MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--()--Knightscope, developer of advanced physical security technologies focused on significantly enhancing U.S. security operations, today announced the K1 to complement its growing portfolio of Autonomous Data Machines (ADM), including the K3 (indoors), K5 (outdoors) and the upcoming K7 (multi-terrain). The K1 will initially cater to airports, hospitals, retail and other environments with highly sensitive points of ingress/egress requiring a physical presence but in a stationary form.

Knightscope will begin delivering the K1 to clients in the fourth quarter of 2017 with a comparable set of features to that of the K3 and K5, but priced at $5 per hour for both indoor and outdoor usage. These features include 360-degree daytime/nighttime live streaming and recorded video, license plate recognition, people and signal detection as well as broadcast and intercom functionality.

The K1 with the optional Concealed Weapon Detection and Radiation Detection capabilities will commence shipping in 2018 at $7 per hour utilizing the Company’s industry leading Machine-as-a-Service (MaaS) business model. Clients electing not to utilize these optional features will still be able to obtain the K1 at the $5 per hour rate in 2018.
