Consider 2 million Alexa customers have registered for Alexa Guard thus far.— Brian Roemmele (@BrianRoemmele) September 24, 2020
Guard+ expands capabilities to a new level with a flying in-home Alexa security drone.
The subscription basis of Alexa is just starting.
You are subscribing to AI power.
Amazon is first to know this. https://t.co/B4oTiXpXep pic.twitter.com/vHRTdxhZ2B
I keep reading that Amazon has released an indoor home surveillance drone and it seems to be real and yet I absolutely refuse to believe it— Casey Newton (@CaseyNewton) September 24, 2020
Ok this is one of these ideas that’s either absolutely brilliant or really stupid:— Marques Brownlee (@MKBHD) September 24, 2020
Ring’s new indoor drone security camera
Instead of getting multiple security cameras… get 1 that flies around your house 🤔

Amazon was one of the first companies to understand the subscription to computer power on a mass scale.— Brian Roemmele (@BrianRoemmele) September 24, 2020
What most of Silicon Valley missed while listening to the wrong folks is that the #VoiceFirst revolution is about the subscription of AI power and thus far Amazon owns it. https://t.co/NNzmjv7MST
Want. Unclear if it's Tesla's LTE or its own though.— Artem Russakovskii (@ArtemR) September 24, 2020
The first compatible vehicles for Ring Car Connect are @Tesla models 3, X, S, & Y. Watch Tesla Sentry Mode and recorded driving footage in the Ring app over wifi or from anywhere via LTE (with an optional connectivity plan). pic.twitter.com/rbf5seP4Ep
I'll say my usual “creepy!” to Jeff Bezos recording me, but *if* one wanted to see inside their home while away, I guess I'd prefer this over permanent installation of cameras in living rooms: you'll at least know when you're being recorded. https://t.co/MEQQ5DKXJz— Tony Webster (@webster) September 24, 2020

Amazon appears undeterred by its emerging reputation in consumer tech: creep.
My 1st impressions of Amazon’s new security drone, car camera and swiveling speaker, which push the boundaries of surveillance — againhttps://t.co/S0lT3a5RSu pic.twitter.com/xfAMmssZU2
can't wait for amazon to have a detailed map of the inside of my house and recommend me products for each available surface— Tim Haribo (@tbarribeau) September 24, 2020
Ring is a pernicious surveillance system & widespread adoption is going to cause tremendous collective harm to privacy & civil liberties. I've been trying to anticipate the next step in the function creep + normalization slippery slope shuffle. Beyond my dystopian fears! https://t.co/uKwdBymhTf— Evan Selinger (@EvanSelinger) September 24, 2020
This is a way to get a 3D scan of your house. Will be very important for augmented reality glasses and shopping apps. This will be able to make an inventory of everything you own, too. I can just see the promotions from Amazon now. https://t.co/BCbRGEEuuq— Robert Scoble (@Scobleizer) September 24, 2020
To decipher the significance of this drone, we need to look beyond its functionality. If lots of people buy it that risks further normalizing domestic drone surveillance. And if Ring can travel around the house today, future products might be designed to travel elsewhere.— Evan Selinger (@EvanSelinger) September 24, 2020
Potentially very unpopular thought: the drone is only slightly more intrusive than an indoor camera. And in many ways less so — because at least when you’re home, you can hear it. Cameras just have a little status light.https://t.co/bx2P2fm5qe pic.twitter.com/VNnl59AIfN— Dieter Bohn (@backlon) September 24, 2020
Ring has announced a new drone camera that autonomously flies around your house while you're not home, monitoring it for suspicious activity. Not sure how I feel about it but this thing would make my dog go bonkers. It will be available next year for $250.https://t.co/aGjatHbc67— USC Psycho 😷 (@uscpsycho) September 24, 2020
Now, in 2020, a home surveillance drone conceived of just fourteen months ago seems both more prescient and problematic. Who, exactly, is the technology going to help the most? To put it bluntly: What happens if the intruder is also the police? https://t.co/BYB4GAD2ex— Lauren Masks Are Goode (@LaurenGoode) September 25, 2020
Here in Jefferson Sq Park where authorities on rooftops are peering down at demonstrators protesting Breonna Taylor decision. People here feel pain, betrayal.— Maria Sacchetti (@mariasacchetti) September 24, 2020
Protesters shouting they know they’re being watched. “Come off that roof,” one man shouted. https://t.co/bf0wsHwYcE pic.twitter.com/PgbqrybefY

Amazon's new drone reminds me of something @pierce used to say: the company's dream is to deliver you a new light bulb the very moment the old one goes out.— nxthompson (@nxthompson) September 25, 2020
Now, with possible video of all your broken lightbulbs, the dream gets closer.https://t.co/tYXPSflVlx
