No single technology on its own can provide the complete answer to the complex needs of public safety.  We have engineered a platform designed help K-12 schools address gun violence at outdoor sports facilities, parking lots, and connecting walkways. Our unique bundled solution combines visual gun identification, audible gunshot detection, emergency calling and audio paging speakers in our signature CB 1-s Help Point®.  All these features are delivered via cellular connection by our Nebula cloud platform.

Our Blue Alert Overwatch® system delivers Code Blue’s well-known emergency calling and audio paging solutions in a package that also includes advanced analytics to help detect and prevent gun violence in places where all of these capabilities deliver value in a single package.  Outdoor sporting events and connected parking areas are examples where the need for these features has been growing.  Working together, the capabilities of this system provide schools and property owners a variety of notification and communications options that can be tailored to a site’s specific needs.  Talk to your Code Blue sales representative today to learn how the features of this machine-learning enhanced system can improve layered security plans at your location.
