Robotic Assistance Devices, an innovator of artificial intelligence and robotic solutions for operational, security and monitoring needs, and the Platinum Award Winner for BestRobotic Perimeter Protection Solution in the 2017 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program, is pleased to announce that the company’s latest guarding solution, the Security Control and Observation Tower (SCOT™), has been nominated to compete in the 2018 ‘ASTORS’ Awards Program.
The needs of today’s end users are constantly evolving and this means solutions that are instantly deployable without infrastructure requirements are gaining in popularity.
Robotic Assistance Devices (RAD) understands this and has developed a solution that meets the needs of customers: The Security Control and Observation Tower (SCOT).
SCOT is ideal for homeland security applications like emergency services and law enforcement where human detection and a noticeable security presence is needed to protect people and assets from outside threats.
SCOT is customizable and can be used anywhere a “stand-at-post” guarding position is in use, any visitor/employee check-in location, and any Kiosk location.
SCOT’s ability to be instantly deployed to a location makes it unique in the market, as many of today’s end users require solutions that offer immediate and long-term results without the debilitating cost of infrastructure investment.
Not only does this allow flexibility, it also results in an organization’s ability to scale as needed to fully address their unique security challenges.
Additionally, customers that need more control and protection of their facilities can deploy the SCOT solution at a fraction of the cost of other solutions.
SCOT is equipped with built-in analytics, including license plate recognition, human detection and alerting, and integration with other security platforms.
It also contains two-way voice communications that can be directed to an organization’s security operations center or patrolling guards, as well as long-range paging for pre-recorded and live messages in the event of an emergency or to offer customized alerts for passersby.
SCOT is a true visitor and employee management solution that offers added coverage for a variety of vertical markets.
“SCOT™’s ability to help an organization expand its security reach in a way that is budget conscious is a win-win for our customers,” explained Steve Reinharz, President and CEO, Robotic Assistance Devices.
SCOT™ is a standalone, remote, portable, self-sufficient intelligent observation tower designed to expand an organization’s security reach instantly.

The SCOT™ solution is ideal for perimeter surveillance for critical infrastructure, distribution and storage centers, data centers, high-value outdoor areas, homeowner’s associations and other restricted properties.
SCOT™ is customizable and can be used anywhere a “stand-at-post” guarding position is in use, at any visitor/employee check-in location and at any kiosk location.
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.
SCOT™’s powers human detection analytics, featuring the longest range detection at low false alarm rates.
Additionally, SCOT™ RAD Software Suite, is a collection of integrated software applications hosted in Microsoft’s Azure Cloud services and allows immediate and mobile access to alerts and controls generated by SCOT™.
“Not only does SCOT™ allow flexibility for deployment, but it also results in an organization’s ability to scale as needed to fully address security challenges,” added Reinharz.
“Customers that need more control and protection of their facilities can deploy the SCOT™ solution at a fraction of the cost of other solutions.”
“SCOT™’s ability to be instantly deployed to a location makes it unique in the market, as many of today’s end users require solutions that offer immediate and long-term results without the debilitating cost or installation time of infrastructure investment.”
