Knightscope, which develops physical security technologies through robotics, has announced a strategic partnership with Allied Universal, a security and facility services company with $20 billion in revenues and more than 800,000 employees worldwide. The partnership will provide autonomous security robots (ASRs) to Allied’s U.S.-based customers to help them deter crime, enhance situational awareness and improve security professional’s safety.
A division of Allied Universal, Allied Universal Technology Services, will offer the Knightscope technologies for deployment in the U.S. immediately. The systems include the K5 Outdoor, K3 Indoor, and K1 Stationary ASRs, the Knightscope Security Operations Center (KSOC) browser-based user interface for end users, autonomous charging/docking stations, data storage and full support, service, and maintenance.
“Our commitment to providing the best proactive security services to our customers is unwavering,” said Carey Boethel, president of Allied Universal Technology Services. “The partnership with Knightscope allows us to expand our delivery of smart cutting-edge technologies to enhance public safety, allowing our customers to focus on their core businesses.”
The services division of Allied Universal provides electronic access control, video surveillance, fire/life safety, alarm monitoring, emergency communications, hosted/managed services and several security center services.
“Partnering with Allied Universal is a perfect recipe for success – robots are deployed to do the monotonous, computational heavy work while the strategic, hands-on activities are the responsibility of the humans,” said William Santana Li, chairman and CEO of Knightscope. “We are excited for the future that this agreement will bring in driving steady long-term growth.”
