LOS ANGELES, Nov. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Galileo introduced Alpha, the first autonomous drone for property security. It uses advanced technology like LIDAR, wireless charging, and an IR camera to give the user unlimited camera angles, quick response times, and a situational awareness only possible from the sky. The Alpha is now available for pre-order on Indiegogo.
"I'm thrilled to release the Alpha after a year of development," said Joshua Sanabria, Galileo's CEO. "Speaking to customers and security providers about what they need in a new device has lead our work from the start."
Galileo sees the Alpha as an essential tool for commercial and high-end residential customers to reduce false alarms, keep guards out of harm's way, and improve security decision making.
"This is the future of security," said Mike Jackson, President of Security Research Group.
The Alpha flies autonomously to conduct scheduled patrols and respond to alerts from a user's existing security system or Galileo's sensor nodes. When Alpha responds to an alert it begins streaming audio and video to the user's smartphone and security provider while flying above the alert area.
"The user is now empowered to take action and get the complete story about what is happening on their property," said Joshua Sanabria, CEO of Galileo.
The Alpha will flash its lights and play messages designed to scare off intruders. The user can also talk into their smartphone and out through the Alpha if they have some choice words of their own.
After the intruders have fled, Alpha autonomously flies back to base to charge and be ready for the next alert. Alpha gives you smarter camera angles and drastically quicker response times by combining automated patrols, way-points, and object tracking.
This versatility has the potential to make the Alpha a pioneering product in the drone and security market. Visit GalileoUSA.com/indiegogo.
