Shaving Minutes, Saving Lives: Enhancing Active Shooter Response with PortNexus and Hanwha Wisenet Wave

Key Features:

  • Automated Realtime Situational Awareness
  • Threat Assessment and Management
  • Preserve key video system evidence off-site
  • Obsolescence Proofed
  • Benefits:

  • Maintain video data integrity during defined retention periods
  • Simplify large system backup and recovery
  • Endless scalability for growth with your organization
  • Optimized for Wisenet WAVE video management software
  • Problem Addressed:

    In today's security landscape, rapid and effective response to critical incidents, such as active shooter situations, is crucial. Traditional surveillance systems often struggle with real-time management because manually isolating camera feeds is time-consuming. This limitation means that these systems are more useful for post-event analysis rather than providing situational awareness during an incident. During real-time events, having to manually manage processes can conflict with training and distract responders, leading to less efficient responses.

    A Better Way:

    The PortNexus Active Shooter Early Warning System revolutionizes incident response by establishing two-way visual and audio communication, providing real-time situational awareness, and broadcasting critical information to the entire First Responder team. It shares exact locations, visual details, and optimal routes to the target while leveraging smartphones for broader perspectives and real-time communication. Additionally, it can distract the shooter, inform others, and help manage the scene in real-time as the event unfolds, ensuring a safer and more coordinated response.

    Adding 360+ Vision:

    Integrating Hanwha Wisenet Wave to manage existing cameras based on their proximity to the PortNexus system significantly broadens the field of vision for the Dispatcher Command Center. This powerful combination eliminates confusion and wasted time by automatically localizing and presenting the four nearest cameras, displaying their feed live to the first responders in control of the event. It enables dispatchers to zoom in, see around corners, and maintain a comprehensive, detailed understanding of the situation, utilizing existing cameras to provide a broader view of the area. This game-changing integration simplifies and revolutionizes threat management, making it more efficient and effective than ever before.

    Shaving Minutes Saving Lives:

    First Responders can quickly verify threats, removing misinformation and confusion. They get real-time guidance, reaching targets faster and safer. This robust solution extends to smartphones and laptops, keeping everyone in sync and allowing the command center to lead effectively, ensuring coordinated responses.

    How It Works:

    PortNexus Wall Alarm: The Central Trigger

    The PortNexus Wall Alarm™ is a powerful Active Shooter Early Warning system and an all-in-one device (computer, telecom, camera, speaker, and microphone). Upon activation, it provides live situational awareness, broadcasting visual and audio feeds to the Sight Desk™ in dispatch centers. It enables immediate threat assessment and communication between room occupants and First Responders. Simultaneously, it alerts the SRO and police on their phones with the exact location and critical details, enhancing safety and reducing response time.

    Integration with Wisenet Wave

    By integrating Hanwha's Wisenet Wave, the PortNexus system significantly enhances situational awareness and response efficiency. Upon activation, the system instantly brings the four nearest cameras into view, leveraging Wisenet Wave's robust video management capabilities. The PortNexus Wall Alarm uses the IP addresses of these cameras, recorded in its memory, to transmit live feeds to the SightDesk when triggered. This seamless integration eliminates the need for dispatchers to manually find cameras under stress, saving precious seconds. With Wisenet Wave, dispatchers can manage and respond to incidents more effectively, ensuring a rapid and coordinated response. This integration not only streamlines operations but also underscores the critical role of Wisenet Wave in modern security solutions.
