Insurers Access Streaming Drone Video Via DropIn Mobile App

Staff Writer | December 15, 2016

Insurance company and claim professional customers of DropIn Inc., can now order on-demand, live-streaming drone video of properties to be assessed or damage to be estimated via the DropIn mobile app.

DropIn provides two-way audio with less than one second latency live streamed from a drone, and is a provider of live video and still-image capture via drones and smartphones for the property and casualty insurance and automotive industries. DropIn’s mobile-to-mobile access to on-demand drone live video is delivering more benefits to the insurance industry. 

“Insurance underwriters, claim managers, and field adjusters want to provide the best possible service for customers and close cases faster,” says Louis Ziskin, CEO for DropIn. “Never before have key stakeholders in the insurance process had the ability to order drone video exactly at the first notice of loss or when a new business application needs to be processed in real-time. The DropIn mobile app puts our insurance customers in control by enabling drone live video to be ordered and viewed on a mobile-to-mobile basis.”

The broader high-definition still image capture and live video streaming capabilities of the DropIn Platform make it possible for insurers to better manage the underwriting evaluation and claim adjustment processes. Insurers can directly order image capture through DropIn’s crowdsourced network of independent operators (Droperators), dispatch an adjuster for image capture or rely on an internal or external adjuster to order drone footage in the field via this new mobile feature.
