    What We Do

    There were 372 mass shootings in the US in 2015, killing 475 people and wounding 1,870. The police on average are only called 5 minutes after the shooting starts, leading to substantial loss of life. First responders are typically on the scene 3 minutes later.

    The AmberBox detector utilises a patented gunshot detection algorithms to respond immediately following a firearm discharge. Utilising combined audio and infrared detection algorithm, the detector is able to determine the firearm signature instantly with a near-zero false alarm rate. Upon activation, the detector alerts the first responders through our reporting network, and can link to a access control system to initiate lockdown. It can also sound an alarm signal throughout the detector network if desired as part of a response plan.

    As a result lives are saved through an instant warning, customisable notification system and building lockdown, reducing police response times by up to 63%.
