Manual how to disable security cameras

Next step to translate an interesting guide them company‚Äôs mover. If you remember, the initiative came in 2013, in US, as a sort of “game” intended to spread the direct action, specifically those aimed at security cameras. On their website you can find more information about the history of the “game”, their reasons for being, and so on. Be burns.

Why destroy CCTVs?

Trust your intuition. But anyway if you need an intellectual justification, then read the following:

“The surveillance cameras are not borne equally by all people of the street, but falls on those stereotypically predefined as potentially deviant. Or about those people who by their appearance and behavior are classified as indecent by their operators. Thus, the youth, especially those that are already economically and socially marginalized, may be subject to higher levels of authoritarian intervention, as well as higher levels of stigmatization. Instead of contributing to higher levels of social justice by reducing levels of victimization, surveillance cameras are merely tools of injustice in the service of a distinctive and discriminatory surveillance. ”

“What we have shown is that security cameras do not reduce crime (in any case has increased). Nor do they reduce fear has committed a crime, but, to result in something, cameras slightly increased levels of anxiety. ”

Camera types

False Cameras

These cameras should be disqualified because feel self-conscious and inflict fear of punishment.

“False cameras include lenses and holders. They use a real case to make them look real. ”

Hidden cameras

They serve to strengthen surveillance in installations where primary cameras are more basic. Hidden surveillance cameras offer a second if you intrude clear the primary cameras. These types of cameras are usually used temporarily to capture repeated criminal activity.

Cameras on walls

They are usually installed outside the reach of people, but they can be accessible by two people working together. Especially protect private property, but often also covering public space.

Cameras on roofs

Cameras are usually used by police to control traffic, but are also sometimes used by office complexes or private institutions.

Cameras on poles

They are usually operated by local authorities to monitor commercial areas and urban traffic.

Methods of attack

Plastic Bag

A plastic bag with glue serves great. It is a cheap and as effective as any other method short-term technique. Use industrial bags because they are thicker. Sometimes cameras are being repaired are to cover, so that this technique does not call visually much attention. If the camera can be covered by a bag without difficulty, it means that is available. If so, do not hesitate to destroy the crystal, lens, and other component (done, do not cover the camera with a bag: people need to see the camera destroyed as a sign that they do not serve).

Sticker and tape

Simply paste a sticker or some tape on the lens. This technique is training and clearly shows that the camera is “offside.”

Paint Spray Gun

Become a water gun that use nines and fill them with paint. This technique is fast, fun, easy, and does not require anything scales (highly recommended). You can disable many cameras in a short time (one hour of activity you can easily put offside 10 cameras). Do not forget to bring spare paint in plastic containers. Nor forget to remove impurities to prevent gun locks. Points to the camera lens and then take charge of the rest of the camera and the area where it is. The paint is easily cleaned, so it is a technique of short-term but serves to clearly indicate people where there is a camera.

Nooses gun models use Super Soaker 400 – 2000 (camouflage for urban night actions version). We use a 50/50 mixture of water and emulsion paint, so that we can reach without difficulty heights up to 4.5 meters above nooses. This mixture completely obstructs the camera lens once applied to the target. Be prepared to get dirty, so wearing disposable clothing.

Laser Pointer

Laser pointers considerable power can be bought for reasonable prices. To ensure effective action more powerful laser pointers are recommended. Note that you can damage your vision without aiming well, or if the camera glass reflects the laser. Also it believes that, over long distances, it is difficult to keep the laser fixed on the target. The laser pointer can be installed on a pair of binoculars to increase accuracy. This technique does not show the people that the camera is useless, so is not recommended.

Cut wires

Camera cables can be cut with sharp tools as used in gardening. Ensures that the tool you insulate electricity cables. If you leave the cables dangling casually you will show people that the camera is useless. In addition, you will force to repair (and pay) wiring of the camera. Sparks of satisfaction.

Heavy objects

Ladder to the roof of the building where the camera is mounted. From the top, drops a heavy object like a block of concrete. You can calculate the correct position if first you drop smaller stones. The camera will be destroyed with a display of sparks. But keep in mind that climb tall buildings with heavy objects requires you to be physically fit. Also consider the safety of them passersby that can be found on the street. This technique is serious.


The preparation (training) is essential not only to acquire the necessary physical form, but also to acquire the necessary skills (and more importantly prepares to leave unexpected situations).

Working juntas

Knows your collaborators (their skills and shortcomings). It is also important to know to what extent they can rely on them to join otres.4.2) Maintain the shape.

You can never be too fit, so make a variety of exercise (although the best way to prepare is really disabling cameras). “Play” in the field in which you will act, and start with something simple like putting stickers.

Know the terrain

Familiarize yourself with all aspects of the land on which will act. Explore the area both day and night. Scale all the trees; all buildings. Explore all streets, alleys, bushes, and tunnels. Salta all walls, railings and fences. Do not use the streets or roads (only cross them for safe angles). If you think the area is patrolled by helicopters train your skills against aerial surveillance, ie looking coverage, using flares, smoke bombs, and so on.
