Hikvision biometrics secure real estate developments in emirate of Ajman
AQAAR represents 90 percent of real estate projects in Ajman, and has a building portfolio which includes a university, schools hotels, office towers and apartments.
“We want to prevent crime, and to help people to continue to live and work peacefully in the buildings that we construct. To support this, we needed a specialized provider that was capable of delivering a cutting-edge, 24-hour networked video security solution featuring tens of thousands of cameras,” said Ghaleb Jaber, Executive Director, AQAAR, in a prepared statement. “Hikvision products are excellent: the intelligent AI-based technology was exactly what we were looking for. But just as importantly, Hikvision demonstrated excellent credibility in deploying large-scale video security projects of this type.”
Hikvision and partners developed an AI video security system now running on 40,000 cameras and eventually on over 50,000, for area protection. The company installed intrusion detection and facial recognition, plus ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) IP cameras at construction sites and parking entrances in hotels to allow access only to authorized vehicles. Key locations were secured with a centralized management system for performing automated under-vehicle checks at certain locations.
“For public security installations such as this, we always adopt a multi-phase approach,” said Mohammed Barakat, Account Manager for Hikvision MENA, in a prepared statement. “The first phase is the hardware installation. Phase two involves setting up the Centralized Management System, and creating one main control room that unites all video feeds. Then at phase three, we will switch on the AI capabilities of the cameras. This will unlock their intelligent features such as intrusion detection and facial recognition.”
According to Barakat, AQAAR will implement more capabilities tailored to urban planning and residents’ needs.
