Smarter Security, Patriot One and ReconaSense Join Forces to Address Active Shooter Threats
AI-Powered Weapons Detection and Entrance
Controls Adapt in Real Time as Situations Unfold
Smarter Security, the intelligent entrance controls company,
Patriot One Technologies Inc. (TSX:PAT) (OTCQX: PTOTF) (FRA: 0PL),
developer of the PATSCAN™ Multi-Sensor Covert Threat Detection
Platform, and ReconaSense, a next-gen physical security
intelligence and access control company, today announced an
integrated solution for covert weapons detection and automated
lockdown intended to detect and deter potential attacks, and save
more lives. The solution is being demonstrated at the International
Association of Chief of Police (IACP) Annual Conference & Expo,
Oct. 26-29 in Chicago.
FBI statistics released in April designated 27 shootings in 2018
as active shooter incidents, and 2019 has seen at least 21 mass
shootings prior to October 1. Responses to these threats have
included armed security guards, armed teachers, padlocked
entrances, metal detectors, bag x-ray systems, and mass
notification alert systems. However, the ability to detect and
delay active assailants’ progress into a building before they fire
a shot or inflict harm remains elusive.
The integration of Smarter Security FastlaneⓇ turnstiles and
Door Detectives® with the Patriot One PATSCAN Platform
leverages AI-powered technology to solve this problem. Seamless
integration with ReconaSense sensors speeds response times and
helps to quickly mitigate risk.
The PATSCAN Platform and its sensor components can be covertly
deployed to detect visible threats as well as concealed weapons on
a body or in a bag. Once detected, onsite security is notified
instantly via mobile phone, tablet, or desktop so they can respond
quickly and effectively to the situation.
Integrating the solution with Smarter Security and ReconaSense
takes it one step further. Once the PATSCAN Platform detects a
threat, Fastlane optical turnstiles and Door Detectives can be
locked down to bar entry to a potential attacker or contain them in
a specific area. The integrated solution can capture key details
about the location and individual, as well as provide real-time
video that is transmitted directly to security personnel and first
“Security teams continue to struggle with how to intelligently
automate the covert detection of imminent attacks without also
generating alarms for every laptop, smartphone, and metal water
bottle that comes through the door,” said Jeff Brown, CEO of
Smarter Security. “This collaboration offers a powerful, AI-driven
solution for active threat detection and automatic lockdown that
works in any space, reduces false alarms, and continues to learn
and adapt to situations in real time.”
Smarter Security’s high-security turnstiles have up to 6’ tall
glass barriers that are over half an inch thick, and tempered and
laminated for extra strength, with full length steel post hinges to
support them. They also combine a Toothed Locking Brake to make
breaking through this first line of defense extremely
How It Works
- When an overt or covertly carried weapon is detected on a
pedestrian, the system immediately locks down specific Fastlane
turnstile lanes and access-controlled doors protected by Door
Detectives or an integrated physical access control system.
- Customers determine if they want specific lanes or all lanes to
lock until the situation is remediated.
- Once remediated, the Fastlane turnstiles and doors unlock and
resume normal flow of traffic.
- Rest easier with extreme weapons detection accuracy.
- Provide streamlined pedestrian flow and eliminate redundant
queueing with intelligent optical turnstiles.
- Rapidly respond to threats with instant lockdown.
“Working with Smarter Security has been a terrific experience
for our Patriot One team. The mission of both companies is to
provide innovative, top-of-the-line security solutions to help
protect people and their communities,” said Martin Cronin, CEO and
President of Patriot One. “Integrating our PATSCAN Platform with
their state-of-the-art entry and the ReconaSense unification
platform takes us one step closer to stopping these horrific
tragedies before they take place.”
New York Showcase
Following the IACP Conference, the integrated solution will be
on demonstration at the Smarter Security Showroom on Fifth Avenue
in New York City.
