Drones in private security today represent an incredible help for both Security Forces and all those in the private security sector. 

These UAVs are proving to be very practical in detecting criminal activities, as well as helping to solve cases by providing decisive evidence. Consequently, more and more companies specialising in the sector are turning to this equipment.

The use of private security drones brings many advantages, on the one hand for the surveillance of large areas of outdoor terrain and, on the other hand, for maintaining control and protection of certain areas. 

The greatest benefits are that this type of UAV has a much wider field of view than traditional video surveillance cameras, and can move more quickly to effectively achieve the objective previously established by the operator.

How important are drones in security?

Drones have become an indispensable tool for public and private security teams. Drones in security have significantly optimised the most diverse areas of action. UAVs can move quickly and reach areas that are difficult to access, being able to fly over uneven or rough terrain and overcome any type of impediment. This type of resource, thanks to its advanced technology, provides quality images and captures all kinds of data from the view of an aircraft.

What are drones in security for?

As mentioned above, thanks to their advanced technology and huge development, drones in security have endless possibilities, and can be applied in a variety of situations. Here, at HPDRONES we provide some of the main uses of this type of UAV.

Help with inventories. Its displacement allows you to reach hard-to-access areas or carry out a more meticulous control of material in storage and logistics warehouses, among many other tasks.
Control of large areas and/or areas of difficult access. Using aerial image, drones allow monitoring of very large areas without difficulty of displacement. They are, therefore, a very useful and versatile solution for the surveillance of properties, industrial parks, golf courses or marinas, among other examples.
Surveillance in rural farms. The agricultural sector is a major beneficiary of this technology, which detects even the most imperceptible threats to the human eye, such as rodents entering cultivated areas.
Infrastructure review and damage to industrial buildings. Drones in security provide the possibility of carrying out effective studies on the scope of storms, as well as other natural disasters. All this is carried out by programming day and night routes with filming.
Environment. Drones are also used to support audits and controls. Drones are also used to support audits and internal controls in the areas of environment, waste control and fire prevention.

Use of drones in private security

People’s safety is always important, regardless of the field we are in. However, more and more drones are being used in private security.

Although UAVs are not yet very present in security companies, it is undeniable that they are part of the future of the industry. However, the specialisation of security guards is considered essential to be able to carry out surveillance using these unmanned aerial vehicles.

These unmanned aircraft sometimes weigh less than 3 kg. They are capable of reaching 65 km/h, land and take off vertically and offer high-resolution images.

Despite some limitations in areas with flight restriction and flight autonomy, with new associated technologies such as, for example, the new DJI Dock system, drones have proven to be an efficient means in surveillance, reducing operating costs and increasing results.

The DJI Dock allows the automation of surveillance routines, with real-time and high-resolution transmission to a control centre. The DJI Dock is robust, reliable and built to operate 24 hours a day. 

With the information described above, it proves a current trend around the specialisation of security professionals in the manoeuvrability of this type of drones. Investment in this type of UAV is essential to ensure the safety and well-being of all.
