When trying to combat today’s security risk landscape, there’s no time or budget to waste on a solution. A tragic incident can occur at any given moment and the frequency with which these events are occurring across the world is only increasing. Enterprise organizations demand security solutions that offer immediate and long-term results in a cost-effective and hassle-free manner.
Artificially intelligent solutions are emerging in the market to offer a cost-effective alternative to both expensive infrastructure improvements and the costs associated with hiring manned guards for an organization. Couple AI-based tech with a service model that allows rapid deployment, and you have a solution that has the potential to truly disrupt the way security is approached on a broader scale in the marketplace.
This kind of technology is available now through the Robotic Assistance Devices (RAD) Security Control and Observation Tower (SCOT™), which provides users with the flexibility and scalability to achieve quick, inexpensive and comprehensive protection.
SCOT is a standalone, portable, self-sufficient intelligence device that provides a visible security presence and enhances situational awareness. SCOT’s use of artificial intelligence allows it to deliver guarding services at a fraction of the cost and is considerably more affordable than any human or automated solution on the market.
Designed to protect people and assets from outside threats, and instantly expand an organization’s security reach, SCOT is suitable for applications where long-range human detection —powered by analytics to achieve low false-alarm rates— and automated/custom interaction are necessary.
It provides perimeter surveillance for critical infrastructure sites, distribution and storage centers, data centers, high-value outdoor areas, homeowner’s associations and other restricted properties. SCOT can also be used anywhere a “stand-at-post” guarding position is in use, at any visitor/employee check-in location or at any kiosk location.
To further facilitate rapid responses, SCOT will also debut the RAD Software Suite, which is a collection of integrated software applications hosted in Microsoft’s Azure Cloud services that allows immediate and mobile access to alerts and controls generated by SCOT. This assures the most timely and effective resolution to security incidents.
Without the debilitating cost or installation time of infrastructure investment, SCOT delivers an affordable guarding service to those looking to obtain more control of their facility and ensure thorough security.
During the ISC West expo, don’t miss RAD’s Steve Reinharz on the “Seeing is Believing – Drones, Robotics, and the Integration of Video Applications” panel on April 11, from 1:15-2:15 p.m. in Sands 201 Level 1, and the “Guarding in the Age of Robotics” panel afterward from 2:30-3:30 p.m. in the same location.
