Omnilert has announced the integration of its artificial intelligence (AI) visual gun detection system with the Rhombus physical security platform to deliver a complete solution for gun detection and verification, emergency notification and crisis management.

According to Omnilert, this integration provides a coordinated incident response workflow by combining the capabilities and ecosystems of both products to broadcast multi-channel alerts, activate other safety systems and automate processes to share intelligence throughout an incident to ensure the best possible outcomes.

By leveraging Omnilert Gun Detect, Rhombus customers will be able to detect guns from existing security cameras and receive human-verified alerts across any configured platform.

Rhombus customers can take advantage of Omnilert’s complimentary monitoring service or choose to verify detections themselves in their own security operations center using the Rhombus platform.

“The ability to detect guns, send instant alerts and reduce the time it takes to respond to threats can significantly help our customers prevent injuries and loss of life in the event of an active shooter situation,” said Garrett Larsson, CEO of Rhombus.

“We believe Omnilert Gun Detect is a game changer in active shooter situations and can deliver a much-needed layer of 24/7 protection to all of our customers.”

“Because our software is flexible and easy to integrate, it can be customized to meet the specific needs of any organization, which is key for Rhombus customers operating in a wide range of industries such as education, healthcare, manufacturing and government,” said Nick Gustavsson, CTO of Omnilert.

“Whether a company has ten or 10,000 cameras, our software can monitor every single one simultaneously and watch for guns – and unlike human monitoring, it never gets tired or stops to take a break.”
