Using thermal imaging technology to identify potential heat loss in homes and buildings, its drones are able to canvas an entire street at one time, making it up to 10x faster, and up to 75% more cost effective than traditional methods.

Due to its ability to survey homes on a mass scale, the company is expected to be an invaluable resource to housing associations and property developers alike, who will benefit from the reduced carbon footprint it facilitates, in addition to the time and cost savings.

"It really comes into its own when canvassing banks of houses, providing a safer and simpler solution than traditional methods, removing the need for scaffolding and workmen when first assessing a building, and providing the added bonus that no physical access to the property is required.

“The accurate data provided from one of our drone surveys would enable a housing association or property owner to see exactly where a property is losing heat, effectively ruling in or out damp and/or poor cavity insulation, and enabling them to make an informed decision as to what to do next.”

In addition to thermal imaging the drone is able to create 3D models, providing data for dilapidation surveys, compliance checks and it’s all geo-fixed meaning it cannot be altered or brought into question.
