The Problem with Dummy Cameras

Many of the dummy cameras being sold today have batteries and flashing strobe lights included. We strongly recommend that you resist and do not use this needless feature. Of the tens of thousands of security cameras on the market less than 1% ever have any kind of light visible let alone “flashing lights” in the front of the camera.

Is Your Mobile Phone Bugging You? (Seriously.)

Is your mobile phone acting “funny,” or not as fast as it once was? Have you noticed that someone seems to know more about what’s going on in your life than they should?

Both are different in use and theory, but in both cases they’re a security threat and nuisance. Continue reading
