Will Drones Protect Your Smart Home?
Alarm.com unveiled its drone based, non-invasive, smart surveillance system called the Insight Engine at CES 2017. Smart security cameras and alarms have limited range of surveillance. The Insight Engine is an adaptive program which can learn your family’s daily routine schedule and alert you upon deviations. Whenever any disturbance is detected, automated drones equipped with high resolution cameras are deployed at the suspect area and provide live feed on your smartphone.
Combining automated drones and an adaptive security system gives you two major advantages. Because the drones can fly, any room with an open door is within their reach. The Insight Engine can leverage Alarm.com's suite of sensors to help direct the drones to the area of the disturbance. From there, the drones can sweep the room, leaving no corner unchecked.
There are other potential application of the drone like detecting a dripping ceiling. The only current drawback of the Insight Engine is the navigation of the drones. False alerts can be generated by drones accidently bumping into other objects. If the navigation is precise and effective, the Insight Engine will be an instant hit.
