Tyco Security Products Launches Shooter Detection System Integration

Tyco Security Products, a 2016 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Winner, has today announced that Software House C•CURE 9000, the access-control powerhouse, now integrates with Guardian Indoor Active Shooter Detection System by Shooter Detection Systems, the world leader in gunshot detection technology.

The nation’s top 500 enterprise security executives surveyed named the Active Shooter as this year’s top security threat facing their enterprise.


This highly anticipated integration complements Tyco Security Product’s offerings with an industry-leading solution to accurately detect gunshots and provide precise location information to first responders and security professionals within a second of the first shot, without the need for human interpretation.

In an active shooter event where every second counts, the Guardian Indoor Active Shooter Detection System combines an acoustic gunshot identification software with infrared camera gunfire flash detection.

When combined with powerful C•CURE 9000 event management and access monitoring features, the system provides the ability for instant shot location information, lock down procedures, live and recorded video from cameras in the incident related areas, and provides immediate notification to first responders through C•CURE 9000’s event action and integrated notification platforms while alerting monitoring facilities around the globe.

“We are pleased to be able to add this mission critical solution to the portfolio of integrations coming through Tyco Security Product’s Connected Partner Program,” said Scott McNulty, Senior Product Manager, TSP Connected Partner Program.

“This integration fully aligns with our vision to offer our customers best-in-class technologies in security products.”

“SDS is proud to add C•CURE 9000 to our growing library of technology integrations,” said Shooter Detection Systems’ CEO Christian Connors.

“By combining our indoor gunshot detection system with access control, customers can potentially manage where the shooter can move by locking down a lobby, hallway, or other access point, and use the same logic to safely evacuate employees away from the shooter.”

The powerful combination of C•CURE 9000 and Guardian gunshot detection reduces the margins of human error, ensuring that there are no costly false alerts while enhancing the overall security of any school, business or public venue building.

How Guardian Gunshot Detection Works

The Guardian sensors both “see” and “hear” those events, process the information and declare a shot alert with certainty to the user.

The customizable software embedded in the Guardian solution monitors the Guardian sensors and provides audio and visually relevant alerts, as well as SMS and email notifications for shot alerts and system maintenance warnings to building occupants, emergency personnel and/or local law enforcement.

The Guardian solution was designed to be compatible with current security systems, closed circuit surveillance cameras and automated alerting systems.
