2.4 GHz – Public Monitoring Art

Benjamin Gaulon, aka Recyclism, has an interesting hobby: For his 2.4 GHz project, he installs wireless video receiver in public space to hack into wireless CCTV cameras…

This device (which is now part of consumers popular products), can be used for wireless surveillance cameras, but it can also be used for parents to monitor their children. Such systems are becoming more popular as they get cheaper. But what most users of those devices don’t realise is that they are broadcasting the signal. (2.4 GHz Project)

Benjamin now pursues three major goals with his public monitoring art project. First, he’s using his wireless video receiver device to record footage and publish the collected movies. Second, placing the device in the street to reveal the presence of public available cameras and last but not least, he teaches participants during 2.4 GHz workshops, howto explore the CCTV wireless networks of their city.

All in all you could say, the 2.4 GHz project’s aim is to make obvious the fact that anyone can receive and abuse signals from wireless surveillance cameras! This project makes this experiencable for parents using those devices to monitor their kids – scary, isn’t it!?
