Alarm.com has announced plans to develop autonomous, video-enabled drone applications to extend the capabilities of smart home and business security systems. Alarm.com’s multi-sensor awareness and property intelligence, together with the Qualcomm Snapdragon Flight drone platform, will deploy drones to investigate suspicious activity. The drones will autonomously navigate through the property and provide a high-resolution video feed to the property owner.
Alarm.com’s Insights Engine also applies machine-learning algorithms to the data set generated by devices and sensors in a connected property.
By recognising activity patterns and detecting anomalies, Alarm.com can respond to events on behalf of the user.
Opt-in privacy controls will enable the property owner to share the video feed with a central monitoring station and emergency responders if desired.
