Video surveillance major Axis Communications on Thursday showcased their integrated smart solutions at Axis Solutions Day 2018 in New Delhi, and shared implementation details of the large-scale community CCTV Nenu Saitham project for building a safer and secured Hyderabad.
“The impact of CCTV installations in Hyderabad City Police jurisdiction has been astounding, leading to a huge reduction in overall crime rate by 32 percent in the last three years (2014-17) and reduction of 90.6 percent in chain-snatchings incidents during this period. Additionally, the Government of Telangana is planning to install 15 lakh cameras across the state in the next three years,” said M Mahender Reddy, Director General of Hyderabad Police, while speaking on the occasion.
CCTV Nenu Saitham project is a one-of-its kind community CCTV programme, under which the Hyderabad City Police is encouraging enterprises, public sectors, residential associations and individuals to invest in CCTV’s procured from government empanelled firms.
They will then set up a monitoring centre in their own colonies, which in turn can be integrated with the nearest police stations and the Central Command Centre. This will track, monitor and analyse the video feed for detecting criminal activities, traffic violations and road conditions in real time.
Under the project, an entity or individual can buy a CCTV system that will cover the premise entry, exit and parking areas to the extent of 50 yards on the road, along with storage and video screen for self-monitoring within the colony.
The Government of Telangana will provide the back-end connectivity to the police stations, Command Control Centre along with real-time video analytics.
“We are proud to be a partner of choice for the Hyderabad community CCTV project. This is an example of community participation towards building a safer and secured smart city. We have 1,500 camera installations across the city to track, monitor and analyse the video feed for detecting criminal activities, traffic violations, and road conditions,” said Sudhindra Holla, Sales Director-India and SAARC, Axis Communications.
“With our strong portfolio of product line-up, we aim to support the authorities to deliver high surveillance and build a model Smart City and eagerly look forward to the phase two implementation,” he added.
Axis Communications showcased their integrated smart solutions in IP audio, retail suite and thermal cameras. Centered on the theme, ‘The Future in Integrated Security Solutions,’ the event brought to fore Axis’ recent India success stories and their key takeaways from prestigious surveillance implementations across the country, including the Mysore City Palace project.
“The project was challenging as the site continued to operate even during the installation. Mysore Palace, being one of the most visited heritage sites of India, we had to ensure that the work was seamless with minimum disruption. We also had to create a multi-point wireless network to ensure the infrastructure had the ability to support the new cameras as well as the management software across the area for crowd and queue management,” Sudhindra said.
Security and surveillance are an integral part of all societies. With the government’s smart city projects gaining momentum, there is a dire need of new age IP Video integrated end to end solutions to deliver high business value.
