V5 Systems’ software-based gunshot detection sensor that uses artificial intelligence to send accurate mobile alerts wins award at 4th annual Security Sales & Integration (SSI) event.
FREMONT, Calif., April 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — V5 Systems won the prestigious 2018 SSI MVP award for its V5 Portable Security Unit with Acoustic Gunshot Sensor combo unit (V5 PSU with GSL Sensor). The solar-powered unit uses both eyes (video surveillance) and ears (acoustic gunshot sensor) in one turnkey security solution.
Security Sales & Integration is a premier institution within the security industry, and the SSI MVP (Most Valuable Player) award is highly competitive.
The SSI MVP Awards recognizes products that offer substantial benefits to security integrators, as well as the ability of products to open new markets. The V5 PSU with GSL Sensor gives systems integrators and resellers a competitive advantage as traditional units must be wired to the grid and require costly trenching and time-consuming permitting.
Steve Yung, CEO of V5 Systems, states, “We are very proud of this win because it validates our self-powered and portable edge analytics approach to Acoustics Signature Detection. For this specific application, it is gunshot detection. However, our V5 Acoustics Sensor capabilities go well beyond gunshot detection and have a wide variety of applications. This is consistent with V5 Systems’ approach to designing multi-sensor Industrial IoT edge analytics capabilities. Unfortunately, today more than ever, our schools and campuses need real-time portable gunshot detection to assist first responders to locate active shooters as quickly as possible.”
The V5 PSU with GSL Sensor has become more critical than ever due to the dramatic rise in shooter incidents. Between the years 2000 and 2016, there were 220 FBI-designated active shooter incidents and 1,486 casualties, including 661 killed and 825 wounded. During the past two years, the frequency of mass shootings has increased even more.
The recent school shooting in Parkland, Florida offers a stark illustration of the devastating swiftness of such an attack. According to Time Magazine, the entire shooting lasted just six minutes and twenty seconds, leaving 17 people dead and another 14 wounded.
Unlike traditional gunshot location (GSL) systems that require human staff to listen, validate gunshots and notify law enforcement, a process that can take up to seven minutes or longer, the innovative V5 GSL unit enables police or school security to pinpoint the location of any shooter within 3 seconds.
Traditional systems must also be connected to the electric grid, which requires costly trenching for wiring and incurs another delay due to the time required for permitting.
Since the V5 PSU with V5 GSL Sensor is portable and wireless, it allows police to move the unit rapidly to active hotspots. Recently, Bay Area police were able to move these units 12 times within one month to follow a moving serial shooter and apprehend him.
