“This integration, allowing for the automatic dispatch of a drone or UAV to a security event, is the first step in what we envision to be a robust technology roadmap, utilizing PureTech Systems’ patents related to airborne operation and detection from moving platforms, our know-how in sensor integration, use of geospatial methods, deep learning and further evolution of drone technology to bring remote security and automation to the next level.”

The first integration was performed with The PerimeterTM , a hybrid gas-electric multi-copter drone from the company Skyfront.

The Perimeter, which boasts a record-breaking five-hour endurance and 100+ mile range, will be featured with PureTech Systems’ dispatch-to-alarm capability at customer demonstrations taking place concurrent with this release.

“The combination of the Perimeter drone and PureActiv video management system is a cost-effective, scalable, and fundamentally better way to secure very large installation,” added Troy Mestler, CEO of Skyfront.

“Property owners can have eyes on the ground at the site of a breach, miles away, in less than five minutes.”

“We look forward to demonstrating this solution to customers with PureTech Systems.”
