Defendry’s 24/7 human monitoring team would immediately inform police of the situation so that they know what’s happening and can respond accordingly.
Defendry’s gun, mask, & intruder detection capabilities are rigorously trained to ignore a person’s race, clothing, height, weight, and all other identifying marks so that only visible guns held in a human’s hand, masks worn on a human’s head, and the shape of a human in a place that they are not supposed to be are reported.

The fastest armed response to an active shooter event will always come from an armed guard on site. Defendry helps armed guards and security teams do their job better by providing them with a detected active shooter’s image(s), location, and description of weapon(s). Guards also immediately receive emergency support from a dedicated 24/7 human verification agent to help them resolve the situation as intelligently and efficiently as possible.
