In recent years, there has been a spike in the unauthorized use of firearms which has resulted in deaths – both accidental and deliberate. In order to minimize future risks, Yardarm introduced its Safety First technology. This technology allows gun owners to remotely engage or disengage the trigger safety on their firearms from anywhere in the world. In order for this to work, the technology will need to be custom built right inside the firearm.
A sensor and a SIM card, similar to the one used on phones, will be placed inside each handgun and these will enable the gun to communicate with a phone app allowing the gun owner to view information about that firearm from afar.
The technology also alerts the gun owner, either by text (SMS) message or by email, of any movement made by the gun, whether it’s just a minimal change in location or one that involves long distances. The geo-location feature will enable the owner to track the firearm and its movements. Furthermore, this technology gives the owner the ability to engage of disengage the trigger safety remotely. As an added security feature, the app is password protected and in spite of all the advancement, the app cannot be used to fire the gun remotely.
