Playing a pivotal role at the forefront of making smart and safe cities a reality is AxxonSoft. As a provider of video management software (VMS) and physical security information management (PSIM) solutions, we enable cities to anticipate and respond swiftly to security threats through advanced video analytics and intelligent surveillance capabilities.

Our comprehensive Safe City solutions integrate various security and surveillance systems into a unified platform, allowing cities to monitor public spaces, critical infrastructure, transportation hubs, and more. This provides real time situational awareness and enables quick responses to emergencies, ensuring safer urban environments for citizens.

Public safety

AxxonSoft solutions play a crucial role in enhancing public safety, creating a sense of security and protection for citizens in urban environments. Through a network of intelligent cameras, smart cities monitor public spaces, transportation hubs, critical infrastructure, and other key areas, equipped with our video analytics. These cameras can detect suspicious behaviour, identify potential security risks, and even recognise known individuals involved in criminal activities using facial recognition technology.

This proactive approach empowers law enforcement to take preventive action before incidents escalate, fostering a positive environment for residents, business owners and tourists, ultimately leading to more vibrant and thriving city.

Traffic management

Our software also enhances traffic management, a critical aspect of smart cities. Through intelligent traffic analysis, cities can optimise traffic flow, reduce congestion, and minimise the risk of accidents. By integrating data from various traffic sensors and cameras, the system can dynamically adjust traffic signals and redirect vehicles to less congested routes in real-time, leading to more efficient and safer transportation.


The smart city concept extends beyond security and traffic management. It encompasses the seamless integration of various urban services and utilities, all aimed at creating a sustainable and eco-friendly environment. Our Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) solutions play a significant role in this domain, enabling cities to integrate and analyse data from different systems, including energy management, waste management, water supply, and more. By gaining comprehensive insights into the city's operations, authorities can make data-driven decisions to optimise resource usage, reduce energy consumption, and minimise environmental impact.

Data security

In the digital age, data privacy and cybersecurity are paramount concerns for those using any form of software, specifically smart cities. AxxonSoft understands the significance of this aspect and takes the protection of data very seriously. We adhere to strict standards, ensuring that our solutions meet EU standards, GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) standards, and the POPPI ACT (Personal Data Protection and Privacy Act). With robust encryption, authentication mechanisms, and secure data storage, we ensure that sensitive information remains safeguarded against unauthorised access and cyber threats.

By prioritising data protection, AxxonSoft provides cities with the confidence and assurance they need to embrace innovative technologies while maintaining the highest level of privacy and security for their citizens.

As we move towards a more interconnected and urbanised future, we cannot emphasise the significance of smart and safe cities enough. In this journey, AxxonSoft assumes a central role, providing cities with cutting-edge tools and expertise to build safer, smarter, and more resilient urban environments. With our solutions at the core of urban planning, cities are ensuring a better tomorrow for generations to come.
