3D Printing’s Impact On The Security Camera Industry

What do you do when you want a sense of security but don’t want to shell out big bucks? Print your own dummy security camera with a 3D printer, obviously.

That’s precisely what Dr. Özkal Özsoy did. Dr. Özkal Özsoy is an electronics engineer, product design consultant, and inventor based in Istanbul, Turkey. With his knowledge, experience, research, and 3D printer, he set out to build his own dummy security camera.

He began by researching different security cameras and which design would best deter criminals and intruders from targeting his apartment. Once he decided on a model, he scaled it down so that all 3D printers on the market could print it, but this move also saved materials.

Because of its hollow interior, it’s possible to house an actual wireless security camera within it. The dummy camera is divided into four different parts for easy assembly. He also included four holes for 3mm LEDS, and used a wide angle, LED collimator as the lens. These parts make the dummy camera much more believable.

Security cameras, whether dummy or real, can be a great way to avoid becoming a target. Most criminals will avoid security cameras, as they can produce evidence that may identify them.

Public Surveillance and Security Cameras

Security cameras can put your worries at ease. You can actively monitor what’s going on at your home or property whether you’re there or not. You can even store your recordings for later review. Thanks to new innovations, some security cameras can use facial recognition and motion sensors to alert you when something suspicious is going on. If these security cameras can make you feel safe at home, why not extend this protection to the public arena?

It is met with some hesitation, but public video surveillance can be a great help when crimes occur, and even in prevention of crimes. Studies have shown that when people know that they are being watched, they tend to modify their behavior to what is acceptable. Because surveillance cameras can produce evidence, criminals will likely be deterred from acting on their impulses. In areas with high crime rates, installation of public surveillance cameras could possibly help crime rates drop.

If a crime has occurred, public security cameras could provide crucial evidence to verify witness accounts and identify the wanted suspects. Some law enforcement have even set up private security camera registries for their local areas. These registries are voluntary and can help keep your neighborhood safe. Your private security camera footage could assist authorities is capturing a potentially dangerous person.

While security cameras are not the answer in eliminating crime or stopping crimes all together, they can play a very vital and important role. The use of public surveillance or even a registry of private security cameras for law enforcement has already proven itself. Countless crimes have been solved, partly in thanks to surveillance footage helping to identify the suspect and providing evidence and important details of the crimes.

Why Do We Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day?

St. Patrick’s Day is fast approaching, but before you get ready to celebrate, do you know what you’re celebrating?

St. Patrick’s Day is the Roman Catholic Feast day to honor St. Patrick (Patricius in Latin), Ireland’s patron saint, who was actually born in Britain.  At the age of 16, St. Patrick was kidnapped and sold as a slave in Ireland. After six years, he was able to escape and return home. He remained in Britain to study for 14 years, and then went back to Ireland to spread the Christian faith. It was this work that earned him the title as patron saint.

Shamrocks are closely associated with St. Patrick because he used the three leaf clovers to explain and illustrate the Holy Trinity. When these shamrocks sprout an extra leaf, as in four-leaf clovers, they are said to be lucky. Their leaves represent faith, hope, love, and luck. It is often said that four-leaf clovers are more common in Ireland than any other place, giving birth to the phrase “the luck of the Irish.”

Security Surveillance Systems Capture Ghost Walking Through Disneyland

You may have seen this before, but Disneyland surveillance footage from 2009 has resurfaced showing what looks like a ghost roaming around the park after hours. Could it be?

It may take a few views to see what everyone else is seeing, but a spooky apparition appears to be roaming around the empty amusement park near the Haunted Mansion and Rivers of America area. Could he have escaped the Haunted Mansion to enjoy the park to himself?

There is plenty of speculation on what this could be, ranging from Walt Disney’s spirit to the unknown. Others more practically infer that a reusing of VHS surveillance tapes produced this strange and ambiguous footage. We understand this video is old, but if Disney is still using VHS tapes to record and store their surveillance footage, they may want to upgrade to digital video recorders or network video recorders.
