Over the past decade, the number of active shooter incidents in the United States has grown exponentially. According to fbi.gov, there were 214 fatalities from active shooters in 2016, which jumped to 729 just one year later. Most of these shootings (62.8%) occurred in businesses and schools.

However, the reality is active shooter incidents can happen anywhere at any time – meaning no place is immune to an active shooter event.

Memoreyes’ Unique Outdoor Video Surveillance Systems are Totally Wireless


Memoreyes’ Unique Outdoor Video Surveillance Systems are Totally Wireless | #Memoreyes #TpromoCom #WiFi #VideoSurveillance | The use of outdoor WiFi is often unreliable. But the engineers behind Memoreyes’ unique outdoor video safety systems have solved this problem, providing reliable, steady wireless connectivity between the Model 360 and 100 camera systems. No wires means no trenching and lower installation fees.

The Camera Housing

  • The Entrance System Housing contains seven cameras and two to three micro-computers.
  • Four cameras document cars as they enter, pass by, and depart; and the other three read license plates, including the detection of vehicles that travel the wrong way through an exit.
  • The All Property System housing is a 12’ tall “candy cane” that houses an HD camera, 2 micro-computers, and the Camera Director System.
  • The system runs on low voltage power (no 120VAC power install requirements), and it wirelessly connects to a NVR (Network Video Recorder) through Ethernet radios.
  • Camera housings are weatherproof, including sun shades and are rated from -20°F to 120°F.
  • Anti-tampering features detect camera-pole shaking, which initiates a local verbal warning through an in-housing speaker. This action also directs other cameras in the vicinity to video the event.

The legislation is meant to address concerns about the accuracy of technology and put a stop to creeping surveillance culture, said supervisor Aaron Peskin, who introduced the ordinance.

Investigator Says Amazon Chief’s Phone Hacked by Saudis

Investigator Says Amazon Chief’s Phone Hacked by Saudis | #TpromoCom #Amazon #Hacker #CyberSecurity | Everyone’s a target sometime when it comes to cybercrime. The art of avoidance where it involves hackers is certainly of great value as we move further into the 21st Century world of digital thuggery and political terrorism.

Here we have a high official with Amazon, Jeff Bezos, who’s cellphone was allegedly hacked by a foreign entity for what could be construed as an effort to uncover the identity of the individual that murdered a Saudi journalist. Bezos owns The Washington Post which investigated the murder.

“Bezos hired Gavin de Becker & Associates to find out how his intimate text messages and photos made their way into the hands of the Enquirer, which reported on the Amazon chief’s extramarital affair, leading to his divorce,” says the author of the Security Week story below. The moral of the story is to trust no one, not even your own mobile device. —Al Colombo

The investigator hired to look into the release of intimate images of Jeff Bezos said Saturday he has concluded that Saudi Arabian authorities hacked the Amazon chief’s phone to access his personal data.

Gavin de Becker linked the hack to extensive coverage by The Washington Post newspaper, which is owned by Bezos, of the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the kingdom’s consulate in Istanbul last year.
