Knightscope to Monitor 518 FDNY Call Boxes

Knightscope Inc

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., June 20, 2024– [Nasdaq:KSCP] (“Knightscope” or the “Company”), an innovator in robotics and artificial intelligence (“AI”) technologies focused on public safety, today announces a new contract with the New York City Fire Department (“FDNY”) subscribing to the  (KEMS) software that will monitor their 518 Call Boxes across Queens, Manhattan, the Bronx, and Brooklyn.

Ensuring the safety of the city is crucial for community well-being. Knightscope helps foster this sense of security in communities with its familiar K1 emergency call boxes that provide highly recognizable locations for reliable, one-touch communication with FDNY. These emergency communications are readily available, proving especially useful when cellular service is unavailable or a device’s battery is depleted, and they pinpoint the exact location of the device being used so that emergency services can be promptly dispatched. In contrast, emergency dispatch professionals are unable to precisely locate individuals using their personal cellular devices to contact 911 due to the lack of GPS data transmission through the system.

The KEMS platform enables clients and technicians to gain a better understanding of the real-time operational status of deployed emergency communication devices and receive immediate text/email notifications whenever a help button is pressed. The cloud-based application provides system owners with automated daily email reports on the operational status of their system, eliminating the need for manual testing of each device as required by competing products. Alerts pertaining to issues, real-time error detection/diagnostics, and system performance statistics are delivered to users to optimize system operation and usability.
