They already have a small black camera on every traffic light in America....

Those little 'cameras' detect the white strobe lights on emergency vehicles and turn the entire intersection red or turn the signal in the direction the emergency vehicle is moving green.

I am wondering why Las Vegas was chosen for first deployment of these devices. Is there going to be a false flag happening there that will make the whole country see these as useful devices and then clamor to get them installed everywhere. You know, get the people on your side and have them willing police themselves.





Perhaps a false flag somewhere else, and thus they will say "See? if we had these new fangled devices here we could have avoided such a tragedy!"


ETA ~~ then that is when other municipalities begin falling over themselves to be first in line for the deployment in their cities.

I work in the remote video surveillance field and we monitor over 250 locations across the US, Canada ect.

These are not cameras or recording devices-To me they appear to be detour signs of some sort. They are installed for eye-level viewing it appears for passing vehicular traffic. Cameras would not be placed that low, and placing audio recording devices on what appears to be a heavily traveled road such as the OP's picture shows would be useless as background noise would crush the recordings.

How about this, why not watch the video on their site where they explain it...

intellistreets.com...

Now just select the English version and there you go...

So now we are scared of street signs....

There is nothing reminiscent to the display in the OP in those videos when I looked earlier. The display boards are much more mundane and heavy duty looking than the trick lighting emphasis in the videos.
I don't really see anything too much suspect in the things but I have to say, the video guy does say it is a wireless network and that is the same as broadcasting, never mind the nerds who will want to play with a system like that.

I don't like them at all.

I think of these "babies."

Tourists in 100+ degrees haven't a clue why everyone drops from heat exhaustion in a single block, or runs in opposite direction to avoid...

A ha!

It's an array to project 3d "subjective" objects so everyone will have to run and buy new pants.

Ummmm....

The system is “also capable of recording conversations,” according to a report by ABC 7.


Even on the intellistreets site they advertise a "push to talk system" and "wireless transceiver". Why would they advertise these features if it had no audio recording capability?

Better yet, why would DHS be interested in these systems is it was a simple detour sign?

I'm totally going to piss on the first one that I see. One that is reachable for my stream anyway.

The central shield symbol threw me at first because it seemed like an interstate highway sign but had those extra tips across the top.

What I found is that it is a composite symbol made up of this...



Nested in this...



So it seems likely to me that they are some sort of feature that is supposed to reflect information for federal and state highway systems.

It looks to me like the thing is sporting three different LED fields for displaying information.

Seems the most direct route to an answer would be to call the Nevada highway folks, whomever they may be.

Not saying you are wrong.

A strobe and a sensor are pretty close to the same thing.

Until you bust one open...Don't be to sure.

I can watch my wife drive home from work with the stuff they let us see.

I have no proof...Just another wild conspiracy.

The sign looks like the back of a hatchback with the back opened, indicating this is a checkpoint, prepare to be searched...

If that's the case it should just say "Show me your papers".

I went at looked at one of our local signs that lights up your current speed.

They are tiny compared to this. It could be a roadside drug sniffer.

They exist... Please search it. They do it openly in Texas.

Obviously meant to monitor and direct people/traffic in a crisis(DHS) event. Direct people where? Who knows, Is there a sports stadium nearby?

I just realized why Vegas?

Because Eric and the DOJ ,Whitehouse,dhs,and irs realized cloakrooms are for pansies.

All the politicians are in Vegas.

Where else can they get everyone of their vices in one place?

Um.. eavesdrop on who?


Seems a rather pointless place to put a eavesdropping device. You are going to get what.. a few seconds of snippets of conversations from passing people? Ever walked on the side streets in Vegas? No one hangs around and chats, not outdoors.. on a hot street.

Looks as folks said, like a digital info road sign, nothing more.

I just emailed a picture to my Dad who works as civil Engineer for city of Las Vegas.
He will dig deeper for us.

Very nice!

I'm curious if he's seen or heard of these and what he will have to say.

Please check back in!

Digital road signs that transmit audio (and probably video) wirelessly, record conversations, broadcast audio messages, and were designed with input from DHS rather than DOT? Sounds like there is nothing strange here!! DHS is always concerned about traffic in Vegas, Chicago and Detroit, right?
