The Internet of Things (IoT) didn't just create smart houses and enable predictive analytics for industrial applications. Sometimes, all those things happen at once.

According an AT&T spokesperson, "AT&T and Dedrone are teaming up to deploy IoT sensor technology to protect against malicious drones. Powered exclusively by AT&T, and using sensor data like radio frequency, visual, and radar, Dedrone detects and classifies approaching drones, pinpointing their locations and triggering alarms to alert security."
