Video Feature: See how Battelle's SiteGuard Active Shooter Response can save lives in the first critical minutes of a shooting.

Battelle SiteGuard® Active Shooter Response


Battelle’s SiteGuard® Active Shooter Response (ASR) is designed to save lives by detecting, locating and responding to gunfire – automatically – to reduce response time in the first critical and chaotic minutes of an incident.

From the first gunshot until police intervention, SiteGuard ASR automates and accelerates 911 calls and notifications, triggers building lockdown and evacuation procedures and denies or delays shooter access to additional victims, all while simultaneously providing valuable information to first responders to improve their response and increase victim and officer safety.
