The 2.4Ghz project uses a wireless video receiver to hack into wireless surveillance cameras. This device (which is now part of consumers popular products), can be used for wireless surveillance cameras, but it can also be used for parents to monitor their children. Such systems are becoming more popular as they get cheaper.
But what most users of those devices don't realise is that they are broadcasting the signal.
This project (on-going) has several layers. Initially, I have been walking around different towns in Europe to collect and record footage received with the device (see below for the collected movies).
The second part of the project (also on-going) consists of placing the device in the street to reveal the presence of the cameras and to make obvious the fact that anyone can receive those signals.
The third stage of the project consists of a series of workshops: 2.4GHz Workshop, where participants are invited to explore the CCTV wireless networks of their city by searching for 2.4GHz surveillance video signals. The location of the various signals found are collected into a Google map (See Below).
