3xLOGIC Releases Single Sensor Gunshot Detection for Small Footprints
The new 3XLOGIC Single Sensor Gunshot Detector is designed for smaller spaces such as classrooms, and it can be installed indoors or outdoors.
FISHERS, Ind. — 3xLOGIC, a provider of integrated, intelligent security solutions, has announced a new range of deployment options for users seeking to protect smaller areas in active shooter situations with the new Single Sensor Gunshot Detection solution.
3xLOGIC’s Gunshot Detection devices use patented concussive wave technology to detect the moment at which a gun is fired and the bullet leaves the chamber. Upon firing, the force of the bullet leaving the chamber creates a concussive wave within a defined frequency range. The company points out that people can’t see concussive waves, but the 3xLOGIC Gunshot Detection device is tuned to detect those waves from any caliber gun.
The company explains that its eight-sensor unit is designed for larger spaces, mounted on the ceiling of a gymnasium, cafeteria, library, or pole-mounted outdoors to cover larger areas. This new Single Sensor Gunshot Detection product is designed for use in classrooms, conference rooms or hallways, and it fits many other indoor and outdoor applications such as stairwells, airport security check-in areas, marinas, boat docks, banks, professional offices, and other similar locations.
“By adding a Single Sensor option to our proven eight-sensor solution, we effectively open up an enormous market in which the larger unit was not well-suited for a smaller room or retail counter or office,” says Bill Hobbs, vice president, global sales, 3xLOGIC. “At this price point and range, just about any organization is now able to invest in this potentially life-saving technology.”
Single Sensor Gunshot Detection Product Provides High Levels of Safety
3XLOGIC explains the Single Sensor Gunshot Detector is an affordable option for smaller footprint requirements that can easily mount in a corner or against a wall. The Single Sensor is available in a metal or plastic case and can be powered by 12 volts DC or PoE power. The product can be deployed outdoors with the hardened metal enclosure, wall mounted, or integrators can corner mount the detector for indoor or outdoor applications.
The Midwest-based manufacturer points out that gun detection works like this: When a gun is fired the sensor quickly and accurately detects the gunshot — an alert is then triggered to a monitoring center or a video surveillance or access control system — then, the organization’s active shooter plan is engaged. The Single Sensor device has a range of 75 feet with 160° of coverage.
3xLOGIC Gunshot Detection devices regardless of whether they are a single or multisensor, easily and seamlessly integrate with other security systems. When a gun is fired in range of a sensor, the sensor will raise a contact closure to alert monitoring systems. A software integration option is also available that can provide additional details about the direction the gunfire originated from as well as the proximity of the gunshot to the sensor.
Potential pre-programmed active shooter plan actions include triggering an alarm in an intrusion system, as well as alerting a mass notification system, triggering an action via an access control system, enabling live and playback video on a video management system to provide additional verification, or any number of other pre-programmed actions and responses.
