INDIANAPOLIS and PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 10, 2023 – Watchmen Security, a leading provider of comprehensive security solutions in Central Indiana, and ZeroEyes, the creators of the only AI-based gun detection video analytics platform that holds the U.S. Department of Homeland Security SAFETY Act Designation, today announced a strategic partnership to advance community safety and security across Indiana.
Through the partnership, Watchmen Security will integrate ZeroEyes' proactive AI-based gun detection and intelligent situational awareness solution into the services offered to customers through its One Watch program, creating an even higher level of protection for subscribers and bolstering the safety and well-being of communities it serves.
Austin Smith, CEO of Watchmen Security, expressed his enthusiasm for the partnership: "ZeroEyes' groundbreaking gun detection technology dramatically changes the conversation around community safety and security from one focused on investigation of incidents after the fact to one centered on prevention.
By giving us the ability to proactively identify firearm threats in real-time, ZeroEyes empowers us to stay one step ahead of them. Businesses, schools, hospitals, community centers, residents—together, we can set a new standard of safety in our communities.”
ZeroEyes' AI gun detection and intelligent situational awareness software is layered on a subscriber’s existing digital security cameras. If a gun is identified, images are instantly shared with the ZeroEyes Operations Center (ZOC), staffed 24/7/365 by specially trained U.S. military and law enforcement veterans. If these experts determine the threat is valid, they dispatch alerts and actionable intelligence, including visual description, gun type, and last known location, to local staff and first responders in as fast as 3 to 5 seconds from detection.
“We applaud Watchmen Security’s commitment to creating a safe and secure environment for Indiana businesses and communities,” said Mike Lahiff, ZeroEyes co-founder and CEO. “As violent crime continues to plague this country, we are proud to partner with companies that are determined to protect citizens and prevent loss of life.”
At the core of Watchmen Security's mission lies an unwavering commitment to forging safe, secure, and interconnected environments for its valued customers. With a vision and service offerings much greater in scope than traditional security services, Watchmen Security is dedicated to increasing safety for customers and safeguarding the spaces and places where its customers live, work, and play.
The company's approach goes beyond mere security provision; it embodies a team of dedicated professionals who are wholeheartedly committed to preserving lives, safeguarding property, and fostering resilient and tightly knit communities.
