Guardian 8 Signs Distributor With School Safety Focus
Specialization in survival training, body scanners viewed as key contribution.
SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ. – October 14, 2013 – Guardian 8 Corporation, a provider of enhanced non-lethal [ENL] personal security devices, today announced that it has signed Nova Security Group (www.novasg.com) as a distributor of the G8 Pro V2 product line to school administrators and campus safety officials. The G8 Pro V2, which is the first in a new category of security products called
enhanced non-lethals (ENL) , emphasizes layered defense concepts that allow teachers to repel intruders without exposing their position. The Pro V2 can also be used to communicate vital situational updates to off-site officials and record video of the event. Guardian 8 Corporation is the wholly owned operating subsidiary of Guardian 8 Holdings (OTCQB: GRDH).
Guardian 8 CEO, Steve Cochennet, commented “we intend to change the dialogue on campus safety in our Nation where a successful defense teeters on the few minutes between intruder detection and law enforcement response.” School teachers are often instructed to respond using a commonly taught Run-Hide-Fight concept where direct conflict is avoided and teachers focus on concealing students from harm. It is considered a vital approach in protecting 64 million students in kindergarten through 12th grade in the US. “Nova Security Group has the body scanners for detection and survival training acumen that will help us introduce the Pro V2 as a wise choice for the educator community,” Cochennet added. Nova Security Group will be placing a $10,000 order as an initial stocking inventory of Guardian 8 product.
The G8 Pro V2 fully integrates several non-lethal technologies and a communications platform to provide a safer personal defense solution. It provides a layered defense as an alternative to force from up to 50 feet away, including laser spotter, siren, strobe light, O.C. pepper spray, camera with voice and video auto-record functionality, and push-to-talk communications capabilities.
The cost of the Pro V2 unit is advertised on the company’s website at $279 per unit and accessories are also available. For full details on product and pricing, visit the Guardian 8 website.
