    What’s the point? Why would anyone be discouraged by a drone – nothing more than a flying CTV camera. Why wouldn’t I just buy a traditional security system which is, as you say, available at the same cost (and tested)?

  2. James Dash on November 9, 2021 at 9:21 am

    Junk,,,,,PURE JUNK

  3. Anthony Sicily on November 9, 2021 at 9:21 am

    Crap promo video
    Camera footage is very poor
    And base station location is just stupid, it needs to be roof mounted so it can not be damaged by the intruder.

    But it is a neat idea.

  4. Light WickEr10 on November 9, 2021 at 9:21 am

    Hold on, go to 0:37 and pause the video…
    Don’t you see something mysterious in the sky?

  5. Leandro Garcia on November 9, 2021 at 9:23 am

    It should have a alarm noise if you wish to activate it and maybe sensor lights for night time pointing at the person or the thing moving

  6. Nathaniel Lo on November 9, 2021 at 9:25 am

    So you’re telling me that a a burglar isn’t gonna notice a drone and a big grey box…

  7. Gregory on November 9, 2021 at 9:27 am

    Now I’m waiting to see the next generation of this drone that comes equipped with a high-powered laser dazzler to blind intruders before proceeding to launch wired taser-darts at them to stun them for long enough for police to arrive and make the arrest. The problem with all of this is, where does the ramp up in lethality stop?

  8. Simon P on November 9, 2021 at 9:29 am

    And how much will this cost? Not cheap, I bet!

  9. Alex Alexandrov on November 9, 2021 at 9:30 am

    blue ray burner laser assembly and remote trigger for it. Then we have a proper fun system

  10. aaron Anderson on November 9, 2021 at 9:33 am

    I had this idea, but my drone system would notify the police by sharing live video feed, and the drone would launch and return from the security company location, so it couldn’t be sabotaged on customer property.

  11. Daniel Howard on November 9, 2021 at 9:33 am

    Yeah but what if the drone gets stolen?

  12. Optical Flow Drones on November 9, 2021 at 9:34 am

    1080 with no gimbal ??

  13. Benjamin Franklin on November 9, 2021 at 9:36 am

    Sort of stupid cuz it can’t work in bad weather and someone can easily cover the base that it sits in and not let it open up

  14. stanford shultz on November 9, 2021 at 9:37 am

    How does it handle wind and rain.

  15. Gregory on November 9, 2021 at 9:37 am

    Professional burglars will just throw a heavy blanket over the drone’s launch enclosure, load the enclosure and drone into their van, and then proceed to steal other items from the house.

  16. Wellington Vitor on November 9, 2021 at 9:37 am

    Price?

  17. Erwin on November 9, 2021 at 9:37 am

    This is amazing, but I wonder if i will ever be approved by the FAA as they require drones be in line of sight.

  18. Cj James on November 9, 2021 at 9:42 am

    i rather buy it out right…. paying monthly for a drone no way

  19. Mikko Paakkola on November 9, 2021 at 9:43 am

    A few security cameras and motion controlled lights would achieve everything this can do and be more reliable at a lower monthly operating cost.

  20. Daniel Salinas on November 9, 2021 at 9:45 am

    Im Daniel Salinas do they record

  21. Holly Elizabeth. on November 9, 2021 at 9:46 am

    Hundreds of dollars a month! And I’m the one that has to monitor my own home security! No thanks, but let me know when it gets down to around $0 a month after I buy all the hardware, then we can talk.

  22. Christos Volikakis on November 9, 2021 at 9:46 am

    I wonder how they work in Highwind areas?

  23. RUFF- on November 9, 2021 at 9:46 am

    It should play the Battlefield 3 theme song as it slowly approaches.

  24. Raymond on November 9, 2021 at 9:48 am

    What about weather issues? Where is the link for this product?

  25. fish and banana on November 9, 2021 at 9:50 am

    Cool idea, but what if the burgler knocks down the sunflowers ?

