I only got into Urbex a week ago, i found a pretty dope warehouse but it had a security pole that i assume was motion activated around one of the entrances. I tried to go in the back way, so i had to climb over the roofs, when i dropped down off the roof, i noticed a security poll next to me. I took a few pictures and bolted, i heard some police sirens a few minutes later but i have no idea if it's related. Just wondering if anyone knows if some big surveillance poll things are actually legit?

(the red pole, only photo i got of it).

Anyway, here's the other photos i got before bailing if you guys want to see them https://imgur.com/a/UQX605z

Cheers guys.

Looks like a good site.
Hard to tell with cctv, but IMO likelihood of fake is 50%.

Beautiful site. Very nice.
It is probably one of those new back to site security cameras. They will most likly be hooked into a wifi network if there is a few of them. Got a wifi detector? If it is broadcasting a SSI maybe it will have a name like "XYZ-secnetwork or similar. Or they could simply have sim cards and be back to base. Nice tech.
I'm estimating that it would be real. People who go to that much trouble to secure a site probably spend that little extra to move from a deterrent to detection. It would be interesting if you could describe what is on top of the pole. Camera? Solar panel? Monkey with a stick?

Oh, and unless it is a defence site or government site, the odds of police involvement for someone just wandering around is minimal. It would be private security.

There legit mate, more and more sites are using them. Like Panic mentioned there will be a network of them that feedback via wi-fi. At the end of the day there only security cameras, footage will only get reviewed if they have a reason to review it. Like if scrappers come, vandals, alarms are triggered etc they will review footage to see who and what but if your just there for urbex and dont fuk s*** up they wont even notice you have been :)

Yeah they do, there are some higher spec configs but the v4000 seems to be the most popular in Adelaide at least.
We're going to make a call and get some detailed specs in form of a quote.

I saw one of these the other day when I was walking my dog. It was situated inside a temporary fenced off area for a controversial old saw-toothed factory that's about to be knocked down.
It seemed to have PIR sensors attached to it, which must have been ranged wrong, as I triggered them from the public side of the fence. It triggered a local (very poor quality) siren.
I could also see that there was a camera attached to it. I think it was one of the ATF ones mentioned previously.
