Micro-Geofence Location on Digitized Floorplans

RapidSOS is being utilized by 90% of 911 centers for the U.S. population and growing each day!

When placing a 911 call via landline or cellular device within a 911inform connected building or geofenced area, it’ll generate an emergency notification within the 911inform software and sends it to all users.

After the emergency is initiated, you will receive accurate location information paired with an interactive geo-mapped building floor plan overlaid onto Google Earth.

This enables the emergency response team to locate and arrive at the emergency as quickly and safely as possible. 911inform is partnered with RapidSOS by integrating into the RapidSOS Clearinghouse.

Partnering with smartphone manufacturers and other IoT companies, we can pass fast and accurate location information with additional data to emergency call centers and first responders.

RapidSOS is FREE for public safety agencies and integrates into their existing software within a 911 center – including CAD, CPE, Map, and RapidSOS portal.


COMPLETE SOLUTION FOR CAMPUS, SCHOOL, ENTERPRISE SAFETY & COMPLIANCE

911Inform is a complete emergency event management solution that integrates with most of the companies in this space and the only emergency services solution provider that’s integrated into the PSAP (Public Safety Answering Points).

When an emergency strikes and 911 is dialed within a school, 911inform springs into action in just over one second.

Imagine police officers instantly gaining access to the system on their patrol cars and school administrators having it at their fingertips on their cell phones.

With a simple click, they can remotely activate and actually view school cameras and secure all doors, providing real-time information to law enforcement and ensuring a swift response.

The innovation doesn't stop there with some schools optioning facial recognition and license plate readers, bolstering security measures to safeguard school properties.

Visible weapons scanning technology adds another layer of protection, ensuring potential threats are detected and addressed promptly.

911Inform offers a comprehensive emergency response system for schools, focused on rapid and effective coordination during critical incidents. Such a system can greatly enhance the safety and security of students, staff, and the school property.

Here's an overview of the components and technologies involved:

1. Immediate 911 Integration: When someone dials 911 within a school, the system should automatically trigger an alert to local emergency services, such as the police, fire, and medical responders. Quick notification ensures that responders are informed promptly, reducing response time.

2. Access for Law Enforcement and Administrators: Police officers and school administrators can access the emergency response system through mobile apps on their patrol cars and smartphones. This allows them to stay updated in real-time and coordinate their responses effectively.

3. Remote Activation of School Cameras and Door Security: Integrating with the school's surveillance system, the emergency response system can remotely activate all available cameras. The system can also control door access systems, securing all doors to prevent unauthorized entry during an emergency. Real-time camera feeds provide valuable information to law enforcement about the situation inside the school.

4. Facial Recognition and License Plate Readers: Some schools may choose to enhance security by implementing facial recognition technology at entrances and license plate readers in parking lots. These technologies can help identify potential threats or unauthorized individuals attempting to enter the premises.

5. Visible Weapons Scanning Technology: Visible weapons scanning technology can be deployed at entry points or within school premises. It's designed to detect weapons, such as firearms or knives, and trigger alarms or notifications when a potential threat is identified. This technology adds an extra layer of security by identifying and addressing threats promptly.

6. Integration and Coordination: The effectiveness of such a system depends on seamless integration of various components, including alarm systems, surveillance cameras, access control, and emergency communication systems. A central control center or dashboard allows for easy coordination and monitoring of all security measures.

7. Training and Protocols: Training programs and emergency response protocols should be established for school staff, administrators, and law enforcement to ensure everyone knows how to use the system effectively during emergencies.

8. Privacy and Legal Considerations: It's crucial to address privacy concerns and comply with relevant laws and regulations, particularly when implementing technologies like facial recognition and license plate readers.

This comprehensive approach to school security aims to minimize response times, increase situational awareness, and deter potential threats through advanced technology while respecting privacy and legal standards.

Regular drills and testing of the system can help ensure its effectiveness during actual emergencies. 


FEATURES & FUNCTIONALITY

Today’s evolving enterprise environments are easily enabled with communications that can now take place from almost anywhere and on any device.

