City-wide monitoring system for Campinas

February 2007 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

Located in the Brazilian state of São Paulo, Campinas is a city, a county and a home to more than one million people – over 98% of whom live in the urban region.

Campinas is a rapidly growing industrial and financial area of Brazil, the processing and distribution centre for a diversified agricultural region, and a major transportation hub.

To help bolster crime-prevention efforts, the Campinas government has partnered with Bosch Security Systems to create a remarkable high-tech monitoring system designed to keep both citizens and visitors safe.

The security system is managed centrally through the new Center for Integrated Monitoring, where six to 10 specially trained members of the municipal police force monitor the traffic and urban areas around the city. They report any suspicious activities, problems or traffic accidents to the police in the field or other public authorities for immediate action.

Each operator was specially trained to use the variety of Bosch solutions implemented at the centre - including the keyboards and security software. The system includes Bosch CCTV cameras - AutoDome, high-resolution Dinion IP Cameras, and EnviroDomes - plus IP-based equipment such as VIDOS, network video recorders and VIP encoders and decoders.

"This is one of the first such security systems to use VIP equipment," explains Frans Kemper, director of marketing for Bosch Security Systems' Latin American operation. "Public monitoring is hot here in Brazil – it has been associated with strong declines in the crime rates!"

The new security operation started with 20 cameras installed around the city. By the end of 2007 there will be 270 cameras installed in Campinas.
