Low cost drones with HD cameras are good for photos and security in 2023. Site Security, Home Security, Nature, Family.
The Computer Dudes, Inc was asked by a client for an affordable Drone Solution to Enhance their Site Security.
We came up with a low cost "Tethered Drone" System using inexpensive / disposable drones. We have enhanced our drone system with a tether which allows the drone to safely
hover in place at a fixed height. The tether version 1.0 allows the drone to fly in weather where other drones cannot. It also prevents the drone from being taken by a big gust of wind.
We are releasing Version 1.0 to the Public, Corporations, Schools, Government, Real Estate, Small Offices, Construction Sites and Homes.
Computer Dudes Tethered Drone Observation and Security Enhancement:
1) Select a Large Drone with a good camera - A controller and cell phone controls are the best. We tested several models all under $100.
2) Purchase a 100 foot roll of Paracord - Cut one piece of Paracord to a 50 foot length. Then cut four 1 foot lengths out of the extra cord.
3) Purchase or make a Stake to drive into the ground with an eyehook.
A) Tie or Secure 1 foot pieces of paracord onto the Drone Landing Gear. Then tie the pieces together at the other end for the "harness"
B) Tie 50 foot Paracord to bottom of harness
C) Launch Drone - set it to "Maintain Position"
D) Clip or tie paracord to Stake in Ground
E) Depart Area
F) Operate by Phone from safe distance. Use Phone to capture and send photos, videos, and panorama's
Daytime Operation is recommended, but the same procedure should work at night if you have night cameras on your drone.
After you have the drone you like - buy a spare one or two and you have a full system good for a decade or so.
Go use it to secure your Homes, Businesses, Schools, Construction Sites, Shopping Areas and even at the Beach.
Version 2.0 has a power harness option. You will have to contact us to purchase version 2.0 and 3.0 or a custom rig.
Most Drones do not require a harness and many have single button functions like launch and land or take panarama or even follow me modes.
You can use these kind of un-tethered drones to do most of the above too - the tether just helps with wind and remote operation.
Every home, school, business and the rest should also have an emergency plan - such as where to gather if there is a fire and multiple exits from the buildings
and properties so the fire department and EMS can get onsite.
The Byars Family Motto is: "Always Prepared" which you can see on our Coat of Arms. - We share that with you too.
