AmberBox’s 3rd generation gunshot detection technology overcomes the key problems with legacy products. These systems either have false alarm issues or require a line of sight to the shooter, requiring lots of high cost sensors to have adequate coverage. The unique 3rd generation technology is without false alarm issues or a line of sight requirement, making effective coverage possible.

AmberBox is manufacturer agnostic, allowing you the flexibility to integrate with almost any security system currently installed. AmberBox can integrate with a wide variety of security products, including:

  • Access Control - Lockdown zones of a building in the event of an active shooter
  • Video management systems - Automatically display the key camera feeds close to the gunshot
  • Mass notification - send a message with exact incident information to your entire organization

Learn more about how your existing systems are integrated to AmberBox in the white paper.
