亚马逊环已经与2000多个警察和消防部门合作

Amazon’s Ring has teamed up with over 2,000 police and fire departments

尽管存在争议,亚马逊环与警方的合作在2020年并没有放缓——如果说争议带来了什么影响的话,那就是加强了这种合作。《金融时报》报道,这个亚马逊旗下的智能家居安全品牌目前在美国有2,014个警察和消防部门的合作,其中1,189个将在2020年加入。蒙大拿州和怀俄明州是唯一两个没有建立某种联盟的州。

Ring’s police collaborations didn’t slow down in 2020 despite controversies — if anything, they ramped up. The Financial Times reports that the Amazon-owned smart home security brand now has 2,014 police and fire department partnerships in the US, with 1,189 of them added in 2020. Montana and Wyoming are the only two states where Ring doesn’t have some kind of alliance.

这些部门也在利用这些团队合作。亚马逊环方面表示,各部门在2020年为超过22,335起事件要求提供视频。没有可用于对比的2019年数据,但一些第一反应者比其他部门更忙。例如,密尔沃基警方仅在2020年下半年就为431起事件要求提供视频,原因是凶杀案频发。

Those departments are making use of the team-ups, too. Ring said that departments requested videos for over 22,335 incidents in 2020. There wasn’t comparable 2019 data, but some first responders were busier than others. Milwaukee police, for instance, requested videos for 431 incidents just in the second half of 2020 due to a high level of homicides.

虽然用户在2020年获得了对亚马逊环视频分享的更多控制权,并且最近刚刚获得了端到端加密,但这些合作关系的一些隐私问题仍然没有改变。你对分享视频感到满意并不意味着你是清白的——电子前沿基金会告诉FT,邻居和路人可能会在没有授予同意的情况下被拍到。电子前线基金会称,这相当于一个”大规模且不受阻挡”的监控网络。

While users gained more control over Ring video sharing in 2020 and just recently got end-to-end encryption, some of the privacy issues with these partnerships remained the same. Just because you’re comfortable with sharing videos doesn’t mean you’re in the clear — the Electronic Frontier Foundation told FT that neighbors and passers-by might be caught on camera without granting consent. This amounted to a “massive and unchallenged” surveillance network, according to the EFF.
