Blinding security cameras with lasers

An article on blinding security cameras with lasers

http://www.c-h-a-o-s.com/2007/08/11/sni ... -security/

It sounds like a little tweaking might be needed to get this working perfectly, but the idea seems sound. Any ideas for defense against this?

Re: Blinding security cameras with lasers

how about those dome covers where you don't see which way the camera is pointing? I guess that isn't protection since you have to buy new cameras!

I think you can get dome housings to retrofit to existing cameras, so this might be a reasonable solution.

Be interested to hear how you get on with this.
I have some AXIS Network cameras, I might try this out on, see if it has any effect.

Re: Blinding security cameras with lasers

It should be easy to do some simple testing with a laser pointer. One of the comments on the site mentions that it is a more effective attack if you use a blue or green laser and a lens to spread the size of the dot over a larger area when it hots the camera.
