Found at a local Sonic drive in. It is seeing a good view of the pole and the roof of the gas station across from it! Wish I'd taken pics of the box cams under a gas station canopy, they weren't even in enclosures, and had lenses coated in grime!

That's more a sign of lack of maintenance, the installation looks perfectly sound to me.
Some dummy has moved the housing obviously and the owners can't be bothered to
spend money or time on getting it sorted out or their CCTV system has long since gone
out of commission.

Thats like advertising 'EASY BUSINESS TO ROB' to the criminal fraternity.

Why don't they take out a small ad in Jailhouse Times?

I'd forgotten about this thread.

Here's one I saw, and saved the picture. This was at a fast-food drive-thru... and presumably to see who is in the vehicle. Unfortunately, they mounted it at EXACTLY the right height for vehicle mirrors to hit it. :P

On the upside, it's clear those Samsung domes can take a beating!

true, it's not a bad install, but a sure sign that the system isn't ever accessed to look at footage, or it's no longer used. still careless on the part of whoever maintains it (if anyone does)

Man, I wish I had a picture of the install I saw in Newark NJ back in may.
There was an older style camera housing on the side of the building (typical heater/fan type enclosure) and then mounted on the housing itself were two bullet cameras.

Wait... ON the housing rather than IN the housing?

Yeah, they were on the housing. They were regular cheapy outdoor bullets, not box cameras that would be in a housing.
It lookedime the housing has little cameras on its back

Yeah I know there is a sort of sick apathy towards CCTV at some locations, I too hav seen cameras mounted on top of dead units, the principal being that the site operator didn't want to pay a fee for removing the old dead unit

IF IT AINT EARNING US MONEY WHY SHOULD WE SPEND MONeY REMOVING IT is the logic.
