|Bosch’s AutoDome cameras are integrated with Firetide’s wireless solution to stream video to the police department
Not long after three college students were killed in a Newark schoolyard in 2007, city officials announced plans to install over 100 surveillance cameras via a wireless network by the year 2009 in order to deter crime.
Let's Think Wireless (LTW) was contracted to design and implement a high-speed wireless network for the City of Newark’s police department.
LTW chose Bosch Security System’s AutoDome modular digital cameras to install on traffic signals and to mount on lamp posts and public/private buildings throughout Newark. In addition, LTW chose Firetide to integrate their wireless solution with Bosch’s AutoDome cameras to stream video to the police department where an operator can monitor activity throughout the city.
According to LTW and a recent site visit from Bosch, the City of Newark plans to expand their network further this summer. The City of Newark’s CCTV system currently contains over 100 cameras and covers more than 24 square miles. The system utilizes a mesh based wireless system using Firetide products at the camera node sites and a Cisco/IBM gigabit based backbone. The head end control system is Genetec/DVTel.
The integration between Firetide and Bosch is running smoothly.
