A Smart City Is A Safe City

With the right process, people, and technology, any community can become smarter and safer.

There comes a time when community leaders struggle to make their community more efficient and smarter. Forward-thinking organizations institute policies and procedures that enable them to make data-driven decisions, maintain constant awareness of community activities, and stay connected with all of their constituents.

A smart city is an urban area that uses different types of electronic data collection sensors to supply information which is used to manage assets and resources efficiently. This includes data collected from citizens, devices, and assets that is processed and analyzed to monitor and manage traffic and transportation systems, power plants, water supply networks, waste management, law enforcement, information systems, schools, libraries, hospitals, and other community services. The smart city concept integrates information and communication technology (ICT), and various physical devices connected to the network (the Internet of things or IoT) to optimize the efficiency of city operations and services and connect to citizens. Smart city technology allows city officials to interact directly with both community and city infrastructure and to monitor what is happening in the city and how the city is evolving.

ICT is used to enhance quality, performance and interactivity of urban services, to reduce costs and resource consumption and to increase contact between citizens and government. Smart city applications are developed to manage urban flows and allow for real-time responses. A smart city may therefore be more prepared to respond to challenges than one with a simple “transactional” relationship with its citizens. Yet, the term itself remains unclear to its specifics and therefore, open to many interpretations.


Effective smart communities do so by applying a hub approach that connects people with the information and technology to drive improved quality of life, innovation, and better choices. Get the most out of your location technology investment by exploiting a combination of Internet of Things (IoT) devices, big data, inclusive apps, and community feedback to gain previously unimagined insight.

The Survail appliance uses AI based machine learning to analyze your video surveillance network and automatically recognize all possible license plates and creates a master MetaVideo© database that is fully search-able. Officers can easily search for any license plate (even partials) within a date range and in a specific map based view of your city. Survail then shows you the path that vehicle took over time on your Esri ArcGIS map. 

Survail delivers clear and actionable video evidence correlated to license plate detection events. Tie suspects or victims to crime scenes, build circumstantial evidence for more advanced warrants and solve crimes faster so officers can get back on patrol. This augmented intelligence enables one law enforcement officer to perform the work of many officers in less time and at lower cost. You can easily track and find stolen cars/ plates, match plates to locations, match Amber alerts, create BOL watch lists for plates and any number of crime solving and community policing initiatives. 

Get Smart. Get Safe.

Survail is a Law Enforcement investigation tool that analyzes your cities video surveillance footage to find every license plate possible on every camera in your network (even on cameras that aren’t dedicated to ALPR) and then allows you to map every-where and every-when a particular license plate has been seen. 

Your investigators can instantly find everywhere a suspects license plate was seen on any set of days and clearly see the path they took through your city. Tie suspects, witnesses or victims to crime scenes, locations and/or times using warrant-less license plate surveillance searches of your own video surveillance network. 

Why waste time watching vast amounts of video footage? Let Survail do the tedious work for you.
