The Crotega Sentrē™ Non-Lethal Threat Suppression System, the First-of-its-Kind System to keep building occupants safe from physical violence brought on by Active Shooter Intrusions
Many methods have been implemented to prevent or stop violence of active shooters in public spaces. Some of these measures include security guards, antibullying programs, mediation, policies, physical barriers and metal detectors.
Few of these have been deemed to be effective. The reality is that it takes time for law enforcement to get to the scene to address an active shooter situation.
The Crotega Sentrē™ Non-Lethal Threat Suppression System is a new innovative interior threat suppression system designed to deter, disrupt, and delay active killers and other threats inside of buildings upon visual recognition of the threat.
Sentrē is a patent-pending rapid-defense, nonviolent solution that can help save lives.
When deployed, Sentrē significantly irritates the senses and debilitates attackers, giving In-House Responders and law enforcement time to secure the area and control the situation.
The Sentrē system includes warning decals and signage to help prevent violence from an active shooter before it starts.

This international patent-pending system is the first of its kind, with applications in schools, public buildings, commercial buildings, airport terminals, medical marijuana industry facilities, banks, military facilities, and any other facility at risk of violent perpetrators.

Monitoring and Deploying the Sentrē™ System
The Sentrē user interface consists of one or more POE tethered touchscreen stations located throughout your facility in locations where trained building occupants can quickly respond to an alert.
Each touchscreen is monitored by an employee.
The Sentrē touchscreen allows the trained building occupants to monitor and visually recognize the threat and deploy the Sentrē system for any single zone or multiple zones.

Crotega Sentrē is a closed system. All control connections are hardwired to protect the system from unwanted wireless access by those who would do harm.
- The touchscreen has a two step authorization process which keep the system from accidentally being deployed.
- Remote, manually operated switches, are also located within each zone.
- The manual switches can be activated if needed, which in-turn notifies the touchscreen stations that an intruder has entered the zone.
- Optional gunshot detection devices alert the system without automatic deployment.
- The deployment of the system can only be done from the touchscreen monitoring station.
- The system will control single or multiple zones and is scalable to control entire facilities.
- Multiple facilities, on the same campus, can be controlled providing high quality secure fiber optic connections are available or could be installed.

Crotega at a Glance
A Company that Stops Active Shooters & Intruders
Jody Allen Crowe’s experience with weapons in schools, along with the national tragedies of Sandy Hook and other school shootings led him to bring experts together to research and develop an innovative structural change to buildings that will have a lasting impact on interior control of buildings.
The concept of a building intruder defensive shield is the first-of-its-kind building occupant protection system with the potential to change building infrastructures in the same manner fire sprinklers did for fire control.
