IP-based CCTV Surveillance Cameras to tackle illegal dumping
The Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD) in Hong Kong will progressively extend the scheme on installation of Internet Protocol (IP) CCTV surveillance cameras to combat illegal dumping, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.
The IP cameras will be deployed at “illegal refuse deposit blackspots” in all districts starting from 6 June to combat illegal deposits of refuse and improve environmental hygiene.
A spokesman for the FEHD said the Department FEHD launched a six-month pilot scheme on installation of IP cameras at six refuse deposit blackspots in Central and Western, Sham Shui Po and Yuen Long districts in late December 2016.
The pilot scheme was said to have effectively curbed illegal dumping through targeted surveillance and enforcement actions.
Considering these encouraging results, the FEHD, after consulting all District Councils, will extend the scheme to cover about 80 refuse deposit blackspots in the territory for a trial period of one year. The scheme will be reviewed one year after implementation.
When the scheme commences next week, IP cameras installed at 46 blackspots in various districts will be ready for use and installation work at the remaining blackspots will be conducted progressively.
CCTV Surveillance – suppliers and installers of a full-range of IP CCTV cameras
IP CCTV video surveillance solutions (also known as networked cameras, IP CCTV cameras, Network Cameras, Internet-enabled security cameras or web cameras) are the future of video monitoring installations, as they deliver superior HD-grade image quality and ease of use at a very affordable price point.
Networked cameras convert video and audio feeds into data, which is then streamed over a network or an Internet connection to just about anywhere around the world. Since they often use existing network points and cabling for faster and easier setup, IP cameras are also a most cost-effective and easily scalable solution than analogue CCTV systems.
Beside supporting a superior level of flexibility in terms of installation options, IP CCTV cameras also deliver a significantly higher image quality than analogue solutions, with megapixel HD-grade models recording evidence-grade footage that can be easily and rapidly stored onto a standalone network video recorder or on dedicated network storage and retrieved.
Furthermore, IP CCTV solutions can be integrated in a much more seamless fashion with other existing IT systems, in order to deliver centralised control and monitoring. Data from other security devices and from business systems can be associated with IP CCTV images and recordings to provide full ‘situational awareness’, while cameras can be easily controlled and monitored even from a web browser, due to the built-in remote operation capabilities.
CCTV Surveillance supplies a full range of IP CCTV cameras and network solutions, designed to meet and exceed and customer’s requirements, regardless of the site’s size, location or particular features.
