The Colombian municipality of La Ceja chose a video surveillance system using AXIS Q6000-E Network Cameras to achieve complete geographic coverage
“This next-generation Axis system has been a game-changer in the eyes of the police, by also monitoring La Ceja’s commercial center and serving as a preventive measure through identifying security threats such as vandalism activity and providing oversight of areas of interest, while also providing the ability to respond to any emergency event that may arise.” Sergio Mira Rodríguez, Monitoring & Intelligence Center Coordinator for the Municipality of La Ceja.
La Ceja del Tambo is a city with an economy based on floriculture, agriculture, livestock and small industries. However, it is also situated between other cities where organized crime operates. For the city’s administration, one of the main priorities is to maintain control over its territory and ensure safety for citizens and visitors. In order to achieve this, it has included in its Development Plan – “La Ceja: A Better Quality of Life” – an innovative proposal for an electronic surveillance system that would protect the entire municipality.
The city invested in 40 AXIS Q6000-E Network Cameras, that provide a fixed 360-degree view, in combination with AXIS Q6055-E PTZ Network Cameras, to achieve continuous monitoring and a higher level of detail. The project was carried out by Segurtronic, an Axis partner, having Intelligent Security Systems’ SecurOS™ platform as the VMS. Other Axis camera models were also included, all with Full HD resolution and a five-year manufacturer’s warranty.
With the implementation of this project, La Ceja has become the first municipality in the Antioquia Department of Colombia to adopt AXIS Q6000-E technology. The project will be complemented in the future by a coverage extension utilizing another 20 AXIS Q6000-E and 20 AXIS Q6055-E Network Cameras, to include areas that remained uncovered on phase 1.
