So, there is a story here on the local news. Seemingly a bunch of boxes have been springing up on the light posts around a town here. No one knows what they are or where they came from. Of course conspiracy theories are being brought up. Here is a link. Any thoughts?!? They seem to have cameras and antenna on them.


***MOD EDIT***
Not an Introduction Thread (Live link removed)
*Closing Thread*


The Introduction Forum is for introductions To tell something about you; not to start a thread about a topic.“Intro threads” that are really “topic threads” will be removed.
Welcome to ATS, it’s time to introduce yourself.



You have posted what could be a very interesting topic in the "Introductions thread". This area is solely for introducing yourself (as you can see by browsing through other Introduction threads by new members). We apologize for this inconvenience, but its a necessity for a website as large as ours. After you have managed to get 20 posts under your belt, you can then start your own threads in their appropriate areas.

Strict code's like this are in place to help keep the machine 'running smoothly'. One of these policies is that members need to post their thoughts in the appropriate areas. I'm sure you'll understand the necessity for us having rules like this. It helps keep all the great threads and topics in their perspective areas of interest and not all lumped together, making it difficult to find when wanting to make additional comments.

With that said, I'm going to have to close this thread as it does not comply with the above stated rules. After you have managed to get 20 posts under your belt, start your own thread in one of the appropriate areas as we'd love to hear more on this subject you originally posted.

Thread closed, you can contact me by a private message for more information if needed after you have read the links provided above and in the final post below. Or you can also contact staff by alerting them here Complaints and Suggestions

I live in Upstate NY (syracuse) and find this extremely disturbing! Wth! Heating & A/C capabilities, with the ability to transmit? Holy cow!

Sorry I put those cameras up myself. Seriously though the "without authorization" leads me to think Black Ops looking for someone or something. They look quite expensive. If I were in an area with those cameras and no marking or trace of ownership I would certainly have a some spare electronic parts shortly thereafter......

Huh. I WAS thinking speed/ticket cameras, but without authorization, hmm?

Well, that all says one thing to me: target practice.

From the back, of course - where the bastards can't see you.

This is very interesting. The idea that these camera boxes have been going up without permission is very telling indeed.. Or maybe someone didn't do their paperwork. In any case, Like another poster said: those can't be cheap. The fact that there have been so many of them found and a few removed (with a big thumbs up from me!) tell me whoever is behind this has a great deal of money to toss about and wipe their arse with.. I'll keep and eye on the story -And my telephone/electric poles. Not in NY myself, but it won't be long now till cameras are everywhere both the legal (debatable..) and illegal alike it seems.

The guy had it right. The feds are testing out security equipment, getting a feel for our reaction and the technical performance. Pretty soon, they'll rebuild it and unveil a "new" security camera that will be on every corner...supposedly only activated by certain circumstances, or triggered by security personal with stringent guidelines to follow, but in reality, they are activated whenever there is motion, or whenever the agency feels like it.

1984 feels closer than ever.

I was SOOOO surprised to click on northcountrynow as that is where I grew up. I have relatives in the area as well. Seeing its proximity to the Candian border it makes me wonder if that has something to do with why these areas would be being watched.

I would doubt it has air conditioning. Its probly air monitoring and connected with a CCTV camera looking for bomb scents. What does it say about DHS not getting it back or even stopping them before taking it down?
