Downtown Miami, Florida has a long history of crimes related to mob and drug activities, and the city still ranks among the top of having one of the highest crime rates in the United States. In effort to make the city safer, the Miami Dade County pledged to improve its public safety. A key part of the plan was to deploy video surveillance systems at security hotspots in high-risk neighborhoods.
Proactively fighting against crime-related activities in the neighbourhood
The project took place at a County-owned housing community for low income families situated at the border between two counties where people got killed on a regular basis due to illegal activities. To take proactive security measures, the housing management was looking for high-resolution yet cost-effective network cameras that clearly capture details in the monitored scenes and would provide police officers with real-time, evidence-grade video streams in case of incidents. The cameras also had to perform well in low light situations when criminal activities are most likely to take place.
A wireless network surveillance system
Munway Technology, an experienced IP surveillance integrator based in Miami, set up a wireless network system with MESSOA NDR890 dome cameras, which were strategically installed at crime hotspots throughout the neighborhood. Without requiring extensive cabling, the wireless network enabled live streaming video to be sent to the NVR server at main office wirelessly and saved considerable installation cos ts. The clearly-captured images could be used to retrospectively investigate any illegal activities via the high-resolution playback footage.
The NDR890 was chosen due to its excellent video quality and night vision that make the camera perfect for monitoring and positive identification. The NDR890 features the mechanical ICR filter and the built-in 25M IR LED to deliver sharp, detailed captures even in total darkness. In addition to image quality, the vandal-resistant housing is ideal for tamper-prone locations like in this case.
Superior performance impressed all parties

The project manager from Munway was especially impressed with the MESSOA’s proprietary Lumii technologies at low light without seeing a lot of video noise. “We have been selling IP surveillance for many years”, said the project leader. “We were excited that MESSOA is able to provide us with the cost effective solution with exceptional performance over the other camera manufacturers that we have been buying the products from.”
The housing management was also very pleased with the image quality that the NDR890 provided. With the surveillance cameras in place, the security personnel can now easily monitor the hotspots at all times and have a better control over the situation around the neighborhood. The crime rates are expected to drop significantly, as those involved in crime-related activities will be fully aware they have now been closely watched.
