A homeowner’s greatest fear is an unwanted intruder and invasion of their privacy and property. Burglar alarms, fences, and locks on doors are deployed in homes across the world to prevent crime and protect families and their belongings. As more drones take the skies in neighborhood parks, playgrounds and rooftops, a homeowner’s airspace is now at risk of interruptions and spying.
As much as private individuals want to protect their property, it is a federal crime in the U.S. to interfere with or tamper with a drone in flight. As a drone is classified in the same way as passenger aircraft in the eyes of the FAA, and with many other global aviation regulatory bodies, actors outside of the military cannot strike down or capture a drone. Individuals can take action against spies on their property by integrating a proactive detection program into their existing security system.
For individuals whose privacy is constantly compromised, whether through stalkers or paparazzi, drones now provide what a helicopter or telephoto lens cannot - discretion and swift action. When photographs of celebrities and politicians are being monetized, a drone could not just mean a spy is in the air.
Their well-being would suffer if they could not enjoy the comforts of their own home and yards. Private individuals experienced multiple drone incidents firsthand in the first half of 2017, and were involved with the following activities:
