Frequently Asked Questions

Got questions? We have the answers!

What is acoustic shot detection?

Acoustic shot detection is a technology that uses sound sensors or microphones to detect and identify the acoustic signature of gunshots or gunfire. Sensors operate on the principle that firearms discharge generates distinctive sound patterns, including the supersonic shockwave (muzzle blast) and the sonic crack of a bullet as it travels through the air.

Acoustic shot detection systems are commonly used in urban areas, campuses, public spaces and high-security facilities to enhance public safety and aid in the rapid response to gun-related incidents.  Shot detection plays a critical role in reducing response times, which can be crucial in saving lives and preventing further violence.

How precise is SHOTPOINT’s localization?

Outdoors, SHOTPOINT is accurate within 2 meters or less. Indoors, SHOTPOINT’s precision is regularly less than 1 meter.

Where does SHOTPOINT work?

SHOTPOINT is the only system that works indoors, outdoors and vertically. All events are tracked through one platform, eliminating the need for multiple integration solutions. We are effective in high-noise environments, such as on the Fremont Street Experience in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Do Databuoy’s services integrate with mass notification systems?

Yes. We currently integrate with several providers and can be integrated with system-based API’s as needed.

How are security personnel notified of an event?

Databuoy integrates with mass notification systems. Databuoy also has a proprietary web-based application called KWIC, where web and sms subscribers can be notified of an active event.

What is vertical shot detection?

Vertical shot detection is the ability to detect a gunshot originating from an elevated location, even if the shot occurs outside and passes near or through the coverage network.
