    1080 with no gimbal ??

  2. Vee Macks on April 25, 2022 at 6:20 pm

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

  3. Ninja 87 on April 25, 2022 at 6:20 pm

    Here we are, three years later, and NO UPDATES.. =(

  4. fish and banana on April 25, 2022 at 6:21 pm

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

  5. stanford shultz on April 25, 2022 at 6:23 pm

    How does it handle wind and rain.

  6. aaron Anderson on April 25, 2022 at 6:23 pm

    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.

  7. Holly Elizabeth. on April 25, 2022 at 6:24 pm

    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.

  8. robopam on April 25, 2022 at 6:25 pm

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

  9. RUFF- on April 25, 2022 at 6:25 pm

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

  10. Simon P on April 25, 2022 at 6:26 pm

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

  11. Nathaniel Lo on April 25, 2022 at 6:26 pm

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

  12. Raymond on April 25, 2022 at 6:29 pm

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

  13. Gregory on April 25, 2022 at 6:29 pm

    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?

  14. Light WickEr10 on April 25, 2022 at 6:29 pm

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

  15. Optical Flow Drones on April 25, 2022 at 6:30 pm

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

  16. Will Dwyer on April 25, 2022 at 6:31 pm

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

  17. Mikko Paakkola on April 25, 2022 at 6:34 pm

    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.

  18. Richard Wilson on April 25, 2022 at 6:35 pm

    What is this the millionaire detective balance unlimited ? Lol

  19. Robert Montgomery on April 25, 2022 at 6:35 pm

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

  20. alvine5 on April 25, 2022 at 6:37 pm

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

  21. JoFo1274 Jofo on April 25, 2022 at 6:38 pm

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

  22. Anthony Sicily on April 25, 2022 at 6:38 pm

    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.

  23. bsnarm on April 25, 2022 at 6:38 pm

    Umm what about rain???

  24. James Dash on April 25, 2022 at 6:39 pm

    Junk,,,,,PURE JUNK

  25. Daniel Salinas on April 25, 2022 at 6:39 pm

    Im Daniel Salinas do they record

  26. Jay E on April 25, 2022 at 6:42 pm

    All I want to know is can it be fixed shoot a lasers? And speak? "Halt I am Robo drone" 😆 🤣

  27. CalebEliason on April 25, 2022 at 6:43 pm

    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.

  28. Frost Soul7755 on April 25, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    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 ?

  29. olajide paris on April 25, 2022 at 6:48 pm

    Can it at least call the police?

  30. Benjamin Franklin on April 25, 2022 at 6:50 pm

    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

  31. willemsw on April 25, 2022 at 6:51 pm

    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.

  32. Alex Alexandrov on April 25, 2022 at 6:52 pm

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

  33. walter Monteiro on April 25, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    I WANT TO BUY ONE FOR A PROJECT.

  34. Joey Anderson on April 25, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    What’s the cost

  35. Daniella Tousson on April 25, 2022 at 6:53 pm

    I went to the sunflower site and configured a package. It is not good for acreage. One needs too many ‘flowers’ as their radius is only 40ft – 500$ a ‘flower’.

  36. Wellington Vitor on April 25, 2022 at 6:53 pm

    Price?

  37. Cj James on April 25, 2022 at 6:53 pm

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

  38. Gregory on April 25, 2022 at 6:55 pm

    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.

  39. Daniel Salinas on April 25, 2022 at 6:59 pm

    Im Daniel Salinas do they record

  40. Osvaldo Calles on April 25, 2022 at 7:00 pm

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

  41. ky sputnik on April 25, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    Add a taser

  42. Gadget Show Tech Unboxing Reviews on April 25, 2022 at 7:03 pm

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

  43. Daniel Howard on April 25, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    Yeah but what if the drone gets stolen?

  44. fungoorstitch on April 25, 2022 at 7:10 pm

    So much for Tremors 8.

  45. Christos Volikakis on April 25, 2022 at 7:10 pm

    I wonder how they work in Highwind areas?

  46. Andrew Brandt on April 25, 2022 at 7:11 pm

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

  47. Erwin on April 25, 2022 at 7:11 pm

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

  48. Mikko Paakkola on April 25, 2022 at 7:11 pm

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

  49. cem batur kemikkiran on April 25, 2022 at 7:12 pm

    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.

  50. Snabbe_Fabbe on April 25, 2022 at 7:14 pm

    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)?
