On the Move Systems’ wholly-owned subsidiary Robotic Assistance Devices (RAD) will make its S5 Security Guard Robot available to members of PSA Security Network, the world’s largest systems integrator cooperative made up of the most progressive security and audio-visual integration firms in North America.

PSA Security Network encompasses more than 400 branch locations, employing more than 7,500 industry professionals, with more than $4.5 billion annually in security, fire, life safety and pro audio-visual installations.

By leveraging the power of the PSA Security Network, RAD, a Proud Sponsor of the 2017 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program, will expand the geographic reach of the innovative S5 Security Guard Robot solution while allowing PSA members to gain access to the rapidly growing artificial intelligence (AI) market.

“Robotics is the wave of the future, and PSA strives to be a leader in the delivery of cutting-edge technologies,” said Bill Bozeman, President and CEO, PSA.

“RAD enables PSA integrators to deliver advanced solutions that streamline efficiency, are cost effective and strengthen overall security.”

“We are excited to have the opportunity to add RAD to our rich portfolio of technology partners.”

“We’re excited to offer our robotic solution through another channel as part of PSA’s expansive integrator network, allowing us to expand our market reach and educate more end users on how these solutions can solve today’s most complex security problems,” said Steve Reinharz, President and CEO of RAD.

“PSA members will now have the ability to not only offer a cutting-edge technology to their customers, but also add additional revenue to their business through our robots-as-a-service model.”

S5 Security Guard Robot

The SMP/RAD Robotics S5 Robotic Guard is a fully autonomous unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) that utilizes advanced artificial intelligence systems to augment traditional patrolling services by detecting unauthorized human and vehicle outdoor activity in restricted areas.

S5 Security Robot by SMP Robotics
The S5 is the world’s first commercial outdoor security robot that can function in various terrain conditions: road, off-road, grass and gravel. The strong surface grip allows the robots to surmount level differences, bumps and ditches. The robot can operate in all types of weather conditions (rain, snow, fog, smoke, etc.), with temperatures ranging from -4F to 100F.

The robot uses machine vision learning inertial navigation and other proprietary navigation systems to know exactly where it is and where it is going.

The security robot can patrol on a scheduled set route or routes and can report on anomalies that are found on its patrol route.

The S5 Robotic Guard can operate up to 12 hours without recharging and continuously monitors in any weather environment, including rain, snow, gusty wind and temperatures ranging from -7 degrees F to 110 degrees F.

It incorporates automatic obstacle avoidance sensors, two-way audio, panic button and onboard panoramic video surveillance to increase situational awareness.

Additionally, it integrates with leading video management solutions and supports other business systems for special equipment, sensor integration, and advanced software development.

The S5 Robotic Guard is ideal for critical infrastructure and perimeter security to lower risk boost productivity and ensure safety.

RAD currently has a sales pipeline of more than 50 Fortune 500 companies and more than 25 qualified dealers and distributors that have a combined customer base of more than 35,000 corporations.

RAD deploys its robots using a “robots-as-a-service” rental program charging on a monthly basis for the robot.

Included in the monthly fee are regular maintenance, warranty, upgrades, training and retraining, and deployment.

It is also essential for remote location monitoring, providing security where otherwise none would be reasonable to implement, including oil and gas production facilities, utility locations and other enterprise sites.

Modern Robotic Guards

Modern Robotic Guards can be used by organizations to make their security departments move beyond “guns, guards and gates” to streamline departments.

By utilizing our RADBot™, they can enhance their ability to effectively patrol large sites.

How it works:

  • Patrols a set route or routes depending on schedule.
  • While on patrol, 360 degrees of video are captured by the robot.
  • This video is an extension of the organization’s existing data capture, operational and safety efforts.
  • Security officers and/or the Security Operations Center (SOC) can view the video of what the robot ‘sees’ at any time.
  • The robot will alert a guard or the SOC when a predefined parameter, such as an individual, is identified.
  • The robot can automatically announce a message to the potential intruder and engage with the SOC for two-way voice control.
  • If so equipped the robot can capture license plate information while on patrol.
  • The robot, if so equipped, can offer remote guards and operators a variety of additional visualization technology including pan/tilt/zoom cameras, IR imaging and/or thermal cameras.
  • Additional integration options are available.
