Smart City Surveillance
Increasing public safety and improving urban security
Today, more people live in cities than in rural areas, and by 2050, about 70 percent of the world’s population is expected to reside in urban areas. There is no place more complex and challenging to maintain safety and security than the urban environment. The risks are multi-pronged, with a list that runs long, and ranges from crime and terrorist threats to traffic management and natural disasters. Controlling and managing incidents in all of these areas is paramount to a smooth running city. Ensuring that our cities are secure, connected and sustainable is a major challenge but also an opportunity to improve the lives of billions of people along with the future of the planet itself.
Integration is key
Safe City as a concept has been adopted by many Indian cities and has evolved tremendously over the past few years. Safe City Solutions which were primarily designed for public safety, security and protection of assets, are increasingly designed to include additional intelligent systems and services, thereby becoming the first avatar of the Smart Cities.
The Citiforce safe city solution creates a single, unified networked platform giving everyone – Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs), first responders, Departments of Transportation, and other government agencies, as well as different city departments – full visibility for faster resolution of all types of incidents. Moreover, it provides automated and escalating pre-defined guidance, so that the best course of action is consistently taken no matter who is in the control center.
City Infrastructure Management Services - Intelligent Urban & Highway Traffic Management Systems (ITMS & HTMS)
Citiforce offerings are targeted towards addressing these everyday issues of civil life, thereby extending a safer and secure environment to the population on move.

Video Management Software (VMS) plays a vital role in today’s security and surveillance scenario. Security Center makes it easy to monitor thousands of cameras and systems from a centralized location. Manage alarms and find doors and cameras on map-based layouts of your city and facilities. Situational analytics are implemented over the VMS for more efficient and directional data capture.
