Cobalt Robotics, the only machine-learning company to automate repetitive manual security and facility tasks with autonomous robots around the world, has announced a new collaboration with Johnson Controls.

Johnson Controls C•CURE 9000 access control and event management system is now integrated with Cobalt’s remote guard service, which includes AI robotics, machine-learning software and human oversight.

With this integration, Cobalt robots listen for alarms and are automatically dispatched to the location in real-time, after an alarm is triggered. The robots will escalate the incident in the C•CURE 9000 system, stand guard and provide situational awareness until the issue is resolved.

Cobalt robots can also escalate incidents to C•CURE 9000, if an anomaly is detected, such as a door held open (DHO) alarm and escalate the incident to a GSOC operator, if human support is required.

At the end of the event, Cobalt provides a complete paper/digital trail, including images, live video, timestamps, response time and resolution for each incident.

We are excited about this collaboration, as businesses now can take advantage of both the C•CURE access control system and Cobalt’s AI-powered robotics,” said Mike LeBlanc, the President and Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Cobalt Robotics.

Integrated system to automate alarm response

Mike LeBlanc adds, “As companies turn to technology to secure their facilities and keep employees safe, the integrated Johnson Controls and Cobalt solution can automate responses to major security incidents from breaches and break-ins to risks like open doors. With businesses struggling to find security guards and keep costs under control, this integrated system is the way to automate alarm response at a substantially reduced cost.

For many of our customers, hiring expensive security guards during a difficult labour shortage is not an option,” said Rick Focke, the Director of Product Management, Enterprise Access Control, Johnson Controls, adding “With this integration, companies can get an all-in-one security solution from alarms to robots to keep their building secure and employees safe.

Dispatching AI robots from state-of the-art security alarms

Rick Focke continues, “The security workflow between our alarms and Cobalt’s robots is seamless, and all reports are automatically created and tracked, so companies can make facility improvements over time. Dispatching AI robots from state-of the-art security alarms is going to be the future of securing buildings in a much smarter, more cost-efficient way.

Cobalt is propelling the use of robots among modern enterprises, as companies look to new AI-based innovations to automate security and improve safety.
