Commercial real estate investment firm contracts with Knightscope

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – Knightscope, a developer of autonomous security robots and blue light emergency communication systems, announced a new contract for its 5th Generation K5 Autonomous Security Robot (ASR).

The contract comes from an undisclosed privately owned, Miami-based real estate investment company. As a result, the K5 ASR will patrol a retail shopping center in Kansas City, Mo.

Knightscope“Ensuring adequate physical security in a commercial real estate setting is not only a key ingredient to protecting the portfolio, but also essential to maximizing and maintaining tenant occupancy, as well as improving long-term property values,” Knightscope wrote in a release. “According to the National Retail Federation's (NRF) Retail Security Survey (2021-2022), 88% of 117 retail brands reported that shoplifters are ‘somewhat more or much more aggressive and violent’ compared to the year prior, which makes crime deterrence and investigations even more critical in protecting properties and the patrons visiting them. Knightscope’s successful track record continues to be a driving force behind securing additional contracts in the retail space.”

The year 2023 was a very busy one for Knightscope, which most recently began offering Automated Gunshot Detection (AGD) systems for its blue light emergency communications systems, and a contract with a pair of hotels in Oregon to deploy its ASRs.
