    Youth hacked PC, used GPS to track—father

    5 12 2008

    Parents have generally been granted permission to monitor their children’s location through GPS tracking, but what happens when the younger generation turns the tables, and then doesn’t like what it finds? Nothing good, at least not here.

    Nice to know our youth is taking basic ideas to the next level…..

    GPS Tracking – not a Option?

    7 11 2008

    This story appeared in CNet – Dec 2005….

    From the article “state says the GPS bugs must be made tamper proof and the vehicle should be disabled if the bugs are disconnected” AND “No policy bans police from automatically sending out speeding tickets based on what the GPS data say.”

    read more | digg story

    Mandating GPS tracking on vehicles does push the boundaries.  When the concept an “outside” source would have the potential to “tap into” this recorded data under the mask of Public Safety, the question of “Self” responsibility has to be asked. 

    These ideas only dampen the growth of this new market.   There has to be a clear line between “personal” and “business”.  Using the technology to better control a fleet, lower operation cost along with improving the overall functionality and re-defining a Dispather, should still be a choice business owners can or cannot deploy.   As far as the general “public”, don’t even get me going….

    Though I do agree that any municiple vehicle should be.   How many times do stories hit the headlines of abuse.  Another words, clean up your own yard before you start pushing your ideas on me.

    ASIS 2008 – Security Seminar

    29 08 2008

    The most common question we field on a daily basis is helping individuals understand the basic differences between Standalone DVR and a PC Based DVR card.

    Just when you thought that could come down to some simple comparisons, the industry informs us that NO there are many different approaches. Anyone with the opportunity to attend this year’s event or better yet is serious about finding new solutions that are available to your particular need, should make every effort to attend this show.

    Surveillance / Security / Access Controls / CCTV / Biometics and yes IT Security are all coming together at one main event to show case the new products and where the industry is headed.

    The one event we have ear-marked is on Tuesday, September 16, 2008 between 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. The precise location will be Room C304 (Building C, Level 3) within the Georgia World Congress Center. Apple to co-host panel on future of video surveillance. As I have posted before on numerous other blogs and forums Apple has yet to open the gates for iPhone. Currently the majority of products run on a Windows platform an seem to be heading toward Open Source.

    We bring this up as the main point of consideration when considering the type of solution you looking at. Will it be easy to upgrade the system in the “NEAR” future. Can multi-systems co-exist amongst each other? What is the real depth of “proprietary” solutions?

    The basic limitations with standalones:

    • requires a Static IP for remote access – additional $30 a month from your service provider.
    • adding addition camera’s – not possible
    • browsers or menu’s used have limitations to type of control and viewing

    PC Based solutions on the other hand:

    • use your current IP for remote access
    • additional camera’s – add a card
    • vendors are starting to open up the ability to work with different camera’s
    • real time recording and play back is far greater

    The use of surveillance has taken on new meaning in todays business. What it needs to explore and market is an alternative use. The current task facing the industry is funneling multi-XML feeds to one control panel. This way no-one is tied to one particular vendor or camera. My concern is turning the process around. How many of you really know what turned Feedburner into a Google purchase. When they turned everything around and “PUSHED” feeds, the birth of Broadcasting.

    We have not seen any results of Apple’s effort to stream live Olympics feeds and I doubt this seminar will provide any announcements pertaining to it. But what they have accomplished is creating a 2nd vehicle that will compete with main stream media. Let’s face facts, outside the US because the lack of cable infrastructure and land-lines in general, a cell is the most common used accessory, an Apple wants iPhone to be the choice.

    After all these years of computers (PCs & Servers) finally getting narrowed down to a couple of name brands, Surveillance Security solutions show up with 10K vendors each clawing for their piece of this exploding market.    So don’t feel alone and confused, it’s my business of choice and I’m going bald…..

    Wireless camera at it’s finest….

    5 08 2008

    Yes, the next level of home security or should we say Social Security.

    Note the power cable.   Now I have a problem.  The camera obviously is connected beyond the fence line.  In all fairness, if this is a wind-screen on a tennis court next too a public facility that has additional camera’s, so be it.

    If not, thanks for lowering the common sense level.   This is not a proper example of how to use this technology, UNLESS IT IS YOUR PROPERTY.
