Community Protests, Georgia County Shuts Down 70 Hikvision Fever Cameras

By Robert Wren Gordon, Published Aug 16, 2021, 09:57am EDT

Community protests have lead to Fayette County, Georgia's school board shutting down 70 Hikvision fever cameras that just a year ago they purchased for $500,000. The one-minute video below overviews the protests:

Even last year, the purchase was fraught with controversy, as IPVM revealed the school board purchased no black bodies and mistook the accuracy of the units they bought for ones with black bodies.

Now, with growing awareness of PRC-created and -controlled Hikvision within the local community, protests grew and the system was removed.
