A Smart city can be defined as “an urban area that uses different types of electronic Internet of Things (IoT) sensors to collect data and then use the data to manage assets and resources efficiently.” The technology allows city officials to interact directly with communities and city infrastructure to monitor what is happening in the city and how the city is evolving.
It is used to enhance quality, performance, interactivity of urban services, to reduce costs, resource consumption and to increase contact between citizens and government. Smart city applications are developed to manage urban flows, allow for crime prevention and real-time responses.
In a digital age, where resilience and responsiveness are paramount to fighting crime and creating a safer world, CCTV systems are becoming part of every city’s infrastructure. On street corners and crossings CCTV cameras are recording every move.
The SecuVue platform that Secutel offers can handle and manage several camera streams per server without compromising speed or accuracy. It is designed to manage exceptions only, but also caters for continuous streaming for real-time surveillance.
SecuVue allows virtually any control room to view any CCTV camera system with an Internet connection. The SecuVue Cloud Video Recorder (CVR) and Cloud Bridge bring intelligence to most cameras that are already installed. A single SecuVue CVR can support anything from 1 to 64 cameras on a single unit, or the SecuVue CVR can be linked to existing NVR or DVR systems and linked to the SecuVue Cloud-based video management system.
The system takes care of the hard work; managing bandwidth availability and usage. The control room operators only need to deal with exceptions, based on each user’s business rules. It is no longer a requirement for cities to invest in high-end cameras to do video analytics. The SecuVue platform enables standard cameras to have access to analytics, such as: facial collection and recognition, licence plate recognition, people counting, activity heatmaps, scene analysis, intrusion detection, etc.
The SecuVue platform will enable cities to manage traffic and/or incidents and make informed decisions based on reports generated by the system.
