Private homes in Hoboken, NJ have facial recognition software?

Most people understand the need to install home security systems in their homes. They’re often good enough deterrents to keep many criminals at bay. Whether it’s the sound of the alarm siren, or just simple stickers that advise potential thieves to find easier targets.

But this sign I spotted uptown the other day is a bit bold, no?

The sign includes the statement: Facial Recognition Software Used.” Does this resident have a national database of all individuals? Or do they just provide some kind of “digital fingerprint” of the perpetrator to law enforcement?

Not sure about any of you – but technology sure is making life a bit creepy. Not advocating crime in any way, but with red light cameras, big-brother monitoring, fingerprint readers, and more. Do you think all of this “security” really makes life better?
