IT and Security Professional

Recommended Posts

I own a business that develops and manages IT solutions for other businesses. Security camera systems are a small support section of the business and I found how drones are being used for these applications across many sectors.

I mostly joined for some direction. I want to see how feasible building drones to do patrols around a property focusing on specific points of interest every hour or so. This also lead me to the idea of developing a landing dock/pad for a dispatch and return home station that would also charge the drones while not on patrol.

The last big idea is event reconnaissance. Say a motion sensor or a perimeter sensor trips and one or multiple drones are dispatched to investigate.

Aside from that I am a programming enthusiast. I primarily work in PHP and SQL but Python was my first language several years back.

Very excited to join the community!

Interesting background.  I started 35 years ago writing assembly-language math libraries for supercomputers :).

Skydio and First Iz are moving along the lines you mentioned, to name a couple.  Autonomous drones for event recon is interesting, but approval to fly over people may be challenging.  

Good luck!!

My plan is not to necessarily fly over people. The intent is to essentially do a follow-me mode using facial/human recognition like some selfie drones work to get active evidence of intrusion or harassment.

I also should note this will not be a service sold to customers, but to protect and monitor my own business and private property.
