Gunshot

Detects shots up to 250 m and more.
Detection of gunshot sound within 5 seconds.
Detection of the surroundings takes place in real time.
It will reduce the response time of the security forces.
In accordance with GDPR.

Aggressive behavior involving gunshots on city streets, in shopping malls and other public places is becoming increasingly common, that’s why gunshot detection monitoring is a crucial aspect of public safety. This kind of violence has a devastating impact on citizens and creates an atmosphere of fear, insecurity, and unease in public spaces. The Sound Event Detector employs advanced algorithms to detect and analyze shot sounds.

The SED detects a shot within 5 seconds and up to 250+ metres.

Sound Event Detector | Event location

Our solution is continuously tested in a real environment together with the Czech Police. The simulated attack carried out by the Czech Police at a Prague gymnasium served not only to train and improve the reaction ability of the security forces, but also as an important test of the SED detector.

The SED had excellent results during the simulated attack and successfully detected gunshots, aggressive behaviour and panic screams.

The implementation of a Sound Event Detector (SED), specifically designed for gun shots, has proven to be highly effective in enhancing public safety. By leveraging advanced audio analysis algorithms, the system can accurately detect and classify gun shots in real time.

SED allows individuals to transmit instant alerts, ensuring they are aware of potential threats. Additionally, integrating SED’s gunshot detection technology with local law enforcement or agencies into the appropriate VMS system allows for a quick and effective response to active shooter situations.

SED has the potential to save lives and prevent further damage in critical threat situations due to the detector’s capability and its significantly reduced response time to a dangerous situation.

The Sound Event Detector does not violate data protection principles and can therefore be installed even where a camera system cannot be, for example, due to GDPR violations or costly implementation.

How is it possible that the SED detector does not violate the privacy policy? SED only detects and alerts on specific impulsive sounds such as gunshots, aggression, panic screams, glass breaking and vandalism. The great advantage of the SED is that it can be installed in places where cameras cannot be, such as toilets, cloakrooms and other places without CCTV.

Primary SED features

Detects the area at 360°

SoundEventDetector (SED) automatically detects the area at 360° and reacts to a dangerous situation within 5 seconds. This significantly reduces the response time of security forces, which on average is up to 7 minutes. Thanks to SED, the emergency call is digitized, making it faster and more accurate.

Software compatibility

SoundEventDetector (SED) comes with its own dedicated security software (VMS) free of charge, but is compatible with other third-party VMS for direct integration with the camera system via API (ONVIF/RestAPI) and also mechanically thanks to an integrated relay.

No-limitation usecase

The detector can be used both indoors and outdoors situations. It's thanks to the well-crafted case.

100% GDPR compliant

The use of SoundEventDetector (SED) is GDPR compliant. Our solution does not record sound, it only sends meta-information, so it cannot identify a specific person and misuse personal data.
