Kolhapur City safer than ever with Infinova Surveillance System- Designed and Implemented by Samarth Security Systems India Pvt. Ltd.
Kolhapur Safe City Project initiated with the key project objective of implementing a state-of-art IP surveillance Infrastructure with Incident reporting System. The city well known as one of the Holy Tourist destinations in Maharashtra India, demanded an uplift of the safety infrastructure for its residents, immigrants and pilgrims to this city. The Safe City project also had a motive to monitor Law and Order Situation, Public gatherings, processions, VIP movements and assist in Traffic Control and Crime Prevention
The Solution required covering all major entry and exit points from the city, places of strategic and religious importance, locations prone to public gatherings, traffic junctions, flood prone areas, administrative office locations. Collectively, 65 locations were to be covered under the first phase of the CCTV installation. The infrastructure involved covering these 65 locations with high-end surveillance cameras and Infinova was selected one of the major partners for providing these High Resolution IP Cameras. About 165 cameras in total were implemented by our System Integration Partner, Samarth Security Systems (I) Pvt. Ltd based at Navi Mumbai, involving 116 Infinova High Definition Fixed Cameras and 17 High Definition PTZ cameras. Balance being covered by 32 Panoramic Cameras. These cameras were connected to the C-Cube (Command, Control and Communication Center) and were viewed on a Large LED wall covered with 12, 43 inch LED monitors. Two client workstations are used to control all the cameras at the control room. Apart from the surveillance cameras, storage and command control system, the infrastructure also included industrial grade switches, network management software for health monitoring and efficient backbone using 6/12/24 core OFC Ring Topology.
The C-Cube ensures an efficient Video Management System, Incident reporting system, Video Analytics, Disaster Management System and the SOP’s are available in the local language “Marathi”, all to support the operators and provide a user friendly system.
It is proposed that in the Second Phase, 90 more cameras are supposed to be installed along with E-Challan/M-Challan, Dial 100, Intelligent Traffic Management System, Flood Sensors & Seismic Sensors, Face recognition, License plate recognition (ANPR), Police m-Beat System, all integrated to the C-Cube. Current Scenario, since the project completion in March 2016, the CCTV system has been a great benefit to the police officials. The cameras have been tracking accidents, theft cases, etc. in various parts of the city. In the month of May 2016, the CCTV footage played a key role in at least four accident cases while at Central Bus Stand, the footage provided police clues about two thieves who had stolen a bag and some jewelry from a car using a duplicate key.
