The Moscow Department of Information Technology is working on the issue of open access to the surveillance system on the air, without the possibility of viewing the archive.
A test Internet Resource has been created, which is already used by several thousand active users of urban electronic services. But the final decision on launching the service to the masses has not yet been made.
In parallel, in several districts, an experiment is being carried out with the installation of intercoms, when residents can watch the broadcast from the cameras at home on TV on a special channel.
What cameras can you get
The surveillance system includes several basic types of cameras:
- Driveways. They are outside in the front door, their field of vision is the entire space in front of the house. than 100,000 such cameras have been installed in the capital. This also includes those that are inside the front ones, but they did not install them en masse within the framework of the city program;
- Yard cameras are dome cameras that are mounted on the roof of one or more houses. They are controllable and have 10x optical zoom;
- Cameras in crowded places (MMS) are located in pedestrian zones, busy places, at metro entrances, and so on;
- ITS (Intelligent Transportation System). Department of Transportation cameras installed at intersections.
You can find out what cameras are near your home and what gets into their lens on the official portal of the open data portal. There is a register of courtyard surveillance cameras and a register of road surveillance cameras published.
