Databuoy Corporation announced that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) granted Safety Act Designation Protections for their ShotPoint shooter localization system. The SAFETY (Support Anti-Terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies) designation extends DHS liability protection for ShotPoint customers with regard to claims related to or resulting from acts of terrorism where ShotPoint has been deployed.

ShotPoint is a unique sensor system that provides reliable shooter detection and localization coverage for both indoor and outdoor areas, the manufacturer described. ShotPoint automatically transmits alerts to access control systems, camera systems, notification applications and other subscribers within a second of shooter detection. This effectively removes the uncertainty about who and where the shooters are, and instantly sets the response in motion with information that is critical to saving lives, according to the company. Databuoy said it is committed to providing the most effective and reliable shooter detection and localization product available.

“Receiving this designation is a great step for ShotPoint. It means that the DHS stands behind our system. They’ve gone through a detailed review and validated that ShotPoint is a potentially life-saving technology,” Kathleen Griggs, president, Databuoy, said.
