SurveillanceSaver – Live CCTV Screensaver

Ciaran Moore - March 25, 2008

Unlike other screen savers that are usually somewhat predictable, SurveillanceSaver is a screen saver with a difference. It shows live CCTV images from over 600 networked surveillance cameras worldwide. Now whenever your screen saver kicks in, you’ll be shown live images from random CCTV cameras that are connected to the internet.

This makes for a very unpredictable and potentially entertaining screen saver, as you’re never quite sure what you may see. It could be someones backyard, a street, or a storefront. The possibilities are almost endless due to the huge amount of cameras it randomly selects from.

    Best screensaver ever.

    I’ve been using SurveillanceSaver for the better part of a year, and it really grows on you. While it’s unpredictable from moment to moment, you gradually come to recognize some of the sites, and see them change with the seasons or according to the time of day. You get used to seeing the dimly lit altar area of a Bulgarian church, and then one day the lights are on and Mass is being celebrated. A stone-walled and stone-paved courtyard and fountain in Schwarzach, Austria is icy and deserted in winter; but as the weather warms up, pots of geraniums appear, and little tables and chairs, and people eating and drinking. You could watch the advent of Christmas everywhere at once: a Christmas fair in the center of a medieval German town; decorative Christmas lights on a street in Sweden; and a Posada set up next to a massive Spanish church. But so far, my favorite has been a camera in Reddish, U.K., that all spring and summer watched a litter of spotted piglets growing up.

    The other thing you learn is the utter banality of most CCTV cameras.

    Highly recommended.

    I generally keep away from security systems with too much wiring
