Residents see Red over Luas.
Passers-by noticed that surveillance equipment at the Red Line stop - which hasn't opened yet - had been encased in steel mesh.
But there's no such security measure at any of the Green Line stops which run from the posh neighbourhood of Sandyford to St. Stephen's Green.
One resident described the move as a "disgrace".
"We've had some social problems, same as many other parts of the country. But to stick up steel cages around security cameras at our tram stop is a bit much.
"We really do feel we are being victimised and the builders are being snobby," the resident said.
But tram bosses said the measure was temporary. A spokesman said: "It's not the only location where there are such temporary protective cages. There are a few other locations."
He added that he situation would be assessed when the line was complete and back in Luas hands.
