Talking CCTV orders couple to stop having sex
13 Jun 2009, 1557 hrs IST, ANI


LONDON: A couple were left embarrassed after a talking CCTV camera in a town centre caught them having sex, and ordered to stop.

The pair had been drinking earlier, and when they heard the booming command issued by operators, they immediately stopped and fled from the scene in Northampton.

Northampton Borough Council has talking cameras trained in three town centre streets, which issue warnings about littering, fighting, and street drinking.

While most messages are pre-recorded, there are some specific warnings that are issued by the CCTV operators themselves.

Andrew Simpson, the Northampton Borough Councillor who is responsible for CCTV, said that he was shocked to hear camera operators had spotted people having sex in the street.

"I certainly wasn't expecting them to pick up that kind of thing," the Mirror quoted him as saying.

"Clearly, I would imagine these people must have had too much to drink and had fairly low inhibitions.

"But at least they stopped when the camera operators told them too," he added.

Imagine this happening in India. What would the CCTV operator say??

Re: Talking CCTV orders couple to stop having sex

Very neat. I wonder how the camera senses and recognizes the street fights, littering etc.

One other thing which always fascinated me is the Express Toll Routes. I know that there are cameras clicking pictures of every vehicle which enters and exits the ETR Highway and then we get a bill but how come it never misses to take a picture of even a single car? Especially during the rush hour. I never understood how this ETR system works but find it very interesting.

on 407 ETR the cameras are motion sensitive and record for 30 seconds from three different angles and the range is very wide to cover all three lanes with 9 cameras on each exit and enterance. when you have the equipment from ETR installed on your windshield it will send the signals to the radar installed and your car plate number is notified to the server for amount of travel you made on the highway to bill you/deduct from your e-pass.

-- did that CCTV report release any video to link with the news..... no ...just curious

Re: Talking CCTV orders couple to stop having sex

Good article. Such cameras would be great for controlling multiple locations. Has anyone seen such cameras elsewhere, specially in India? Would appreciate more info on this.

Re: Talking CCTV orders couple to stop having sex

We should probably have such CCTVs in every house in India... to control population growth
