New CEO Leads Gamma2 Ramsee Security Robots

By: Brian Karas, Published on Nov 07, 2016

Security robots have gained increasing attention and controversy, with the run over child and Knightscope's ongoing claims to reduce crime.

Now, the first security robot company is back with a new CEO from mega guard supplier G4S and a focus on deploying robots in more targeted applications.

In this note, we share findings from speaking with Gamma2 CEO Lew Pincus [link no longer available], how they plan to go to market and our assessment of their potential.

Possibly the goofiest looking so far :)

Overall, this marketing strategy seems more accurate than competitor offerings:

"Gamma2 says 10-12 hours of runtime after a 4-5 hour charge time is typical, but may vary based on actual environment"

No mention of ridiculously short charging time frames for 8 hours of use.

"base price of $59,000 MSRP"

Pricing seems more reasonable.

"Ramsee will be sold through qualified security integrators"

It appears they are targeting selling through integrators rather than guard companies. I see more promise in this product based solely upon their business model than Knightscope. Knightscope will be brought in with Universal/Allied and Ramsee will be what an integrator bids to compete.

The robot still cannot climb stairs, open doors or navigate elevators.

Soon enough. (Skip to the end for man and stick vs robot).
