Japanese home security firm Secom says its surveillance drone would be helpful in factories or other large facilities where stationary cameras aren’t able to cover everything. Rentals won’t begin until around April 2014, and will cost about 5,000 yen (approximately $58) per month.

Secom, one of Japan’s largest home security firms, announced it plans to rent the world’s first private security drone with state-of-the-art software and surveillance camera.

With its small helicopter-like blades, the flying drone can record intruders and transmit live video footage. Secom Spokeswoman Asuka Saito says the company’s online security systems automatically detect unauthorized entry, then the flying robot is used to quickly determine what’s going on at the scene.

The drone features a set of four rotors and was modeled after similar equipment made by Germany’s Ascending Technologies. The drone weighs only 1.6 kilograms (3.5 pounds) and measures 60 centimeters (23.6 inches) wide.
