What Are drones?
More formally known as an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) or unmanned aircraft system (UAS), a drone is effectively a flying robot that is navigated using a GPS tracking system from the ground. As well as being remotely controlled, drones can also fly autonomously through a software-controlled flight plan.
In recent years, drones have increased in popularity as new models and types have been released. What was once seen as a piece of technology used only by the military, is now used within a growing number of industries, as well as for personal use.
WHAT ARE DRONES USED FOR?
Drones can be used for a whole host of uses and applications. Some of these include:
- Attack drones
This type of drone is only used by the military and is equipped with weapons, which can be used for controlled airstrikes.
- Delivery drones
Used by some big shipping companies such as Amazon, delivery drones are a new way of delivering items to customers.
- Surveillance drones
Equipped with cameras, surveillance drones can be used across a number of industries, such as law enforcement, sports, forestry and farming.
- Photography and videography drones
Before drones, aerial photographs had to be taken above from a helicopter or airplane. However, as technology has evolved, drones can now take high-quality imagery and videos without the expense of hiring a manned aircraft.

The Advantages of Security Drones
Mobility and maneuverability
Unlike traditional CCTV systems, drones, by their very nature, are extremely mobile and maneuverable pieces of kit, allowing them to capture footage from almost infinite vantage points. This is particularly useful to security companies as it allows them to capture high-quality footage across the entire site and are not restricted by fixed CCTV camera locations. Drones can also capture footage from much higher than most CCTV camera locations, which gives an unbeatable perspective of the site and what’s happening on it.
Impossible for intruders to plan against
Another advantage of the mobility of drones is the surprise element. We know that professional thieves will usually carry out a period of observation on their target sites to try and identify what security measures are in place. Clearly, a drone doesn’t have a fixed position, so is impossible for them to feature in the intruder’s detection avoidance plans.
Aiding in identification and prosecution
As a result of the drone’s maneuverability and exceptional camera technology, the operator is able to accurately position the drone and take high-resolution video and still images of the perpetrator at work, which could be particularly useful to the Police with identification and eventual prosecution.
Using drones for night patrols is not a problem either. Today’s equipment now offers fully integrated, dual-function cameras to record both visual footage (up to 4K definition) and thermal footage, allowing you to detect specific heat signatures on night patrols – for example, the presence of an intruder within the site boundary. Furthermore, some of today’s drones can also be fitted with a spotlight and/or loud speaker, so the drone operator is able to notify the intruder that their crime is being recorded.
