This new home security system is centered around a flying camera drone

The military has been using drones for surveillance abroad for years, and now Sunflower Labs is looking to bring the same approach to home security. The Sunflower Home Awareness System makes use of solar-powered “smart lights” that work in concert with a flying camera drone to keep an eye on your property.

The system is based around the lights, which each contain more than a dozen sensors. Once a number of them are installed around the property, they work together to detect motion, vibration and sounds. When the network detects an event, the system sends the owner an alert that can be dismissed if there’s nothing to worry about or the user can choose to deploy the flying camera for a closer look at what’s going on.

The quadcopter carrying the camera automatically heads to the location of the detected event, using the smart lights as navigational beacons, and sends back live video to the user’s mobile device. It’s kind of like a flying version of the Ring home security system.
