Safe Zone is a simple, reliable gunshot detection system made for real people"

No other solution currently available on the market can come close to matching Safe Zone’s accuracy, performance, reliability and cost-efficiency. In fact, Safe Zone shatters every conventional gunfire detection pricing model, offering average first year costs of around $.25 per-square-foot, less than one-fifth the cost of the current market entry price. Now, everyone can afford to purchase and install a gunfire detection system that will save the minutes that will save lives.”

In fact, according to Anderson, the combination of Safe Zone’s performance, sophisticated machine learning capabilities, affordable price, native messaging integration, and ease of installation and configuration make it the only practical choice for every type of facility.

"Safe Zone is a simple, reliable gunshot detection system made for real people,” Anderson emphasized. “Our approach is to provide blanket coverage with an easy-to-understand mobile app and assure your safety rather than scare you with the tactical jargon found throughout the industry."

Cloud-based machine learning system

Safe Zone combines state-of-the-art detection hardware with leading edge machine learning capabilities to create the worlds most sophisticated and reliable gunfire detection system ever brought to market. The system’s small inconspicuous sensors are designed to be quickly and easily installed throughout any facility to provide 24/7 active site-wide monitoring.

Key to the system’s performance accuracy is the patent-pending tri-mode data capture system

When gunfire occurs, Safe Zone alerts on-site security, building occupants and local authorities within seconds and provides detailed information that includes number of shots fired, type of weapon, and a map tracking the shooter’s location and movement.

Key to the system’s performance accuracy is the patent-pending tri-mode data capture system that features acoustic, spectral and shock wave sensors that instantaneously collect data that is then analyzed by a cloud-based machine learning system.

Built-in automated response system

If gunfire is confirmed, Safe Zone immediately activates the built-in automated response system that connects to all 9-1-1 Emergency Communications Centers (ECC). Safe Zone is the only gunfire detection system currently featuring this type of automated platform, according to Anderson.

Push alert notifications are immediately sent to team member mobile devices with the free mobile app that can be downloaded from the Apple Store and the Google Play Store. In addition, SMS text messages are sent to an unlimited number of contacts in a user-managed list.

Law enforcement and first responders arrive on the scene faster and are armed with the vital, real-time intelligence"

What’s more, Safe Zone integrates with other systems such as door locks, alarm panels, cameras and emergency notification systems that can be programmed to respond in the event of an alert.

Real-time intelligence

Law enforcement and first responders arrive on the scene faster and are armed with the vital, real-time intelligence they need regarding weapon type, total shots fired, and the shooter’s current and previous locations indicated on a floor plan,” he emphasized.

Safe Zone is available in both Wi-Fi and PoE detector versions. Dealers can place orders through their local Safe Zone sales representative: Security Solutions (SSI) Lanier Rep Group (LRG), or Thomasson Marketing Group (TMG).

Safe Zone is available for immediate delivery through a national network of sales representatives and distributors. The certified network has been educated and tested to ensure the quality and reliability of each and every Safe Zone Gunfire detection system installation. Round the clock training is available through Safe Zone Academy, the same online education center used to train and certify all Safe Zone installers and resellers.

What Is The Impact Of Remote Working On Security?
What Is The Impact Of Remote Working On Security?

During the coronavirus lockdown, employees worked from home in record numbers. But the growing trend came with a new set of security challenges. We asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: What is the impact of the transition to remote working/home offices on the security market?

