President of Euralarm: ”Cyber attacks are a big challenge for smart cities”

Stockholm, Sweden

In an interview with Detektor TV Magazine, Enzo Peduzzi, President of Euralarm, stresses that cyber attacks are a major problem for smart cities.  “We see problems almost every day, but there are initiatives from the industry making it secure”, he says.

Enzo Peduzzi defines a smart city as a city that strives to use its resources efficiently and has a high level of safety and security so the city will be resilient in case of accidents.

He also says we need smart cities because of the increasing urbanisation.

”A smart city works like a city today; it just has more intelligent transportation systems, uses energy in a better way, and is able to recover quickly in case of an accident. If the population inside the city feels safe and secure, it is a smart city”, he says.

As more and more devices are being connected to the internet, he stresses that cyber security is a big risk for smart cities.

Enzo Peduzzi says: ”This is one of the biggest challenges we have, not only in smart cities but everywhere. The hackers do not sleep, but I am confident that if we take the cyber security part and the physical security part into account, we can manage this in a proper way.”

Dahua Technology launches ePoE IP system

Dahua Technology Co., Ltd. is launching a system of extended Power over Ethernet (ePoE) devices including cameras, network switches and network recorders. Dahua ePoE IP system supports up to 800 metres between the ePoE camera and the ePoE network switch or ePoE NVR with an embedded switch. It overcomes the limitations of traditional Ethernet and POE (both restrict cable distances to around 100 metres (328 feet) between network ports) and eliminates the need for Ethernet extension devices or additional network switches.

The future is here - when surveillance meets AI

What will the world be like when surveillance meets AI (Analytics Intelligence)?

According to an IHS report from September 2016, security camera shipments continue to grow at 14.1% CAGR and are predicted to reach 190 million units in 2020, despite revenue growth having slowed to 8.1% CAGR. There are just too many cameras and video footage to be digested by human operators. Most security video footage is erased or over-written without being watched. Video Analytics (VA) Technology was once perceived as a solution to automate the utilisation of abundant video footage resources. By means of identifying and tagging the appearance of certain patterns in a video, the VA or AI system could perform search and run statistics on it.
