Host of Supercharged Stocks, Andrew O’Donnell and First Responder Technologies’ CEO, Robert Delamar talk about technology, privacy concerns and smarter homes.
They talk about IP and the breakthrough in using Wi-Fi to detect concealed weapons, how this solution can provide 20-30 seconds of vital time to inform and prevent an attack happening, lock doors, send out alerts.
With more and more people working from home it will be interesting to see how security in residential properties evolve, something that First Responder Technologies is developing solutions for.
Robert discusses the word ‘surveil’
“Surveil is good word, we’re also seeing some unprecedented imposition on our freedom and nobody wants to live in a surveillance state and so the real question becomes how can you balance these things. Ultimately we’ve built a system that doesn’t collect personal identifying information and looks for objects in the context of an RF field, so those radio signatures are really what we’re measuring and we use AI, of course to tell us that this is probably a threat to do something about them.”
Robert goes on to say
” It’s a balance between safety. There’s somebody with a concealed weapon on your premises and and at the same time protecting civil liberties is important part of our value proposition – something I cared deeply about I personally don’t want to live in this surveillance state but at the same time we’ve got an unprecedented circumstance here and the times are going to call for solutions so I hope companies like ours can fill that gap where we’re respectful of privacy at the same time providing that new layer of security”
