When an armed suspect enters a university, place of worship, hospital or a public or private space, it requires immediate action to ensure the safety and well-being of all as every second matters. Avigilon’s Visible Firearm Detection (VFD) analytics helps reduce security threats by detecting people with drawn firearms. Using cloud-enhanced AI analytics, VFD detects brandished firearms and alerts operators for verification and action. Streamline responses by integrating VFD with Motorola Solutions’ ecosystem such as Avigilon Decision Management System (DMS), Rave Collaborate and Orchestrate.

Top three reasons to choose VFD:

  1. Powerful AI proactively helps to detect brandished firearms and alerts operators for immediate verification and action.
  2. Integrate with Motorola Solutions’ technology ecosystem to enable quick responses during emergencies.
  3. Reduce false alerts with an additional layer of verification by an operator to ensure that any false alerts are evaluated and dismissed.
