Not only are they watching, they are listening.
Noticed this on a Denny’s door in New Mexico yesterday. In addition to cameras on the ceiling, there was a small white oblong object on the ceiling as well. What’s up with this and has anyone else seen these anywhere?

Somehow I don't think they give a rip of you consent or not. If you don't consent, don't patronize their business.

When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."

If you've got Alexa, Echo, Siri, or any of the other 'in-home voice activated web-based personal assistants', you've already consented to being monitored anyway, and this should be a, 'Meh.'
My curiosity is at the point where the voice monitoring, digital footprint, and 'red flag' laws intersect.
Suppose your Alexa (or even your Denny's monitoring) picks up the words, 'damned government', which triggers a monitoring and reporting routine. The routine picks up more words or phrases that could be connected to planning action -- casualties, attack, escape, firepower -- whatever, or could be connected to a couple of old warriors rehashing old times.
Suppose a scan of your digital footprint finds credit card purchases of things such as dehydrated food, ammunition, night vision devices, camouflage clothing, first aid supplies, cement, etc., connected to you through your credit card, or through the credit cards of people you have called in the days leading up to the monitoring trigger.
Suppose Amazon, in a fit of virtue-signalling intended to get the government to back off monopoly-busting efforts, announces it supports efforts to actively preempt people who might pose a threat to themselves and others. What appears on the surface to be an empty gesture of corporate social justice-ism turns out to be the harbinger of a program that turns over the results of aforementioned monitoring to local authorities to support efforts to take guns from dangerous people in support of red flag laws.
The problem I have with this is that while some people have called this idea, 'paranoid', no one's called it, 'impossible'.
Most stereotypes come from how you treated the last person who didn't know you.
'They' always have been listening, thank Bell Labs for the greatest audio surveillence unit possible, your telephone.

That's news to me.
Wow. Audio recording without your consent at a Denny's.
I would have asked to see the manager, pointed at the sign while he was with me, and then said my famous quote:
"Thank you, screw you, bye !!!"
If they are so paranoid that they have to record my every word while there, along with video, then they most certainly DO NOT need nor deserve my business.

The theory that a "big bang" from a handgun, along with a perpetrator receiving a gunshot wound, is the best way to end violent personal or property crimes.
Maybe there's fixin' to be a market for these after all...
