ReadySight robot navigates rocks, rugs and all sorts of indoor and outdoor terrain.
Company Six recognizes that we are only as strong and capable as are each individual on our team. We are lucky that so many of us have nearly a decade of experience working together, building and selling more than five million robots.
This month as we welcome a new member to the Company Six team, I have a chance to reflect on one of the Company Six core values, that of teamwork. People join our team to do their best work while also living their best life. In order to build a reliable robot for people with dangerous jobs, to provide a solution and safety to those who keep our communities safe, we need each team member to bring their full self to their role. That means fostering an environment where each team member can shine, collaborate, and innovate until we reach our collective goals.
I am excited to announce that Carie Lemack is joining Company Six as our Chief Operating Officer. She has experience growing innovative, impactful teams, as well as a passion for the safety and security sectors in the U.S. and abroad. Carie’s ability to distill messaging, grow ops teams, and do whatever is needed to succeed will help our team as we grow.
I and the entire Company Six team are thrilled to have Carie join us on our mission to provide the tools first responders and others with dangerous jobs need as they keep our communities safe. We have other openings - if you are someone who cares deeply about creating robots that help save lives, who is a team player and enjoys wearing many hats to achieve our goals, and finally who has a commitment to being part of a thoughtful, ethical and inclusive workplace, we invite you to apply.
BOULDER, Colo. (Nov 24, 2020) -- Company Six is unveiling its rugged ReadySight robot and cellular service that gives first responders and professionals with dangerous or difficult jobs an extra set of eyes.
ReadySight is a rugged one pound, throwable, mobile video robot with unlimited range. It streams video over dedicated first responder and commercial LTE networks. Controlled by the user’s smartphone, ReadySight can stream to unlimited web viewers, so whether they are across town in a command center or across the globe everyone is getting the information they need to make decisions in real-time.
Everyday video streaming usage plans will start at $99/month and first responder plans are$149/month and include unlimited streaming over priority networks and a free replacement robot if ReadySight is lost in the line of duty.
“Making a small, portable, video enabled robot has really been a goal of our founding team since 2012 while we were at Sphero - but the networks and core technology simply were not ready,” said Jim Booth CEO of Company Six. “Having used robots in the field while in the Army, they can be large, expensive and difficult to operate. What we’ve built is unlike any tool out there at a fraction of the price - truly to the point that they can be expendable if necessary. We want to put our robots in the hands of the many - not the few. We want our users to have all the information that is possible before they put themselves or others in harm’s way.”
The technology integrated into the ReadySight robot will allow for day and zero light usage, autonomous and semi-autonomous operations, two way audio communication and unlimited range and usage over nationwide LTE networks.
"A tool like ReadySight is what we've been wanting for years. A low cost, expendable, throwable video robot, that runs over the cellular LTE network. In many critical situations our police and fire first responders incur the risk of 'going in blind' to an uncertain situation. ReadySight is a game changer for these situations where more information is needed quickly," said John Abbey, retired Chief of Police from Silicon Valley and public safety innovator.
ReadySight has an endless number of use cases from accident investigation, exploring tight or unknown spaces before someone enters, even acting as a sentry to keep eyes on a critical area such as a crime scene.
First customer shipments are expected in Q3 2021.
