Inside and out
The PZ8121W cameras have been installed on top of the dashboard in patrol cars for monitoring the vehicle’s interior and the immediate surrounding area. By taking advantage of the camera’s built-in 3GPP mobile connectivity and WiFi support, images captured by the camera are transmitted over the Internet to a control center at police headquarters for monitoring, recording, and management. Staff there can also take advantage of the PZ8121W’s motorized pan, tilt, and 10x zoom capabilities to focus on specific objects, persons, or events of interest.
Each patrol car has not just one, but three VIVOTEK cameras, as two IP8332 camera have been installed on the roof of the PMM’s patrol cars, and tasked with monitoring vehicles in the proximity and capturing imagery for use. Each camera is connected to an Internet-capable PC with which the PMM has equipped each patrol car. Based under the proposal of the Technical Services of the General Security Management of the Madrid Council, Plettac Electronics has developed an automated license plate recognition (LPR) system, which integrates the high-resolution IP8332 cameras, the PC, and constantly updated databases to provide real-time identification and matching of license plate numbers, immediately alerting officers to the presence of stolen vehicles or other vehicles of interest.
