Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) May 21, 2013

Yardarm Technologies today announced Yardarm Safety First, new technology that gives connected gun owners the ability to remotely engage or disengage the trigger safety on any of their personal firearms from anywhere in the world. Yardarm is demonstrating a prototype of this new technology for the first time at the 2013 CTIA Conference in Las Vegas in the Machine-to-Machine (M2M) Zone with DataOnline® at booth #6040.

The Yardarm Safety First solution remotely connects gun owners to the Yardarm Sensor, which can be installed on any firearm to enable wireless, real-time control of the trigger safety, full motion detection, and geo-location tracking. Gun owners are immediately alerted via a mobile device applet if their firearm is picked up or handled by an unauthorized individual. Using the mobile app or secure website, the gun owner can instantly engage or disengage the trigger safety on the weapon upon motion sensing.

“Suppose you and your family are on vacation, and your firearm is back at home. Wouldn’t you want to know in real time if an intruder or worse, a child is handling your gun?” said Bob Stewart, CEO, Yardarm Technologies. “With Yardarm, you could immediately disable the firearm, notify local law enforcement, and maintain location awareness. We want the gun owner to stay connected to their firearm, no matter what the circumstance.”

Yardarm gives responsible gun owners unprecedented control of a firearm 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, from anywhere in the world. Key features include:

  •     Location Awareness – Know exactly where a firearm is at all times via a mobile app or secure website. In case of theft, law enforcement can be notified with location information for retrieval.
  •     Real-Time Alerts – SMS, email, and push notifications within milliseconds if a weapon is handled or moved.
  •     Remote Safety Control – Enable or disable the trigger safety on a firearm at any time from a mobile device or secure website. Owners can also define a rule to auto-engage the safety if a gun is moved or handled.
  •     Notification to Authorities – Immediately notify local authorities if unauthorized movement or handling of a weapon is detected.
  •     Reporting and Analytics – Gather and maintain read-only access to real-time and historical reports of a firearm status, location, handling, and use.

The Yardarm solution is built on internally developed M2M technologies and applications, intellectual property, and patent-pending processes. Yardarm Sensor is a prototype M2M component developed in partnership with DataOnline. See a demonstration of the Yardarm Safety First solution in the DataOnline booth (#6040) in the M2M zone at the 2013 CTIA show in Las Vegas, May 21st – 23rd, 2013 and the product will be available in early 2014.
