Frequently Asked Questions

What is Acoustic Threat Detection?

Acoustic Threat Detection (ATD) uses artificial intelligence to detect and localize threats to public safety. Using a sensor in conjunction with a PTZ surveillance camera, ATD let’s you hear and see threats through your VMS or access control system  as soon as they happen.

What can the ATD sensor detect?

Threats can include gunshots, elevated voices, fireworks, explosions, shattering glass, and more.

How does ATD detect a threat?

In short, ATD listens for spikes in noise frequencies. As soon as ATD is installed, it begins listening to learn what constitutes a normal noise frequency wherever it is placed. This helps to ensure accuracy whether you are monitoring a busy city street or a quiet campus. When a gunshot or other detectable danger with a higher-than-normal noise frequency is heard by the sensor, you’ll be alerted in real-time.

Does the sensor detect human voices?

The sensor can detect elevated human voices (yelling, screaming, etc.) that are loud enough to fall outside of the noise frequency detected during normal times.

Does the sensor ‘listen’ all of the time?

Sensors listen to the sound of their environment continuously so they can identify anomalies in the expected noise frequency. However, they do not record all of the time. This preserves people’s right to privacy.

How many sensors do I need?

It depends on the layout and size of the area being covered. We’ll customize a solution to meet your needs.

Is there a minimum number of sensors required for installation?

There are no minimums! We work with establishments of all sizes. Use as many or as few ATD sensors as needed to ensure no threat on your premises goes undetected.


Has AcoustiSense technology been tested?

Our AcoustiSense technology that fuels ATD has been used to protect global military troops in combat for the last 25 years. The technology has evolved through the years, and now we are introducing it to the civilian arena.


What does it cost?

Where do you put it?

ATD can be mounted just about anywhere. Walls and light poles are a couple of common examples, but ATD can adapt to any location thanks to flexible mounting options.
