Databuoy Corporation has announced that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has granted Safety Act Designation Protections for their ShotPoint shooter localization system. The SAFETY (Support Anti-Terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies) designation extends DHS liability protection for ShotPoint customers with regard to claims related to or resulting from acts of terrorism where ShotPoint has been deployed.
ShotPoint is a unique sensor system that provides reliable shooter detection and localization coverage for both indoor and outdoor areas. ShotPoint automatically transmits alerts to access control systems, camera systems, notification applications and other subscribers within a second of shooter detection. This effectively removes the uncertainty about whom and where the shooters are, and instantly sets the response in motion with information that is critical to saving lives. Databuoy is committed to providing the most effective and reliable shooter detection and localization product available.
The SAFETY Act provides important legal liability protections for providers of qualified anti-terrorism technologies. Its goal is to encourage the development and deployment of effective anti-terrorism products and services by providing protection against liability. According to Databuoy president, Kathleen Griggs, “Receiving this designation is a great step for ShotPoint. It means that the DHS stands behind our system. They’ve gone through a detailed review and validated that ShotPoint is a potentially life-saving technology.”
ShotPoint can provide both indoor and outdoor area protection for private and public spaces including educational institutions, government facilities, retail establishments, parks and stadiums. “Most businesses view an active shooter as their top threat.” says Ms. Griggs, “Now with the SAFETY Act designation, those businesses can look to ShotPoint as a solution to effectively managing this threat.”
