Question
Are security cameras a problem on Shabbos? Thank you. G-D should give you and all a very good year.
Answer
Please refer to the following link, where I gave a detailed answer to this question that one may pass by a security camera on Shabbat. Video-cameras on Shabbat and Yom Tov What I must add is that the camera must be put on before Shabbat or set by a timer. I would also like to add to my previous answer, that is also the ruling of Rabbi Neuwirth zt”l, in Shemirat Shabbat Kehilchata (new edition) pg. 380, that a person may pass by a security camera on Shabbat. Shanna Tova.
