Drones for Home Surveillance and Security
Last month we discussed smart doorbells.
This month we’re going to talk about the benefits of using drones for home security.
What Are Home Security Drones?
Drones are often used in military operations, scientific research, and other industries.
Did you know that they can also be used for home security?
Drone security systems offer an added layer of protection over traditional home surveillance systems. Key features include motion detection, 24/7 monitoring, and more.
Autonomous home security drones can even be triggered by sensors. For example, movement near a boundary or entrance to your home can cause the drone to lift and patrol the area. The drone will then send live photos to your mobile device, keeping you informed of any movement on your property.
Drone Regulations and Privacy Implications
Round-the-clock monitoring may sound appealing—and it certainly is. That said, there are a number of regulations to consider before moving forward with a home security drone.
First, it’s important to note that all home security drones must be registered with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) if the drone weights more than .55 pounds and less than 55 pounds.
Second, it’s important to respect your neighbors’ privacy. Be sure to keep an open line of communication with the people around you, and let them know that while you’re using a drone for home surveillance, you have no plans to violate their privacy.
If you’re curious about whether to invest in a smart doorbell or a home surveillance drone, each system features a unique set of pros and cons. The decision is ultimately yours, although there’s no reason not to consider both solutions (if your finances allow).
