LEESBURG, Va. — Active shooter solutions provider Omnilert announced that its visual gun detection system, Omnilert Gun Detect, is certified with the Genetec Security Center, an open-architecture platform that unifies IP-based video surveillance, access control, communications and analytics.

This integration “will enable Genetec customers to incorporate visual gun detection technology with their existing surveillance cameras in order to identify gun threats at first sight and ensure a rapid, automated response that may include notifying police, locking doors, sounding alarms, and alerting anyone in the nearby proximity,” according to the joint announcement.

Powered by artificial intelligence (AI), Omnilert Gun Detect is “the most effective active shooter solution that can save lives through the unique combination of early visual detection, mass communication, and automated response,” the announcement says.

Once a gun detection is verified, multi-channel alerts and automated safety protocols and systems can be activated by Omnilert Gun and/or Genetec Security Center through the integration to “help stop active shooters, warn those in harm’s way and potentially save many lives,” according to the announcement.

“The ability to quickly detect, notify and manage an active shooter crisis is critical for ensuring a successful outcome that prevents loss of life,” says Dave Fraser, CEO of Omnilert, in the joint announcement.

“Through this integration, Genetec customers can now have access to these capabilities, turning their existing video surveillance investment into an always-on and effective gun detection and automated response platform,” he says.

“The integration of Omnilert Gun Detect with Security Center will help security teams respond quickly and support their actions by automating essential safety protocols in gun threat situations, all while using the existing cameras and hardware,” says Mathieu Goloubiatnikov, DAP team lead at Genetec Inc., in the joint announcement.
