DroneWatcher launches for Android
DeTect has released its DroneWatcher application for download onto selected Android devices.
The app enables users to use Android devices to detect UAS flying in civil airspace for personal and business privacy protection.
Depending on the strength of the device’s WiFi signal, the DroneWater app can detect up to 85 percent of non-encrypted WiFi or RF controlled drones at ranges from a quarter to half a mile. The user receives an audible and visual alert when a UAS is detected.
On the upgraded Pro version, users can group multiple tablets and smartphones together to form wide area mesh networks for monitoring of large areas. When one device detects a drone, all devices in the group will be alerted. The Pro version also displays the make and model of the drone detected and logs its unique ID number to a database; and includes a ‘power bar’ that allows the user to determine the general direction of the detected drone’s controller.
For added, multi-layer security, the DroneWatcher app can integrate with the company’s DroneWatcherRF and DroneWatcher Drone Surveillance Radar sensors to provide a more complete drone detection and defence solution.
