Athena Weapons Detection System Software



Health and Safety

The OPENGATE device uses low-frequency electro-magnetic technology, dynamic non-contact detection, and meets EMC electromagnetic radiation standards. It does not harm humans, medical devices like pacemakers, pregnant women, kids, or electronic devices.

Best Practices For Weapons Detection Systems
  • Test the system with the “Security Standard” of your choice each time it is moved and at least once a month to ensure it is detecting in all 9  areas of the WDS as stated In the best practice guide by Homeland Security.

  • Test the system after setup with the “Security Standard” of your choice.

  • Document your settings (“Security Standard”) when changed and who tested the system after it has been changed. 

  • Document any failed tests and how you fixed them
  • Document any parts replaced on the system and when it was fixed and test results afterward. 
  • Document any findings when in use
  • Test the system daily and before any big events to ensure the system is operating as expected.
  • Document the “Security Standard” settings you run the system on for the threat level that your organization is currently experiencing.
