Toy Or Tool? Video-Based Firearm Detection

Does anyone have experience using video analytics to detect the presence of firearms in video? If so:

- What software did you use/try?

- Was it more of a toy or tool?

Use Case 1: Video Triage. User wants to scan video archives and tag any files/frames that contain firearms. All tagged videos will be reviewed by a human operator. User has *no* control over the format/resolution of the video. User strongly prefers pre-trained recognition models.

Use Case 2: Live Monitoring. User wants to monitor live feeds and alert operators if a firearm is detected. User upgrades cameras (i.e., a mix of EO/IR assets) approximately every 5 years and is not vendor locked. User has onsite operators but would consider external Cloud-based services. Radar-based systems and shot-detection technologies that rely on audio are out-of-scope.
