Why choose the Trinity Gunshot Alarm System?
We've all heard the statistics. Active shooter incidents are on the rise. Every news report creates fear and worry in schools, at work, and in other public places. We'd like it to stop. Stop the fear. Stop the worry. Feel reassured. This desire is what motivated us to create Trinity Gunshot Alarm System. We can't eliminate the risk, but we can help provide reassurance that you and emergency responders will be notified immediately. This adds precious minutes to your personal response plan and comfort knowing help is on the way.
Safety matters to us. Seconds matter to us. You matter to us.
How does it work?
Trinity is a completely automated gunshot alarm system that functions very similar to a fire alarm. Sensors are placed throughout the interior of a building protected by Trinity and these sensors are continuously scanning for the sound of a gunshot. If a gunshot is detected and confirmed, the system sounds a building alarm providing you valuable seconds to coordinate your safety, while simultaneously sending emergency responders critical, specific information that allows them to arrive informed and prepared to respond.
Frequently Asked Questions
What information will emergency responders receive in the notifications and how will they receive it?
The message emergency responders receive is completely automated and identified as "high priority - emergency information." It will include the date and time of a gunshot and the exact location of the shot. It will be in the form of text, email, or other forms of digital communication.
Do the sensors record conversations?
The sensors do NOT record conversations. They are programmed to scan sounds between very specific frequency intervals to capture the distinctive sound of a gunshot. Conversations and other voice recordings do not fall within those levels so you do not have to worry about your conversations being recorded.
What about false alarms?
A glass beaker breaking in the science lab, lockers slamming, even cymbals crashing during a pep rally will not activate Trinity's alarm system. Can we guarantee that there will NEVER be an event that the system is activated and did not involve a gunshot? Probably not, but our programming has been tested against multiple false positives and we feel our system adds such a significant benefit to your safety that a small chance of a false notification is well worth the greater benefit of immediate awareness.
Do I still need to call 911 during an active shooter incident if our building has trinity installed?
Although we're not suggesting you avoid calling for help, our system takes care of the calls for you. If you are in a safe environment where potentially disclosing your location will not jeopardize your safety or the safety of others, we certainly encourage you to call 911.
what type of health maintenance checks are made on trinity to make sure it's functioning properly?
Trinity monitors your system on a daily basis and will make repairs remotely if possible. If there is an extensive error, Trinity will notify your system representative and coordinate the repair immediately.
What type of building could benefit from trinity gunshot alarm system?
The short answer to that question is - any building with people in it because no building is immune to the possibility of an active shooter situation.
