Alpha is a more sophisticated version of a drone that you’d find in stores. This model uses sensors that you place strategically around your home or property. When the sensors are triggered, Alpha will lift off and perform a perimeter check to find the assailant.

All of this is done for you in real time, and you can even communicate with the system.

Lights will flash down on the intruder, and a pre-recorded message can be played. Audio and video will be streamed right to your smartphone. You’ll be able to talk directly into the app itself, and this will be broadcasted directly from the drone, alerting the intruders that you have them in your sights.

Everything will be recorded in real-time so that you have your proof when the cops come.

When the drone is done detecting an intruder, it will fly back to its charging port, which is a Qi wireless charging station. Using magnets, your drone will be charged wirelessly and ready to go the next time an intrusion occurs.

Security never sleeps, and now your drone won’t either.

Flight is done autonomously. You’ll set up perimeters using Galileo sensor nodes you place around your property.

Utilizing the latest in camera and GPS technology, your drone will fly around the unit without entering into another person’s property or going outside of the zone. This ensures that your drone can fly properly without ever hitting an object in the process.

And remember that this is all done through a motion sensor that Galileo offers. You never have to engage the drone on your own if you don’t want to.

While charging is done wirelessly through 16 different transmitters, you also have the option of plugging the unit into the wall to charge it faster. Using a low-illumination IR camera, this unit will be able to see in the dark and detect unwanted guests.
