What Board of Education Members Need to Know When Looking at Gun Detection Technology

Over 187,000 students in grades K-12 have experienced school shootings since the Columbine High School massacre in 1999. School boards struggle to find the best methods of ensuring the safety of their students while balancing other issues such as accuracy, cost, privacy issues, and legal liability. 

ZeroEyes provides school boards and school administrators with the balance of security, accuracy, cost effectiveness, and legality they need to keep their students protected. 

ZeroEyes was developed and is maintained by former Navy SEALs. This is a critical distinction between ZeroEyes and other services that offer some degree of gun detection. We have the real-life, battle-hardened experience that delivers a depth of weapons understanding and emergency-response training that few, if any, security firms offer. 

Our deep-learning artificial intelligence algorithms are designed by former military technology experts highly trained in weaponry and weapons identification. And because we specialize in gun detection, our system provides a level of accuracy that more complicated systems do not.

ZeroEyes is designed to integrate into your current surveillance system, making it very cost effective. And our partnership with RapidSOS, a cutting-edge technology platform that provides a direct link to emergency services, allows us to send threat detection and surveillance data directly to 911.

This technology ensures that first responders receive threat data immediately if ZeroEyes detects the presence of firearms. Our technology also gives ongoing real-time situational intelligence to law enforcement during the active shooter situation, while former soldiers personally direct the flow of real-time intel from our headquarters, partnering with first responders to neutralize the threat quickly.

Some gun detection systems risk opening up the school to lawsuits because they indiscriminately scan individuals or provide facial recognition. These programs are under scrutiny for privacy law infractions and may lead to lawsuits. They also increase the risk of false-positives by misidentifying harmless objects as weapons, which can also lead to legal problems. 

In a nutshell, when a board of education is looking for gun detection technology, they should look for the following criteria:

Developers who are experts in the field of weaponry and emergency situations

A system that specializes in gun detection, rather than offering multiple services of questionable quality

A company that provides immediate warnings and ongoing, real-time data to first responders to help them neutralize the threat, along with real-time collaboration with experts in weaponry and emergency response

A system that integrates into your current security system, thus providing cost effectiveness along with safety 

Only ZeroEyes offers you all of this. Our mission is to ensure no one has to experience a traumatizing active shooter threat, especially children. Call us today to see how we can partner with you to keep your students and teachers safe.


Our team consists of former Navy SEALs, military personnel and technology experts with a passion for contributing to the greater good. We're subject matter experts in the fields of weaponry and gun-detection technology, and our sole focus is creating easy-to-use, non-invasive software to help prevent mass shootings and gun-related violence.
