CITY of Perth’s Smart Cities CCTV Precinct tender has been won by Engie Services – DESA, formerly DESA Australia. The tender, which closed last August, involves design, supply, installation and support of smart devices as part of Perth’s Smart Cities and Suburbs Programme.
The overall programme includes technology development and installation of hardware for 4 projects – Smart Precinct, Smart Irrigation, Smart Sustainability and Data Hub. The projects will test the application of equipment and smart technologies in real life settings, putting Perth at the forefront in smart city innovation.
According to chair commissioner Eric Lumsden, the new technology deployed as part of the Smart Cities and Suburbs Programme not only aims to improve quality of life but will provide an acessible knowledge platform for residents, visitors, businesses and tech start-ups in Perth.
“The Smart Precinct trial project in East Perth, will use CCTV-based sensors and analytics to measure vehicle and pedestrian activity around the new Matagarup Bridge and Optus Stadium,” Lumsden said.
“This data will provide valuable insights and assist decision making for City of Perth planners, businesses, and residents in the area, as well as enhancing the efficiencies of existing safety and security measures.”
Smart Cities CCTV Precinct tender winner ENGIE Services DESA specialises in data networks, communications, automation and security solutions. It was formed by bringing together Trilogy Building Services, Spectrum Fire & Security, DESA, Cowley Services, West Australian Mechanical Services, Melbourne-based Pro AV Solutions and Cofely Australia to provide customers with multi-disciplined building maintenance services managed by a single account manager.
