Also known as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), drones are devices that can be controlled remotely or programmed to operate autonomously. And among their different uses, security and surveillance drones stand out. 1. Wide coverage and ease of use One of the main benefits of using drones in security and surveillance is their ability to cover large areas of land quickly and efficiently. – Drones can operate at various altitudes and fly over difficult terrain. Thus, they are ideal for surveillance of large areas such as industrial parks, borders or difficult to access areas. – In addition, their compact size and ability to take off and land in confined spaces make them a very versatile tool in a wide variety of situations. 2. Flexibility and versatility Another feature of unmanned aircraft is their flexibility and versatility, especially valued in security and surveillance operations: – Equipped with high-resolution cameras and real-time recording technology, drones provide detailed images and videos of specific areas, allowing operators to closely monitor any suspicious activity. – Drones can also be programmed to perform autonomous patrols at predefined times. 3. Reduced risks for security personnel The use of drones in security and surveillance also reduces risks for security personnel: – By employing drones to perform surveillance tasks in dangerous or difficult-to-access areas, the exposure of police officers, emergency personnel or private security guards to risky situations is minimized. – This is especially relevant in operations in rough terrain, during natural disasters or in hostile environments where personal safety is a priority. 4. Rapid emergency response Related to this last point, speed of response is crucial in emergency situations such as natural disasters or critical security incidents. – In such contexts, drones enable rescue and security teams to obtain real-time information about the situation on the ground. – This, in turn, makes it possible to make informed decisions and coordinate response operations effectively. In short, from damage assessment to search and rescue of trapped people, drones play a vital role in crisis management and risk mitigation. 5. Cost-effectiveness Finally, the use of drones translates into a very favorable cost-effectiveness ratio in the short to medium term. – Although the initial investment in equipment and training may be high, the operational costs of drones are lower compared to other security and surveillance solutions and resources. – In this sense, the ability of drones to perform multiple tasks and their low energy consumption makes these aircraft a very cost-effective option for public security forces and corps, as well as for legally established private security companies.In summary, the use of drones in security and surveillance offers significant advantages ranging from broad coverage and operational flexibility to reduced risks for personnel who must analyze what is happening on the ground to make informed decisions. SeguridadExpo 2024 In the last edition of SeguridadExpo 2023, more than 120 brands gathered to present the latest technologies in key areas such as access control, alarm systems, video surveillance and monitoring. Among these, exhibitors exhibiting state-of-the-art drones stood out: The most important international security trade fair in the country will be held once again at the Metropolitan Santiago Convention Center, from September 25 to 27. On this occasion, and as in its last version, the exhibition will present the main technologies and tools used worldwide in public and private security, becoming the epicenter of the entire security offer for the different actors in the sector.
