Amazon gets US patent to use delivery drones for surveillance service

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.
