Artificial intelligence is no longer just the future of work—it is the here and now. Security robots, powered by artificial intelligence, are designed to perform security tasks with the help of cameras, sensors, and other technologies.

What Is a Security Robot?

Security robots are autonomous devices that may complete various security functions, ranging from area surveillance to patrolling, threat detection, and even threat response. Not intended to completely replace human security guards, robotic devices are a cost-effective assistant to existing personnel in augmenting traditional security services and increasing human staff productivity.

At DK Security, we partnered with Robotic Assistance Devices (RAD) to create the DK Robotics division for our robotic security needs. RAD is a Detroit-based innovator in AI technology that delivers a suite of robotic security devices through an integration of human and AI-driven guarding. 

Built to solve security challenges and evolve current processes, RAD completes tasks autonomously, supports human productivity, and operates continuously. As a regional dealer serving Michigan, Indiana, and Ohio, DK Security links local organizations with cutting-edge robotic security solutions designed and delivered by RAD. 

There are several different types of security solutions available to you from RAD via DK Robotics, all with unique functions and advantages. We are eager to introduce you to the RAD lineup and explain which stationary and mobile security robots would best fit your organization.

ROSA: Responsive Observation Security Agent

ROSA is a completely self-contained and autonomous response device that performs industry-leading surveillance, event detection, and communication. It operates 24/7, provides a 180° field of view, deters criminal activity through customizable audio and visual alerts, and communicates cellularly with your staff.

It’s important to note that ROSA is not “just another camera.” Here’s how a client of RAD recently used ROSA devices to solve ongoing concerns with vandalism, trespassing, and theft at their organization.

RIO: ROSA Independent Observatory

Put simply, RIO allows you to take ROSA on the go. Sitting atop the RIO Solar Tower, ROSA can be deployed anywhere, and will surveil large areas where no buildings are available to mount the device on. RIO expands ROSA’s field of view to 360° and provides continuous open-area surveillance from a tall, sturdy structure.

AVA: Autonomous Verified Access

AVA is a mountable robotic unit capable of advanced access control over gates and other controlled points of entry. Using artificial intelligence and true 180° vision, AVA detects and interacts with vehicles upon entry and exit of your facility’s gated areas.

Gate guarding technology with AVA comes standard with a variety of access verification options, from custom PINs to barcode and QR code recognition. Human interaction via camera is also an option; AVA’s audio and video tools connect drivers with local or remote monitoring staff when face-to-face communication is preferred.

ROAMEO: Rugged Observation Assistance Mobile Electronic Officer

Standing at nearly seven feet tall and weighing over 700lbs, ROAMEO takes AI analytics, video surveillance, and interactive communication on the go like no other robot security guard on the market. 360° cameras and real-time analytics allow ROAMEO to plan patrol routes, avoid obstacles (people, trees, power structures, etc.), and apply AI learning continuously.

Not only does ROAMEO patrol, but it also interacts with people along its route. Constant surveillance from a 78” high camera system allows ROAMEO to provide calls for help, panic buttons, security alerts, and fully customizable concierge services (e.g. local information, weather, directions, advertising) to anyone in its path.

RADDOG: The Security Industry’s Only Purpose-Built Robot Dog

Entering the RAD lineup in 2023 is RADDOG, a robotic dog built specifically to support RAD stationary devices with AI-based patrolling technology. RADDOG is an unmistakable security presence that deters trespassing, covers tough terrain, and patrols parking lots and other large properties. 

RADDOG also promises to be an excellent security application for observing and analyzing potentially perilous situations. With remote control capabilities, these devices may scout ahead of human security and law enforcement units to provide situational awareness and protect human lives from danger.

Light My Way: Peace of Mind, Remotely

It’s common for employees to fear walking to their car alone in the dark. 63% of women say it makes them feel unsafe—more than almost any other daily activity. RAD Light My Way offers your organization a way to enhance nighttime security beyond light posts and security cameras.

The solution is put directly in the hands of your employees, tenants, and visitors: A mobile app coordinates with live remote monitoring to virtually escort individuals to and from their vehicles. Lights brighten, LED messages scroll across RAD units, and the mobile user can even communicate live with a remote security officer who has access to all available cameras.

Using the AI that empowers RAD to strengthen organizational security across all device types, Light My Way takes safety to the individual level and exemplifies the customizability RAD offers.

Types of Security Robots

Stationary Surveillance Icon


Stationary robots surveil designated areas, detect security-related events, and communicate threat responses to human staff and other authorities.

Artificial Intelligence

Artificially-intelligent security robots are equipped to interact with people. For security guards, robotic devices are a resource for automating surveillance, sending messages to people within the robot’s field-of-view, and initiating immediate threat responses.

Mobile Devices Icon

Mobile Devices

When mobile monitoring is preferred, patrolling robots take surveillance on-the-go with route learning and interactive communication. Mobile devices may connect with the public even more closely along patrol routes; concierge services and panic buttons for calling human staff are just a sample of the ways patrolling robots support security procedures.

Why Us

Why Choose DK Security & RAD?

Established in 1995 by two highly credentialed leaders in federal law enforcement, DK Security is Michigan’s largest local security company and one of the 50 largest security firms in the United States. Additionally, we are proud to be a WBENC-certified woman-owned and woman-led organization, and were ranked by Crain’s Detroit Business as the 19th largest woman-owned company in Michigan (2023).

RAD is a leader in artificial intelligence for the security industry which works to redefine existing security guarding and monitoring systems. Its suite of stationary and mobile robotic solutions are designed to complement human personnel in situations suited for cost-effective machines.

At the core of the RAD technological system is what we call ‘autonomous response’—the AI-powered device’s programmed or learned reaction to events and conditions. While traditional security cameras only record video for later review, stationary and mobile RAD devices detect and respond to security concerns in real-time.

All RAD technologies, AI-based analytics and software platforms are developed in-house. RAD is an American company that values partnerships with local organizations, making DK Security—Michigan’s largest locally owned security firm—a great match for the shared mission of creating safer workplaces and communities.
