ADT Commercial launched its EvoGuard intelligent autonomous guarding solutions brand at the 2023 Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
LAS VEGAS — ADT Commercial, a security integrator and provider of commercial security, fire, life safety, and risk consulting services, unveiled its new EvoGuard intelligent autonomous guarding solutions brand at this week’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
EvoGuard by ADT Commercial is a new suite of intelligent autonomous guarding solutions and services aimed at helping to cost-effectively enhance corporate security programs while responding to high turnover rates and ongoing labor shortages in the guarding market. EvoGuard will use artificial intelligence and augmented reality in combination with a fleet of autonomous humanoid robots and drones for comprehensive security surveillance in a wide variety of commercial areas.
“The launch of the EvoGuard brand marks a significant milestone in ADT Commercial’s expansion into the guarding market. We’ve long kept a finger to the pulse of the industry and we’re focused on identifying opportunities to innovate in ways that are meaningful and totally customer-driven,” said Dan Bresingham, President, Commercial at ADT in an official news release. “Given the trends we’ve seen in recent years and the challenges our customers are facing in keeping their guard forces adequately staffed, we recognized an incredible opportunity to usher in a new era in guarding through technology.”
With EvoGuard by ADT Commercial, the goal is for organizations to be able to effectively enhance their security programs by deploying intelligent autonomous guarding solutions at their facilities. Capabilities currently in development1 would allow organizations to:
- Efficiently automate routine tasks, including 24/7 patrols with constant alertness
- Capture evidence of disturbances or unauthorized personnel for faster alarm verification
- Quickly respond to high-risk or hazardous scenarios without risking human life
- Cost-effectively increase surveillance while reducing labor costs and overcoming staffing shortages
The solutions are targeted for commercialization in 2023 and will be specifically tailored for enterprise-level and high-security environments.
“By incorporating the kind of revolutionary technology we’re releasing under the EvoGuard brand into their security programs, commercial organizations will be able to work more safely and efficiently,” said Ed Bacco, Vice President, Emerging Technologies for ADT Commercial. “The addition of humanoid robots and autonomous indoor drones means that these solutions can take on the typical security guarding tasks of observe-and-report, while being able to capture unbiased, critical data in an emergency and engage with the environment in a way that doesn’t risk human life. It’s a game-changer and what we view as a cost-effective response to the ongoing challenges many have been experiencing with staffing guard forces.”
