Safe-haven enables a camera-free zone

Safe-haven enables a camera-free zone
"Safe Haven" is a pioneering technology that addresses the issues surrounding the misuse of camera phones and other wireless devices, within certain areas.

Iceberg Systems embarked on a research and development programme to address the privacy and security issues with camera mobile phones. Called "Safe Haven", the technology comprises of a facility that intermittently sends a signal announcing its presence. If a portable imaging/data device is in receipt of the signal, it "knows" it is in a "Safe Haven" area and the imaging device is disabled. Once out of range of the facility signals the portable image/data device to be re-enabled. In broad terms, the technology has the ability to control the use of said devices within a restricted area, whether it be a school, leisure centre, corporation and so on, creating a so called ‘wireless privacy zone’.
