MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- Knightscope, Inc., a leading developer of autonomous security robots (“ASRs”) and blue light emergency communication systems, today announces that three of its clients have ordered additional equipment to expand their emergency communications programs. A healthcare provider in Texas, a Colorado county and college have all issued purchase orders for a total of 5 new systems to enhance access to emergency assistive services.
Installing modern blue light emergency phones and call boxes is key to curing an overconfident dependence on cell phones. Many members of the community may not have (or otherwise may not be carrying) a cell phone, the cell phone battery may be down, or there may be no signal.
Similarly, it is possible that visitors to an area who are in need of assistance may not be familiar with the geography and landmarks, thus being unable to give dispatchers an exact or accurate location over a cell phone.
In extreme situations (e.g., major terrorist event, campus shooting, natural or man-made disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, floods, wildfire, hazardous materials spill, etc.) cell phone users may also experience overloaded networks from too many subscribers trying to access the system during emergent situations when emergency access is most needed.
Knightscope’s illuminated, fixed, reliable devices strategically located nearby can be very reassuring when emergency services are needed. They work day and night in all kinds of weather and even when communications are most congested. Blue light emergency phone systems also always report one’s precise location reliably, ensuring the expedited arrival of the appropriate type of help.
