Crime has a $1+ trillion negative economic impact on the U.S. economy every year and Knightscope is on a mission to cut it in half. Imagine if we could make the United States of America the safest country in the world – it would change everything for everyone.
Founded in April 2013, Knightscope is an advanced physical security technology that produces Autonomous Data Machines (ADMs). Knightscope’s ADMs are fully autonomous and self-driving gathering significant amounts of data from the environment in real-time and puts the terabytes of data in a usable formula for a human to utilize via its state-of-the-art user interface, the Knightscope Security Operations Center (KSOC).
The Company is presently deploying its technology with 30 clients, in 10 states and 3 time zones. Knightscope’s clients include malls, hospitals, corporate campuses as well as a movie studio, a stadium, a food distribution facility, a pharmaceutical company, a warehouse and a property manager. Westfield Malls, Samsung, Juniper Networks, ForeScout, Dignity Health and the Sacramento Kings, are among many of their distinguished clients. Machines under contract are for California, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Massachusetts, New York, Texas, Washington and Washington D.C.
The Company has reached an all-time high in customer interest with now 170+ potential clients in the pipeline at various stages of the sales process and maturity.
Key strategic investors include NTT DOCOMO, Konica Minolta, Flex Lab IX, and NetPosa. Knightscope has grown its team to over 45 employees in Silicon Valley where it designs and builds the technology with 85% U.S. content. Each machine is marked with the words “Designed and Built in Silicon Valley.”
Securing Our Future
Knightscope has already had huge success in the field, predicting and preventing crime. This new ground-breaking technology has already been able to assist a law enforcement agency in issuing an arrest warrant, helped catch a thief, caught a vandal and stopped a fraudulent insurance claim to name a few successes.
