The Sunflower Home Awareness System promises a new approach to home security. “The system consists of these two parts,” founder Alex Pachikov said. “There are really advanced sensors that you place around your property. These can detect motion, vibration and sound. In the event that you want to take a closer look at something, you can then deploy a drone to investigate what’s happening and send back live video. It’s truly a next-generation security system.”
This idea could not have existed three years ago, but thanks to advances in drone technology, sensors, and internet connectivity, this system is now becoming a reality. The biggest challenge is battery life for the drone, which is still relatively short. However, the drone won’t fly for very long on each deployment and it automatically recharges between missions.
