Security cameras have become a common sight at most bars and restaurants in the US.
But a new device designed to make it easier to take the camera off a cell phone is gaining traction in the industry.
Security camera stabilizer devices, or SCSTs, can be used to protect phones when not in use.
A SCST has an electronic circuit board that controls the camera’s motion so that it doesn’t fall off.
The SCST can be worn on the wrist or on a belt or belt loop, but can also be hidden in a pocket or purse.SCSTs are cheap and easy to install, with the main drawback being that they are not waterproof.
In a lab test, a mobile phone fell off a SCST, causing a minor injury, but only after the phone was put into a water bottle for 15 minutes.
