There you suffer from the problem that magnets, as far as awesome powers go, suck. Their range is not good - certainly you're looking at 10' or less to attract robots of any significance (drones).

As far as electronics: magnets aren't actually terribly bad for electronics, and all you have to do to protect against them, generally, is put a ferromagnetic metal box around your electronics.
