Trail cameras with encryption
We have been asked about this many times over recent years as many local councils now use trail cameras for surveillance in fly tipping and anti social behaviour hot spots. These same councils now require a feature which means that if the trail camera is stolen the thief would be unable to view the images stored on the memory card. Trail cameras with encryption use secure algorithms to safeguard captured images. This prevents unauthorized access and tampering. With the increasing concerns about privacy and data security, encryption ensures that only authorized users can view the recorded images.
Why are local councils are using trail cameras?
Local councils are increasingly turning to trail cameras with encryption to tackle the pervasive issue of fly tipping in their communities. These advanced fly tipping cameras provide several key benefits for monitoring remote areas and hot spots. Firstly, encryption ensures that the collected evidence is secure, reducing the risk of tampering or data breaches. This helps councils build stronger legal cases against offenders. Encrypted trail cameras are cost-effective, requiring minimal manpower for surveillance. By employing trail cameras, local councils can effectively combat fly tipping and hopefully deter potential culprits going forwards.
Fly tipping cameras also require the ability to be self contained and completely portable, features that trail cameras have naturally. The ability to move a camera from location to location, when and wherever it is needed is vital. Fast deployment is also key as is the need for a fly tipping camera to be completely self contained and wireless. Trail cameras offer all of these key necessary features making them the perfect design for this sort of application. Portability offers another important benefit for local councils with stretched budgets. It means that the same camera could be used many times over, for many different jobs.
Which manufacturer has built a secure trail cam with encryption?
Ltl Acorn have developed this encryption feature for their 6210 PLUS series trail cameras. Having encryption built into these trail cameras means that any image captured cannot be viewed without the decryption software. The decryption file is only supplied to the buyer of the camera and is not available to download from anywhere else. So if the camera or the memory card is stolen, the thief cannot access those images. The trail cameras use secure 64 bit secure encryption.
Ltl Acorn plan to roll this encryption feature out to further models too so if there is another trail camera, from our range, that you’re interested in then please just ask. It’s also worth noting that, at the present time, the encryption is for images only, not video.
