New Shot Tracer Hawk Outdoor Gunshot Detection Sensor Debuts at ISC West 2019

ShotTracer HAWK

Shot Tracer® is showcasing its newly introduced Hawk Outdoor Gunshot Detection Sensor here at ISC West 2019 (booth #1092).

Hawk extends the extreme accuracy, life-saving detection capabilities and cost-effectiveness of Shot Tracer’s proven gunshot detection solutions to encompass exterior locations. By automatically detecting and pushing notifications of gunshot activity from the instant an incident begins to unfold, Hawk further empowers security personnel and first responders to best manage active shooter situations before a facility is breached.

“The introduction of Shot Tracer Hawk rounds-out our portfolio of highly advanced and accurate gunshot detection and notification solutions to now include outdoor locations,” said Allan Overcast, CEO and President of Shot Tracer Technologies.

“Every second counts in an active shooter situation and Hawk’s ability to detect gunshots from outdoor locations in real-time allows security and personnel to react to unfolding active shooter situations before an assailant enters a facility.”

The new Shot Tracer Hawk Outdoor Gunshot Detection Sensor is as easy to implement as its indoor equivalent, Shot Tracer’s Eagle. Hawk easily integrates with virtually any security, alarm, surveillance and access system via contact closure (Hawk AP) – or wirelessly via IP integration (Hawk IP).

Upon detection of a gunshot, Hawk AP immediately sends a contact closure alert to the facility’s alarm panel indicating if it was a single or multiple gunshot event. Hawk IP sends alerts of detected gunshots’ time, location and number of shots fired over Verizon (USA) or Vodafone (Global) wireless services to user-designated individuals including local police and medical facilities.

This eliminates the need for any additional external monitoring services. A PAN Wireless option is also available to pair Hawk IP sensors with other wireless sensors.

The Shot Tracer Hawk Outdoor Gunshot Detection Sensor will be available June 1st, 2019.

Shot Tracer Technologies developed its innovative Shot Tracer gunshot detection solution in 2010 in response to the shooting death of a local Montana Highway Patrol officer.
