Hakimo, a tech firm that claims it is dedicated to modernising physical security through AI, has raised $6m in new funding led by Rocketship.vc.
Also participating in the round were Neotribe Ventures, defy.vc and Firebolt Ventures as well as new investors Carrier Global Corporation and physical security industry entrepreneur John L. Moss.
The Hakimo platform uses computer vision and machine learning to automate the monitoring of physical security sensors such as cameras and badge readers. The platform also provides an option to communicate warnings through speakers when it detects unwanted activity such as a person entering an area where they do not belong.
This combination of automated monitoring and response helps security teams save time and money while proactively deterring and preventing security breaches from occurring.
In addition, Hakimo natively integrates with most enterprise video and access control systems to provide a unified solution that responds to alarms automatically, exposes potential insider threats and detects faulty cameras and door hardware.
The company will use the new funding to accelerate product development and expand into new markets.
Hakimo CEO and co-founder Sam Joseph said, “Hakimo provides a much-needed automation platform that helps a wide range of organizations improve security in this resource-constrained environment. We’re proud to be transforming the industry and are grateful for the support of our customers, partners and investors as we continue on this journey together.”
Back in November 2021, Hakimo landed $4m in seed round financing with the aim of bringing cyber-like tools to the workplace.
