Creepy, Creepy Drones

DronesI’ve been predicting for a couple of years, now, that Homeowners Associations would eventually begin using drones to gather private information on members of the neighborhood. And they will.

The story linked below is about a Seattle man who used a camera-equipped drone to peer through a third story bedroom window of a neighbor. It’s beyond creepy. But it’s exactly what’s coming to a Homeowners Association near you.

If your HOA president hasn’t yet used a drone-carrying camera to spy on you, your lady friend, or your kids while they’re sitting in your private backyard hot tub, just wait.

Only a matter of time.

Trust me.

    My neighbors; Edith and Louis would love this drone idea. They have a tripod with a camera set up in their garage. My life is so fascinating they don’t want to miss one move I make. Photos were taken of my house and the photographer just happened to turn his view finder enough to catch them hiding in their garage while filming my house. I always wondered why every time I walked outside or a car pulled into my driveway their garage door went up. Can’t people like this find ANYTHING else to do with their lives? I read where “Meals On Wheels” needs drivers, perhaps they should apply?
