ZeroEyes Selected by South Side Area School District for Weapons Detection Solution

Technology will help protect students, faculty, and visitors by proactively monitoring and detecting threats at first sight PHILADELPHIA, PA – September 2, 2020 – ZeroEyes, the industry’s leading artificial intelligence weapons detection solution, today announced that it will provide its technology to the South Side Area School District in Beaver County, Pennsylvania. ZeroEyes’ platform is purpose-built to detect visible weapons in real-time, identifying guns before any violent threats can occur. ZeroEyes’ software integrates with an organization’s existing camera systems and video analytics to detect weapons in real time. As soon as a visible weapon is detected, an alert with the image of the weapon goes to the ZeroEyes monitoring team. Once confirmed, an alert is sent to a local emergency dispatch, onsite security staff, police and school administrators via mobile and desktop. South Side Area School District operates three schools: an elementary school, middle school, and high school, with approximately 980 students. The school has invested in a number of different technologies focused on keeping staff, students and visitors safe, taking a pioneering stance in prioritizing school safety. ZeroEyes is the first weapons detection solution installed on premises.  “As a rural public school district, it’s absolutely crucial for us to take the steps needed to ensure the safety of everyone who sets foot on campus,” said Alan Fritz, superintendent at South Side Area School District. “ZeroEyes has consistently demonstrated their steadfast focus and commitment to public safety, and we believe that their weapons detection solution will play a critical component in our overall security approach.”  ZeroEyes partners with its customers as well as local first responders to ensure that organizations – including schools, commercial and government buildings – have an additional layer of security to identify and stop threats. ZeroEyes’ AI weapons detection platform allows security personnel to quickly enact security protocols, or direct first responders to a threat.   “ZeroEyes was founded with the core focus to help mitigate school shootings, and we’re excited to partner with a school district that is taking proactive measures against active shooter threats,” said Dustin Brooks, vice president of K-12 education at ZeroEyes. “We look forward to the partnership with the South Side Area School District and forging a strong relationship built upon deeply caring about protecting students and faculty.” Founded by former Navy SEALs and military veterans with over 50 years of collective military experience, ZeroEyes’ mission is to detect weapons before shots are fired, enable faster response times for first responders and security personnel, and ultimately prevent mass shootings. ### About ZeroEyes ZeroEyes is an AI weapons detection platform that helps identify threats at first sight, integrating with existing IP security cameras to play one component of its overall security process, and provide security personnel and first responders with real-time information needed to keep people safe.

ZeroEyes Partners with RapidSOS to Immediately Inform 911 When Weapons Are Detected

Through this partnership ZeroEyes’ AI threat-detection software will be certified as RapidSOS Ready, allowing critical data and active threats to be sent directly to 911  PHILADELPHIA, PA (July 9, 2020) – ZeroEyes, an artificial intelligence weapon detection platform, today announced a partnership with RapidSOS to send threat detection and surveillance data directly to 911. Built in partnership with public safety, RapidSOS’s emergency response data platform securely and automatically links life-saving data from connected devices directly to over 4,700 emergency communications centers nationwide. ZeroEyes’ software integrates with an organization’s existing camera systems and video analytics to detect weapons in real time. As soon as a visible weapon is detected, an alert with the image of the weapon goes to the ZeroEyes monitoring team. Once confirmed, an alert is sent to a local emergency dispatch, onsite security staff, police and school administrators via mobile and desktop. Through the RapidSOS emergency response data platform, real-time data will be sent directly to 911 personnel when a threat occurs, helping to speed the response process.  Since 2009, at least 177 of America’s schools have experienced a shooting, with 114 people killed and 242 injured in shootings at K-12 schools through 2018. In these types of critical emergencies, seconds mean the difference between life and death. The detection of such threats before gunfire or attacks begin can reduce the response times of law enforcement and provide timely and clear information, ultimately saving lives. “Our mission is to ensure no one has to experience a traumatizing active shooter threat, especially our children,” said Mike Lahiff, CEO and co-founder at ZeroEyes. “With this partnership RapidSOS, we will be able to greatly reduce emergency response times and deliver better situational awareness to ensure the safety of the public.”  According to Viyas Sundaram, General Manager at RapidSOS, “We are excited to partner with ZeroEyes to bring this critical data directly onto 911 screens. This technology will give telecommunicators more visibility into what is occurring, helping inform the actions they take to get the right first responders on scene as quickly as possible.” With the launch of this solution this August, ZeroEyes’ technology will be certified as RapidSOS Ready – allowing critical data to be sent directly to local 911 agencies in an emergency through the RapidSOS platform.
