Omnilert Integrates its AI Visual Gun Detection Technology with Hanwha Vision’s Wisenet WAVE VMS to Deliver Active Shooter Protection


Omnilert Gun Detect leads the industry as the only solution that goes beyond detection and verification to include a full, robust response and notification 

LEESBURG, VA – June 18, 2024 – Omnilert, a leader in active shooter solutions, today announced that it has integrated Omnilert Gun Detect with the Hanwha Vision Wisenet WAVE video management software (VMS) to provide a complete solution for gun violence and active shooters that can help saves lives in the event a gunman comes onto a customers’ facilities. Wisenet WAVE VMS is a software platform for IP video surveillance applications that detects, streams, records, and analyzes live video from connected IP cameras and networked video sources. By integrating with Omnilert Gun Detect, the Wisenet WAVE platform now has the ability to rapidly respond to detected weapons in a fraction of a second, and once verified, activate a complete and robust response that could include locking doors, notifying police, sending alerts and providing situational intelligence throughout the entire event.
“The integration of Omnilert Gun Detect with Wisenet Wave VMS will bolster the security we can provide our joint customers to protect against the growing threat of active shooters and gun violence, which is at an all-time high in the U.S.,” said Nick Gustavsson, CTO and Co-Founder at Omnilert. “This means that video feeds already being managed in the WAVE platform can now be monitored 24/7 for weapons, allowing for a proactive response before shots are fired.”
“Omnilert’s gun detection platform provides especially strong gun detection analytics as well as one of the most flexible and powerful alerting systems on the market,” said Mark Heintzman, Technical Partnership Manager at Hanwha. 

Omnilert Gun Detect’s end-to-end workflow of detection, activation, and notification allows for an automated initiation of an organization’s active shooter response, with 24/7 monitoring and local first responder escalation, integrated notification, and integration into Wisenet WAVE. The integration enables selectable bookmarking and/or event triggering in response to a gun detection within Wisenet WAVE. The Gun Detect events can trigger multiple operations within WAVE such as sending notifications and displaying on the Alarm layout. Additionally, Omnilert will automatically configure the camera set up, including IP address, camera name and location, which will help speed deployment of Omnilert’s active shooter solution.
