Keep the Cameras Rolling
June 13, 2022 3:49 am

With all of the crime–C”V some of it violent–going on, keep those cameras rolling.

“Ring” for example can be configured to not “do” anything such as beep or blink during certain hours/days, even though it is recording when motion is detected.

That video, if needed C”V, may help solve a crime.

Don’t be so frum to your own or others’ detriment.

P.S. This video does support keeping the security cameras going on Shabbos.

The same reason microphones are not permitted also applies to live video cameras and kol vachomer. It is very simple. You’re welcome