The Future Of Accommodation: When Coliving And PropTech Combine
The Future Of Accommodation: When Coliving And PropTech Combine

As technology develops at an ever-faster rate, the possibilities for where and how new innovations can be used are endless. The property sector is one such area where new technology, such as smarter video surveillance, is being used to improve the quality of life for families and communities by increasing security as well as implementing changes based on new insights. Specifically for the coliving movement, cloud-based video surveillance is helping operators to improve the communal spaces for their tenants in ways that on-premises surveillance never could. From tighter security measures to better social spaces, here’s how coliving is benefitting from the PropTech (property technology) boom. What is coliving? The coliving movement is the latest iteration of a recurring human trend. The act of communally sharing space and resources while benefiting from a supportive community is something we’ve seen time and again throughout history. A place that everyone can call home addresses multiple needs. With the concept of shared spaces, and the possibility to work and socialize together, it’s no longer simply a trend. Specifically for the coliving movement, cloud-based video surveillance is helping operators to improve the communal spaces for their tenants in ways that on-premises surveillance never could. As living expenses become ever higher, for many – particularly younger – people getting on the property ladder is difficult, and renting an apartment alone can feel isolating. Coliving spaces offer a ready-built community, and many responsibilities – like maintenance, for example – lie with the building owners, and the cost is included. Where does PropTech come in? PropTech is dramatically changing the way people research, rent, buy, sell and manage property. The combination of the internet, huge compute power, cloud platforms and artificial intelligence (AI) have all combined to create technologies that are transforming the way the entire property sector works. Whether that’s helping buildings to operate more efficiently or even become more sustainable, PropTech is a sector that’s on the rise. When it comes to coliving, PropTech is helping to make these environments safer and smarter for the people who live there. One of the fundamental areas of building design is people’s safety. Following the past year where health has been at the forefront of everyone’s minds, PropTech is enabling entrance systems with touchless doorways and innovative ventilation systems, for example. And even without taking the pandemic into consideration, people living in shared spaces need to be confident that the security is well-managed, and the management wants to ensure that only tenants and their guests can enter the premises. How cloud video surveillance drives better coliving Once seen as an ‘add-on’ to building design, video surveillance and access control are now becoming increasingly important elements of the PropTech movement, and they are equally as desirable for coliving too. Surveillance cameras are essentially sensors that can monitor activity, patterns, and any other changes in a given environment. Analysis of video data can occur in real-time to effect changes immediately, or video can be stored and evaluated at a later date. In a co-living environment, a cloud-based video surveillance system can help operators to understand how tenants use their space, and implement changes to benefit them. Traditionally, video surveillance data stored on-premises had limited uses, as it was often only accessed after a security incident, such as a break-in. The video therefore wouldn’t be used frequently and the camera and storage system would just be another cost not yielding any ROI. Cloud technology has had a dramatic impact on video surveillance. Remote management delivers the ability to modify, adjust and perfect the system without needing to be present at the site, while remote monitoring alerts operators to any unusual incidents such as an equipment malfunction or breakage. In a co-living environment, a cloud-based video surveillance system can help operators to understand how tenants use their space, and implement changes to benefit them. For example, surveillance can show operators which areas in the communal spaces are frequented the most and at what times, including areas such as the laundry room or gym where space might be limited. By using AI to analyze the video, operators can use insights from it to improve the existing set up wherever possible, and also learn lessons about how to better design future coliving spaces. In today’s world, this technology can also help to keep everyone safe and healthy. Cameras can identify if someone is wearing a face mask as they go to enter a building and deny entry until they put one on. Thermal cameras are another easy tool to screen people for an elevated temperature before they even enter a communal space. Though a raised temperature does not mean you have COVID-19, the technology can provide an initial screening, so that individuals with elevated temperature readings can be checked manually for other symptoms or possibly be recommended for a test. The future of smart living Coliving is not a new phenomenon – humans have been living in communal places for many years, working and socializing together for the benefit of everyone. What makes today’s coliving movement unique is the range of rapidly developing technology that is being implemented to improve the environments for tenants. As an arguably lower cost and higher quality way of life, coliving spaces are certainly here to stay, and so the PropTech surge is no doubt going to grow with it.

How Have Security Solutions Failed Our Schools?
How Have Security Solutions Failed Our Schools?

School shootings are a high-profile reminder of the need for the highest levels of security at our schools and education facilities. Increasingly, a remedy to boost the security at schools is to use more technology. However, no technology is a panacea, and ongoing violence and other threats at our schools suggest some level of failure. We asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: How have security solutions failed our schools and what is the solution?
