Drones will keep an eye on your home from the inside out


In a recent post, I wrote that drones are the key to our future, and their presence will be noticeable in our everyday life. After the announcement of Alarm.com during CES 2017, I’m convinced more than ever that it’s truth.

The company is building a security system where UAVs are playing a key role. The system will automatically detect intruders, alert you and give you a real-time video stream to your smartphone. What’s unique is that it will work both outdoors and indoors. In order to allow autonomous flight inside buildings the drone will require some smart software and built-in cameras that will allow detection of other objects. All this will be powered by a Snapdragon processor, designed exactly for that purpose.

Using data from other smart IoT home devices (lights, locks, cameras), drone will respond and fly where irregularities were detected. The system recognize abnormalities  such as unusual people or activities. Cool! Most of the time, drone will be on standby mode, thus saving battery. 

The official release is not yet know, but the goal of Alarm.com is to launch the product at the end of the year. It may be a perfect gift for the next Xmas!

What defines me is a mix of curiosity combined with a bit of of fun. I believe that the spatial data and the technologies associated with them are what I'm looking for. Fortunately for us, we live in times where the exchange of digital information blossoming before our eyes. That is why, I am here with you, sharing my fascination with all that is "geo", because I know that the interaction with others is what shapes me every day.
