Surveillance to maintain public order and citizen safety has always been a matter for the Keepers of Law and Order to look after. But the current atmosphere of criminality and fear has driven common decent citizens to start looking after themselves. CCTV’s are selling like hotcakes. But Security and keeping the Law is still a Police matter. Unless the owner is himself a Policeman, the observations from a CCTV, however unobtrusively mounted, are futile. But IPOLIS App, released by the Hanwha Techwin Company, offers just this centralized connecting platform. All the primary sensors, like CCTVs, can be connected wirelessly, and all channels can be observed and recorded continuously. But IPOLIS App can also be connected to the local as well as Central Police Stations to provide crime data and alerts. At the same time, since this App is basically compatible with iOS and Android devices only, the limited usefulness can only be augmented by extending IPOLIS for PC compatibility to PC’s and Macs.
