Undisclosed Self-Storage Operator Invests in 5 Knightscope Security Robots

A self-storage operator is investing in security robots from Knightscope Inc., a security-camera and robotics company headquartered in Mountain View, California. The initial contract includes five K5 Autonomous Security Robots (ASRs), which are designed to monitor human activity. Though the purchasing company was not disclosed, it is “one of the fastest-growing self-storage platforms in the United States, with assets located primarily in high-density, urban markets,” according to a press release.

The ASRs will patrol five self-storage locations—two in Portland, Oregon, and three in California—to protect tenants and their belongings and help mitigate risk. In addition to their security function, the robots can broadcast messages and act as brand ambassadors. Based on the success of this initial program, the client may deploy the technology at additional locations, the release stated.

Founded in 2013 by William Santana Li and Stacy Dean Stephens, Knightscope offers blue-light emergency communications systems in addition to its ASRs. Its products are used at airports, hospitals, hotels, parks, schools and other public areas. The company is currently producing a Robot Roadshow to showcase its technology. The next event is scheduled for Aug. 23-24 at The Fuge in Warminster, Pennsylvania. Participants will be able to interact with ASRs, test a blue-light emergency phone and more.
