1. A method for surveillance comprising:detecting a triggering event including at least one of: facial motion detection, human motion detection, animal motion detection, weather conditions, environmental conditions, or object recognition, lighting conditions, changes in lighting conditions, magnetic conditions, detection of preprogrammed objects or occurrences, activation of a redirection at predetermined times, commands to cause redirection immediately, and, commands to cause redirection on a delay;
responding to the detected triggering event including, detecting a first data stream being transmitted to an intended first destination;
intercepting the first data stream;
redirecting the intercepted first data stream to a second destination different than the intended first destination;
transmitting a second data stream in replacement of the first data stream, to the intended first destination during at least a portion of the time that the first data stream is redirected, the second data stream including at least one of: a modified first data stream, a blank video stream, a prerecorded data stream, a silent audio stream, a distorted video and/or audio stream, and, a pre-recorded video and/or audio stream; and,
providing a timestamp to the second data stream indicating a time different from the time when the first data stream was intercepted.