  26. alvine5 on November 9, 2021 at 9:50 am

    I have been emailing them, and they are just not informing me about this product. They were supposed start selling in Early 2019. Disappointed

  27. Robert Montgomery on November 9, 2021 at 9:55 am

    Lame. Try it in a snowstorm or in rain or on a windy day

  28. CalebEliason on November 9, 2021 at 9:56 am

    Great idea! Especially right now, going into a massive economic collapse when more & more people reach desperation & feel like they have no other options. I bet when that suckin drone launches & starts tracking, 99.99984759% of unknown intruders (non-neighbors, non-friends, non-housekeepers, etc.), those caught off guard, will jam out faster than a hot colonic in Tijuana. In my opinion, the more noticeable the better. It’s best to neutralize the threat by scaring them away than it is to go stealth & write yourself a death sentence trying to play Captain America. Most of these big talkers wouldn’t have the cajones come gameday anyways. The best security never has to get used, intimidation factor +. Even closer to 100% of the known burglars just won’t contend with it & choose a less secure target. Unless, of course, you’re holding a rare Picasso in your basement vault that Mark-E-Mark & the Phunky Bunch would strategically plan out, rehearse in their Cooper Mini’s & execute in an Italian Job-like heist to get their hands on it. It wouldn’t pose much threat then. I mean, Jason Stathom would just send a super-fly schnooka round-house double triple kick, instantly terminating anything in the verticle surroundings. But when an O.G. is determined enough, not much is going to get in their way anyways. However, if you rock Piccaso, best be up-leveling your security game as a whole regardless.

  29. Frost Soul7755 on November 9, 2021 at 9:57 am

    lets cut the chase …
    how does it handle gun fire and blunt force objects and nets

    Can it be armed and fight back with weapons ?

  30. bsnarm on November 9, 2021 at 9:57 am

    Umm what about rain???

  31. Smart Gadget Tech Unboxing Reviews on November 9, 2021 at 9:59 am

    New European privacy laws have put a stop to cctv. Best attach a gun so no one complain when dead lol

  32. fungoorstitch on November 9, 2021 at 9:59 am

    So much for Tremors 8.

  33. Osvaldo Calles on November 9, 2021 at 10:03 am

    In Mexico if you put the drone in the yard the thief will stole the drone lol…

  34. Richard Wilson on November 9, 2021 at 10:03 am

    What is this the millionaire detective balance unlimited ? Lol

  35. JoFo1274 Jofo on November 9, 2021 at 10:04 am

    Can it follow a burglar on the run? Or in a getaway car?

  36. Zulfix Lab on November 9, 2021 at 10:05 am

    Hi can you say some thing about my channel

  37. ky sputnik on November 9, 2021 at 10:05 am

    Add a taser

  38. robopam on November 9, 2021 at 10:06 am

    More cost than benefit. Ring style system will work just as well.

  39. Optical Flow Drones on November 9, 2021 at 10:10 am

    So now when I fly my DJI drone in and around my house I’ll just say it’s a security drone 💪🏻👍🏻

  40. ITS UNKNOWN on November 9, 2021 at 10:10 am

    I would just pot something in the charger

  41. Andrew Brandt on November 9, 2021 at 10:10 am

    I didn’t see anything about the price, but I’m gonna guess and say it’s too much money for what it is

  42. Will Dwyer on November 9, 2021 at 10:11 am

    That buzzing airborne camera should be a silent airborne camera. Maintaining the element of surprise is important.

  43. willemsw on November 9, 2021 at 10:12 am

    Very cool. Home security should be multi-layered. A very nice option. I do have concerns about 4 acre size vs number of sensors. Also how will it handle mountain terrain, multi level property and differing tree heights.

  44. Grant Taylor on November 9, 2021 at 10:13 am

    for your castle states…equip it with a 22 wmr and hand held portable remote with trigger… yep…the ultimate home protection device

  45. olajide paris on November 9, 2021 at 10:15 am

    Can it at least call the police?

  46. walter Monteiro on November 9, 2021 at 10:15 am

    I WANT TO BUY ONE FOR A PROJECT.

  47. Daniel Salinas on November 9, 2021 at 10:16 am

    Im Daniel Salinas do they record

  48. Mikko Paakkola on November 9, 2021 at 10:17 am

    For this to be legal to use, the government would have to allow your neighbor to record video of you in your own private home. This can’t be legal if you have neighbors living within sight distance.

  49. Vee Macks on November 9, 2021 at 10:17 am

    Imagine a larger property with a dozen of these things all hovering above you. That’d be some scary ass Black Mirror shit there.

  50. cem batur kemikkiran on November 9, 2021 at 10:18 am

    It’s good, but not good for any security measure. If you can disable it with a blanket it’s not a security measure, it’s a kitten.
