Amazon gets US patent to use delivery drones for surveillance service
Updated : June 22, 2019 02:31 PM IST
The delivery drones can be used to record video of consented user's property to gather data that can be analysed to look out, say for example, a broken window, or a fire or if a garage door was left open during the day, the patent described.
Any image or data that the drone captures outside the geo-fence would be obscured or removed.
Earlier this month, Amazon said it will start drones delivering packages to customers in 30 minutes or less in the coming months.
