Laptop camera snapped away in one classroom
By Dan Hardy, Derrick Nunnally, and John Shiffman

Inquirer Staff Writers

A laptop security program at Lower Merion schools was, when triggered, set up to snap multiple photos of whoever was using the computer, a district computer employee said in a 2008 webcast.

As an example, network technician Mike Perbix said, the system snapped as many as 20 photos of a teacher and some students without their knowledge while they were in a high school classroom during regular classes.

It would keep recording photos from the webcam and screen shots of whatever the computer user was doing until it was turned off, he said.

"It's a fantastic feature," Perbix said, chuckling at times as he talked about the theft-tracking feature in the software. "I can't speak highly enough of it."
