‘Intelligent’ Streetlights to ‘Watch’ Florida Residents

“Data-collecting” LED streetlights part of General Electric’s “Intelligent City Initiative”

The Jacksonville, Florida, city government is preparing to install more than 50 “intelligent” streetlights under a new General Electric pilot program.

In accordance with the “GE Intelligent City Initiate,” the “data-collecting” LED streetlights will be placed throughout the city’s downtown and surrounding areas.

According to a Thursday morning presentation by GE, the lights will be “interconnected with one another and will collect real-time data,” as reported by the Jacksonville Business Journal.

As I’ve told you before I take everything Alex Jones says with a heaping helping of salt. That being said…

According to the article  not only will GE “own” all the information gathered but they can “share” it with third parties.

Like the city. And who knows who else?

Hmm…so, where does your privacy come in? It doesn’t.

It even has “homeland security” features. Just lovely.
