Knightscope Launches New K1 Security Robot

KnightscopeK1 400x275

June 24, 2022

Knightscope, which develops advanced physical security technology through robotics, has announced the new K1 Hemisphere Autonomous Security Robot (ASR), and is now accepting pre-orders at its website.

The Hemisphere includes Knightscope’s existing suite of technologies, but in a more compact size and a new subscription price – an introductory price will be $0.75 per hour on an annual contract, with optional Knightscope+ remote monitoring services that can be added for an extra $2 per hour. Shipping on the new K1 Hemisphere is expected to occur later this year.

The new robot includes three cameras that provide 180-degree, eye-level and high-definition video, a strobe light, automatic license plate recognition, facial recognition, automatic broadcast announcements and intercom capability. Knightscope said the K1 can run fully over an encrypted 4G or 5G wireless network. The robot is aimed as an entry point for companies and areas such as commercial property owners, residential, bank ATM vestibules, truck stops, lobbies, loading docks, ports, rail, schools and other locations where security and safety profiles can be enhanced.
