The HawkEye Effect Partners with Gun-shot Detection Firm, ShotSpotter™
Congratulations to our software development partner, The HawkEye Effect, in being recognized for its technical contribution to the winner of the 2018 Best IP Video Surveillance Award*, Milestone Systems.
The HawkEye Effect’s specialized camera software was installed in the city of Hartford’s (CT) Real-Time Crime and Data Intelligence Center to augment the effectiveness of the city’s investment in the ShotSpotter™ system (Shotspotter) while enhancing the capabilities of Milestone’s video management system. Here’s how it works:
When ShotSpotter acoustically detects a gunshot, The HawkEye Effect software geo-references the exact coordinates of the incident to instantly activate all positional cameras in closest proximity to the incident to:
- Monitor ongoing activity
- Track and record (in real-time) those fleeing the scene
- Improve situational awareness for first-responders
- Provide ease-of-retrieval of video forensic evidence to support the investigative process
In the following video, Jeffrey Blair, CEO of The HawkEye Effect, discusses how the company’s software uses geo-spatial positioning coordinates to provide timely, automatic, pre-programmed responses to security incidents. Watch Video.
These technologies together enable security professionals to connect sensor technologies with critical response systems creating a fully integrated, multi-layered approach to security.
