Personal Home Drone Surveillance

Why bother with fixed security cameras when a flying drone could patrol your home? A number of new home drone surveillance startups are now testing new systems for homeowners. One example: Sunflower Labs has developed a three-part home drone surveillance system that includes flying and ground drones. Think of them as roving security guards that don’t get tired or need bathroom breaks. The system relies on “Sunflowers,” small 1.5-foot bulbs that resemble ordinary garden lights but are packed with various sensors. Placed around a home, the Sunflowers triangulate people and objects while a Bee—that’s the name of the drone—flies itself around the property to monitor activity before returning to its Hive base station.
