Amazon's New Security Drone Flies Around Inside Your House

•, Ben Warren

The tiny drone, called the 'Always Home Cam,' is being marketed as a mobile security camera that takes the place of installing multiple cameras across your home.

"It's not practical to have a camera at every angle in every room of the home," said Ring's founder and CEO Jamie Siminoff. "Even if you had unlimited resources, I think it's still not practical."

"What I love about the Always Home Cam is that it really does solve this problem of being one cam for all – it allows you to now see every angle of the home, in every part of the home."

Ring Inc., a subsidiary of Amazon, is a home security and smart home company popularly known for its doorbell that also has a camera on it.

Also, the drone can't be manually flown, but does require the new owner's 'help' to map the home layout before use.

And like Ring's doorbell, the Always Home Cam allows its owner to view a livestream of what is going on at his or her home while away. See the (silent) promotional video below:

Ring wants to bring security camera drones into households with "Always Home Cam"... a scary step in the future of tech?
