Gun App to Control Trigger Safety

Gun AppMEDFORD, Ore. — Gun owners will soon be able to control the trigger safety on their firearm through their phone.

A California-based company, Yardarm, is developing software where people can remotely engage or disengage the trigger safety. The company says inside the gun is a processor, sensor and SIM card, similar to a phone.

Through a password protected app on a smart-phone, the software will alert the owner of any gun movement. The alerts are sent through text messages or e-mail.

“I think I would think more about it being a way to  prevent kids from being able to like, take their parents guns to school or something like that. An alert like  that would be great,” said gun owner Richard Kumro.

The technology has to be built right into the firearm. The company says the software cannot fire the gun. It will be available to the public sometime next year.
