Guns can be detected using school surveillance cameras and our machine learning algorithms. Security or dispatch center will be notified in no time through our cloud-based text messages, emails and mobile app services, and they can immediately activate school lockdown after confirmation of the alert. Our algorithm can locate and track the active shooter(s) in real time.
