3 Big data security analytics techniques

A judge has evicted a "nightmare neighbour" couple from their house after viewing video evidence from spy cameras planted in flower pots. Julie Spendiff and boyfriend David Colquhoun were caught performing various acts of anti-social behaviour including throwing bricks, pulling down a fence and throwing aerosol cans on a fire by the miniature cameras. Two neighbouring families bought the gadgets to document their complaints about the couple in North Tyneside. After watching the tapes, Judge Maurice Large granted an immediate repossession order, saying: "This is the sort of thing that people in their own homes ought not to have to put up with." Spendiff told the Daily Mail: "I'm absolutely appalled at the cameras - you would think we were rapists. We keep ourselves to ourselves and don't bother a soul." ®
