Robots specifically designed to meet the complex needs of the workplace and the people providing security for those workplaces and can transform the way facilities monitor and activate advanced security processes. Johnson Controls employs Ava security robots to enhance the effectiveness of their powerful Tyco Illustra cameras and to deliver an intelligent, autonomous security technology solution.

The security robot provides enhanced deterrence and high-quality evidence for investigations, managing repeatable security tasks and enabling security personnel to focus on high-value activities. This combination of robots with existing reporting practices and historical trend analysis can improve the security posture of organizations by uncovering gaps, driving behavioral change and providing data to drive business decisions. The robot provides:

  • People detection.
  • Incident prevention.
  • Monitoring and management.
  • Comprehensive security coverage.
  • Operations beyond traditional security.

The security robot supports both basic security operations as well as highly sophisticated ones, addressing evolving security and facility monitoring needs by streamlining operations, maximizing staffing resources and automating processes to empower staff to take the right action in real time. The security robots deliver:

  • Security technology that is mobile, intelligent, intuitive and interactive.
  • Security technology that augments human activities and automates tasks.
  • Security systems enhancements utilizing robots that create a sense of confidence around security efforts.
  • Utility that improves the workplace, empowers staff and improves overall facilities functionality.

"With the security robot, we enable workplaces to realize better business outcomes, operations and access by uncovering unmet needs in the workplace, especially those that can be solved through augmentation and automation. This purposeful approach creates better work environments for people and enriches the workplace," said Marcio Macedo, cofounder and VP of products at Ava Robotics.

You can find the robot at the Tyco/Johnson Controls space at Intersec 2022, January 16-to-18, Dubai World Trade Centre, UAE, stand S1-K12.
