Brivo integrates ZeroEyes' AI platform to inhibit gun-related violence

May 17, 2022
ZeroEyes' AI-based human-verified gun detection platform is now integrated into the Brivo Access system, allowing users to lock doors remotely when an active shooter is present.

Brivo, a provider of cloud-based access control and smart building technologies, on May 12 announced an integration with ZeroEyes, an AI-based gun detection platform.

"Improving safety has always been our north star at Brivo," said Steve Van Till, founder and CEO of Brivo. "Combining our cloud-based access control solution with ZeroEyes gun detection closely aligns with Brivo's mission to make the world a safer place, and demonstrates how vital access control is in today's world."

The new platform integration seamlessly combines Brivo Access system with ZeroEyes' AI-based gun detection capabilities by automatically locking entryways remotely as soon as a firearm is detected onsite.

The partnership also serves to inform first-responder decisions by providing them with near-real time information, including where the shooter is located, what the shooter looks like, and which entryways have been locked.

The partners note that, since the Columbine High massacre in 1999, nearly 300,000 students have experienced gun violence at school, and at least 2,000 people have been killed or injured in mass shootings in the U.S. The Brivo-ZeroEyes integration seeks to empower clients to activate secure barriers between shooters and their target, adding a crucial layer of security during active shooter situations.

When a gun is identified by ZeroEyes' gun detection algorithm and verified by the company's team of military veterans, who monitor detections 24/7/365, customer administrators and first responders are notified through ZeroEyes' software application. From there, administrators can leverage the Brivo Access system to lock entryways as needed, and first responders can make informed decisions about their strategy.

"As the U.S. grapples with record numbers of shootings year after year in schools, businesses and other government spaces, ZeroEyes is on a mission to utilize proactive solutions to save as many lives as possible in active shooter situations," said Mike Lahiff, CEO and co-founder of ZeroEyes. "Partnering with Brivo allows us to do just that, and strengthens our overall offering by giving customers the ability to instantly lock doors remotely when a weapon is detected onsite. With the combination of ZeroEyes AI gun detection software and Brivo's cloud-based door access control, the customer's security decision makers can radically improve their ability to protect against gun violence before the first shot is fired, a vital step in saving time and saving lives."

Brivo last year entered into a definitive merger agreement with Crown PropTech Acquisitions (NYSE: CPTK).
