No doubt they'd be recommending an IP based CCTV solution too, using ACPO approved IP cameras (with built-in microphones) that will fit nicely on your already compromised home network.
They'll all need to be mini PTZ cameras too, in order for the GCHQ voyeurs to scan around looking for naked chicks.
Of course, if we stated we'd like to set up surveillance on the idiots who come up with this garbage, on a 24x7 basis, watching them, following them and their families everywhere they go, they'd soon have us locked up.
It's a funny old world!

Yeah, he's advising 'private CCTV' and this generally involves paying a private company to store it. The cameras are motion-triggered and then whatever is recorded is stored off-site at a price. If you think about it, burglars would just steal the set-top box that stored the data and make cameras redundant.
Footage has to be stored at an unknown location...not in the shed, garage or spare room.
'Private CCTV is completely unregulated. Recommending greater use of CCTV to gather more images of people's faces – often innocent people's faces – undermines the security of each and every one of us.' Read more: www.dailymail.co.uk... Follow us: @MailOnline on Twitter | DailyMail on Facebook
The industry isn't 'completely unregulated.' It's in its infancy with no great checks and balances that define who owns the footage and no definitive framework for who accesses the footage.
52 city cruisers, and formed a partnership with a New York City security company that could allow detectives to view live feeds from security cameras at private businesses around the city, Booker and Police Director Samuel DeMaio said during a press conference this morning. www.cctvcorp.com...

I have a far better solution to home security:
- It works around the clock, 24/7, 365 days a year
- It forewarns you of anyone lurking around your home instantly
- It doesn't require batteries
- It doesn't depend on the power grid to work
- It's uber cheap and easy to maintain
- It doubles as a friendly, loyal companion
- It has four legs, a fur coat, and big lovable eyes
- It's bark is worse than it's bite
- When a burglar hears the sound it makes, they tend to choose a different house to invade
- The only peripherals required are a couple of food dishes, a leash and collar, a squeaky toy, and maybe a rawhide or two
Can you guess what home security system it is ?
