According to a new patent awarded to Amazon on June 4 by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) could “perform a surveillance action” over the home of an Amazon customer. It’s being dubbed as “surveillance as a service,” is a disturbing reminder that corporate America not only wants to monitor your search trends and social media posts but now wants to monitor the outside of your home.

A network of delivery drones would film Amazon customers’ homes from the skies while on their way to delivering packages. Artificial intelligence will observe the property for anything unusual during the flyover, such as broken windows, doors left open, and unauthorized people on the property. Customers can request security flyovers hourly, daily, or weekly, the patent said.

The patent explained, depending on the drone design and its sensors, still images, video, infrared, night vision, audio, and or real-time could be multiple monitoring types under the new service.
