CCTV in Eco Park

Yesterday I inspected he commencement of CCTV in Eco Park. There are cameras installed at various places of Eco Park. Many of the cameras are versatile and high end. Some are digital cameras and are capable of reading the number plates of vehicles entering the car parking area of Eco Park. Few are PTZ cameras (Pan-tilt-zoom cameras) that can be controlled to follow movement of individuals. I was told that it was possible to generate tables of data like number of people entering a gate or number of cars entering - this would help in monitoring revenue earnings of the Eco Park. The optical fibre backbone can also be used for area specific announcements through speakers and creation of Wi Fi zones. A picture taken at the control unit yesterday:

  1. Good to see CCTV is installed. CCTV is very much needed in all the public attraction and major road intersections. Public Security and safety should be first priority but its always neglected untill some unfortunate incident happens.

  2. Also Control Center cabling, cable labelling and rack security is not done properly. Montoring and data storage should be isolated with each other.
