There’s now a non-violent way to stop drones from flying over your home

Stop Drones From Spying On Your Home

One problem with drones these days is that they can be used for spying purposes — not for NSA-like jobs, mind you, but simpler jobs such as peeping on your neighbors. Luckily, TechCrunch reports that there’s a way of stopping drones from flying over your house and potentially infringing your privacy in the process.

A new website called lets anyone quickly enter their home’s GPS coordinates to register their interest in having their properties be made unreachable by drones. The site only allows one registration per person with no questions asked. If you want to enter more than one address, you’ll have to provide proof that you actually own the property that you’re submitting for review.

The GPS database is then shared with drone and software makers, who will then create a no-flight zone over your house for those drones. As the publication reports, there are plenty of drone makers that have already decided to cooperate with, but some of the biggest sellers, including DJI and 3D Robotics have yet to confirm their participation.

The drone makers that have agreed to work with so far include  EHANG, Horizon Hobby, DroneDeploy, YUNEEC, HEXO+, PixiePath andRCFlyMaps.
