August 16, 2023  By  SP&T Staff

Shooter Detection Systems (SDS), an Alarm.com company, announced it has integrated its technology with Hanwha Vision.

The integration between the SDS Indoor Gunshot Detection System and Hanwha Vision’s Wisenet WAVE VMS platform will enable organizations to automatically alert security teams at schools, office buildings, and other facilities to gunshot activity by triggering alarms, associate live video feeds with real-time tracking of assailants, and take other automated actions when gunfire is detected by the SDS system.

“We are excited to be collaborating with Shooter Detection Systems,” said Mark Heintzman, Hanwha Vision America’s technical partnership manager in a statement. “With this integrated solution we can provide our WAVE VMS customers with better visibility during emergency situations involving gunfire.”

According to the company, the SDS Indoor Gunshot Detection System is a network of smart sensors that utilize advanced acoustic detection technology combined with infrared detection to immediately and accurately detect gunshots happening inside a building — without needing line of sight to the weapon.

The SDS sensor instantly transmits shot location information to the SDS floor plan mapping software, onsite security teams, and building points of contact simultaneously, while also delivering shot alerts directly to the PSAP.

The integration with Hanwha Wisenet WAVE VMS will expand situational awareness by automating live video and other actions in response to gunshot detection alerts.

“We are excited to partner with Hanwha Vision to bring our mutual customers an advanced solution that further automates the emergency communications process when seconds can save lives,” said Yanik Brunet, vice-president of sales, SDS. “As a known, trusted brand, Hanwha Vision will accelerate our ability to reach additional markets and address this critical problem in our society together.”
