One collaboration at a time

Adopting open architecture command and control surveillance software as the cornerstone of a hybrid solution opens up almost limitless potential for integration. This does not mean, however, that town and city authorities have to integrate a wide range of systems from the outset in order to see any benefit.

A small number of strategic integrations, perhaps focusing on a single key organizational collaboration at a time, can make a huge difference.

Those responsible for public space protection are looking towards surveillance in order to achieve smarter integration and harness the power of data.
A good, and increasingly common, starting point for authorities taking the Smart City journey is to look at integrations that will facilitate more effective collaborative working with the police.

Integrating remote evidence management software, for example, facilitates secure 24-hour access by key third-party organizations such as the police and HMRC, in line with data protection principles. Selected organizations can request to view and seize footage without having to physically attend the surveillance control room – thus reducing man hours, costs, and ultimately speeding up investigations.
