Solving the technical problem: Security CCTV systems are nowadays common in public and private areas, buildings, etc. One of the biggest problems, if not the biggest, is that all contemporary systems are faced with is their inability to adequately cope with laser beam assaults. The Self-Protecting security camera expressly addresses and resolves this issue for all security CCTV systems all around the globe. A laser beam can temporarily blind or permanently damage any present-day security camera in the market except the Self-Protecting security camera described herein. The innovative Self-Protecting security camera has been specifically designed not to affect any of the known systems (or technologies) or camera resolutions (analogue, 720P, 960P, 1080P, TVI, CVI, CVBS, HD-SDI, AHD, IP, etc.), acting only on the image detection sensor and the lens. The electronic circuit of any security camera (analogue, 720P, 960P, 1080P, TVI, CVI, CVBS, HD-SDI, AHD, or IP) coupled with an arrangement of prisms, mechanical filters & heat absorption filters, render the system impervious to laser beam attacks or interference. This is accomplished by effectively blocking and/or diverting the laser beam and/or heat radiation from hitting the image detection sensor and lens. Moreover, the diverted laser beam (or heat radiation) is channeled to specialised detectors that trigger an alarm, indicating on a panel the area of intrusion whilst still furnishing a decent image to the recording apparatus and to the control centre monitors (via cable or wireless transmission), thus enabling real-time viewing.
