Boucherle Pick: Threat Extinguisher Device

The patented Threat Extinguisher (TE) creates a new security product category to address the active shooter, extreme violence or home invasion threats we face today in an effective, flexible and nonlethal way. It is designed to do three things as a complete system: alert designated people with text messages (e.g. students, parents, resource officers); notify authorities (first responders via a central station); and finally defend, with tactical-grade military pepper spray with a range of 20+ feet. TE is charged with about 50 shots and operates like a fire extinguisher. The product is hardware agnostic, allowing flexibility for deployment as a retrofit security layer, and can disable an attacker to save lives. It comes in two product configurations: a smart base for flexible tabletop mounting and smart case for use in public areas with break glass access.
