Athena Security Launches COVID Occupancy Tracking And Concealed Gun Detection To Increase Public Health And Safety

AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Athena Security today announces two major product launches for its smart security camera line up focused on mitigating gun violence and the spread of COVID. On the gun detection side, Athena Security's A.I. thermal camera software is able to spot concealed weapons and instantly alert authorities. On the occupancy tracking side, Athena Security has added sensors (no cameras needed) that can be placed in every room to accurately track how many people are in the building or in individual rooms to avoid COVID overcrowding issues while maintaining privacy.

"With gun safety and COVID protections becoming so politicized, Athena Security is focused on automating public safety."

"We are constantly innovating both on the gun detection and COVID prevention sides to increase our customer's ability to stop the spread of COVID and the misuse of guns throughout society," stated Lisa Falzone, Athena Security CEO and co-founder. "With gun safety and COVID protections becoming so politicized, Athena Security is focused on automating public safeguards so that our schools, hospitals, places of worship and business are as secure as possible."

Realizing The Potential Of A.I. Thermal Cameras
When Athena Security co-founders Lisa Falzone and Chris Ciabarra came out of early retirement to put an end to mass shootings in 2018, little did they know at the time they were also ramping up to help fight the spread of COVID. "Especially after the birth of my second child, the drive to make the world a safer place was an unavoidable motivation for me," said Falzone. "The part that Chris and I had not bet on was the flexibility and utilitarian nature of our A.I. thermal camera platform. Its uses for social good, along with our commitment to the ethical use of A.I. banning all instances of personal information collection, is proving far greater than we initially hoped for."

All over the world, Athena Security's A.I. thermal cameras are pre-screening individuals for elevated temperatures and weapons prior to entering busy airports, government buildings, prisons, courthouses, libraries as well as Fortune 500 corporations. With the ability to send automatic alerts to operators, Athena's platform offloads critical staffing requirements to manually take temperatures while securing buildings from illegal weapons.