Enterprise users working from home and office will likely cross the invisible boundaries of 9-1-1 call centers without being aware.

911inform Location Discovery Solution (LDS) easily allows users to update their physical location without having to do more than tap their smartphone screen or a few clicks from your laptop.

As working from home becomes more popular, user mobility is of utmost importance. In addition, a user with a desk phone at the office may also work remotely via laptop and softphone.

The user is now active in two separate locations, where both are tethered to the same phone number and extension. Thus, the user’s location information has not updated, so a 9-1-1 call would be routed to the PSAP that covers their work location, delaying response times.

PRESS RELEASE for September 27, 2023

911inform announces new security integrations to its platform, increasing security measures for school and public safety

Security platform adds facial recognition, license plate recognition, weapons/object detection and radio to its existing 200+ technology integrations

WALL, N.J. 911inform, the only notification and security management platform, is proud to announce the integration of essential security upgrades to its platform, prioritizing public and school safety. With a focus on advancing emergency response capabilities, four new integrations have been introduced, complementing the existing suite of 200+ features.

These additions include radio communications, facial recognition, license plate recognition and weapons and object detection, all aimed at providing instant notifications and enhanced tracking within the platform:

Radio Communications: Emergency announcements are simultaneously broadcasted on personnel’s existing two-way radios and pushed through the platform to mobile phones, ensuring staff and students not currently in a school building are properly notified of an event.

Facial Recognition: Used to identify human faces in images and videos through detection, analysis and recognition. This can prevent an incident by notifying security when a specific individual enters a building. Ideal for high-conflict situations like domestic disputes or a problematic former employee.

License Plate Recognition: Using a client’s existing cameras, license plates are captured and analyzed for security and surveillance purposes. This can be used to prevent an incident by screening plates at a building or specific location.

911inform’s platform delivers immediate response to emergencies with an all-encompassing emergency toolkit including precise caller location identification, connected building controls, and a detailed notification system to save valuable time in an emergency event.

911inform’s technology is currently deployed across 50 states and in more than 5,200 buildings and schools. The platform is available to schools, universities, public organizations, and businesses in a wide range of industries including public municipalities, medical facilities, places of worship, sporting events, hotels, and restaurants.

“At 911inform, our mission is to solve security challenges, and these new integrations are game-changers for the public safety and the protection of children in schools nationwide,” said Ivo Allen, CEO of 911inform. “We are committed to continually developing our platform to safeguard those we serve and save lives. As we adapt and expand our offerings, we aim to support first responders and make a meaningful impact.”

911inform holds seven federal and state security certifications that bolster its standing as the leader in security management, including SOC 2 Type 2, ISO 27001, FedRAMP and the National Institute of Standards and Technology Cybersecurity Framework.

Most recently, the company won the Frost & Sullivan Award for Best Practices in Safety Solutions Product Innovation, for the third year in a row.

GUNSHOT DETECTION

Shooter Detection Systems empowers communities, workplaces to deploy gunshot detection to increase safety. SDS was created to assist in reducing the growing threat from indoor shooting incidents.

Schools, malls, airports, government and private buildings have all experienced increased shooting incidents over the last few years. In many of these cases, the delay in the time it took to accurately report and locate the shooter has lead to unfortunate consequences.

The SDS Indoor Gunshot Detection System simultaneously detects gunfire and relays this information via a floor plan map, text and email with shot location. System/Sensor maintenance alerts can also be programmed to go to specific individuals via text and email.

Additional modules can be configured to automate security and notification systems such as building alarms, lights/strobes, video, access control, computer-aided police dispatch (CAD), etc.

Guardian sensors can be installed into existing building infrastructure through a flush wall/ceiling or surface mount for impenetrable structures.

Guardian’s core technology was developed in conjunction with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and by a major defense contractor who has deployed over 10,000 military-grade gunshot detection systems to Iraq, Afghanistan and around the globe.

These systems have saved many American and NATO Soldier’s lives. This same capability is now available to the commercial market through SDS and the system configuration is fully scalable to the area of desired coverage.
