Omnilert, the innovation leader and most trusted partner in emergency communications, and Axis Communications, the market leader in network video, today announced a partnership leveraging their combined security technologies to provide a proactive response to gun violence in campus communities. 

Omnilert Gun Detect, the industry’s first AI-powered visual gun detection solution, integrates with Axis video surveillance systems to reliably and rapidly recognise firearms and immediately trigger multi-channel alerts and automated pre-defined safety protocols. The integration of these rich capabilities provides campus safety teams with the broadest array of solutions, spanning prevention, notification, engagement and management.

“The partnership between Omnilert and Axis will enhance our ability to prevent loss of life in the event of an active shooter situation,” said Ara Bagdasarian, Co-Founder of Omnilert. “Our advanced technologies provide a more robust product offering, greatly increasing campus safety and security.”

In November 2020, Omnilert launched Gun Detect to provide safety teams with advance warning before shots are fired. Designed for privacy and performance, Gun Detect is a software solution typically deployed on-premise and integrated with IP-based video surveillance and camera systems to detect and prevent critical events before they occur.

“A holistic approach to school security is proving to be best,” stated Bruce Canal, Segment Development Manager for Education at Axis Communications. “There is not a single solution that can totally protect our kids; however, bringing professionals together in this type of forum works toward that end. Together, we weave a formidable solution.”
