After calls by the President to make guns safer, an Arizona company says they've developed a game-changing alarm for guns.

It's half of the size of a cell phone and can fit almost any gun, and a Lake Havasu based company showed it off in Scottsdale, Tuesday.

It's called the Insyte 1 developed by Advanced Warning Systems.

The creators say the lock goes over the trigger of the gun and sounds a high pitched alarm if it's disturbed.

The idea is, if a child or someone else who isn't allowed to handle the firearm gets a hold of it, an adult or parent would be able to intervene quickly.

The higher end version comes with GPS tracking and a camera. Owners would receive a push alert right to their phones to alert them.

The managing partner for Advanced Warning Systems knows there is a lot of passion wrapped up in gun rights and safety.

"We feel we are on both sides of the issue, there are over 300 million guns out there, we can make them safer, that would be ideal," said Lynnwood Farr, Managing Partner for Advanced Warning Systems.
