Flock bills itself as “a wireless security system for neighborhoods”.

The articles warns, “Flock sells security cameras to neighborhoods, and those cameras then record everything that happens in those neighborhoods.”

  1. I’ve been tempted to record all wifi MACs and BT MACs that come into range of my home. Add a license plate reader, some metadata lookup and soon all the neighbors will be known.
    Also, the weekly service people will be uncovered, and anyone who doesn’t visit consistently would stick out.
    My home is near the entrance to the neighborhood, so **everyone** would become known except the youngest kids.
    Around here, most 10 yr olds have cell phones.
    Where’s that spare R-pi?
