systems via contact closure (Hawk AP) or wirelessly via IP integration (Hawk IP).
The innovator in affordably priced gunshot detection solutions debuted its Hawk Outdoor Gunshot Detection Sensor at ISC West 2019. Hawk extends the detection capabilities and cost-effectiveness of Shot Tracer’s gunshot detection solutions to exterior locations.
Upon detection of a gunshot, Hawk AP immediately sends a contact closure alert to the facility’s alarm panel indicating whether it was a single or multiple gunshot event. Hawk IP sends alerts of detected gunshots’ time, location and number of shots fired over Verizon (USA) or Vodafone (Global) wireless services to user-designated individuals including the local police and medical facilities. This eliminates the need for any additional external monitoring services. A PAN Wireless option is also available to pair Hawk IP sensors with other wireless sensors.
By automatically detecting and pushing notifications of gunshot activity from the instant an incident begins to unfold, Hawk empowers security personnel and first responders to best manage active shooter situations before a facility is breached. Hawk is as easy to install as a smoke detector with analog and IP configurations available to integrate with virtually any security system available. Hawk integrates with security, alarm, surveillance and access

Said Allan Overcast, CEO and President of Shot Tracer Technologies, “Every second counts in an active shooter situation and Hawk’s ability to detect gunshots from outdoor locations in real-time allows security and personnel to react to unfolding active shooter situations before an assailant enters a facility.” Shot Tracer Hawk Outdoor Gunshot Detection Sensor will be available June 1, 2019. sst
