Axis cameras help ensure safety and order in small towns
Mokrá-Horákov municipality invests in surveillance system in both urban and rural areas
“The system is invulnerable since a dedicated network is involved, where all circuits meet in a single protected location.” Jan Hotovec, Comimpex.
The South Moravian municipality of Mokrá-Horákov utilizes its own surveillance system. After several years of operation, municipality representatives decided to complement the systems with new modern IP cameras. The investment involved not only outdoor public areas, but also the local school. The objective was to strengthen crime prevention. The system was to serve not only the municipal police, but also the authorized operators of the school.
Comimpex, an Axis partner, used AXIS P1354 Network Cameras in the project, and there are a total of 16 of them installed within the surveillance system. The cameras transfer footage within a dedicated network to a unified storage, which is secured for the purpose of personal data protection. The integrator also successfully addressed a problem with powering outdoor cameras located on lampposts, which are powered only during night time.
A secure Internet connection within a proper dedicated network, addressing the problem of powering cameras located on lampposts, and monitoring new locations, represent an advance in effectiveness of the IP-based surveillance system for the municipality of Mokrá-Horákov. The recorded video content is available from a unified storage within a dedicated network, and is only accessible by a limited group of individuals. CxC, a proprietary video management system from Comimpex which supports video analysis, is used for video management. In Mokrá-Horákov there are a total of 16 Axis cameras in operation, which protect the safety of citizens, public and private property.
