November 4, 2017 macroswiss 0

The application of security drones for business and industrial establishments could become a reality in the future since they provide foolproof protection. The speed of Wi-Fi communication between the drones and control stations determine the success of the system. The essential parts of the drone are its cameras, sensors, onboard computer and the rotors. The lithium batteries allow a flight time between 12 minutes and 45 minutes after charging for 1.5 to 2 hours. Many of the systems don’t have option for additional batteries. The range of control varies between 1KM and 4KM. Future Drones – An Overview Drone Flight: – The future drones need to have extended flight time since the security concerns will be to increase the surveillance hours. Drone Feasibility: – Speed and movement control has to be based on the situation at the surveillance spot. Transmission of real time videos and sensory signals can invoke the warning alarms at the installed security locations.

The infrared based motion detector can scan and sense the intruders trying to enter your premises unlawfully. The equipment design efficiency enhances the distance and the nature of objects being detected. Moreover the system should be able to differentiate the normal movement of people and pets from the suspicious movements clearly. Advanced systems make it possible to attach the detectors on walls and fences. The focus angle can be from the vertical, horizontal or diagonal (angle of focus can vary from 10 to 450 or 460 to 890). The scan range of the detector can be customized to cover the radius of few meters to few kilometers, depending on the nature of potential threat to the lives and property. Intensity and Sensitivity – Programmable Features Intensity The intensity of the detecting depends on the reflexivity of the focus and reflection beam to certain extent in the traditional systems. The modern systems have eliminated this option and introduced detecting position of the intruding object. The time taken for the reflecting waves to reach the sensor emitters can determine the efficiency of the detector. The enhanced intensity can result in accurate detection within few micro seconds. Automated connectivity with the warning system […]
