A security LPR system, based in 42 Hikvision DS-2CD4012F-A cameras, They allow to monitor the traffic of the roads that surround the neighborhood of Sea Point in Cape Town. A solution that has led to a reduction in a 65% crime in the area.

Hikvision Sea Point

Sea Point is one of the rich and developed areas of Cape Town, but it was also one of the most dangerous neighborhoods, with one of the highest rates of crime in South Africa. Located a few kilometers to the West of the central business district of the city, access to Sea Point roads that are some of the most active with a number of roads leading in and out of the neighborhood.

To control this road traffic, the Administration decided to introduce a license plate recognition system (LPR) to allow monitoring roads and access routes to Sea Point. Its objective was to identify and keep track of each one of the vehicles that enter or leave the area and this is information with which to fight crime. The company responsible for the implementation of this project has been LPR Solutions which opted for the technology of Hikvision for its realization.

HikVision DS-2CD4012F“This project is the first LPR solution to large scale that has settled in Cape Town. The project posed a great challenge since it is an area with large influx of traffic, about 300.000 vehicles per hour, and, also, the LPR system had to be robust enough to cope with the speed of cars and weather conditions, both day and night. We needed tough cameras, "you can count on and that provide high image quality", explains Chris Hobbis LPR solutions.

To record the movements of the vehicles that came and went in the Sea Point area have been installed 42 networked cameras, each one dedicated to one lane of traffic surveillance. The LPR team took the install this security network infrastructure whose cameras are connected to the control center located in Sea Point that works 24×7.

The model chosen was the Hikvision DS-2CD4012F-A, a team of 1,3 megapixel offering a resolution of up to 1280 x 1024 in 60 FPS, It feeds through the PoE technology and incorporates features such as digital 3D noise reduction (3D-DNR), Intelligent face detection, Smart Codec, Smart VQD (detection of video quality) and bi-directional audio.

Smart Codec is a particularly important function in a situation of network infrastructure. Compared to traditional cameras, Hikvision smart cameras improve the image quality even in a 30% and reduce to the minimum requirements of load and system storage. "The result is crisp images under the most challenging conditions, so it is the ideal camera for surveillance in projects both large scale as in companies", clarifies Chris Hobbis.

Built by IP66 specification, It makes it a suitable equipment to withstand the weather and conditions that was to be submitted in this project, Since as I said Hobbis "moves on a high luminosity night of night and the speed of traffic in the area. These cameras provide a high quality in all lighting conditions, "and can focus on remote and responding to the needs of bandwidth and storage".

The installation made in Cape Town has been reduced a 65% in the neighborhood of Sea Point.
