Vicon Industries, Inc. and Omnilert announced the integration of Valerus VMS with Omnilert's AI visual gun detection system. With this powerful integration, Valerus users can now connect Omnilert Gun Detect to instantly trigger an alarm in Valerus when a firearm is detected by the AI in live video feeds, which then sets off a series of pre-planned responses once the threat is verified. Omnilert Gun Detect AI software leverages Vicon cameras to create an early gun detection solution.

In fractions of a second, the software can identify a gun threat and send an alert to Valerus operators. Once verified, an immediate response can be initiated within Valerus. If using Vicon's Access Control Solution, VAX, this could include a range of automations for seamless, instantaneous responses, such as alerting administrators and automatically locking doors.
