Howard Technology Solutions Partners with Omnilert to Bring Active Shooter Capabilities to its Customer Base

Omnilert's Active Shooter Solutions provides early detection of critical threats combined with a rapid automated response within seconds of a verified gun detection

Ellisville, MS – August 25, 2022 – Howard Technology Solutions (HTS), a leading manufacturer and reseller of custom computers, servers, self-service kiosks, mobility carts, and related technologies, announced that it will begin reselling Omnilert’s AI-powered Active Shooter Solution to help its customers effectively deal with today’s rising gun violence.  The Omnilert solution is the most effective visual gun detection solution on the market that can save lives through the unique combination of early visual detection, mass communication and automated response.

Statistics show that from 2022-2021 there has been a 50% increase in active shooter incidents. In addition, there are an estimated 70-80 million surveillance cameras in place in organizations, yet only 1% of that surveillance video is watched live. Omnilert’s AI-powered visual Gun Detect Software leverages a company’s existing security cameras to create a widely deployable early gun detection solution that is monitoring 24/7. Once a gun is detected and verified, emergency response plans and systems are automatically activated at the touch of a button to maximize every critical second and save lives.

“The safety and peace of mind the technology from Omnilert provides was a crucial factor in HTS’s decision to begin providing this solution to our customers,” said David Perkins, Executive Vice President of Sales at HTS. “Our customers are our number one priority and offering them top-of-the-line technology solutions that help protect their organizations is imperative.”

“With the rising number of active shooter situations, companies are looking for technologies that can keep their employees and customers safe and HTS is meeting this need by providing the Omnilert solution,” said Dave Fraser, CEO of Omnilert. “According to the FBI, most active shooting incidents are over within five minutes and the ability to detect an active shooter and activate an emergency response plan in mere seconds has the potential to save many lives.”
