching.
🤔HOW IT WORKS TODAY 🤔
If a gunshot goes off on your premises, the system will use either acoustic, infrared, or shockwave sensors to identify where the explosive charge ignited.
It will locate the source and direction of the shot and then use zero false lead technology to differentiate gunshots from similar sounds like fireworks or car backfires.
Once the gunshot is located, it can trigger a series of events through your security system to take action.
Authorities will automatically be contacted, and a notification will be sent across mobile devices and mass communication systems to notify your staff and security team. Alarms will go off, and your security will be able to lock down targeted areas instantly.
