victor VMS Now Integrates With Guardian Indoor Active Shooter Detection System
The integration between American Dynamics’ victor VMS and Shooter Detection Systems will help to identify gunshots more quickly.
WESTFORD, Mass. — Johnson Controls announces that its American Dynamics victor Video Management Software (VMS) now integrates with the Guardian Indoor Active Shooter Detection System from Shooter Detection Systems.
The integration provides users with an automated solution to react in real-time to shots fired in a facility.
“We are excited to offer this integrated solution to our customers who are investing in technology to address the active shooter threat,” says Christian Connors, chief executive officer of Shooter Detection Systems. “By combining our indoor gunshot detection system with a robust video management system like victor, customers gain immediate, automated insights the second a shot is fired, providing exceptional 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, according to the company.
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 victor VMS monitoring features, the system provides the ability for instant shot location information, lock down procedures, live and recorded video from cameras in the incident related areas.
The integration also provides immediate notification to first responders through victor’s event action and integration notification platform, and simultaneously alerts designated monitoring facilities around the globe.
These capabilities are also available through the integration of Guardian Indoor Active Shooter Detection System and the C•CURE 9000 security and event management system from Software House.
“This integration fully aligns with our vision to add mission critical solutions to our portfolio of integrations through our Connected Partner Program, where third-party technology partners have the opportunity to integrate into our security solutions,” says Kristy Dunchak, director, Building Technologies & Solutions, Johnson Controls.
