Axis cameras at the heart of Nevelsk smart city system

Improved incident detection rate and regulation enforcement with new surveillance solution

“Axis equipment for the Safe City System was recommended by the Directorate of Internal Affairs of the Sakhalin Region and by our system integrator Kriljon Service. In less than a year of system usage, we feel that our choice of solution was correct: IP cameras with extraordinary detail upon zooming in allow us to identify any license plate number of the speeding car as well as the face of the suspect driver. As a result, not only the incident detection rate, but also discipline in the streets has improved.” Chistyakov Sergey Nikolaevich, head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in Nevelsk city.


Nevelsk is a far eastern port city located on Sakhalin Island and the administrative center of Nevelsky District of the Sakhalin Region. The geographical specific of the city is its spread along the coastline from the north to the south for more than 9 kilometers. The framework of the Safe City Program included Axis network cameras in the city video surveillance system and the cameras have been installed in the main street of Nevelsk and in crowded areas.


The Directorate of Internal Affairs of the Sakhalin Region has been using Axis cameras for implementation of different projects in the territory of the region for a long time. Axis equipment has proved to be high-quality, reliable and high-tech. That is why an Axis solution was chosen for the Nevelsk video surveillance system as well. The project included installation of 26 high-speed AXIS Q6035-E PTZ Dome Network Cameras and one outdoor fixed AXIS P1346-E.


Today, the city surveillance system in Nevelsk includes Axis cameras integrated with Intellect software provided by ITV. All the functions of the network cameras are used: Power over Ethernet (PoE), Active Gatekeeper and Video Motion Detection. Recordings from the video cameras are sent to state authorities (the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the Main Directorate for Road Traffic Safety) and saved in the archive. Since the summer of 2014, when the solution was put in use, law enforcement officials have managed, with its help, to record, solve and prevent a significant number of crimes, mainly thefts and hooliganism, road traffic incidents and speeding violations.
