LENSEC and ShotSpotter have formed a technology partnership to integrate ShotSpotter’s gunshot detection technology with LENSEC’s Perspective Video Management Software (PVMS). The merged technologies automate workflows within the PVMS platform to deliver crucial surveillance footage immediately after detecting a gunshot. This new integration saves law enforcement time in critical situations where every second matters.
Using ShotSpotter acoustic sensors and live IP camera feeds within PVMS, security professionals immediately have eyes on the area where a gunshot is detected. Automated workflows within the PVMS platform direct cameras at the incident location and pull camera feeds closest to the site. PVMS also has a neighboring camera feature that allows other cameras located near the area of interest to capture and track individuals or objects such as fleeing vehicles. Whether a suspect or a victim, neighboring cameras provide constant monitoring of individuals as they move through the area. All available tactical intelligence and live surveillance footage is compiled and can become immediately accessible.
The automated reactions allow first responders to respond directly to the injured parties without scrambling to find their location. Additionally, the tracking feature works on suspected shooters, allowing for continued live monitoring of fleeing individuals or vehicles. If the suspects leave the area, the footage captured from the scene allows law enforcement to quickly send out accurate “be on the lookout” profiles.
“The ShotSpotter and LENSEC integration has the potential to save lives based on the automated gunshot triggered workflows,” said Michael Trask, director of North American sales for LENSEC. “The quicker law enforcement can get eyes on suspects and victims, the quicker they can get to work.”
