Deep Sentinel introduces FlashBang crime deterrent device

PLEASANTON, Calif.—Residential and business security provider Deep Sentinel has announced the launch of FlashBang, a crime deterrent device that offers proactive defense mechanisms including smoke bombs, pepper sprays, and ear-piercing sirens.

Launching in May 2024, FlashBang will offer residences and businesses the opportunity to fight back against criminal activity.

Deep SentinelAccording to Capital One Shopping Research. retail theft is spiraling out of control, with stores losing an estimated $112 billion to retail theft in 2022, and projections indicating that amount may reach over $140 billion in 2025, With crime rates escalating and criminal tactics becoming increasingly brazen via flash mob robberies and car-ramming burglaries, Deep Sentinel is empowering homes and businesses to finally subdue and impair criminals.

“Crime is growing exponentially and more aggressively," said David Selinger, CEO and founder of Deep Sentinel, emphasizing the critical role FlashBang will play in combating criminal threats. “People want to see criminals stopped in their tracks. They want to see them behind bars. The way criminals conduct burglaries is much more complex than just 20 years ago, which traditional security companies like ADT were built around. That approach is incredibly outdated and antiquated, which is why we saw a need to bring FlashBang to market.”

FlashBang is equipped with an array of active deterrent capabilities, enabling more impactful action against intruders. When suspicious activity is detected, Deep Sentinel's highly trained guards will first verify the crime and attempt to deter the criminal. If the dangerous activity continues, the guards will then assess the situation and deploy FlashBang, as necessary, to deter criminals effectively.

The integration of FlashBang into Deep Sentinel's PoE camera-based security system offers seamless functionality, ensuring businesses can access these enhanced deterrent features with ease. One FlashBang device can be installed per camera, providing customizable coverage and reassuring protection against criminal threats.

FlashBang's launch follows the company’s release of its new DS2 system at a critical time as communities across the country grapple with the escalation of crime. By empowering individuals and businesses with effective defense mechanisms like FlashBang, Deep Sentinel aims to create safer environments, deter criminal activity, and increase peace of mind for its customers.
