A provider of gunshot detection solutions has confirmed its new integration with Hanwha Vision.

Together, Shooter Detection Systems (SDS) and Hanwha will deliver improved safety when gun violence occurs.

The integration is between the SDS Indoor Gunshot Detection System and Hanwha Vision’s Wisenet WAVE VMS platform.

According to the companies, this integration will enable organisations 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.

This will enable customers to enhance their active shooter emergency response planning to include instant video capture, recording and tracking of gun violence events.

This additional situational awareness and instant automation will alert customers and their security teams to gunfire activity faster and with more accuracy, thereby reducing response time to gun violence incidents.

The SDS Indoor Gunshot Detection System is a network of smart sensors that utilise 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 integration with Hanwha Wisenet WAVE VMS will significantly expand situational awareness for security teams.

“Better visibility during emergency situations”

”We are excited to be collaborating with SDS,” said Mark Heintzman, Technical Partnership Manager, Hanwha Vision America.

“With this integrated solution we can provide our WAVE VMS customers with better visibility during emergency situations involving gunfire.”

“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,” added 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.”
