Rent a Robot. Maybe one day we’ll all rent robots to guard our property – and ourselves? – but they’ll probably have to look a bit, well funkier, than this SECOM Robot X, eh? And cheaper than $2500 a month too. Unless they sweep the yard, clean the bathroom, walk the dog and mind the kids while we’re out bowling like properly irresponsible parents.
The robot’s key features are as follows: (1) It can travel at 10 km/h, a speed of a human jogging moderately (2) An all-around view camera mounted on top of the robot enables to survey areas, which are blind spots for fixed cameras and difficult for human security guards to go in, (3) To prevent crimes, it can threaten intruders with voice, sound, light (flashing) and smoke from an optional smoke emitter (4) It features a fire sensor to detect suspicious fires and start an optional automatic fire extinguisher to stop fires
