Can you use a drone for home security? Drone for surveillance and security: The use of a surveillance drone makes it possible to ensure the protection and safety of individuals in many circumstances while offering speed of implementation and manoeuvrability.
Surveillance missions, day or night, require precision, speed and efficiency to enable appropriate decision-making. Thanks to drones, it is possible to get as close as possible, to visualize very clearly an object located more than one or even two kilometres away. The images are recorded onboard the drone for later analysis and transmitted to the ground in real-time, on a screen or tablet, for rapid intervention.
The whole point of a surveillance drone lies in its extreme versatility. A remotely piloted aircraft (a regular term to define a drone) deploys at a very high speed. It can carry several different types of sensors: thermal camera for drones, camera with X30 or X50 optical zoom, ultra high definition camera, etc. The drone has the advantage of being able to go to areas inaccessible to humans but in addition to approaching at low altitude as close as possible to the area to be monitored.
Some surveillance drones like the DJI Matrice 210 are able to carry two sensors simultaneously which can be controlled independently. And this while having a video return of the two cameras in parallel. Thanks to this type of system, it is thus possible to couple a thermal view with another view allowing a large zoom: which is particularly useful for locating a person, in a heat zone.
Thanks to a privileged partnership with DJI, Abot is the official distributor of the Matrice range. Drones are particularly suitable for surveillance activities, capable of carrying many sensors and with an impressive autonomy (nearly 40 minutes for the Matrice 200 ).
Aware that these machines are not necessarily within the reach of all budgets, Abot also offers upgrade kits for the DJI Phantom. Transforming them into real surveillance drones thanks to the addition of a Flir thermal camera, capable of providing night vision or performing video surveillance
