Should you be investing more into the ‘drone’ market?
06 September 2017
The capabilities of drones go way beyond a fun gadget to fly around in the sky; here are some of the reasons why you might want to invest in them.
Amazon is testing the drone market at the moment - they’re planning on using ‘beehive-like’ structures to make deliveries in cities. While we perhaps can’t all follow in Amazon’s footsteps at that scale, we can use drones to our advantage - it just depends on what works for you as a business.
The capabilities of drones go beyond a fun gadget to fly around in the sky to spy on your neighbours; they’re far more advanced these days. The imagery produced by a drone can reach up to 5.2K in videoing with 20 megapixel photos using a 1-inch sensor. To put that into context, 5.2K is better than the ultra-high-definition on your television screen, it’s that good. These drones are also fast, with 360° vision and have two operation systems so that you can concentrate on flying while taking exceptional video footage at the same time.
Still thinking this can’t help you? Well, here are some of the ways a drone works, and some reasons why you might want to invest in them.
The beauty of images from above are unmatched, they can capture entire plots of land in one shot or give artwork the imagery it deserves. Now that video content is taking over how we use the internet, most companies are bringing some sort of videography to the table, but to stand out you need to invest in the best.
Aerial video separates you from your competitors and gives that edge to your marketing materials. You will have to invest in a professional CAA approved company such as Sky Revolutions but the conversion rates from producing a unique perspective of your business can be huge.
Drones can be used as security guards, according to The Balance:
“One such system from Sunflower Labs integrates a drone with sensors so that when a possible trespass takes place the drone is notified and activated.” The drones can capture live video footage of intruders, which can be transmitted back to a laptop or smartphone. This can be used as evidence or the user can notify the police while keeping an eye on the intruder. The Balance also reports that drones can monitor other threats to buildings such as fire devastation and floods before they become a problem. Live video feeds and alerts can be sent directly to the business owner or to emergency responders. If your business has this extra security, it could lower premiums on your insurance and protect you from potentially costly accidents.
From checking roofing on a home to a field of tulips, drones can get to places far faster that people without putting anyone at risk. Construction companies have been using drones for some time now and farmers are beginning to see the advantages. “The UK drone sector is witnessing sustained and remarkable growth,” says Ben Gorham, whose company Sky Revolutions uses drones for various drone surveying applications. Drones can detect conditions of land, buildings and even go under water so whatever your application, drone surveillance for quality control may work for you.
