Knightscope’s AI-enhanced Security Robots Address Concerns Surrounding Business Protection Industry

  • Knightscope is a private industry security robot developer pioneering autonomous solutions to many long-standing concerns with corporate facility protection
  • These robots’ ability to perform repetitive, often boring and sometimes dangerous tasks makes them ideally suited for property patrolling, and their capacity for analyzing and recording their interactions qualifies them for actual crime prevention and reporting
  • Knightscope’s models include stationary, indoor mobile and outdoor mobile machines that are outfitted with technological features including 360-degree eye-level HD streaming video, face and license plate recognition, and infrared thermal detection
  • Sales promotion of the K5 has showcased its competitiveness by presenting its profile in a curriculum vitae (CV) resume format highlighting its history, achievements and personality
  • While Knightscope is not listed on a public exchange, its shares are available for purchase through its Reg A+ offering and the company now boasts more than 17,000 investors that include law enforcement and private security officers experienced in the industry

Autonomous security robot developer Knightscope has built a fleet of security professionals from the ground up to meet the personnel and property protection needs of corporate America in the modern era.

Much of the media discussion about security these days appears to focus on cybersecurity concerns, but physical security issues continue to remain a priority for government and private industry as well. Experts in the physical security industry note that many companies’ failure to remain abreast of new technology adoption opportunities only adds a new wrinkle to long-standing concerns about skilled security personnel recruitment and job conditions that undermine personnel safety and general well-being (

Knightscope’s robots have the capability to present companies with automated alternatives to human personnel, overcoming many of the historical problems with security in the process.

“One of the more obvious roles for robots in security is that they’re highly productive in repetitive and dangerous tasks,” EVP and Chief Client Officer, Stacy Stephens, states in a company video ( “So if you can imagine putting a human being into a place where they’re doing the same thing over and over and over again, they become ineffective very, very quickly. You can also imagine having to put somebody in the line of fire in a dangerous situation — a robot doesn’t care about that. You put them in there instead of a human being, you make it safer and much more productive.”

The company has used a human resources and recruitment type of model to promote its sentries, developing a resume of sorts that showcases the K5 models’ professional history, successes, capabilities and attributes. The work experience element of its profile notes “the diversity of the K5’s ‘employers’ and the multitude of industries in which Knightscope robots may be utilized,” for example, while the education section highlights the software used in the model (

Among its accomplishments, the robot’s CV lists statistics showing it has helped generate a 46 percent decrease in crime reports since being deployed at the Huntington Park Police Department, as well as a 68 percent decrease in citations but a 27 percent increase in arrests. And the company even lists the K5’s “hobbies,” such as providing evidence for prosecuting criminals, deterring vagrancy and preventing vehicle break-ins.

“The goal was to use the K5 resume to apply to job postings looking to hire security guards and, in doing so, getting the information about security robots into the hands of decision makers. The plan worked and we booked several demos within the first week of activity,” Knightscope’s report on the approach states.

The K5 is an outdoor model designed for mobility access areas. It is joined by a lineup of K1 stationary machines and roving K3 indoor machines, self-driven by artificial intelligence to maintain its energy level, detect potential problems and record / transmit its interactions while also sustaining interactivity with human operators.

Knightscope has the backing of four major corporations and more than 17,000 investors, many of whom are “chief security officers of major corporations … NYPD detectives, (representatives of the) FBI, CIA, (and) DHS,” according to CEO William Santana Li (
