Dahua Safeguards Public Transport of Guadalajara in Mexico


HANGZHOU, China/November 3, 2015 — Dahua Technology, a world-leading manufacturer and supplier of video surveillance products headquartered in Hangzhou, China secures more than 5,000 buses in Guadalajara, Mexico.

Guadalajara is the capital and largest city of the Mexican state of Jalisco, and the seat of the municipality of Guadalajara. Mexico's fourth most populous municipality is reported to be challenged by crime including: robberies, assaults, car thefts, etc. Mass transit is generally considered unsafe. Purse-snatching and armed robberies have been common on buses. Drivers sometimes illegally put the bus fare in their own pockets.

Another issue addressed by the new system is traffic accidents, which have remained untracked without security cameras. To reduce serious crimes that continued to take place on buses, security cameras are required to be installed on all buses by transport regulations since 2014.

Dahua plays a vital role in protecting drivers and passengers on buses in Guadalajara by providing more than 1,250 pieces of security equipment for over 5,000 buses. This equipment includes:
Dahua CA-DW480D700TVL Mobile Dome Camera features 3.6mm fixed lens (2.8mm optional). The vandal-proof analog cameras are installed beside the driver’s seat, in the middle of the bus and at the rear, monitoring all the areas inside the bus. With IR LEDs range up to 10 meters, it can deliver great day/night performance in any lighting conditions.

Meanwhile, Dahua 0404ME-U-GC, 4 Channel Mobile Standalone DVR is set at the middle front of the bus, which supports SXGA real-time live view and full channel synchronous real-time playback. It helps record traffic from the front and two sides outside the bus.

A reliable system is the key of operating video surveillance in moving vehicles. Dahua perfectly fit the requirement by offering a stable, smooth and ruggedized system. With the equipment of specialized cameras, DVRs and software platforms, high solution videos can be captured both inside and outside the city bus while traffic conditions can be detected in advance to avoid accidents.

Dahua enables live video and access to video storage in low-bandwidth conditions.  The solution can use 3G to deliver this access to evidence when an emergency occurs. The solution also provides other extended functions, such as people counting, bus route management, etc.

"It’s a great honor to cooperate with a local agent company and system integrator in such a project,” said William Zhou, Sales Director of Latin-America at Dahua Technology. “We are proud to provide value-added products and service to our clients, and to make an effort in securing the safety of people and assets in Guadalajara. With Dahua’s outstanding products and proven mobile solution, I know there will be chances for more cooperation within Mexico.”
