DMP Announces Gunshot Detection Technology at Annual Owners Forum

Press release date: Apr 05, 2017

The DMP Owners Forum took place yesterday at the Encore Hotel & Resort. This invitation-only event takes place every year in Las Vegas the day before the ISC West Exhibit opens. DMP Executive Management gave attendees a behind-the-scenes look at a new exciting technology.

The Gunshot Detector is a new detection device that identifies gunshots within an indoor area, similar to the way a motion detector or smoke detector works, in conjunction with a standard alarm panel. The device detects gunshots through advanced acoustical analytics that reside within the device. This incredibly accurate technology discriminates gunshots from any other loud sounds and then communicates its detection as an alarm to the central station, local management software or system users through push notifications allowing an appropriate response by first responders or onsite guards.

This simple to install and manage system is impervious to privacy concerns because it is only connected to a traditional zone on an intrusion control panel. Unlike existing gunshot technology, this DMP detector does not require an additional special system, is easy to install and is very affordable.

“We believe the Gunshot Detector will give first responders the information they need to accurately assess active shooter situations, providing precise real-time information as to the location and movement of perpetrators,” said Executive Marketing Director, Mark Hillenburg.

Through the integration of our access control systems, schools, banks, and other public buildings can be immediately locked down to start appropriate safety procedures.

The DMP Gun Shot detector will be available this summer and is compatible with DMP XT and XR Series Panels.
