Following the worldwide debut of its Safe Zone Gunfire Detector (opens in new tab) (GFD) at CES 2019, Safe Zone today announced the completion of a $1-million round of funding anchored by Tampa, Florida based Seedfunders (opens in new tab), the strengthening of its North American market distribution and the expansion of its senior leadership team.
In addition to the new round of funding and management team appointments, Anderson today announced that Stampede, the global leader in value-added ProAV solutions, has been appointed to distribute the Safe Zone product line throughout North America.
Designed and manufactured in the United States, and priced at $149.00 per unit, the Safe Zone Gunfire Detector combines infrared and acoustic detection technologies with immediate cloud-based data analysis. By utilizing the data from multiple detectors simultaneously, the system determines the location of shots fired, the number of shots, and the type and caliber of gun being used.
Within ten seconds of the trigger pull, an alert is sent to the appropriate dispatch center, giving local 911 dispatchers information on their existing displays.
The Safe Zone Gunfire Detector is a small (less than 3” x 3”) triangular unit that mounts in a ceiling corner and provides gunfire detection for an area of up to 9,000 ft3. Safe Zone can be connected to third-party alarm, surveillance, door lock and mass notification systems to provide a complete emergency response solution.
