No, you've got it the wrong way round. These cameras are seeing people all over LOS.

I wouldn't be too concerned about the Bosh decal if I were you. Chances are they are made in China for Bosh, thus, carry a little more value because of the name but maybe not excessively.

Also, if you are using the correct spelling as seen on the cameras, it may be a case of trickery.

The real Bosch is spelled like this.

I just cannot spell lol

with the quality of cameras installed by the government, you shouldnt be to scared. But those frome 7eleven and shops i think is of better and why not.. Thai police have solved many cases by just following the perpetrator through cctv

Am not scared or worried, just amazed at the number of cameras in our area/city

I'm seeing them pop up in obscure places around Bangkok. The latest one, at the entrance to our soi, is placed so as to completely block the view of the street sign.

There's an assumption they are working, and someone is actually scanning the recordings from them. IMO a low probability of both. Even if we say there's a 50% chance

( p=0.5 ), that means the system is effective only for a quarter of the installations. ( p=0.25 ).

I’m all for it. Hopefully, it will deter terrorism down south. It can also be very useful in prosecuting traffic violations, if the government ever gets to that. 

'if the government ever gets to that.' Of course they will, well the police will when their tea money coffers get low.

Sorry to see that you support the government, “Big Brother” model of China. Yes, I agree there are benefits of catching the “bad guys” but for my money, I am not willing to foreswear privacy rights in the name of security. I am aware that the US with its blanket “Patriot Act” gives great leeway to the NSA for surveillance but will only support electronic surveillance under an independent court warrant for a justified suspicion.

That is also why they push 5G, together with AI, we will have situations worse than China. No more privacy at all.
Not even a concrete wall will help you hiding anymore soon enough. They can already do that with casual WiFi now.

Just wanted to know if this is happening all over Thailand?

Big Brother is watching you...:angry:

Actually, the CCTV camera are there to check what happens on roads and in traffic. Often what you see when a traffic accident is mentioned, and a video embedded, comes from one or more of thees. Great way to find out what actually happened, also in case of some criminal action.

 

Some cameras might also be online, so ongoing traffic situation can be checked.

 

No one cares what you do, or follow you on line, as long as you behave in traffic, and you don't get involved in a criminal act – apart from Big Brother's department – and if you do, you might be happy if some of the CCTV cameras are working...🙂

Probably someone's family member and a nice fat envelope from the supplier another from the installer ...

Quid pro quo is very popular these days. Hardly a day goes by without it being in the news.

I would not worry about it...you see they will not be maintained or serviced, they will break down within 6 -12 months and will be another waste of time!!

 

Nothing is serviced in Thailand!
