KATY, Tx. - Unmanned aerial vehicles, or drones, are a pretty common sight these days, and for enthusiasts, that`s good news. But some aren't in love with this evolving tech.  Sure they catch amazing video from incredible angles, but not everyone wants to be on camera.

To self-regulate, some of the industry`s manufactures have joined up with, where you can register your own address as a 'no drone zone.'

It takes the longitude and latitude of your property, and enters it into a database that can be loaded onto drones.  This protects the property with an invisible barrier that prevents drones from crossing. It just hovers there, and won’t take off from inside.

While keeping a cone of silence over your property might seem a bit extreme, not even the White House is safe from drone drama. Not long ago, one crashed on the White House lawn, causing the Secret Service to put the whole place on lock down until they could clear the scene. Maybe the President Obama's family should think about signing up 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
