Re: drones
Drone should get safer eventually but I think they will always present a security concern.

Re: drones
@maryam, @freehe:

I will join you two ladies with similar feelings about my reservations about drones.

On the other hand i keep hearing plans at diffreent levels on making use of drones for good reasons. Recently herad on news about using drones to take areal pictures of accident scenes on roads which would result in big chunk of costing for police department as they normally use a police helicopter which would cost dearly. I felt that is really a good way to pratically use drones.

Re: drones
There are many people who feel the same way even if I were assured that the drone was performing a needed task I would still be concerned about malfunctioning drones causing injury to property and people..

Re: drones
@mhhf1ve , I disagree, I think doing so will cause a lot of confusion. Many are stil confused and not sure exactly what IOT is. I think there should be a clear distinction of what IOT is and what it is not. I would rather them say that IOT can be used with X devices such as smartphones, computers, sensors etc. versus saying and IOT device.

Re: drones
@maryam@impact , this is a good point. They probably would be suspicious. I am suspicious when I see a drone flying around in my neighborhood.

Re: drones
@dcawrey, LOL! I agree. They are trying to use the term IOT for everything and that is not right. You have to break down the information into the simpliest terms for decision makers if you want to influence them.

Re: drones
@Ariella, I hadn't thought of those uses either. If they are used effectively I can see the benefit. The problem comes  in when they are used maliciously. In addition, standards and laws need to be created for using drones.

Re: drones
@mhhf1ve I agree with you, although here's betting there will be marketing geared towards the IoT of cars and drones in the future. I think it's going to be worth it for sales and marketing guys to try to lump these all in with one another.
