Sunflower Home Awareness System Is The Future Of Home Security

sunflower-home-awareness-system

If you live in the kind of property that Mr. Burns might’ve lived in, you might be in the market for a serious security system. Well, it doesn’t get much more impressive than the Sunflower Home Awareness System. Why? Because it comes with its own autonomous drone. That’s right, if something triggers the alarm, you’ll immediately be notified on your smartphone and you’re then free to deploy the drone. It will fly around your property and send back a live feed, so that you can see whether you’re dealing with possible intruders, or if it’s just the neighbour’s dog who wandered into your yard again. A set of ‘Smart Lights’ that you place around the yard serve as motion sensors, as well as pleasant illumination.

Pricing or availability hasn’t been announced yet, but you can pay $25 to reserve yours today.

In fact, its makers explain that it should just be a quick two-screw job for about 90% of US-made deadbolts.
