Yes. I realise that sounds a little extreme. But the makers of Jabbakam, a security camera based system that enables multiple users to monitor cameras on the web, say it isn’t – as long as you ask the local council.
They are giving away one free Jabbakam system on their Facebook Page. Submit a picture of a problem in your neighbourhood – a fly-tip, broken sign or some graffitti and they will give the free system to the person whose situation looks worst. You’ll get a Y-cam internet camera which normally costs £318 on Amazon, plus access to the Jabbakam web based monitoring network.
The cameras are like weather-proof webcams that can connect to the internet remotely and can send over footage to a private website. I suppose on the friendly side you could see them as tech-ennabled neighbourhood watch schemes. The camera is above. The video recordings looks like the set-up below:
