A company called Sensity Systems is using "smart" LED lighting called NetSense to set up a national surveillance network.
The name of the new national surveillance network is called SkyNet.
I'm joking, it's called NetSense.
"Sensity's NetSense Partner Program is designed to accelerate a global ecosystem for the Industrial Internet of Things ."
"The company [Sensity] targets malls, universities and cities..."
According to the Daily Mail, "smart" lights are being touted as security devices that can assist with 'Homeland Security' measures by providing applications like video surveillance and motion sensors.
NetSense enables security solutions in environments such as parking lots and garages, college and corporate campuses, and city streets where there is a need for enhanced security, asset protection and perimeter detection. What they're really saying is, they're quietly installing a nationwide smart LED lighting surveillance system!
Sensity's "smart" LED lights are being installed in airports across the country.
"Using an array of sensors and eight video cameras around the Newark Airport terminal, the Sensity light fixtures are part of a new wireless network that collects and feeds data into software that can spot long lines, recognize license plates and even identify suspicious activity, sending alerts to the appropriate staff."
The airport has installed 171 "smart" LED lighting fixtures, attached to the ceiling, that peer down and record the movements of passengers and staff.
Las Vegas's "smart" LED lights can record people's conversations.
“This technology, you know is taking us to a place where, you know, you’ll essentially be monitored from the moment you leave your home till the moment you get home,” said Daphne Lee.
"At what point do we say this is the land of the free," Lee said. "People have a right to a reasonable amount of privacy."
