Didn't know this. During my playthroughs I never bothered with the security panels thinking just smashing every camera I found had the same effect without wasting nanites, as camera are fairly easy to take care of in the first place anyway. The turrets though are definitely a pain in the ass so I'm gonna keep this in mind during my potential dedicated OSA run.
mkell_226: Regarding security alarms, I never hack the computers: I just use cryokinesis on all the cameras!
ZylonBane: Hacking security also temporarily disables turrets, which can be extremely handy in certain areas.
Another thing to note about cameras that I didn't realize til I ran through it a second time is that if they spot you it's not an immediate alarm trigger until it turns red. If they spot you run back where you came and they'll reset after a few seconds. Or if possible if they spot you quickly run underneath it where it can't see you and whack it/shoot it down.
