why? Can you expand on this? What have CCTV and a webcam in common?

what is the logics behind this? We use man_made for technical
installations/facilities/structures/devices, a camera is a technical
device, restaurants aren't (maybe the kitchen would qualify), "buildings"
aren't (but could have technical facilities to make them work), highways
aren't. I do not insist in using man_made for cameras, but IMHO they would
fit (like a crane, a chimney, a water_well, etc.).
