Preventing and combating crime in Ensenada municipality

Cameras from Axis help citizens feel safe

“Both the technology and the Axis camera images are excellent. Both those that we installed via wireless network and those that we have installed via fiber optics in the places where it was impossible to utilize wireless service. We are very happy with the choice.“ Susana Gonzalez, Ensenada City Secretary of Security and Justice.


The municipality of Ensenada is located 65 kilometers east of Buenos Aires, on the southern coast of Rio de la Plata. It covers an area of 135 km2, has about 52,000 inhabitants and includes the cities of Ensenada, Punta Lara, and Dique. The municipality wanted to have a surveillance system that would allow it to prevent and combat criminal offenses and vandalism attacks in the area. As part of the Comprehensive Civil Protection Program established by agreement between the Municipality of Ensenada and the provincial Ministry of Security was tendered the purchase, installation and deployment of cameras for an urban video surveillance system and the provision of equipment and furnishings of the Municipal Operations Center.


After several meetings with the municipality to identify its needs, Conectia Wireless proposed that the best option was to deploy AXIS Q6032-E Network Cameras. The PTZ AXIS Q6032-E installed in Ensenada are prepared for outdoor use, and day/night operation, with IP66 classification and simple, reliable installation in demanding applications. Its unique Arctic Temperature Control allows for operation at 40 °C, with power over Ethernet using the midspan provided. AXIS Q6032-E has an angle of inclination of 220°, 35x optical zoom and 12x digital, progressive scan, Wide Dynamic Range, H.264, Motion JPEG and self-monitoring. The solution was connected with Motorola equipment to a central node which can then display the images on the monitor with the central management software, Milestone XProtect® and completed with Cisco and IBM networking equipment.


Now the municipality of Ensenada can control, display and store images from different cameras and thus prevent and combat crime. The solution implemented with Axis cameras allows citizens of the municipality to have a level of safety higher than that which existed prior to its implementation.
