Axis Communications announced the successful installation of a campus-wide surveillance system at Dayalbagh Educational Institute, Agra.  The unique feature of this project is that the surveillance system is powered by solar energy, resulting in a zero carbon footprint.

The 10,000- strong student community required an efficient and ecologically-conscious security solution to monitor the activities around the campus. The deployment is powered with 20 solar plants using rooftop panels across the entire campus. The Axis cameras provide real-time images, high-resolution zoom capability and round-the-clock monitoring.

Sudhindra Holla, Country Manager, India and SAARC, Axis Communications said: “We were very pleased to collaborate with Dayalbagh Educational Institute for this project because of their work ethic and the technological challenges in building a customized solution. The aim was to create a robust system that would be powered by clean energy.

"The challenge was to install a large-scale system that could surveil the campus spread over 100 acre without leaving any blind spots. This required a centralized datacenter with distributed monitoring centers connected across entire campus through underground optical fiber backbone.”

Prof. C.M. Markan, Department of Physics & Computer Science, Dayalbagh Educational Institute Agra, added: “DEI is known for its Work Experience courses where students work with faculty to build solutions. In tune with this, instead -of relying on any integrator, we preferred to build a Security Surveillance solution as an open laboratory, which serves as an ideal platform for skill development and research in surveillance analytics.

"We were pleased to partner with Axis Communications, which managed to surpass our expectations in this regard. Their technology proved to be highly reliable, with exceptional image quality, and superior compression capability that helps in keeping bandwidth low and recording depth high."
