Insurance Companies Want to Speed Up Claims Processing Using Drones
During the past few years, insurance companies like Allstate have been using drones to inspect homes for storm damage.
One reason is that inspecting home rooftops is one of the most dangerous jobs.
Homeowners can themselves hire professional commercial UAV / Drone pilots to perform inspections prior to emergency situations. In fact, Insurance companies recommend the home owner records all their valuable purchases. Make sure your drone pilot is certified by the FAA, request to see their certification card.
Following hurricanes Harvey and Irma last year, Commercial UAV Pilots helped insurance companies take aerial photos of damaged home rooftops. After snapping the pictures, the drone can wirelessly transmits the images, as well as video, to data centers, where machine learning technology helps identify damage to homes.
