Bosch’s new Gun Detection System combines video and audio AI in a multi-layered approach for proactive school security and offers a cost-effective, minimally invasive approach.

As Bosch Security introduced in CES 2024, the Gun Detection System operates on a layered approach and employs visual and audio AI to respond to potential threats proactively. This dual-layered system quickly detects gun-carrying individuals through visual cues and identifies gunshots with audio AI, ensuring a quick and appropriate response.

According to Interesting Engineering, the Gun Detection System functions independently but integrates seamlessly with other security systems, including video, access control, and public address, allowing for diverse responses like human verification, door locking, automated public address announcements, and smart lockdown and evacuation protocols.

The Gun Detection System is meant to be installed strategically at entrances and high traffic points and provides early warnings while maintaining a near invisible discreet appearance, fostering a welcoming learning environment.

Beyond gun detection, the Gun Detection System offers many different benefits, from early and fast detection to privacy protection. The AI processing ensuring data privacy, cost-effectiveness and ease of installation all make the system appealing for schools. The Gun Detection System also complements other smart cameras thus enhancing overall building security and operational efficiency.

Bosch’s commitment to the Power to Predict emphasizes its dedication to providing proactive and informed solutions. The Gun Detection System greatly aligned with this principle, enabling and empowering educational institutions to create a safer learning environment, minimizing risks and potential damages.

As part of CES 2024, the Gun Detection System has gained notable recognition, securing prestigious awards like the Innovation Awards Best of Innovation Honoree in the AI category and an Innovation Awards Honoree in the Human Security for All category. These underscore the system’s potential to revolutionize security practices in educational settings.
