In the event of unexpected activity in the home, a drone could be deployed automatically when Alarm.com. Navigating via Qualcomm's Snapdragon flight platform, it would hover through your home to the relevant sensor, and send you an HD video feed of the cause.

The Insights Engine, meanwhile, is another proactive safeguard that uses inferential intelligence. It's a new machine learning capability that recognizes and proactively responds to unexpected activity by sending you a smartphone alert about what's going on.


Its Unexpected Activity notifications alert homeowners to potentially dangerous situations before something bad happens, rather than afterwards. Homeowners with children will find these especially useful, as kids tend to be curious and full of surprises.
