~Public housing development sees 70 percent reduction in neighborhood crime with deployment of Avigilon surveillance solution~

VANCOUVER, CANADA, May 9, 2018 – Avigilon Corporation (“Avigilon”), a Motorola Solutions company, today announced it was selected by the Long Beach Housing Authority (LBHA) to improve safety for its residents in Long Beach, New York, USA.

Committed to providing high-quality housing assistance to its residents, the Long Beach Housing Authority is a government-managed public housing project that owns and manages over 370 affordable rental units. To enhance resident safety, the LBHA installed a complete Avigilon surveillance solution that includes Avigilon HD Pro, HD Dome and HD Multisensor cameras, as well as Avigilon Control Center (ACC) video management software and Avigilon network video recorders.

The LBHA system features Avigilon cameras with patented Avigilon self-learning video analytics, including the award-winning 4K HD Pro camera. Providing high image quality and accurate detection of people and vehicles in critical areas, these cameras notify security staff and allow them to zoom in and quickly identify and respond to potential security events. Avigilon HD Multisensor cameras were also chosen for their flexible design, which can capture multiple angles of street and property areas up to 360 degrees, enabling maximum scene coverage while minimizing blind spots. Using advanced search capabilities in ACC, LBHA’s operators can quickly search for and identify people and vehicles of interest, saving time and effort during critical investigations.
