MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – Knightscope, Inc. [Nasdaq: KSCP] (“Knightscope” or the “Company”), a leading developer of autonomous security robots and blue light emergency communication systems, today announced that a large, family-owned and operated dining company with over 2,500 locations (primarily in the US), signed a contract for its K5 Autonomous Security Robot (ASR) service. The K5 will patrol the company’s corporate offices in Southern California to enhance employee safety at the campus while elevating the visitor experience.
According to Knightscope, people should feel as safe at work as they do at home. Visits to open campuses are enjoyable and even motivating with the average American corporate employee spending a third of their waking hours inside of their company’s campus. As outlined in Knightscope’s 5-Step Recommendation for Corporate Campuses, security begins with a well-defined perimeter. And a good, proactive safety program is enhanced with Knightscope’s technologies that help reduce vulnerabilities to many crimes, creating a safe and effective working environment.
Northern California County Expansion Sale
A county in northern California is expanding its 56-unit roadside emergency call box system by purchasing 16 K1 Call Boxes that operate using satellite communications plus 7 operating on 4G cellular for a total of 23 new units. The satellite and cellular phones will be installed on rural roads in unincorporated areas of the county that have limited to no communication services. Many hours were spent conducting important field surveys to identify the new phone locations to best serve the public. The Knightscope team will install the phones and provide maintenance services under contract.
The included, all-new Knightscope Emergency Management System (“KEMS”) platform will allow the county and Knightscope service technicians to better understand the real-time health and status of all machines-in-network and to help improve system operability. The cloud-based application monitors system state-of-health, alerts users concerning operational issues, provides technicians real-time error detection/diagnostics, and collects/reports system performance statics with new features being planned as part of Knightscope’s long-term strategy to conduct a significant overhaul of the Nation’s public safety infrastructure.
Call Boxes immediately connect users to first responder services and provide the exact location of the device being used so that services may be quickly dispatched. By contrast, law enforcement professionals are unable to pinpoint people using their personal cellular devices to contact 911 because GPS data is not transmitted through the system.
Knightscope’s leading-edge communications products and ASR services provide reliable technologies for corporate campuses to help better protect the places people live, work, study, dine and visit.
