ReconMobile App Suite Increases Situational Awareness, Takes Physical Security Out to the Edge

Austin, TEXAS – Aug. 21, 2019ReconaSense, a leading provider of innovative physical security intelligence and next-gen access control, today announced the debut of its ReconMobile command-and-control center that lets users lock down facilities, tap into video surveillance systems, and/or report and respond to an emergency from a mobile device.

Managing a large campus or facility means being in charge of a myriad of systems, dynamic populations, and countless points of entry. Lack of reliable data about any of those can lead to expensive, time-consuming problems, if not life-threatening situations.

The ReconMobile app suite enables security teams to “see” and take action across multiple facilities without having to be stationed at a security desk behind a monitor. This ensures better decision-making, shorter response times, and improved outcomes — whether in an active shooter situation, an urgent life safety matter, or another critical security condition.

ReconMobile works on iOS and Android tablets, smartphones, and smart watches, empowering teams on the ground to respond and react faster, and engage their community and the people they protect more easily. The solution also allows employees and students to notify staff and security when they need help or an emergency situation arises.

“Situational awareness is a critical success factor in any large, complex security operation,” said Clayton Brown, executive vice president, ReconaSense. “That success depends on systems that speak a common language, and people to feed those systems with data that sensors can’t capture. The ReconMobile app suite offers command-and-control capabilities and crowdsourced inputs that are the force-multiplier and glue between security operators and data.”

ReconMobile features include:

  • WatchCommander: Use the wearable iWatch application to initiate lockdown or respond to a threat as quickly as it is observed.
  • EmergenSEE: Share surveillance data with first responders to hasten and improve response times while protecting individual privacy during standard operations.
  • See Something, Say Something: Empower staff to centrally manage incoming reports of suspicious activities or situations as well as initiate emergency responses, so no early warnings are ignored.
  • MobileMuster: Send security response requests to employees, students, and staff so they can provide safe/not safe updates and GPS locations in real time during an incident.
  • MobileSOS: Enable employees and students to report a safety issue or emergency to security teams or 911 with the touch of a button.
  • Operational Response and Command Applications (ORCA): Provide teams on the ground with on-the-go situational awareness and control.

ReconaSense will feature demos of its ReconMobile app suite at the Global Security Exchange (GSX) conference in Chicago, Sept. 8-12, in Booth 2024.

In addition, executive vice president Clayton Brown will participate in two panel discussions at the show:

Proactive Security for Active Shooter Situations

By | News

Active shooters and getting proactive about campus security continues to be a major concern and schools are looking for ways to combat this complex issue. In a recent article from ReconaSense co-founder Clayton Brown, he discusses how having a proactive and risk-adaptive security strategy just might be the solution.

Through advanced video analytics and other technology stacks that provide visibility into the events as they happen, campuses have improved their ability to get eyes on active shooter situations. And while they are important elements of campus security, they only allow for security teams to react as the event is happening or after the event occurred. They do little, if anything, to predict or warn of a potential threat.

Learn how combining these technologies with an AI-powered, risk-adaptive, and intelligent security system opens up a sixth sense, allowing a security team to act proactively rather than reactively to the situation through features such as:

  • Real-time, actionable security alerts
  • Automatic lock-downs
  • Automatic notifications to authorities of a dangerous suspect

You’ll gain further insights on how the following can help prevent a campus security crisis:

  • Keeping the human in-the-loop
  • Working together as a community
  • Building lockdown with one-touch
  • Intelligent access control
  • Actionable guidance with security technology
