Security drones have been growing in popularity, and it’s easy to see the initial appeal. They claim to be great for surveillance, and advanced models can even be used alongside technology that recognises vibrations and movement. They increasingly being used by homes and businesses, and there’s plenty of choice on the market at a variety of different price points. But are they really worth the hype?
Our security officers don’t have a battery life
Drones cannot offer the same 24/7 security that our manned guarding service doesn’t for the simple reason that they will run out of battery and need to be recharged. Whilst our security officers may need to recharge with a quick cup of coffee, they can still be on site, patrolling, all hours of the day and night, depending on your security contract.
Motion sensors are reactive, not proactive
Whilst motion sensors with alerts to your smart phone sound brilliant, let’s consider the logistics. You’re at home, your drone is on site. Your phone beeps, alerting you to movement at your business premises. Turns out it was a cat… or maybe even a bin falling over, false alarm. What if it did capture someone trying to break in? They are already there, and you now need to alert the police. It’s reactive. The damage is already done. Our manned guarding service offers a proactive solution, as nothing with deter criminals more effectively that having feet on the ground.
Let’s assume you’ve remembered to turn the drone into night-mode, enabling it to pick up images in darkness. The clearer the image, the more expensive the drone, as night vision is often an extra cost, or extra investment. All of our security officers come with night vision… a torch. That’s right, at no extra cost to you, our security officers are able to see in the dark!
Our security officers don’t invade anyone else’s privacy
One of the major concerns with the use of drones is the invasion of privacy to surrounding land. If your office is surrounded by a housing estate, can you be sure that the footage captured by your security drone isn’t invading the privacy of your neighbours? Our security officers will only patrol your business premises, that’s all we need to do to keep your assets safe.
We operate within the confines of the law
Security drones can be tricky when it comes to rules and regulations. With our professional security service, you can be confident that our security officers understand exactly what they can and can’t do. They understanding trespassing law, they understand how to legally restrain someone until the police arrive, and they undergo regular and extensive training to ensure their knowledge remains up to date.
