Axis network video helps the municipal police to effectively control the traffic in Galdakao

“Thanks to the video surveillance system based on Axis network cameras, we have managed to enhance Municipal Police performance in terms of traffic control, without requiring extra staff. We have already demonstrated the usefulness of the network video system and consider it very helpful to solve many of the traffic problems we suffer daily.“ Roberto Candela, Head of Security of the Galdakao Town Hall.


The town of Galdakao, due to its proximity to Bilbao, has experienced a significant growth in population and vehicles in recent years. Due to the high number of traffic incidents, the Town Hall decided to implement a video surveillance system designed to enhance the effectiveness of preventive policing, timely traffic control and monitoring vehicular traffic in three areas. Additionally, it intended to centralize image reception with other cameras already installed and host a video management system at the Municipal Police facilities.


The Town Hall proceeded to call for a tender, and the system proposed by Sumenor, based on network cameras from Axis Communications and Proxim Wireless links, was awarded the contract. The solution consists of AXIS 233D Network Dome Cameras with anti-vandal housings. The powerful zoom capabilities and the excellent image quality of these cameras make it possible to identify the license plate of vehicles committing violations, from many meters away.


The Town Hall has verified that the presence of the cameras is changing driver behavior. The commissioning of this system has meant a decline in the number of violations at these points. In addition, residents of affected areas have expressed their satisfaction with this Town Hall decision.
