Was at a flea market/antique mall today and saw these, don't think they will be catching anyone!

The thing is, they had a functional system in place, why not power these up and use em?

Obviously not convinced they'd be any use, its that attitude we don't care to pay money to a technician to fix the problem then they'll moan and groan when something happens that might have been recorded but for their laziness or greed.

Ive see cameras with cut cables at the rear with a sign beware CCTV Recording it's laughable.

The Appearance of security, rather than actual security.

More like hope of the somewhat mythical "deterrence" instead of evidence.

Thought it was about time I added some of my horrific discoveries
This one where the client was too mean to pay someone's time to remove the old camera

I'm sure the installer was being sarcastic when he did this..... this

And this one where no attempt is made at all to keep the cables tidy is made. Image

And the dildo that installed this used a single pair for video and a single pair for power and cut the remaining pairs away?????????
Image

Image

And this one is more common that I care to remember, surprisingly common condition though
I arrived and was told this is where the CCTV will go (Oh Boy)

Check out this one. Have fun trying to figure out what each cable in there does.

A spinkle of parmesan and you're all set for dinner.
The most puzzling thing about my second picture is that it worked flawlessly for 5 years according to my client?

Customer: "Hey. I want you to add one camera to my system, and while you are there, maybe you can clean up the wires a little bit, it's not bad, just a little bit messy"

Ok, no problem.....I take out the ceiling tile, and almost got a concussion :shock: !!
