Camera and webcam surveillance | national news

When employers use camera surveillance, they can use traditional on-site surveillance cameras to monitor those in their workplace. In homes or in non-office environments, employers may also conceal cameras for the purpose of monitoring domestic workers.

Webcam monitoring is another tactic used by employers to track employee productivity, with tools ranging from basic webcams to sophisticated AI-enabled webcams. Some companies now require their employees to have their webcams on at all times, with their microphones, so that their employees are always available for face-to-face conversations, recordings, etc.

AI-enabled webcams provide employers with a surveillance system that uses tracking, moving object detection, and image recognition. With this technology, employers can monitor and manage the daily activities of workers in their office. Employers can also use webcams collect biometric data– such as facial expressions, body movements and eye movements – to assess employees’ attentiveness at work.

UPS has surveillance cameras in their trucks for the purpose of on-the-go surveillance, with the cameras, in theory, set to record only when triggered to do so by an incident, such as hard braking or swerving.
