Brivo Integrates with ZeroEyes to Address Gun-Related Violence, by Saving Time to Save Lives
ZeroEyes' AI-based human-verified gun detection solution is now integrated into Brivo Access, allowing users to lock doors remotely when an active shooter is present
BETHESDA, Md. and PHILADELPHIA, May 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Brivo, a leading provider in cloud-based access control and smart building technologies that entered into a definitive merger agreement with Crown PropTech Acquisitions (NYSE: CPTK), today announced an integration with ZeroEyes, the leading AI-based gun detection solution. This new integration seamlessly combines Brivo Access with ZeroEyes AI-based gun detection by automatically locking entryways remotely as soon as a firearm is detected onsite. The partnership also serves to inform first-responder decisions by providing them with near-real time information, including where the shooter is located, what the shooter looks like and which entryways have been locked.
"Improving safety has always been our north star at Brivo," said Steve Van Till, founder and CEO of Brivo. "Combining our cloud-based access control solution with ZeroEyes gun detection closely aligns with Brivo's mission to make the world a safer place, and demonstrates how vital access control is in today's world."
Since the Columbine High massacre in 1999, nearly 300,000 students have experienced gun violence at school, and at least 2,000 people have been killed or injured in mass shootings in the U.S. The Brivo-ZeroEyes integration empowers clients to activate secure barriers between shooters and their target, adding a crucial layer of security during active shooter situations. When a gun is identified by ZeroEyes' gun detection algorithm and verified by the company's team of military veterans, who monitor detections 24/7/365, customer administrators and first responders are notified through ZeroEyes' software application. From there, administrators can leverage Brivo Access to lock entryways as needed and first responders can make informed decisions about their strategy.
"As the U.S. grapples with record numbers of shootings year after year in schools, businesses and other government spaces, ZeroEyes is on a mission to utilize proactive solutions to save as many lives as possible in active shooter situations," said Mike Lahiff, CEO and co-founder of ZeroEyes. "Partnering with Brivo allows us to do just that, and strengthens our overall offering by giving customers the ability to instantly lock doors remotely when a weapon is detected onsite. With the combination of ZeroEyes AI gun detection software and Brivo's cloud-based door access control, the customer's security decision makers can radically improve their ability to protect against gun violence before the first shot is fired, a vital step in saving time and saving lives."
