STANLEY Security, a leading global manufacturer and integrator of comprehensive security solutions for a wide range of industries, announced a partnership with Shooter Detection Systems LLC (SDS), a gunshot detection solutions provider. As an authorized dealer, STANLEY Security is now certified to sell, install and service SDS products and services.

SDS’s Guardian Indoor Active Shooter Detection System combines acoustic gunshot identification software with infrared gunfire flash detection for a fully automated gunshot detection and alerting solution. The Guardian System immediately detects gunshots and simultaneously alerts building occupants and first responders within one second and with zero false alerts, the company described.

“We understand the importance of having a fully comprehensive security system, including gunshot detection, and we are committed to this technology and all the individuals, campuses and businesses it can help to keep safe,” said Brad McMullen, vice president marketing and product solutions, STANLEY Security. “Being able to activate an alert and notify emergency personnel in near real-time during a crisis situation is critical. Additionally, integrating this technology with video management and access control systems can provide our customers with more robust incident response plans.”

The Guardian System processes all gunshot data within the sensor, removing the need for human interpretation or intervention and saving time when seconds matter most. When a shot is detected, the Guardian System instantly alerts users to location of shots on a mapping interface and simultaneously sends this information by SMS text message, email and via other third-party alert systems. 

“STANLEY has been a leader in security for decades, and we are excited to partner with a global company so well-known and respected in the industry,” said Dan Michelinie, senior director of sales and business development, Shooter Detection Systems. “As the number of incidents continues to increase at an alarming rate, the joint presence of SDS and STANLEY will allow this advanced solution to reach more schools, businesses, hospitals and ultimately, improve emergency response time.”
