Johnson Controls integrates exacqVision with ShotPoint for improved active shooter detection, reaction
MILWAUKEE (October 26, 2017) – Johnson Controls announced that its exacqVision video management system now integrates with Databuoy Corp.’s ShotPoint acoustic gunshot detection and localization system to speed response time and heighten the decision-making process for local responders during active shooter situations.
ShotPoint is an automated sensor-based system that reliably detects indoor and outdoor gunfire. Through the integration of ShotPoint’s camera cueing feature and exacqVision’s web client, designated responders are able to observe and react to a situation as it unfolds. Both an initial retrieved JPEG image and a video clip are made available based on exacq camera IDs within the shot zone.
ShotPoint’s shot zone reports, which identify a specific area where a gunshot occurred, are associated with various cameras via a look up table within Shotpoint. This association enables customers to more accurately manage their video surveillance cameras in real-time during an active shooter incident.
“Combining Shotpoint’s instantaneous shot detection with associated exacqVision surveillance imagery enables everyone involved, from first responders to site security personnel, to enhance their situational awareness,” said Ryan Hulse, senior product manager, Building Technologies & Solutions, Johnson Controls. “Knowing where shots are being fired and being able to see those areas leads to better decisions in critical, time-sensitive situations.”
