Once docked, power to the drone’s camera is blocked and during flight, the drone will make an audible noise to alert you. This way, you never have to worry about recording the drone while you are not in the know.
The Always Home Cam also has obstacle avoidance technology, which will prevent it from crashing into anything (or anyone). If this were the case, the drone would only be 5 x 7 x 7 inches and have grilles to block the propellers, so it is unlikely to do much damage.
When the drone detects movement, or when one of your other Ring Alarm sensors or cameras issues an alert, the drone will fly on a predefined trajectory to check near the alert for the source of the disturbance.
A security camera replacement?
Indoor security cameras from most companies, including Ring, have a resolution of 1080p and a field of view (FOV) somewhere in the range of 100 ° to 145 °. Some pan and tilt. But none of them can get up and steal to find a burglar.
To completely protect a home, you need multiple security cameras for each room. This can make the Always Home Cam attractive because it can keep multiple rooms at once.
However, the fact that he only flies for up to five minutes at a time, and spends most of his time at the dock, shows that he won’t. replace a home security system that offers 24/7 motion detection. It is much more likely that increase it, rechecking blind spots and helping to check parts where you don’t want permanent camera power.
