Knightscope (NASDAQ: KSCP), a leading developer of autonomous security robots (“ASRs”) and blue light emergency communication systems, is unveiling a new offering. The company is adding real-time, automated gunshot detection to its already impressive portfolio of autonomous security products and services. According to the announcement, gunshot detection systems are designed to reduce police and security response times and can help quickly resolve threats to public safety.
The company observed that its decision to add a gunshot solution to its portfolio comes in direct response to requests from schools, corporations, airports, hotels and municipalities that are looking at purchasing gunshot detection systems as part of their active threat and emergency response plans. Gunshot detection systems are known to mitigate active-shooter events; reduce false alarms; and complement other security solutions to provide better protection.
Knightscope’s new automated gunshot detection system will be incorporated into new K1 Blue Light Towers and will also be available as an upgrade to the more than 7,000 KSCP devices already operating across the United States. Knightscope’s gunshot detection service can be used as a standalone device or in conjunction with the company’s K5 Outdoor and K3 Indoor Autonomous Security Robots (“ASRs”).
“We are excited to begin the upgrade of our nation’s public safety infrastructure by deploying technology that can give law enforcement officers and security professionals new capabilities with ‘eyes, ears and voice’ on the ground driven by artificial intelligence 24/7/365,” said Knightscope chair and CEO William Santana Li in the press release. “This is just the beginning of our long-term march to deploy over 1 million machines-in-network having the capabilities to see, feel, hear, smell and speak.”
