Connecting thousands of sensors, cameras, and other devices with Microsoft’s Azure cloud services, the solution combines an emergency notification system with real-time digital floor plans of the building. Security can quickly share vital information and respond more efficiently to crisis situations in schools, hospitals, public buildings, and more.
Devices such as cameras and alarms are shown in real-time. Responders can tap on a camera to view its live video feed. Architectural information, such as the location and even the material composition of doors and windows allows police and fire to respond to the situation in the best way possible.
Combined with Insight Connected Safety, ActiveShield features intelligent two-way communications capabilities and real-time alerts. Gunshot sensors can be set to automatically alert local law enforcement. Notifications can be broadcast on a mobile app to teachers, SRO’s, or school administrators, and information including evacuation instructions can be sent to connected devices such as color-coded light bulbs, and digital displays in hallways and classrooms.
