MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Knightscope, Inc. [Nasdaq: KSCP] (“Knightscope” or the “Company”), a leading developer of autonomous security robots and blue light emergency communication systems, today announces two new sales for its K5 Autonomous Security Robots (“ASRs”) as well as an expansion sale from an existing user of Knightscope’s K1B line of emergency communication systems.
MAKING HOTELS HOSPITABLE
Two Portland, Oregon, hotels each signed contracts for Knightscope ASRs to patrol their parking areas after the word-of-mouth-success of another Portland area hotel. Security in hospitality encompasses a hotel’s building and grounds as well as its guests, employees, visitors and day users. As recently outlined in Knightscope’s Blog, operators and administrators must follow an integrated approach when adding ASRs, observing all aspects of security to ensure the optimal combination of organizational, technical and physical measures to prevent and respond in a timely manner to any dangerous situation. Knightscope ASRs patrolling the perimeter will alert personnel to certain threats, allowing them to respond quickly when assistance is needed.
SAFETY IN EDUCATION
Following a previously announced sale of 22 devices, a Florida college is expanding its emergency communications program and retrofitting a competitor’s products with Knightscope’s K1 Retrofit Kits and faceplates. In order to prevent school shootings and other types of crime from occurring in our educational institutions, it is crucial to invest in a wide array of approaches that systematically create safe, healthy, and supportive schools for all students rather than just hardening access to them. Knightscope’s blue light phones and towers provide reliable communications throughout school campuses to access emergency assistance.
