After the introduction of several new public security policies, a project to transform the district into a more secure and intelligent community began. In addition to capturing criminal activity, the project’s main goal was to reduce crime through preventive measures.
The district also aimed to unify the technological tools they use. Because of the platform’s ability to support the multiple existing security systems, Milestone XProtect® video management software (VMS) was the clear choice to manage the project’s demands.
- Milestone XProtect Corporate, Smart Client, Mobile Client
- Dome, fixed, PTZ and anti-vandalism video cameras from Axis, Bosch and Pelco
- Video analytics, synopsis and forensics with integration of Agent Vi, Amped IV, BriefCam and Neural Labs software
- Efficient implementation and maintenance by Exanet S.A.
- Flexibility to keep scaling the system for ongoing innovations
The Vicente López system is connected by fiber optics, which move captured video images through the network to a main monitoring unit with a data center and storage servers. Footage is typically stored for 30 days, unless otherwise dictated by local authorities.
There are over 1,000 cameras in public channels and another 100 cameras connected to local security guards and civil defense cell phones, as well.
The open design of the VMS platform is adaptable and thereby long-lasting, which guarantees its use in future government administrations and public policies. According to district authorities, the objective has been to have a video surveillance system with 1,500 cameras that record in full HD, 365 days a year.
At the outset, one of the project’s biggest challenges was being financed by resident taxpayer’s money, and for this reason every decision was made very carefully. Local administrators are most happy that the project was successful in combining the human element with Milestone’s well-applied, advanced technology to guarantee the community’s well-being today and for years to come.
