Knightscope (NASDAQ: KSCP), a leading developer of autonomous security robots (“ASRs”) and blue light emergency communication systems, has launched sales of its Automated Gunshot Detection (“AGD”) systems for both indoor and outdoor settings. According to the announcement, the systems are available as standalone sensors that can be easily mounted to existing structures or with an optional pole-mounting kit and solar power for installation flexibility.
The new AGD system is completely automated and features precision localization, enabling the identification of shots in both horizontal and vertical planes (location and elevation). This ability translates into a significant reduction in police and security response times, thereby expediting the resolution of active shooter threats and helping to save lives. In addition, gunshot detection contributes to reduced false alarms, which can lead to threat fatigue and cause potential inappropriate responses in time of true danger. Gunshot detection systems also complement other security solutions to provide better protection.
Knightscope noted that its existing clients will be able to add the AGD system to any new K1 Blue Light Tower orders; clients will also have the option to upgrade their existing devices. Currently, more than 7,000 KSCP security devices are deployed across the country.
“Once AGD detects a shot, notifications are delivered in less than two seconds (assuming sufficient cellular service) using a multisensor system that is incredibly reliable and minimizes false alarms,” the company stated in the press release. “Knightscope believes that an onsite, hyperfocused, real-time system is significantly more effective than attempting a citywide approach over vast areas.”
