There were two main pressing issues that needed to be addressed. Firstly, the city had far less than efficient police force-only one policeman was supposed to look after the whole 3,300 dwellers. Secondly, Brienon-sur-Armançon had not prepared itself with necessary cables needed for modern surveillance systems.
Dahua Technology (SZSE:002236) provided a tailored solution with various advanced devices including PTZ Camera, Panoramic Camera, Thermal Camera, ANPR Camera, etc. These equipment are linked by a wireless device combining PTZ camera and antenna that transmits all the collected information to the highest point in the city center. These data are then transmitted to the control center, making it easy for the police to achieve round-the-clock monitoring.
Fixed scenes are monitored by general cameras, once human or vehicles trigger detection rules set by the operator (like tripwire and intrusion), the PTZ camera will automatically zoom-in and start tracking. Dahua Starlight Technology allows the PTZ camera to capture colorful details even under ultra-low light condition. Embedded with License Plate Recognition algorithm, ANPR Camera detects and recognizes moving vehicle’s plate number within low speed, recording status on main roads. Thermal Camera monitors the BBQ sites in the park because they can detect fires even at long range distance.
The Brienon-sur-Armançon police can now sit remotely in the control room and operate in an efficient way with Dahua Safe City Solution, which allows them to effectively monitor major areas in the city and respond in time when a crime takes place. The recorded videos also serve as crucial evidence and help the police to crack a case with much less effort. In the first week of the test run of this smart system, the police has already solved a cemetery theft case with evidence recorded by the Dahua PTZ camera.
“The visit to the Dahua headquarters in Hangzhou one year ago concluded with a reciprocal commitment – to equip Brienon with video surveillance. We welcomed this agreement, which allowed the installation of the system and improved the daily life of our residents,” said Mr. Jean-Claude M.CARRA, Mayor of Brienon-sur-Armançon.
