Modernizing School Security. Augment Existing Cameras with AI.
School shootings are becoming far too regular, and so nationally, the question has become: how can we prevent school shootings? There are countless suggestions and ideas, but there’s at least one clear answer – we need to modernize school security to prevent gun violence. One way schools can do that is through utilizing AI-powered gun detection technology which is part of the all-in-one Scylla School Security Suite that is designed to help protect lives of the faculty, students and visitors at school premises.
Track All Violence Within the School
Scylla works as a piece of software that detects, identifies, and reports directly to law enforcement every time a gun is drawn in a school. Being able to identify threats and contact authorities automatically can save minutes in response time, allowing police to arrive on the scene quicker.
In comparison to a human having to identify the threat and make the call to authorities, Scylla can potentially stop a school shooting before it even happens.
Detect When Guns are Drawn in the School
Scylla is able to hook into your existing security camera systems, and with the power of AI, analyze video streams for threats. Scylla Face Recognition module can be used to identify suspects. Biometrics is used for identification, and Scylla can even watch for known criminals, including most wanted subjects, sex offenders, missing persons, etc.
The AI is even able to recognize suspicious items, including unattended bags, cargo, and weapons. The con here is that Scylla can’t identify concealed weapons, but can identify the attributes of someone carrying a concealed weapon, or can instantly detect it when it’s drawn.
Track Active Shooter Movements in Real-time
Once a threat is identified, Scylla Object Tracking system can keep tabs on the suspect throughout the security camera network, giving police and law enforcement real-time location information. With live streaming enabled — and thus instant detection — Scylla can transmit all of the most pertinent information to police, law enforcement, and even your school’s on-site security team.
Of course, one of the problems that schools have with the software is the cost. After all, school budgets are already under tight constraints, and there’s usually little room for any extras. Certainly, the Scylla software will cost something, but it’s a fairly affordable way to modernize school security since the AI is compatible with existing camera systems. Your school doesn’t need all-new hardware for this threat detection technology. The only requirement here is that your servers need to support GPU acceleration.
