City investments in property and equipment are exposed to criminal mischief and theft, and can be frequently targeted. Security cameras provide a 24/7 record to help with investigation and prosecution, and public safety staff can be alerted to the activity in real-time.
City properties can vary in size where entry/exit points can be exposed to unauthorized entry at all hours. Properly placed cameras can maintain fence line coverage, sending alerts of any breaches to administrative staff. Thermal intrusion cameras provide increased coverage of larger areas, where heat signatures provide alerts based on size and direction of objects entering the targeted area of concern.
Improved Awareness Through AI
Artificial intelligence is giving surveillance cameras digital brains to match their eyes, letting them analyze live video with no humans necessary. This could be good news for public safety, helping police and first responders more easily spot crimes and accidents. City facilities cameras, as well as city-wide surveillance plans can benefit greatly as these cameras become a force-multiplier.
Video Surveillance as a Service
With DETECT’s new Video Surveillance as a Service (VSaaS), a municipal government can afford some of the latest state-of-the-art surveillance technology available by making a simple monthly payment. With this service, the city has no capital investment, and the equipment is routinely serviced and maintained by DETECT’s highly trained and experienced technicians.
