Governments and the military use unmanned aerial drones all the time, but there's going to come a day very, very soon where the normal person will be able to hire out one of these drones for use.
Of course, it all starts in Japan with Secom to soon lease out surveillance drones to clients in 2014. The drones will be dispatches out the second a break-in or other similar crimes are detected, where it will jump into the skies and patrol the area. The drone will have a much better chance of getting footage of the event, compared to traditional fixed-place cameras.
The drone will track motion through it's built-in laser, and they should hit rental abilities by April 2014 for around $58 a month. Not too bad at all, if you ask me.
